We have stayed many times at Dunblane Hydro. The dining experience this time was very poor indeed. The quality & presentation of the food was not as professional as would be expected from this establushment

When we arrived we waited over 5 minutes to be seated. Various members of staff walked right past us and never said a word. They didn’t even have the decency to say someone would be with us shortly. I also noted on my booking that we were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. This was completely ignored. Even more disappointing was that other tables next to us were having their puddings delivered with ‘happy birthday’ written on them. We will not be returning anytime soon especially not to celebrate any special occasions.

Thoroughly enjoyed our Anniversary meal at The Kailyard.Steaks were cooked exactly as we asked and mango and cashew nut salad was a delicious starter. Lovely dining room and great service. Felt very much at home. Hope to be back in the future.

Had the vegetable curry for main. Had to send first one back as rice was solid and stuck together in one lump. When it came back, I had been given mostly raw onions, all still attached to the bulb, with a few bits of aubergine in sauce. I couldn't taste the coconut off the rice. I ate some rice and sauce and left. I was dining alone and didn't want to draw any more attention to myself. However, I was upset as this was a treat for my birthday and to have some alone time. Starter was sparse and slightly unimaginative, but fine. I had the tomato and feta salad Service was amazing, very attentive staff. Restaurant is lovely and a nice environment to eat. I was very disappointed unfortunately.

We enjoyed our stay and our meals at the Kailyard. However, would be good to have more choice of craft Scottish beers please. Also, can you fix your window blinds? Two uncomfortable evenings with sunlight in my eyes.

The restaurant is in dire need of a good clean and a freshen up. The fine wooden floor is a disgrace and in need of a good wash and scrub as well as a sanding and polish. The whole hotel is 'tired' and needs investment and upgrading. Mr Nairn is surely aware of these matters?

The décor of the restaurant is in dire need of updating and frankly a good clean! The fine wooden floor is an utter disgrace and needs a wash and a scrub at least if not a major sanding and polish. With respect to him Mr Nairn should be aware of this. In saying that the whole hotel is clearly 'tired' and in need of investment of time and money I suggest. It is getting very tatty.

Been before many years ago and have to say this resturant now is extremely poor in terms of flavour of food, very poor portion sizes and extremely poor value for money, I raved about this resturant before and decided to take my husband, however I was embarrassed to recommend this establishment as the food was mediocre to say the least.
