First up I should say this review is heavily influenced by the fact that from Good Friday through to Easter Monday the weather at Kinlochard was spectacular. We were sunbathing every day. The hotel enjoys a spectacular location overlooking Loch Ard with the snow covered Ben Lomond to the west. The hotel facilities were most satisfactory. Our room - I had pushed out the boat and opted for a suite - was well appointed, had a spectacular view and was very comfortable. Breakfast was in the main restaurant and was most enjoyable. On night one we dined in Rafters the on site leisure area and diner/bar and the service was good, the food most acceptable and not too pricey. Night two we dined in nearby Aberfoyle at a local pub. Again well priced. The final night we dined in the hotel restaurant. The food was fine, the ambience pleasant but I couldn't help feeling at £35 per head without any drinks it was a bit steep. Overall we had such an enjoyable time that I can say in all confidence we will go back. We never got to take a kayak out on Loch Ard and there was other exploring we never got to do.
