Stayed at The Mains of Taymouth for a week and was very happy that The Courtyard bar allowed in dogs. On arrival on a cold saturday afternoon we had a quick drink before unpacking, and we were very surprised at how nice the place was. Lovely building with plenty of leather sofas, a lovely log burning stove in the middle. It really did look so romantic and the ambience was lovely. So we decided to try the food out on the Sunday afternoon after a long walk. Well what a disappointment. Only homemade soup and a 1/2 a sandwich, nothing special - you can't go wrong with that -can you!!!!! leek and potato soup was like dishwater with no seasoning at all - BLT sandwich with very very fatty bacon, limp lettuce and crisps which were out of date by2 months. It is expensive so we would have expected more. We didn't even get a check back from the staff and they didn't even ask if we enjoyed the meal (even though it was only 1/2 eaten. Hence we didn't eat again which was a shame but we did go back for a few drinks in the evening which was really nice.

This place could be a gold mine and we hope that changes will be made to the food.

On a recent trip to the Kenmore hotel my husband and I spent a very relaxing evening on comfy sofas in the bar. We were entertained by Billy and Andre who both made our visit most relaxing and enjoyable. (Turned lights down to create a very pleasant ambiance) Thank you boys.

This relaxed bar/lounge/restaurant is a great place to relax and refuel oneself after a day walking in the hills or along the loch and river.

My wife and I went to the Courtyard for an evening meal whilst on a short stay in Kenmore. We liked the atmosphere in the bar area with it sofas, wood burning stove and huge airy feel, very modern. We ate in the bar as it was very quite with no one in the restaurant area plus we felt it would be warmer. My wife had the haddock risotto which was delicious and I had the special 3 course meal with a burger which was also very good. We shared my starter and dessert which were both very tasty. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I would recommend it to everyone.
