For such a picturesque place, it was very disappointing to be met by such unfriendly staff. The first room we were given was unbelievably small, dark with cracked tiles in bathroom and definitely in need of a makeover. We were moved to a slightly larger room with a view to the car park!.
Do not have a Cosmopolitan cocktail - at £6 the bar staff have no idea how to make one. The Kir Royale at £10 each are more expensive than New York! The food is bland with unfriendly staff. The view is pretty but certainly not worth the cost of staying here.

Stumbled upon The Lake of Menteith Hotel by accident and found a hotel with a fantastic setting right next to the lake. We stayed for the weekend and really loved it. The food was great and the genuinely friendly staff just added to the stay. The manager told us the restaurant and bar had just been reburfished and they have done an excellent job in creating a relaxed North American feel. Our room was good sized but could do with being refurbished, however the manager told us this is planned. This is a great place to chill out. We will certainly be returning.

Shabby Rooms

Although the dining area and bar has been recently rennovated, the bedrooms left much to be desired, with rotting carpet by the bath and generally a good redecoration/refit required. When commented to the manager, we were lead to a recently reffited room, and told they were in the process of fitting another. Hardly what you want to see when you've obviously been given the rough end of the stick.

Also the website mentioned a 'Specialist Whisky Bar' this was still being fitted when we arrived. No one had told us this.

The food, although good, was sold to us as a Nick Nairn Signature Restaurant on the website. However we later found out that there was no real connection to Mr Nairn, and this had been removed from the website on the weekend of our stay. Presumably because they know they could be had up for Mis-representation.

The Staff were friendly and helpful, and the location is beautiful.

All in all though, very disappointing. Not what we had been lead to believe by the website, and left feeling slightly 'had'.

A perfect experience will be had here for those who want to "get away from it all" The accommodation, the wonderful food and the atmosphere is the best my partner and I have sampled in years. The staff incredibly attentive and the setting of the hotel is truly restful. Long may Ian Fleming and his family develop this wonderful place

This is a wonderful, peaceful, picturesque setting, much to be admired and taken in. My partner and I have been her a few times and been made to feel most welcome by the fantastic staff, the Deluxe rooms are superb, the cuisine a mouthwatering, cullinary delight, well done to the chef(whose Gordon Ramsay?), the place, serine tranquil settings, the owners, and staff are very, modest but in my opinion should be very proud, I have many friends and business companions I would be very proud to recommend this very fine typically Scottish setting/establishment

Top Local Tips for Stirling

The area The local area is beautiful but my top tip is do not stay at this hotel. Visit for a meal by all means but dont stay

In the summer The hotel is great to go to any time of year but in the summer, due to the lighter nights, you can have your dinner watching the lake.

Inchmahome Priory The Inchmahome Priory, which dates back to the 13th century and has a Mary Queen of Scots association, is located on a tiny island in the midle of the Lake of Menteith. It is a short ferry ride away from a dock just down the road from the Lake Hotel. It's a lovely and romantic trip!
