My wife and I stayed last night and had dinner, bed and breakfast. The quality of the food was simply outstanding and by far the best hotel food we've ever experienced locally and internationally. We'll definitely be back!

Words don't describe how good the food was. Great efforts go into the sourcing of the food. We ate here for two nights. The imagination and creative presentation allied to the the Chef's ability made it a memorable two evenings. I cannot understand previous negative comments. As mentioned by others this is fine dining on par and even more superior... More

We had dinner here with a loch view table. I can't fault the staff or the taste and presentation of the food...there was just not enough of it. Having to eat bread as the portion sizes are small is not acceptable. More of the same food would be lovely!

We had three evening meals during our stay and must say that the restaurant is excellent and while the choice may be limited I couldn't fault any of the meals we had. Just proves that (in my opinion) it's better to concentrate on fewer dishes and get them right rather than providing a large selection of mediocre ones. On two... More

Left a review on the main hotel page, sadly we will not be back to Knockderry after a disaster meal. Food was barely edible it was so tasteless and over done. Really sad as it used to be one of our favourite places to visit on our way to Oban. Please do not have high hopes if you are dining... More

Went here in response to their advert offering a fine dining menu. The welcome was poor as we were chided for being 15 mins late (their misunderstanding in fact). The menu looked fine but the dining was not. A very average meal which could not be described a fine dining. The service was very very slow. We had to leave... More

Fancy a proper lunch with white linen, beautiful wine glasses and a lovely view over Loch Long? For £41 we had a large glass of wine, parma/pecorino/pear starters, seared cod for main and a chocolate porn for pud finished off with coffees. Hotel is on beautiful Kikcreggan/Cove peninsula @ 1 hr from Stirling and Glasgow. Murdo and his team deserve... More

We had an excellent lunch here. We are fairly local and had decided to bring our guests here. The menu has 3 choices per course, and we felt it was good value for money. The trout starter was exceptionally well executed, and the chicken main was perfectly cooked. Staff members were very friendly and patient - we had our 3mo... More
