Having read other reviews we were looking forward to our meal when staying in the hotel. Staff were very attentive, view second to none but meal was really just average. I had the steak which was quite a cheap cut but all that was on offer, it was okay..my husband had the duck which was rather dry. All in all,... More

We had a lovely bar meal here to celebrate my husband's birthday. Suffice to say the staff are friendly, the food to die for and we had a 10% discount from our bill as we were staying down the road at the lovely Lochend chalets. A children's menu is available and the views from the bar area across the lake... More

We had a light lunch at the Lake of Menteith and were very happy with the Cullen Skink soup which is a Scottish speciality and very good it is too. The setting is beautiful and we would definitely go back there again to eat.

Stopped by for lunch today with my wife, we waited 45 minutes for two artichoke and buffalo cheese salads to arrive. They were very good, then another 30 minutes for our main courses. I chose one of the daily specials, a home-made Venison burger, which was very small, over cooked, burnt at the edges and dry. It also tasted of... More

Thank you for visiting our Hotel and we are sorry you clearly did not enjoy your experience. Your server was correct but perhaps should not have been so forthright, the night prior the hotel suffered from a massive power surge which destroyed all our electrical equipment throughout the hotel. This should not have impinged on your experience so much as... More

Went for dinner with my husband, and it was perfect! First,if your lucky enough to be seated looking at at the lake and the wildlife, well.. That's a bonus! The menu has a great variety, from burgers... Fish, game, and I had a risotto, delicious! My husband had fish, and said it was wonderful! Reasonable too!

Visited today following advice on site which labelled hotel as dog friendly Not the case as we were refused entry to the bar area with our calm and friendly pooch. I'm therefore unable to comment further on the services of this hotel
