Lovely hotel, had a great time! Nice buffet! Although we didn't stay in it we saw the honeymoon suite and it was lovely, dark and moody (clearly interior designed) with lounge area, balcony, and massive tub (more like a swimming pool). Husband said it was the ideal place to take a mistress lol ;)

I choose to come to The Lochside Hotel on a regular basis - from Dumfries. Friends & family all love the setting & we are generally not disappointed. On a couple of occasions the service has been very slow, but it is usually very good. The quality of the food is consistently good & always hot. I was there today, with family & we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Service was excellent from very nice waitresses who recognised that we come often. However, both last week & today, we noted there is a new waiter ( he might be senior ) who is not of the calibre of other staff - quite off putting with a hostile manner. Such a pity to have one person who displays a negative attitude. It won't put me off being a regular customer, but I do hope he recognises his short comings & strives to improve his attitude while working in this wonderful setting.

The owner of a local B and B booked this venue for us, said we would not be disappointed, it was just as described, and made so much the better by a gorgeous summers evening.
There were many choices on the menu, the quality of the food was of a high standard, staff friendly and although busy paid attention to detail throughout the service.
We would have rated this five star, but for the very noisy ice grinding machine, behind the bar and we were sitting about 3m/4m from it and this happened regularly throughout our meal, If you you were part of a group you may not notice, but as a couple something you can do without

This is normally one of my favourite places to eat out, but on this occasion was extremely disappointed. Tables arround us coming in being served and leaving and we hadn't even had our first course. Asked for a jug of water for the table, still waiting for that. Think the hotel had taken too much, for the staff available. We sat down at 1-15 and left after 4pm, think it must have been close to two hours from sitting down to getting main course. They asked us if we would like deserts to which we replied, yes after twenty minutes we had to chase the menu's up!
