“Cosy friendly place”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

This is just what a good 3 star hotel should be.
All the staff were friendly and helpful. The owner has a lovely sense of humour.
Our room, no 5, was well furnished, comfy beds and a gorgeous view over the river thundering by below. The noise is constant so you quickly background it. Even the view from the large bathroom was spectacular. Lots of hot water and at high pressure.
The residents lounge was relaxed and welcoming with books and magazines.
The dinner menu was of a good pub food standard, plenty of it and well cooked, and at a reasonable price.
The breakfasts were particularly good.
There are a good number of interesting walks straight from the hotel.
We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Room 5 has great views as long as you like rushing water.

40 years after we first came to Scotland and stayed at the above hotel, we returned, but just for dinner. Due to my wife's food allergies we poped in the morning and left a note for the chef.
On arrival for dinner, the young lady was aware of our needs and the chef had made a most enjoyable meal.The atmosphere was good and the service from the senior girl very good, but as usual in the UK we don't train the waiting team to serve or clear properly. An atmospheric restaurant, only down side is that the restaurant is also part of the public bar, and the lounge is too small to cater for all the dinners before the meal. Minor details that did not ruin an enjoyable evening..

You receive a warm welcome here on your arrival! Dogs are also accepted, which was a great bonus for us! We went on a voucher deal, but this didn't make any difference. The room we had, was No 7, which was up a lot of stairs and located to the rear of the hotel. No view as such and the room perhaps a tad on the small side, when a dog is also with you. The bed was a little hard for me (I have some health problems, so a hard bed is an issue for me unfortunately!). Bathroom was perfect size, clean and well appointed. Wifi is only available in the lounge, but is free. There are 2 lounges, 1 which welcomes dogs. Both had roaring fires in, which was a plus on a damp March evening and very welcoming! One even has a good selection of board games as well as a TV and both offer the opportunity of having a drink. Unfortunately, we went for a walk in the early evening and came across a restaurant/pub that allowed dogs in, so we ate in there. We later heard that the meals in the hotel were exceptional. If the breakfast was anything to go by, I wish we'd eaten our evening meal there! Staff were welcoming and friendly. Hotel is slightly out of the town of Killin. Too far to walk on a wet, dark evening, but would be fine in summer! Plenty of free parking!

We haven't stayed in the B&B but went for dinner and loved this place! Excellent food, excellent service and atmosphere, highly recommended. The place exudes attention to detail, will definitely recommend to anyone, especially 'foodies'. It is also in the most beautiful setting.

My wife and I have just returned from a two day break at the bridge of lochay, what a great quality traditional Scottish Inn, highly deserving of an excellent review. Every single member of staff from reception to housekeeping were friendly and extremely helpful, we chose this hotel because they accept dogs (a real bonus for us as we have 2). The room was decorated to a good standard and was immaculately clean. We ate in the cosy bar both nights as the dogs were able to accompany us, the ambience was excellent wood burning stove and candles made it feel very homely .
from the bar you can access the decked riverside garden we were fortunate enough to enjoy some lovely spring sunshine so we ate lunch outside, the view of the river is stunning.
breakfast was without a doubt amazing, great selection of quality produce. The grilled breakfast was huge kept me going all day, I would highly recommend the smoked haddock and poached egg .
overall our visit was a relaxing and enjoyable experience for us all. We will definitely be returning( a little gem)

The first time we stayed here was the weekend the new proprietors took over the hotel some four years ago.

We are a group of three couples, and decided to have a one night stay on our way further north, and took advantage of a "special" offer which had been e-mailed to us. (it will be worth your while being added to their mailing list!).

They have made substantial changes to the place since we first visited, and the bedrooms are warm, very comfortable and well appointed.

The lounge area is warm and welcoming.

The food is first class and the menu choice has plenty variety.

The service is friendly and efficient.

It is an ideal location for exploring central Scotland and not too far off the beaten track.

We will certainly return

My walking group of 21 had our tea at the hotel after our walk and the food though basic was well cooked and presented. The hotel went out of the way to provide a nice private dining room with lovely table setting eventhough we were having two course set meal. Would definitely go back and a good venue for that last munro celebration.
