Dined in the restaurant after passing on 27th June 2015. Were seated in the lounge, hotel was very quiet. I am gluten free so was slightly worried that I wouldn't have much choice, but the waitress went off and checked with the chef and I enjoyed a Rocket, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad, and a... read more

The present chef at this hotel's restaurant really knows his craft. The food is so well presented, and the taste is just as good. We were amazed that the restaurant was not buzzing with people to take advantage of this great food; maybe we went on a particularly quiet night. What was surprising was that the car park was full,... More

The Loch Kinnord restaurant is a fine place to go for a meal that's a little special. You can chill in the comfy lounge before or after and enjoy the highland atmosphere of this slightly upmarket hotel.

In May 2015 I stayed at your hotel for three nights during a grouptrip in Scotland. I appreciated very much the beautiful and comfortable rooms, the excellent meals and, last but not least, the heartwarming welcome and care from our host. In the midst of this splendid part of Scotland, Loch Kinord is a great place to have dinner

Food delicious, beautifully presented, service excellent. Cosy restaurant, would be wonderful in the depths of winter with the log stove burning

Eaten here more than once and always enjoyable . Scottish fare sourced locally and well cooked and presented. Short but comprehensive wine list providing a surprisingly wide choice of wines. Pleasant service. Dining room decor is very Scottish. Owner most welcoming.

Warm welcome on entry, the staff were well organised and the food beautifully presented and "moreish!" A quaint Hotel with some of the best food within a 30 mile radius. Some people may say a tad expensive but I'm happy to pay for quality! Have not stayed in the Hotel but highly recommend the dining experience!

Service was very good. Price was a trifle expensive, and the fixed price menu unexpected. But we were staying at the hotel and it was convenient.

Six of us dined here while staying at the hotel and it was a great experience. We started with drinks in the comfortable lounge and were escorted to our table by our personable host. Service was impeccable and the delicious food was beautifully and inventively presented. Wonderful sticky toffee pudding!
