Excellent food - far better than normal Hotel food - well trained staff also
Lovey decorated restaurant, very attentive staff and the food was amazing
Food on both nights excellent staff very attentive & friendly our server on Tuesday was Lorna & on Wednesday was Emma both very chatty & welcoming. Room clean & everything we needed we will return
My wife and I returned to celebrate our first wedding anniversary after getting married at the hydro last year and recieved a very warm welcome a complimentary drink and the food was perfect. Definitely recommend the cured salmon as a stand out dish! The meal was that good, we will not be waiting another year to go back! Thank you for a memorable night.
The reason I am only giving one star for value for money is the sirloin steak that my Father ordered was so tough it was inedible. We have stayed several times before & never had an issue with the food so we recommended the steak to my Father who had never been before. He does not like to complain & he was almost halfway through before I noticed he was struggling to even cut it & it was only after I asked him if it was ok that he admitted he couldn't eat it. As this was a special treat for his 90th birthday we were very disappointed by this & even although we got the supplement taken off the bill it still spoiled what was a very special occasion.
Every thing was excellent food and staff looking forward to my next stay
Good choice of menu, food was excellent, staff all very friendly
Staff are very hard working. More smiles needed and a little recognition wouldn't go a miss .
Lovely restaurant with great food and service.
Friendly helpful staff and lovely food made this a great experience
My family and I were staying in the Hotel on Saturday 29th September and, as advised at time of booking, I had pre -booked dinner at 8:30 pm for the fours of us. We were shown to a table not in the restaurant but in a booth in the breakfast area. I asked why we had to go there and was told that it was because there were a lot of tables of 6 due to come in. I explained that this would not be suitable and we were moved to a second table which was half in and half out of the breakfast area which still felt awkward so we asked again if anything could be done to have us eat in the main restaurant. A table of 4 had just been vacated and it was then cleared promptly for us and we felt much more comfortable. The Kailyard is a very nice restaurant with great ambience and was one of the reasons we booked to stay in the hotel. To have missed out on it , especially having booked my table a week before , would have spoiled what was in the end a lovely evening with good food and table service.
First night of a two night stay was disappointing. Food was excellent, but the staff let the place down as they did not appear to be interested and it took 45 mins for our dessert to arrive. Staff spent most of that time standing behind the bar talking to each other. Second night and it was much better. Different staff were on and the service was excellent. They apologised for the night before, even though it wasn't their fault, and we had a much better time.
We really enjoyed our meal and love the ambiance of the restaurant, the only negative was my white wine was not served chilled and when I asked the waiter if I could have a cold white wine his response was to provide me with ice to cool my wine down. We also feel the waiting staff could do with some extra training as at times we felt rushed. The staff were all lovely but lacked basic training for a restaurant of this calibur.
Lovely restaurant, attentive staff. Part of main course not quite to my taste but the rest was lovely.
Friendly staff, amazing food, fantastic night
Expected a nice dining experience but got average pub grub

Great value via Itison
Excellent meals, good environment & service.
We've eaten here a few times and this was by far the loveliest meal.
We had a party of four , 3 out of 4 felt the chips with meal were over done. We were not offered any veg with our mains or directed to veg on the menu when ordering. The atmosphere was good and staff attentive we are returning in November where we will order veg separately.
Emma our waitress for the evening was great very courteous and pleasant. The parsnip and honey soup was excellent and the cheeseburger very filling. The pork was good as well. Never had a drink or dessert so can’t comment. A pleasant evening in the Kailyard was had by both of us.
