“Will be back”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

Went on a recommendation from a friend - glad we took it. Great setting, beautiful building, immaculately clean. Our room was peaceful and tastefully decorated. Every member of staff was friendly but the reception staff were outstanding. The food was gorgeous, reasonably priced and our night was made when our dessert plates were inscribed with chocolate to wish us a happy anniversary - what a lovely touch. Very relaxing and we'll back as soon as we can.

What a fantastic welcome and informative and friendly staff ( though no sight of any owners ).

Breakfast fantastic. Dinner good.

However, our room was directly above the kitchen and we were awoken at 6ish with deliveries.........not what you want on holiday. So, although the room was perfectly acceptable for a rate over over 130 pounds for b & b, the noise was not at all acceptable and I suggest the owners make a different use for this particular room or charge a much lower rate for that room,

Dear 'GeoDevon', Thank you for your review. I am a little puzzled as we never have deliveries that early. It is a pitty you didn't mention it on departure as we could have reassured you that it was not connected to the hotel. Infact, room 7 is a very popular room due to its separate sitting area and attracts a lot of repeat guests. I am glad you found the team friendly and welcoming, but as you were only with us for one night sadly I did not get to meet you personally.
Best wishes, Liz and the Team.

Stayed one night and also had dinner in hotel. This is a beautiful old house and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Room was spotless and all the staff were superb - very efficient and friendly. The food was very very good and a good wine list at sensible prices. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Make sure you get room facing fro front of hotel.

A little old fashioned, and the average age of the other people staying was quite high!, but this is a very well run and comfortable place to stay. The rooms are comfortable, there are several good sized and well-appointed public rooms and the restaurant is very adequate. Service was fine, there didn't seem to be many staff but those who appeared were very helpful and worked extremely hard.

We stayed at the Knockendarroch for a two night 'babymoon' in June and loved it. The service was probably the best we've experienced in a hotel in a long time - all the staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble ie offering to adapt any dish to ensure it was 'pregnancy friendly' and giving me extra pillows. We stayed in one of the balcony rooms which was immaculately clean and well equipped. Dinner and breakfast was delicious and the menu offered plenty of choice. The only thing that could be improved is the music in the dining room but that's just a minor detail. A beautifully restored old building that's been modernised very sympathetically and makes for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Would highly recommend.

Knockendarroch House Hotel is wonderful. Myself and my boyfriend stayed here a couple of weeks ago for three nights and would definitely go back. The staff were so nice and helpful and the food, breakfast and dinner, were great. We had a wonderful view from our room and the hotel also sells discounted tickets for Blair castle which we took advantage of.
The hotel is only a 2 minute walk from the town center and there is plenty to do in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 2 which was lovely, comfortable and elegant.
