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.

Very welcoming people! Great atmospheric B and B on a good location next to the falls. Very nice bedding in the Paris room, small room as advertised so no surprises there. Real value for money I must say. Breakfast was fine, nice options the choose from. Owners were very helpful in directions the next day and very personal. Shower was... More

The owners weren't available to check us in but had someone from their other establishment get us set up. It wasn't a bother to us, though. The room was nice and I enjoyed hearing the falls at night. Breakfast was good too!

My wife and I were in Killin, as we approached the Old Smiddy she noticed the sign for ice creams so we went in and bought one. We were very impressed with the atmosphere in the restaurant so we decided to book for the evening meal. The steak and ale pie was really good so we enquired about the B&B... More

We decided on a quick snack before venturing onto the loch for a family Kayak and were pleasantly surprised but this interesting , clean and lovely cosy restaurant . My son's had the incredibly large children's meatballs and my husband and I selected the home made soups that were hearty and delicious. Staff incredibly friendly and not imposing making this...
