Popped in for lunch, really tasty Cullen skink and fresh chicken burger. Friendliest eatery by far and interesting story of the Old Smiddy building. You've got to take a look in to view the original ceiling. Very children friendly and great to finish off with a yummy ice cream. We're glad we chose here over other places and will be... More

After reading some of the reviews we decided to pop in for dinner. Waiting staff and atmosphere were lovely but food was awful. The 'hand cooked salted chips' were supermarket value oven chips at best. The steak & ale steak pie was gloopy & soggy. Did not stay for b&b. Doubt we will return.

We had 1 night at this B&B during our tour of the Scotland's Highlands. We had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and both meals were superb: fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked. The room was clean, well-furnished and very comfortable. It also had a wonderful view over river. Excellent stay from start to finish!

What a spot, the Hotel is lovely, the staff friendly and helpful. Being gluten and lactose intolerant, it can often be difficult to eat out and be away from home, but a suitable cooked breakfast was served, there is a good range of Gluten free choices on the menu in the restaurant, we ate there all three nights it was...

A very enjoyable dining experience was had on a rather damp Saturday evening in April. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The menu was extensive, very reasonably priced and with decent sized portions.

This is a must place to go and eat! The food is fantastic, the setting is amazing and the staff are lovely. Thanks to Lin, Devon and everyone else for making us feel so welcome and giving us 5* service. We've had one of the best holidays ever staying in Killin and will definitely be visiting again!

This was a clean well appointed hotel in Killin and we enjoyed our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the breakfast was lovely. Parking was avaliable though there were only a few spaces. However there is a decent car park a few minutes walk (if that) from the hotel. A good choice.

While holidaying in the Loch Tay Glamping site nearby we found this gem of a restaurant. Not only was the food delicious (I had ribeye steak and chunky chips, my gf had spaghetti and meatballs and my son had the ham and pineapple pizza) but we had no reservation and the restaurant was fully booked but they squeezed us in...

We were doing a Scotland road trip and my sister suggested us to book here because she went there too: excellent choice! The people are very friendly, the room is perfect, clean and glamour. I suggest to book for the dinner because the food is so tasty especially for the apple butter cake, so yammi!

We have spent a very good day in this B&B. We also make a reservation for the dinner, that was awesome. The rooms are very nice, and the people very kind and helpfull. The sound of the waterfalls accompanied us all night and let us to sleep better. Thanks for everything. We do recommend this place.
