The Falls of Dochart Inn
Ranked #12 of 14 Killin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

I had a meal with a few friends here recently and really enjoyed it. The food is of a high quality and is well presented. The atmosphere in the pub is authentic and the view of the falls and surrounding hills adds to the experience. You should definitely make this a stop if you are passing by or are in the area.

We spent one night here this week and had a fantastic time. We'd popped in last year and enjoyed a relaxing bar meal and a few local ales by the roaring fire, however this time we wanted to stay over. Room 6 overlooks the Falls of Dochart and is a great room: comfy 4-poster bed, roll-top bath, under-floor heating in the bathroom and spotless. It was lovely hearing the Falls in the distance when everything was quiet. We had dinner in the bar and again, the food was excellent with fresh ingredients and plentiful portions. Hurricane Jack on tap and the hours just fly by in front of the cosy fire. Breakfast was very tasty, with a number of options from healthy porridge to a full Scottish, and cereal and toast too. All staff were very friendly and helpful. I'll definitely return.

Room Tip: Room 6 overlooks the Falls and is just lovely.

We stayed at the Falls of Dochart Inn at the end of March. The location of the inn is superb, just across the road from the falls. We were in room 6, overlooking the falls, and it was warm and clean with a comfy 4 poster bed. The bathroom was also spotless with a roll top bath with shower attachment and cosy underfloor heating. Every member of staff we met, housekeeping, waiting and bar staff, were very friendly, courteous, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was plentiful and well cooked with prompt service. Evenings meals in the candlelit bar with roaring log fire ( some reviews state it is dark and gloomy, we found it atmospheric and in keeping with the age of the inn ) and the menu was varied with plenty of local produce, and very well cooked and presented. The Falls of Dochart is central to local shops, restaurants and attractions and a great base for the surrounding area with historical sites and good walking. We were delighted with our stay, and look forward to returning as soon as possible. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Recommend a room overlooking the magnificent falls, we left the window slightly open, lulled to slee...

We booked a meal at this hotel based on a recommendation and unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. The table was booked in advance which was just as well as the restaurant was full. Initially a very good sign. We were shown to the table right away another good sign. Then it went wrong. We waited for someone to come and take our drinks order while we browsed the menu. And waited. Eventually the waitress turned up and apologised for the slow service which was apparently due to one of the other waitresses having to go home. The glasses were provided but one had to go back as it had lipstick around the rim. We had a wait for the wine. We were 50mins in and the food arrived. The salmon was all right not great the venison was good but I think the haggis and onion accompaniment had spent too long under the grill, it was certainly crispy. That said the waitress that we had was most apologetic and between rushing around serving, clearing tables and cheerfully asking if she could help anyone, she took time to talk to the occupants of each table. In all, issues with staffing aside the food was at best mediocre, our waitress was run off her feet but was certainly trying her best to cater for everyone. Maybe a return visit would be required to find out if this was just a one off

Very promising on approach, lovely view, good car parking. It ended there! Went in for Saturday lunch. Grubby little place, grease even on the menu. Chose steak pie assuming that the price would guarantee quality. Meat was tough, maybe fit for the dog but maybe not. Pointed this out to the waitress when I handed her back my half finished pie, but apart from a casual "sorry" and "was it only the little bit on the plate that was like that?", no amends were made and nothing was deducted off the bill. I felt robbed of a pleasant lunch in otherwise lovely surroundings.

We stayed for two weekend nights at the Byre cottage and although small, I wouldn't fully rely on the bad reviews it has received from previous travellers. When we arrived there we were greeted by the friendly owner who led us to the cottage. Albeit small, the cottage itself is clean, well equipped and warm. The bedroom is tiny but does have plenty of storage space with a comfy bed and easy to access en suite toilet and shower room. As we were there for a hiking and exploring trip we didn't mind the small bedroom at all. The lounge/kitchen is well kept and has all the necessary equipment for self-catering should you need it. There is breakfast included with the booking and it was very well cooked- try the poached egg and haddock. It was delicious. The bar/restaurant was cosy and warm and served by friendly and helpful staff. Dinner can be eaten there too and the sirloin steak and cheesecake were fantastic. Overall, can't fault the place and if you happen to take the room booking instead you will have the pleasure of having the view of the rapids! Highly recommended!

We stopped here for lunch on a day out driving around the Trossachs on a cold and sunny day in February. The inn is right beside the Falls of Dochart and we had a seat by the window so the view was a fine backdrop to our lunch. We had haggis, neeps and tat ties plus two non-alcoholic drinks. The bill for two came to £25, not particularly cheap, but the quality of the food was excellent, and the meal well presented. The bar was a pleasant place to spend an hour, with an open fire and the obligatory stag's head on the wall. We'd go back.
