I've been here before and it was really good but this time it was terrible my starter of tomato and mozzarella was fridge cold? Is it not supposed to be at room temperature! My main course lacked flavour and my dessert was awful. It seems to be a lack of skill in the kitchen. I won't be returning... read more

My wife and I were residents at the hotel from the 27 to 30 December on a DBB basis. The food at the restaurant is tasty and a bit different. If staying for a longer period would wonder what I would choose after a few meal times. Not a big choice. Food is served pleasantly but is let down by... More

As we were staying at the hotel on a DBB rate we ended up dining twice at the Kailyard Restaurant, even though there was a set menu the choices made selection difficult but must say that the food could not be faulted, the staff were efficient and friendly and the time between courses was spot on, would recommend without hesitation.

Nick Nairn's restaurant is very nice. Packed with locals eating there, not just hotel guest. Very good food, great service. Enjoyed it. Breakfast also served here - excellent. We lingered until 11 am, and no pressure to leave.

Had a lovely 3 course meal here as part of the Twixmas deal. I had the separate vegetarian menu and food was fabulous (menu a bit heavy on the goats cheese but can't complain as usually don't get much choice for veggies these days, hope the veggie menu changes with the seasons) food was cooked very well and deserts were...

Stayed at the hotel on their Twixmas dinner bed and breakfast deal. We had two nice evening meals in the Kailyard. Our food was generally good, service was generally friendly and efficient, nice surroundings. Only minor complaint was both nights service ground to a halt after our mains, having to wait ages for plates to be cleared, to order dessert... More

My expectation for this restaurant was high as it had been recommended and especially since Nick Nairn had endorsed it and put his name to it! Sadly the levels of service were less than expected and had to be encouraged to take our coats and order drinks. The staff seemed to be busy doing something but not sure what and... More

The service was fantastic, Rachel our waitress for the evening was very attentive without being intrusive. My starter was the least enjoyable part of the meal, the pulled pork was dry and the salad needed some kind of dressing, whole thing didn't work together. But hubbies fishcake was great. For mains; I had the halibut, mash and wilted spinach and... More
