“Really lovely family Easter lunch!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

We dined here today, with elderly parents, in some glorious sunshine. The setting is simply stunning at the side of the Lake of Mentieth and the ancient priory. Several diners asked to sit outside, and the courteous staff obliged willingly. As many other reviews have mentioned..the mussels are amazing, the traditional haddock & chips very scrumptious & there were several 'specials' available too, including lamb & seabass. We were very spoiled by the staff, nothing too much trouble despite the holiday weekend peak trade.. Would highly recommend this lovely restaurant & would plan to stay over in the hotel next time!

Many thanks for your kind words and generous comments. Even if the sun does not shine our views are world beating. Delighted you enjoyed your lunch, we are blessed with great produce to work with and some talented folks in the kitchen to cook it sympathetically. Our specials are always last minute and the best of what Dan can find from suppliers that day. We look forward to your return and when you do try our Lesiure Break, great value that includes your dinner.

This was our first visit for the whole weekend, we ha da family gathering,

From the moment we arrived Joan and the team looked after us, it felt as if a family were running the hotel, so friendly and personal. nothign was too m uch trouble.

Chris, Amy, Lilly, Bunty, staff members made sure my glass was never empty, I must had had at least 20 Bloody Marys, which were out of this world.

We ate in the bar for lunch, fantastic, and in the eveing in the restaurant the mussels were to die for. ( a fanhtcasic wine list as well)

We chose a Classic room, which was cozy, clean fresh, and so quiet, lovely soft beds,

Wil be back

Thank you all for a fantastic weekend

Dear Carl
Thank you so much for your kind words and we were delighted to look after your party, all great fun. We do have a fabulous team here, many long serving and they certainly know how to make a mean Bloody Mary, as you know. Next time try the Cosmos or one of Amy's specials. Thank you for choosing "The Lake" and we look forward to seeing you again.

This hotel is so much MORE than professional. Friendly, welcoming staff in every way. The beautiful rooms and perfect views is shown in all pictures. The warm friendliness of the staff is the bonus which makes the place perfect. The good towels, bathrobes and high quality toiletries are all appreciated, but the service of the staff is what makes it a gem.
The hotel was completely full this time we were here. Still breakfast and dinner was served quickly and with a smile.
We knew we would arrive far too late for dinner, and asked for some sandwiches upon arrival - and a pile of very good sandwiches was waiting for us. Highly appreciated after looong working day, flight etc.
We just love this place - and will of course be back!!

After a gruelling few weeks in work, this was such a find. The weather may not have been wonderful, nevertheless the views in the rain were splendid. The ambience was tranquil even the very youngest of guests did not make much noise or if they did their considerate parents took them to less public areas. The staff could not have been more helpful and presented very well - all very genuine in their comments. The room, spotless. The food excellent. The fire in the bar was lovely although it became very hot in the bar on the evening we chose to eat there. The restaurant, menu as for the bar, was delightful with great views over the lake. This is definitely the place to come for peace, tranquillity and relaxation. (Would agree with another reviewer's comment about the residents' lounge which seemed to lack something!). My friend and I will be back. Thank you all

This was the first time we had been here, and we had a lovely stay. The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean, and the hospitality tray was well stocked! We enjoyed our complimentary tea and scones both afternoons and the dinner we had was excellent. The hotel has a 'cosy' feel - it was nice to be able to sit by the fire in the bar and read the newspaper! We will definitely come back.

We stayed here for one night prior to a day when our husbands had hoped to attend the Nick Nairn Cookery School (sadly it was cancelled due to a power cut). We opted for the ground floor rooms overlooking the lake, a beautiful view not even marred by the torrential rain and gale force wind! The beds were large and comfortable and the rooms clean. Because of the horrendous weather my friend and I had intended to sit in the residents lounge during the afternoon, where they have a range of videos to watch, however we both thought the room dark and quite depressing and were pleased not to have to spend any time there.
We enjoyed the tea and scones self service afternoon tea, which was included in our package. Dinner was a very pleasant affair in a busy restaurant, we all had the slow cooked lamb which was delicious. Sadly we were not too impressed with the desserts, a rather bland lemon tart, a strange tasting apple pie and a very sickly sticky toffee pudding. I think perhaps we would have the cheese instead next time as we will return. The staff are very pleasant and helpful.

Thank you for choosing to stay at our Hotel and pleased that overall you enjoyed your experience. We do indeed have two lounges, one for all customers overlooking the Lake and the other tucked away privately for residents only. We do enjoy a great location and have wonderfull staff. We look forward to your return and hope you find the desserts more to your taste then.

The location is stunning, the food and wine is extremely good quality and well priced. The service was also of the highest standard with the staff all perfectly adequately attentive but not overly so. The word cosy springs to mind, a small hotel that is well aged but very well kept on the shores of the Lake of Menteith. The hotel is ideal for a quiet break for a couple like us and we intend to return after seeing the wine evenings and other deals that the hotel offers. The whisky vault at the hotel is impressive and the huge open fire in the bar area is wonderful.
An excellent little bit of added care was the tea/coffee and scones supplied each afternoon for the residents of the hotel while we were there - a lovely touch in keeping with the general feeling and attitude of the hotel.
One point might be the lack of a bit of background music in the eating areas to create a little ambience. Some places do not do this deliberately and, purely personally, I feel they lack for it.
A very minor point on an otherwise great hotel experience within an hour of Glasgow.

Room Tip: Upgrade from the basic room option- we took the heritage rather than teh classic option.
