“Welcome at The Winnock”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

Stopped here for a simple lunch and received a very warm welcome from the friendly staff.
I had lentil soup and a ham and tomato sandwich and my husband had the steak baguette.
The food was of a good quality and value for money.
This place has great potential, cosy and comfortable with real log fires and exposed natural stone work but the dated furniture looks like it surrvived a 1970's social club and the glare from the gambling machine detracted from the country pub feel.
It wouldn't take much to make this a fabulous wee hostelry.

We have just come back from a two night break in this hotel and would certainly go back. The quality of the food was excellent and the service quick and pleasant. The room we had (81) was large ,clean and comfortable with a fu ll size,and I do mean full size bath. It was unfortunate about the view, there wasnt one, but as we were only in the room at night time it didnt really matter. Log fire, good food excellent service.

Room Tip: f the weather is nice pay extra for a room with a balcony

We recently stayed here as part of our honeymoon. The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. The food, both in the bar and the restaurant was of a pleasingly high standard and not bad value for money.

We were disappointed with the room itself though. We had booked through Late Rooms.com and were led to believe the room we had paid for was of a higher standard than normal. Having experienced hassle and stress on the journey to the hotel, after an exhausting wedding day, we decided we'd accept it. I'm sure it was merely a small administrative error. Although spacious and clean the bathroom fittings looked tired and the sink impossibly small (not even as wide as a toothbrush). There was rust on the shower curtain rail and black scum on the inside of the toilet bowl. In other words, it needed a jolly good clean).

Although there were a few minor quibbles, we were very happy with the hotel itself and the village of Drymen was beautiful and full of friendly residents.

What a fab night on Friday 1st March 2013. We were a group of 22 girls on a hen night. Booked into the hotel no problems, most of us were on the same corridor in the hotel which was perfect.
The murder mystery event was hilarious, the actors were very talented especially Francis
(Olly Murs) with his lisp ....
Our meal was delicious, could not fault it one bit, great choice and cooked to perfection. Well worth the money, can't wait to go back.
The wee village of Drymen is lovely, nice after breakfast to have a stroll into the shops to buy a few souvenir's.

We have just returned from four days at this hotel. The food was brilliant and I like to think it was because we met the Chef when we were checking in! Other guests all agreed that the food was good value, interesting and very very tasty. The hotel was exceptionally warm and cosy, especially with the log fires. At times room was too warm and double glazing would surely reduce the heating requirements even during the icy nights. The well trained staff were always extremely helpful and friendly. We will certainly return.

The winnoch hotel is a brilliant place. The pub is so cosy and food is delicious! the murder mystery is a must. The murder mystery is hilarious and Jason and his team are just brilliant! they make you feel so welcome, ,its a great laugh and it's something different to try.
The murder mystery is more funny than serious but overall a lovely place and staff are polite and friendly. Our room we got an upgrade and it was clean and spacious. The winnoch I would recommend to friends. Brilliant place!

Lovely hotel and staff very very nice especially the male receptionists and the brekkie staff. My mother commented though that the female receptionist was very rude. Perfect hotel if ur walking and want somewhere quiet to chill.
