Helped by the great weather, which allowed us to sit outside for lunch, the food and service was very good. The fish chowder is to die for. Very pleasant indeed.

Delightful hotel. A varied menu with plenty of choice for all tastes and the chef can tailor make a dish to suit if required. The produce is grown in the hotel garden and it was nice to see the chef collect broccoli and herbs for the evening meal. Superbly trained young staff who served the dishes with quiet efficiency.

I was treated to lunch here by a friend. We both had 3 courses and thoroughly enjoyed them. Great service by 2 very polite waiters. We chose to have our desserts and coffee outside as it was a beautiful afternoon.

The food was excellent, wonderful presentation, great taste, fresh local ingredients. So many excellent choices, but might I suggest the Tamworth Pork.

Absolutely loved this place! Mixed feelings about the dinner, the majority of the dishes were amazing, some were quite poor, however I would still repeat and pay the 55 pounds as the experience was unforgettable. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. Service and hotel atmosphere was outstanding. They gave us the wrong room, this was... More

For 55 pond, you do expect a real nice diner. Abvious they try but is was not tastfull at all. strange combinations (salmon with grapefruit?), too long cooked fish, much too salty (no good chef use much salt) dessert almost too sweet to eat. Big surprise next morning: breakfast was great!

We had cycled here from the forest lodges on Loch Lubnaig on one of the hottest days of the year so, to be honest, anything would have been welcome. However, it was a lovely spot to recover with great service, freshly baked scones and a fabulous view. We paid under £10 for our cream scones and pot of tea which... More

Loved the brekkie with fresh made scones and marmalade follwoed by something light and followed by some Scottish fayre usually smoked fish. Perfect way to start the day. Evening meals are devine.

We walked here for a drink from the Loch Voil Hostel on the other side of the loch (about 25 mins). The setting is absolutely stunning outside and really cosy inside. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent bar and highly recommended.

The location and the accommodation. Extremely comfortable, quiet and attractive rooms. I feel that it may be living on its past reputation and that other expanding interests in the company group may be leading to the managers taking their eye off the ball.
