We stayed two nights at the Loch Kinord Hotel. The owner and his wife made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed our fresh made breakfast and dinner. The entourage felt really scottish. Jantine & Ad K.

The lodges are perfectly as described. In a quiet wooded area with a small playground for children close by ( though my children loved playing in the wood). The lodges are excellent and look exactly like the photos on hoseasons. Very clean with all bedding and towels provided. The area provides good access to many walks and is only short... More

Had previously stayed at the hotel a few years ago. The decor was rather tired but the food was good and the staff very helpful. Having recently moved to the area we booked a table for family and friends to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. The meal was reasonably good if a little overpriced. The decor was still dated. Despite... More
