“Lovely modern hotel and atmosphere although we didnt stay, had dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Went for homemade pie night...food was lovely...atmosphere very nice with mix of rustic and modern surroundings. Very reasonable price. Waiters all pleasant bar one gentleman. Very very ignorant ( short haired gentleman) Asked what we wanted...my partner gave order then he just walked from me without asking or saying anything. Needless to say...she had desert I had none.

If you are after basic but good value food Balloch Hotel has a decent menu.

After looking around the area this restaurant was much better than the cheap eats also in town. My partner and I both had one of the 'home cooked' piers and each was served hot in good time.

The pie was tasty but don't expect too much for your £7- £9 average main meal cost. My chips were basic pre frozen 'french fries' and what looked like pre frozen 'Birds Eye' peas. Other sections do specify 'hand cut chips' so maybe these were better.

There is also ample free parking and a very nice walk by the Loch (or an open fire if you prefer to just relax after your meal.

All in all nothing to rave about but if you're in Balloch this is as good as you'll get without spending much more at the Cameron House Hotel restaurants.

I havnt stayed at the hotel but have ate in the restaraunt many times and I've never been disappointed in the quality of the food nor the quality of the staff ,its set in the heart of Balloch at the mouth of Loch Lomond and it is a great place to eat after a great day out at Lomond shores .

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Visited on Spec for Sunday lunch. Nice location and attractive restaurant. Range of specials was excellent and not too expensive. The staff were great. There was a problem with part of my wife's meal which was handled well by the staff. Apart from that, the food was good. Some nice real ales were available as well.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Staff were pleasant and helpful, and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. We had a late dinner and decided to go back the next day for Sunday lunch, we had a wee problem with the roast potatoes and the waitress immediately changed them and thanked us for our feedback. All in all we had a great stay.

Room Tip: I would probably ask to keep away from the security doors which banged at night

Visited with a friend for a chat and we had coffee (unlimited), 2 scones with jam and cream at a cost of £4.95 each - excellent value, served in pleasant surroundings by pleasant staff.
