“There's been a muuuurder!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

Three unsuspecting females eventually made it to Drymen after satnav took us on what we thought a likely moors murder setting (added to the excitement it has to be said). After falling over the step into the hotel and making a grand entrance, we were warmly welcomed by pleasant reception staff. There was a lively buzz about the hotel and after a spritzer we ventured to our room, which was comfortable and spacious - only negative point was the shower which was a trickle.
The murder mystery evening was hosted by a cast of 4 actors who mingled and brought humour to the night. The evening was most enjoyable, helped by the fact that there were a number of friendly guests willing to join in the fun and who clearly were there to enjoy the night. The food was good, the wine was flowing and despite not guessing whodunnit we had a ball. Thanks to all!!! (Edna missed the finale as she had to be put to bed at breakfast - 75yr olds can't eat and drink the same as the young ones I suspected she might have dunnit!)

I spent the Weekend atnthe Winnock hotel from the 13th-15th of January for the murder mystery night. Staff at hotel friendly and approachable, nothing was too much for them, rooms where nice, clean and spacious. Food was excellent also. The murder mystery was great fun, the actors very good, funny and played there roles very well. The other residents where also friendly especially the group from Liverpool, how funny they where. I would recommend the Winnock hotel plus the murder mystery to anyone, it's a must do and see.

My husband and myself thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the murder mystery night on the 14th january. The food was excellent. The actors were good and my fellow guests were good company too.I've never laughed so much due to the" patter".It was a good way to banish the january blues.

We went in to The Winnock for something to eat whilst on company business in the area, I couldnt fault anything at all, surroundings - excellent, food - excellent & service - excellent. I had the oak smoked salmon - nom nom, Sirloin steak - cooked perfectly & the banana boat i think it was... nom nom.. will definately be back for a meal with friends rather than with work.. thoroughly recommend The Winnock if your in the area.

I wish there were more than five stars available as a comment on the Winnock Hotel at Drymen. It ought to get a star for the comfort of the accommodation, a star for the bacon at breakfast, a star for the remainder of the breakfast, a star or three for the wonderful evening dinners and at least four stars for the attention and manners of the staff. That makes around nine stars. My wife and I and the rest of our party of 30 had a remarkable and enjoyable five days. I have enjoyed the hospitality of several UK hotels and the Winnock must come out as best.

Room Tip: We only experienced the one room which was clean and comfortable.
