The Lake of Menteith Hotel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2014

My wife and I booked one night at the lake hotel but ended staying four nights ,what a lovely place to stay so relaxed and the location was unbelievable. Our plan was to stay one night then move north and do the same the next day,instead we dumped the luggage and just had different ride outs each day.the staff were so friendly and helpful it was a pleasure to park up the bike and hit the bar and enjoy the lake view.the meals in the restaurant matched the hotel they were exceptional a return visit is definite for next year.

Room Tip: Any room is good but the lake view rooms are even better

A wee hidden gem, fantastic views across the lake from the conservatory style restaurant where the food was excellent. Relatively isolated but a short drive from Callandar however the nearby ferry to the ruined abbey on a small but beautiful island was most worthwhile. A converted manse for the lovely church next door, the hotel is small but charming.

Room Tip: Pay the small premium for a lake view room

Dear Callum
Wee gem indeed though we don't want it remain too unknown. Delighted you found your way here and that it was an experience you valued. The ferry trip to the Isle of Inchmahome is a great trip.

A wonderful restaurant with friendly knowledgable, efficient staff. Beautiful setting on the edge of the lake. Quite simply the best pork I have ever eaten. Fish was exquisite In the starters. Waiting staff could answer every question regarding the menu with confidence. Their recommendations were spot on and their manner set the perfect tone for our anniversary meal. Prices were great for the quality we received. They also allowed us to stay overnight in car park in our motorhome. We will be back:)

It's not a modern clean cut hotel, but that adds to the character. There is the odd rough edge but we didn't find it a problem. We had dinner and breakfast and both were excellent and dinner wasn't expensive.

The only slight issue is the sound proofing between the rooms (we were in Menteith) wasn't great and next door's TV was easy to hear.

We went for a sumptuous lunch in the bar when I was visiting my parents. The view across the lake was exceptional, service prompt and professional and food was sumptuous!. A real great wee hotel that all three of us enjoyed with a great selection of drinks at the bar to boot!

We expected a lot from this hotel. But it was overated, tired and in need of some maintenance. We had the 'best' lake view room - Menteith. Excellent views.
Lacked an acceptable lounge area - seemed just like a corridor with people and staff toing and froing. Not comforting.
Dining was good not exceptional. Staff very friendly.
But all in all a disappointment.

Thank you for staying at The Lake and we are sorry it did not meet your expectations and that you believed it was poorly maintained. We replaced all windows and doors on the lake side and repaired and repainted the entire front side too, two months ago. There are two lounges available one of which is private for residents only. New window coverings along the lakeside and in the bar and restaurant too, one month ago. I only make reference to this to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to improving the property for future guests. I regret that these improvements were not apparent to you. Thank you for your commments and I would be happy to personally great you on a return visit.
Regards
Ian

We stayed one night in this hotel which has an idyllic location by the shore of lake of Menteith. The tranquillity of this serene landscape is really fantastic. Our room, although not facing the lake (rooms with lake view were too pricey) was very pleasant, quiet and modern. The bed was great and the bathroom very spacious. Wifi was free but weak, reception told me that it's only available in the ground floor. Fortunately, our room on the first floor had a weak but stable signal. The breakfast room (same as the restaurant) had great view over the lake and it was a delight to have breakfast there. But at the day of our stay, the chef had an accident and we hadn't the chance to taste its famous hot choices, staying only with the cereals, fruit and some cheese and proschiutto ham (pity, hope he is OK). But, to my surprise, the hotel DIDN'T charge us the whole breakfast for the two of us. It was an act of respect for the customer.
It's a hotel that I would definitely return and surely recommended.
(I didn't put a 5/5 rating only because we hadn't the opportunity to taste the whole breakfast)

Dear Nicktrip
Thank you for being so understanding and supportive. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and disapointed we were unable to provide the great breakfast we are famous for. Rare though it is, we can suffer a crises and we really appreciate the understanding and support from everyone when it does. Again our thanks and we do hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back.
