My family and I visited the Duck Bay Marina for a birthday dinner. The food was very nice and the staff were attentive. When we arrived the retaurant was really busy, we were welcomed and seated within a few minutes. We will be visiting again for the lovely food and beautiful views of loch lomond.

We went here in February for a birthday meal and the service was unacceptably bad; we waited long periods before a member of staff came near us, including over an hour from finishing our main course to the table being cleared and being offered the dessert menu. There is no need for this especially when 8! Members of staff were...

We have a boat moored nearby and often find ourselves of a summer's evening enjoying the good ambience and great service not to mention the consistently good food at Duck Bay Marina. It is always busy but the staff are very accommodating, pleasant and cheery. They can usually fit us in but I would recommend booking as they will give...

This hotel is right on the banks of Loch Lomand. We got the impression that the staff thought the location overrides good levels of customer service. Well, it may do for the first time visitor but could put off repeat customers. The staff did not appear to enjoy their job and little weloming smiles nd customer interaction apart from taking...

I have been going to the "Duck Bay Marina" on an off for 20 years. I miss the days when this was a smaller venue with a powerful view and a smaller menu. This place is geared for tourists and day trippers from Glasgow. The food was mediocre at best and service was like a programmed robot. I miss the...

My husband and I had a really lovely dinner. We both had fillet steak which was the nicest we had in the area. Cooked to perfection the side dishes were lovely and were included in the main price, which makes it very good value for money. I had the creme brûlée which was lovely, only criticism was that the shortbread...

After being recommended to eat here, we booked a table at the restaurant. The view is spectacular. But that is it. I ordered the fillet steak. £25 for the smallest piece of over cooked meat I have ever ordered. And my wife ordered a fillet of sole, which was destroyed by over cooking ...the only positive was the staff were...

We arrived at Duck Bay after a lovely tour of the Highlands. This hotel boasts its views on their website, and the rooms do offer nice views over the Loch. This, along with the marina bar, are the only positives about this hotel however. The room had multiple problems: - light bulb was out - door lock was faulty (loose)...
