“Lovely hotel with attentive staff & excellent food - will be back next year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

Really enjoyed the location (weather could have been kinder) and hotel was great. A friendly welcome on arrival, rooms were quiet, food was nice and the staff were good with my fussy children. Will be back in the next year or two.

We stayed at the Knockendarroch in August in a gorgeous room with an amazing view. The beds are very comfortable!
The food is amazing, the chef Angus creates awesome dishes. The wine/whisky list was fantastic and the staff were very friendly. Great place to stay to explore the area - its an hour and a half to anywhere.

We went on a trout fishing trip on a Saturday on a loch where there was no-one else for miles except us and our guide, it was absolutely amazing - beginner fly fishing and we both caught brown trout.

We had visited a couple of years ago, and were determined to return this year. Having made the booking at late notice we were not disappointed. Dinner was fantastic, washed down wit Edradour Whisky, made locally, and the breakfast was truly splendid.
Our room was even better than last time we stayed, with a great en-suite and lovely view.
Would thoroughly recommend a stay!

Dear 'Dickydonut', Thank you for returning to the Knockendarroch and for taking the time to write a review - it is nice to hear that we lived up to your previous visit. Yes, Edradour is a popular whisky choice given it is so close. It would be lovely to see you again sometime.
Best wishes from all the Team.

We had a very warm welcome and ongoing attentive care during our stay here. Staff were friendly but professional and seemed to take a real pride in their work. They were knowledgeable about food, wine, local attraction etc. Breakfast and dinner were excellent.
We booked a room with a balcony so we had great views. Would certainly stay there again

A really good find. We had a lovely room very comfy and clean. The chefs produce the most delicious food.
The staff were all very courteous and helpful. We really do not have anything other than very positive memories of a too short, but extremely pleasant stay in a very warm and friendly hotel. Thank you to all.

My husband and I stayed here for two days while exploring Central Scotland. The public spaces in the hotel are really lovely and the staff was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We had dinner at the restaurant one night and could have eaten there both nights, it was really top-notch--we enjoyed it more than one of the "Top Picks" mentioned by one of our guides.

My only criticism of the hotel, and the reason I am not giving it five stars is our room. It was nicely decorated, enough space, and clean, but in a horrible location. We were in room number one and between the dining room and the kitchen and behind the reception. As a result, we could hear anyone coming or going and when the breakfast started in the morning, we were up as well. It didn't end up being too big of a problem for us as a lot of the guests were older so it was quiet in the evening, but with a different crowd there it could have made our stay intolerable. And since we were on the ground floor we had no view whatsoever.

As long as you avoid room #1, you can have a lovely stay there. I'll stay again if I'm back in the area.

Room Tip: Avoid Room #1.

Dear 'expatgrl', I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us and rated our food so highly. We have many different types of rooms and our ground floor room is actually our most requested, but I am sorry that it was not suitable for you. I am very glad that you would like to return as we would love to see you again. Best wishes. Liz and all the Team at Knockendarroch.
