We had fond memories of this hotel having visited under the previous ownership
The welcome we remembered was missing, we had the same room but by this time was. Looking very tired, the view was the same we had a ground floor veranda saving grace was the view.
There was a general lack of staff one girl was the mainstay and worked hard,
Breakfast was ok ; had one evening meal, didn’t bother again,
I will not be returning

Spent four nights at Lake of Mentieth Hotel. We had a fantastic time. It was a break that was on a promotional of which we sat through a no pressure presentation. What made our stay was the staff, Nothing was a problem for them. The room we had was clean and very comefortable with an en-suite bath and shower. The food was excellent. Over-all we signed up for the package as we liked what we sat through. Personally, I had already done my homework prior to signing up, we had to experience our stay before making mind up.

A few years since our last visit and interesting to see if change of ownership had altered the hotel. Not disappointed.
Lovely lunch in pleasant surroundings
Good choice on menu ,food was served well presented and tasty.
Waiting staff very attentive.
Could have sat all afternoon in the sunny conservatory overlooking the Lake

What a picturesque Lake this is with a hotel on its shore and a large and popular fishery with nearly 40 boats . A ferry that takes you to the ruined Abbey on the island .This is a must on your tourist trail . The east shore is a well known picnic spot . There is a huge variety of wildlife and at this time of the year it is normal to see an osprey diving for fish to carry off. The fishing is excellent with a good head of fish in the water.

My husband and I had a meal at this lovely Hotel two years ago and decided that we would come back again with our friend who lives locally. We actually had dinner on the 2nd January, and as before the food was really lovely and fresh. The staff are so friendly and made us so welcome. In fact we love the place so much that we have booked to stay at the end of the year for Hogmanay. Thank you Andy for all the information you gave us on the Hotel, and we look forward to returning.

Took a trip to the island on the small boat. Informative trip with lovely views. Can stay as long on the island as you want but would recommend getting there early as we virtually had the place to ourselves up to 11am. Relaxing and good value. The hotel nearby overlooks the loch and serves good food

There are several car parks as you drive down from Port of Menteith but we thought the best one was a mile or so from town and situated in a woodland. Very peaceful there with little traffic and great views

Has the benefit of a nice restaurant and hotel on hand. You can take a short boat trip to the Abby on the island with Mary Queen of Scott’s connections.

Visited today on a recommendation and glad that I did. The setting is beautiful and the autumn colours were a welcome addition. Signalled for the ferry using their simple board system and had that and the island to myself for a bit. The staff members I met were really friendly and enthusiastic and gave me lots of tips about things to look out for to photograph. I did the circular walk around the island and then walked around the priory. Fascinating site and only added to by the location. Dogs are allowed over, but must stay on leads. Look forward to going back for the bluebells and ospreys next year. Think summer would be better for younger children in particular so you can picnic etc. There is a small shop and a toilet block further along, otherwise it is all outdoors so keep that in mind.

Beautiful, peaceful, loved it! Can drive round the National Park one way and stop at various places en route and walk and enjoy a picnic. The peace is heavenly!
