Excellent and well appointed hotel. If I had a complaint it was only that the food portions were TOO large! However, the food was excellent.

The only reason I have marked down slightly on value for money was due to the time restriction on the voucher we had to use, we could only book when the spa was closed for refurbishment therefore we couldn't make full use of the hotel. However we were given a complimentary room upgrade upon arrival which I feel was an effort to make up for this. Food was fantastic!

Everything perfect. Only complaint would be the mattress was very hard and floor in bathroom was needing update. Lovely setting for an hotel and staff very helpful and friendly. Would definitely book again!

Had the chance to have dinner, lunch and breakfast here. Could not have faulted the product for both dinner and lunch, however with each meal I specified gluten free - the breakfast dish caused me to encounter a flare up due to cross contamination ultimately causing us to lose our time slot for the spa access and currently on day 2 of excruciating pain. Service was well below par, within the hospitality sector myself I understand it can be tricky to always please everyone. However, servers standing laughing and joking amongst each other when you are waiting to be seated, continually having to ask for the same item repeatedly and the lack of interaction from the servers (even at non-peak times) for e.g. we sat with empty plates with no communication from anyone for over 15 minutes. Apart from the CC mishap, cannot fault the food. A good Restaurant Manager would be able to iron out service issues.

My Favourite Spot. Food is great and the views are stunning. Service can be slow but it is always very busy so this is understandable.

Thank you for inviting me for a complimentary afternoon tea to help make up for last time. The afternoon tea selection was great and it all tasted amazing. Free refills for our tea was fab also. Service was good too. Thank you and can't wait to visit again!

Superb place to stay or just to dine. The quality of the food and the service is superb. All the staff as so friendly and helpful. Although the Lochside is a little of the beaten track it is well worth a visit.
