This was our first hotel in Scotland, and my husband and I absolutely loved it! The atmosphere is just splendid. Very cozy and just wants you make to enjoy a long dinner and relax. We stayed here with our two children. The room was plenty large with a good sized bathroom. We had a riverview room, which was very nice and I would recommend. One other reviewer mentioned the soft beds, and that would be my only complaint.

The restaurant staff was very friendly, breakfast buffet had a nice selection. The fireplaces in the restaurant are huge and they actually burn coal! There are buckets of coal on the hearths. We also loved walking along the river and the trails that connect off from there. We fed the ducks and enjoyed talking to other folks walking along the river. We would definitely return here.

Room Tip: Recommend a river view room

I work for vintage and have found every innkeepers lodge a joy to stay in but this spot was truly acceptional. All the staff were soooooo friendly the food and drink was lovely. Our family room overlooked the loch and was well equipt. The only thing I can pick out was the shower curtain that stuck to you so sorry for the wet towels! We were very central and the kids saw so many nice place. Me and my husband are looking forward too returning for as romantic mid week break. Well done to Paul Young and your full team for all your hard work.

Room Tip: Room 5 was lovely.

Stayed for 2 nights although the rooms were clean the bed was far too soft ,the mattress needs replacing. It was quite noisy the first night and there is a light in the window recess which you cannot turn off. We are used to it being quite dark at home so it was particularly annoying the fact that there was no way to switch it off. The continental breakfast was really good everything there and the waitress was extremely helpful. As we stayed Easter Monday night we booked a table for 6 o'clock which was in hindsight a good idea as they stopped taking orders at 7.30 . This isn't normal but they had been so busy they had run out of several items and run out of Tenants Lager!!!They were very apologetic and I cannot fault the staff,they are very friendly and helpful. Also you cannot charge your meals to the room as they are separate for some reason.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room if available looks on to the River Leven and up the Loch

We found the Balloch House Inn 2 years ago and it was a good dinner stop on our way home from Glasgow. However recently the standards have dropped and last night was maybe our last time.
We ordered a steak & kidney pudding & a special of James Martin spiced lamb pie. The lamb pie was just half full of mushed meat and we sent it back and ordered another steak & kidney pie. This came without vegetables which we had to ask for. The original sweet potatoe chips were thrown onto the new plate with the pie which was also served without gravy. A very mediocre meal. The kitchen staff don't really care and the waiter was not all that bothered either. With flippant comments like - oh a steak & kidney pudding without kidney huh! When we got the bill they still tried to charge us for the Lamb pie that we din't have! The management here have to realise that good quality food & service is their business after all! Mitchell's & Butlers share holders take note.
