My husband booked this hotel for our anniversary with itison. We were fortunate enough to be given an executive double room with a veranda (the veranda room). It was lovely and all furniture had a historic feel. There were some parts that seemed quite worn but we didn’t mind this as it was lovely overall! Massive four poster bed and a jacuzzi bath. The staff were lovely from the get go. My husband had requested a bottle of prosecco in the room which was there on arrival. We went for a walk around Taymouth castle when we arrived which is right next door and a lovely walk then had drinks and dinner at the hotel. There was one small mistake with dinner and the staff were very apologetic. We found everyone very helpful and such a lovely ambience. Great little stay away. We’d definately be back and considering using this hotel for future anniversaries!!

This was disappointing. The hotel needs investment and the bar, restaurant and our room was very drafty. The drinks in the rather drab bar were extortionate! Our evening meal was average at best- cold veg and the sticky toffee pudding was no better than a supermarket version. Breakfast service was slow and the breakfast that was supposedly cooked to order was cold and the poached eggs tasted of vinegar (I put some vinegar in the water but this was far too much and the eggs were ruined). We won’t stay again I’m afraid.

The hotel is in a beautiful location and is full of character. Dining room overlooking the river Tay with glass on 3 sides - beautiful.
The bars are cosy with open fires.
Lovely staff.
The rooms are dated but very comfortable. Big bath, fluffy towels, warm, good bed and lovely bed linen.
Other places to eat within walking distance.
Can recommend a visit to The crannog and a walk in the grounds of Taymouth Castle.
We were part of a large group of c100 guests staying at the hotel and lodges.
Dinner was a disaster as there were too few staff and a lack of organisation. Chicken was over cooked and vegetables were undercooked.
My husband is vegetarian and his only choice was a starter of melon and fruit and a single red pepper stuffed with rice and a bit of broccoli on the side. Does the chef not understand that vegetarians need a tasty balanced meal too????
Breakfast next morning was no better with most of us waiting 30-45 minutes to get tea and toast. Food in hot servers was not hot enough.
We had booked a function room both nights and it wasn’t set up for us on the second night; the bar wasn’t stocked and there were not enough tables and chairs for all.
The Manager was useless!

I booked this hotel for our one night stay expecting a bad maintained dated old uncomfortable place (according to previous reviews), but booked in anyway because of its location. In fact our room was warm, clean and nice. Dinner at the Restaurant was not a Michelin start food, but was tasty and the waiter at the bar who served us was friendly, professional and attentive. Location is just to die for: right on the Loch, with an exceptional view! Breakfast was nothing special, I would say average, but nothing wrong with it. Compare to other reviews we may just have been lucky! I would go back!
