Stopped off at Lake of Monteith Hotel for a meal on our way home from Aberfeldy. Our party consisted of myself, my husband and 3 children aged 7, 5 and 1. My husband had heard good things from a fishing buddy so we decided to give it a go. Friendly welcoming atmosphere. Furnishings and decor beautiful. Log fire always a... More

Had a lovely lunch here and although I hadn't been for a few years, it was still excellent and you will just love the view over the lake. The staff were very friendly and the food was lovely and a good choice. If you want somewhere to go with a nice drive through lovely countryside, then you will not be... More

Visited the restaurant today with a friend. I've been a few times before. As ever the location and scenery is lovely but the meals are overpriced for what they are. The menu is very limited for vegetarians like myself and I was very annoyed today to find that a very simple cous cous vegetarian dish was more expensive that the... More

We had lunch here with friends on a very cold, windy day and the open fire was a very welcome sight. The views out over the Lake are beautiful - even in winter. There was a reasonable choice of items on the a la carte menu and all our questions were answered patiently and helpfully - with one exception: my... More

We recently stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. The food was consistently good. All really fresh ingredients cooked very well. The views from our room were incredible, looking over the lake. The main thing for us though was the staff. They were so nice and really accomodating and no request was too much. Thank you for...
