Fine Dining and Excellent Service

Select the bay window overlooking the gardens and river for a romantic highlight. The cuisine is excellent and presentation picture perfect. Service par excellence. Dress for the occasion, you can't overdress!

This is more of a manor house than a castle. No moat or curtain walls, but a very nice accommodation with large rooms and great service. I was a little disappointed because I was expecting something similar to Ashford Castle in Ireland, but having said that, it's a very nice place to stay. I thought the dinner we had there... More

Superb setting lacking a manager. No one at reception to welcome us, waiters with absolutely no training. No one seems to be in charge to look after young trainees who reach across diners when serving. The only capable member of staff was the sommelier. The food is good but lacks sparkle.

Note that this review is for the restaurant service. If interested, I have another review for the hotel. The setting is a wonder. Lunches are served either in the grand room and parlor on small coffee tables or where you wish, or at outside tables facing the fields and loch. Sandwiches are well presented, but are nothing special. Tea service... More

We couldn't get a booking to begin with but the manager was so kind and we had the most amazing afternoon tea in the most exquisite surroundings. Wonderful experience and very very posh. Service great. Staff VERY attentive- We couldn't ask for anything more

This hotel definitely has its aristocratic charm, private and discreet. The building itself is not quite as extravagant in comparing some larger country estate; however, the standard room was very pleasant. I enjoyed the most were the garden and the scenery of its surrounding rather than the building itself. Also, its food were absolutely the best, its world renowned chef,... More

If you want to spend 3+ hours at dinner, most of it waiting, this is your spot. We finally walked out as we had spent 3 hours there and we're still waiting for food. One of my worst meals anywhere!

It is very hard to exceed the overwhelming impression one gets when walking into Inverlochy Castle which was, by far, the best in our luxury vacation. This restaurant is measuring up to this challenge by serving excellent food in the most romantic atmosphere.
