I was working for my company up in Scotland and I was placed in this hotel. Great food, great staff, great location. The view of The Ben and Loch Lomond is ' to die for.' You can get a steamer trip around the Loch which is approximately 21 miles long and has about the same amount of small islands scattered...

Booked here for our anniversary dinner, and I must say my husband and I were disappointed with our meal, not too good I'm afraid. The staff who serve are excellent and very pleasant, but I'm afraid the food did not hit the mark. I ordered lentil and ham broth and it was tasteless..and not very warm. The rib eye steak...

This is the first review I've ever been tempted to write. The Duck Bay Hotel, food and staff, have been the perfect combination of Cost effective, Superb quality and perfect attention to detail with nothing being too much trouble. The view from the conference room looks over Loch Lomond and up to Ben Lomond in the distance. The food was...

Visited the well known Duck bay with overseas friends,to experience Scotland at its finest on glorious warm October afternoon. Upon arrival we wanted to sit in the outdoor seating area to make the most of the fine weather. Was informed that we'd need to have paper cups & paper plates for health & safety !!!! Mmmm !!! have been eating...

Went for a meal at night so did not see any of the scenery. The food was good but nothing out of the ordinary. The waiter who took our drinks order did not know how much wine was in the individual bottle of Prosecco. He brought a bottle for us to look at then fetched my drink and just left...

Stopped off for lunch with friends whilst out for a drive. Food was lovely. Our table had magnificent views of the loch. The restaurant area was very clean. Was slightly disappointed with the service from staff didn't feel they were overly friendly or nice.

Stayed here one evening only and we weren't really impressed. The room was small and the bed uncomfortable. Quite an old fashioned hotel. The breakfast the following morning was served in a room overlooking the loch, the views were stunning. That's the only positive about this stay

I have been here a few times and really like the location and views, but unfortunately the customer service regarding food / drink continues to appear variable depending on how much they think you are going to spend. All smiles and fawning until you say something like "Two coffees please" and then the attitude changes. Standing at the bar geting...
