Stopped for break as traffic held up due to accident. A beautiful friendly bar/restaurant although not eating were given table overlooking the loch. The staff very friendly environment spotless and very up to date with maintaining a clean crisp decor. Wine not overpriced will defiantly be back to try accommodation and meals as menu looked brilliant!

Ordered fish tea. Fish was thicker at one end so was under cooked. Asked for Coffee which arrived and was absolutely freezing. This was replaced and replacement was acceptable.

Came here in the past and blown away. Came here today and wished I hadn't bothered. The views are spectacular,still, but the service was indifferent, felt like I was intruding on the staffs "downtime" and the food? Chain restaurant standard fried mass produced. Really not good. Will not go back to eat, maybe s coffee for the views

Always on our list if in the area. Always busy and it's easy to see why. Diverse and varied menu offers something for everyone. Service is super-efficient and performed by staff who just 'get on with it'. Pricing is fair given the service, decor and surroundings. Only slight negative was that the 'sundaes' dont quite reach the quality of the... More

While I took the outstandingly enjoyable seaplane trip from the loch nearby, my wife went on a recce for options for lunch. Having had coffee in a nearby restaurant she then went down the road to the Duck Bay restaurant. The first place had less of a choice of menu and was definitely overpriced, seemingly playing on its supposed reputation.... More

Dropped in for an afternoon tea/coffee and cake, and discovered this new addition to the hotel facilities, which was excellent. Super wee room, nice view, friendly & efficient server, excellent choice of patisseries, lovely coffee - what more could you want.

We discovered this hotel unfortunately at the end of our holiday or would have eaten there every day! The food was excellent as was the service. Views of the Loch were stunning and on a very dreich day the restaurant and the newly opened cafe were lovely and warm. I highly recommend it.
