Check in is at the restaurant bar. Not a friendly greeting! When we asked about parking, got told across the road in the public areas, however there were no car bays available. So had to tow our suitcases down the street. Our room was spacious and the beds comfy. The bathroom was adequate and clean. Breakfast was OK. The inn... More

I wanted to spend a night near Loch Lomond on my way to Glasgow and wanted something with a traditional feel. I made a perfect choice. The Inn a very short (2 blocks) walk from the train station and near the Sweeney boat tours and the Loch. The rooms are pristine with lovely warm wood work. You check in through... More

We received a very warm welcome when we arrived (very late in the evening and well past check in hours) at WHI. We found a clean and spacious room. The bathroom was very clean and modern. Breakfast was good. There was a choice of Scottish breakfast, toast, cornflakes, bacon or sausage roll (from memory). The hotel is in a great... More

Stayed 1 night for business. Strange hotel, as doesn't serve breakfast until 9 and we had to away before then. They did offer a continental breakfast to be left at our room. Worst breakfast of my life. Cardboard cornflakes, warm milk, garlic tinged croissant, and out of date yoghurt. To make matters worse, had to ring doorbell for 5 minutes,... More

We stayed at the Waterhouse in for two days for family wedding. We received a very warm welcome, the room was completely spotless and well equipped (I loved that there were extra pillows in the wardrobe so we didn't have to ask!) and breakfast was an utter delight thanks to excellent service and very tasty food! I am also glad... More

Visited The Waterhouse last year on a day trip to Balloch & enjoyed the meal that was served, so decided to make a return visit this year. The meal was every bit as good as it was previously & was served by pleasant attentive waitresses who made our visit most enjoyable. The downside of my visit was the prices charged... More

We did not stay in the inn but popped in for a bite to eat, as we were just out for the day and ended up in Ballach. The food was amazing and great value and the service was excellent. I was so impressed I have decided to book for a weekend break which I am looking forward to. So... More

I recently stayed for a little over a week at the Water. House Inn and was so very pleased with my experience. The staff is incredibly friendly and accomodating. By the 4th night we already felt like family! I had the full breakfast every morning and now that I'm home, I find myself missing it. We had lunch and dinner... More
