Ate here for dinner twice whilst staying at the hotel, food was very good and served by efficient staff, I ate in the bar area which is a nice comfortable place with a good atmosphere. Recommended!

First off, the food was delicious and I cannot complain. Unfortunately though the whole experience was overshadowed by ridiculously poor service. My family was there for a birthday party, the restaurant wasn't busy and we had chosen the Laird as a good local choice. The Chip: No I am not referring to the food. The waitress who served us was...

We had 2 nights here and it is a beautiful Old English pub style hotel. Staff were very helpful and happy to fill your every need. Lovely views from the restaurant over the water. Easy driving to many interesting places including Highland titles nature reserve at Glencoe.

Had good reviews so came with family for dinner. Dinner was nice sat in conservatory. But the staff very unfriendly and basically took your plate away if you were finished or not like they just wanted you out the door quick as. Not as if it was busy there where a few empty tables. Food nice. Staff shocking!
