Just returned from my son and daughter-in-laws amazing wedding at The DuckBay. We had the most amazing weekend celebrating with all the family and friends in an amazing setting. The staff could not have been more helpful and after a little mix up with our room Elaine from reception could not have been more helpful and apologetic arranging for an...

Weather poor so, getting a table was 'no problem '. Very professional establishment with well trained staff. Well balanced menu with something to suit most tastes.

The service is outstanding but have dinner here for the views and the who's who of who has eaten there (Michael Jackson,really?) the food is very good but it's not fine dining. Irn Bru in glass bottles is a brilliant (in the Scottish sense of the word) ides and must be ordered.

Set on the banks of Loch Lomond there is no denying that the surroundings are stunning. However, we were disappointed with the hotel considering the rates charged. The food was very average and I've seen better rooms in a Travelodge!

Not a great service. Was over charged on bill twice. Waiter came over numerous times asking do we need drinks when he could see our drinks were still full. it was quite annoying as we were eating our meal which was nothing special.

My wife and I popped in for a drink prior to going to Cameron house. The place has been "done up" recently the view out Ben lommond are great. The place looked busy and the food too although we only had a drink. Would definitely pop in again for food this time
