"Winnock Hotel is a Winner."

KevtheExplorer, North Wales, United Kingdom 28/05/2020

Have stayed here twice in the past 18 months, using a North Wales coach firm. Each holiday was a success, and the location is perfect for exploring the Trossachs. There's no swimming pool or leisure facilities, but the hotel is not there for that reason. It provides an excellent base for touring southern Scotland and I found the food, accommodation and most importantly the hospitality of the staff to be of a high standard, and a credit to Scotland. This year's visit to this welcoming hotel has been prevented so far this year due to the coronavirus emergency. I do hope the hotel survives the current difficulties and will continue to offer its good-value Scottish breaks. I can't wait to get back there.

What a lovely time with our great Scottish family. lovely old hotel with roaring wood fire. Lovely food and friendly staff. A big big thank you to Tracey for sorting us out at breakfast. We were running late and Tracey made us feel like royalty getting the staff to make us up a table in a private room. Thank you once again Tracey. Hope to see you soon. From the Billson FAMILY.

Very welcoming staff, nice hotel, clean, tidy and warm. Room 78 was excellent, It was overlooking the car park, but this was not a problem. Breakfast was good, and bar lunch prices where as expected. I would recommend a stay without any hesitation.

andrewjbartlett, Bristol, United Kingdom 13/02/2020

My journey north by foot on the West Highland Way started a little late, as the trains from Bristol delivered me to Milngavie at sundown. So after 5 hours night-time walking in the driving rain, the Winnock Hotel was a warm, dry and welcome rest stop. A little off the official trail but well kept and comfortable with a bar serving locally produced beers by an open fire. A comfortable night's sleep and the full Scottish breakfast was a great start to a bright new day on the trail. Recommend.

"Excellent Hotel for Burns Night"

Ian P, Westhoughton, United Kingdom 27/01/2020

A mature couple, mid 60's, we have just returned from a super weekend celebrating Burns Night at the Winnock Hotel, January 2020. We travelled with Tyrers Coach Tours, arriving Friday evening, staying for 3 nights, We were given room 39 which was on the front of the hotel overlooking the green. The room was very pleasant, clean and spacious. The bathroom had a bath with shower over, plenty of hot water and lovely big soft towels over an electric towel rail, perfect. We had plenty of tea and coffee in the room, hairdryer for my wife, loads of storage space, great. The food was excellent, especially the lamb on Burns Night and the beef pie on Sunday. All food was hot, served well and tasty. We had a free bar 19.30 -22.30 each night and made full use of it! The bar staff were fantastic, working like Trojans, we never had to wait for a drink, well done! All the staff were great, we were made to feel really welcome, thank you! This is a really good hotel, we loved our stay and would recommend to all.

Karen R, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 12/01/2020

Stayed on the 11th of jan with my mum for the murder mystery night, would highly recommend the murder mystery! The actors where 5/5 on the entertainment scale and involved the guests. The hotel was welcoming, friendly and full of charm. We had a family room which was very spacious and clean. The dinner and breakfast was to a great standard with the friendly staff being very attentive. Would highly recommend and would definitely go back.

"Very small single room"

Kathrynwhit06, Doncaster, United Kingdom 30/12/2019

Room 68 should only be available for staff or coach drivers, not paying guests unless a very significant discount given. Breakfast poor but main meal food quality good. Service at meals poor. Rooms clean. Room 1 very good standard room.

"Amazing hotel"

jeffsoo1, Lichfield, United Kingdom 30/12/2019

We stayed at the Winnock as part of the Parrys Christmas Scotland tour between Dec 23 and Dec 27, 2019. The hotel is very clean with large well-furnished bedrooms. The food was cruise ship standard with a good choice. All the staff were great and the bar prices very reasonable. You would have to go around with a magnifying glass to find fault with this hotel.

"Christmas Day lunch"

andreahA9575UM, united kingdom 26/12/2019

My family and I had a great meal on Christmas Day, food and service was excellent. From the minute we walked through the door to the minute we left, the service was both efficient and pleasant. Well done to Kirsten, the duty manage, Liam our waiter, and Chris and Russell at the bar. My mum was on pass from hospital for Christmas Day and was in a wheelchair, the staff were fantastic and made her Christmas. In fact they made all our Christmas. I just came off night shift and dreaded the thought of cooking whilst looking after my mum. But going to the Winnock where they cooked an exceptional meal and nothing was too much trouble. You are an amazing team, sorry if I didn't mention everyone but my list could go on, you work great together and both food and service fantastic. Well done guys, i can't thank you all enough.

User 23/11/2019

Stayed at the Winnock hotel for 4 nights . Property was warm and welcoming with real fires. Beautifully decorated for the festive period. Fair to say that some parts are in need of renovation however this didn't detract from our enjoyment. Our first room was a little small for our requirements so requested, and was granted a move. Can't thank Stuart and Lorna for their assistance in this matter. We were made to feel that our happiness, whilst we were staying, was of the upmost importance to them. We stayed on a half board basis. Wonderful porridge at breakfast and good quality fried breakfast. More than enough to set us up for the day. Loved the evening meals, good variety, quality and quantity. No negative comments! Staff were all so welcoming and helpful. Credit to the hotel. Would highly recommend this hotel to anybody wanting to stay in this locality.

Elizabeth F, Glasgow, United Kingdom 05/11/2019

We recommend this murder mystery night to friends who had not been before, to say it surpassed their expectations is an understatement. We laughed and danced all night, the continuation after breakfast, was done with all the same enthusiasm from the five actors. The hotel meal was enjoyed by all eight of us, and we left with such a good feel factor that we will certainly be back. Thanks to Winnock hotel and their friendly staff.

ShanksRFC, Douglas, United Kingdom 04/11/2019

Attended the murder mystery night and it was excellent, I wasn't sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed the evening, a great laugh too. The meal was good and there was music in the hotel bar afterwards. Overall a great night away.

"Would only return on a "room only" basis"

2
An_Old_Burian, Norwich, United Kingdom 27/10/2019

As you will have guessed the room was fine - but the restaurant service at the Winnock Hotel fell very far short of the standards you find in other hotels in its class. The basic problem was a "management" issue - there appeared to be a complete lack of anyone with the "nouse" to get the restaurant servive organised. The service was consistently bad and, on one occasion when we ask "what had happened to the soup" the "manager" informed us (quite curtly & dismissively) that "its only been 28 minutes since you placed the order"........which, conveniently, ignored the 10 plus minutes we had waited for the order to be taken. The whole process at each meal was unnecessarily protracted and the service was "without grace" - one waitress even chewed gum throughout service. It is appropriate the mention one older lady who served at breakfast 3 days a week - she WAS cheery, helpful and all that you usually find in this type of "family" hotel - but you sense that she won't survive long.......as she didn't fit the culture. Otherwise the food wasn't bad - but the lack of any fresh fruit, yogurt or continental elements on offer at breakfast didn't suit my wife. This is my 1000th Trip Advisor review and its disappointing that it has to be so negative but the overall impression of the Winnock Hotel was very poor. Incidentally we won't return on a "room only" basis since there are limited "eating" options within walking distance. A final "PS", the soup did arrive - 55 minutes after the order was placed

"Fantastic hotel in a beautiful location "

User 25/10/2019

What a wonderful place to spend the night after our first day of walking the highland way. We had a lovely warm welcome from the reception staff. They seemed to appreciate the fact we were walkers and nothing was too much hassle. The room was spotless with tea and coffee making facilities. We didn't eat here at night, because of a pre-arranged promise, but when we returned to the hotel, the bar was busy with customers and the food looked delicious. The breakfast was spot on. All you can eat continental and the traditional cooked options. Just what we needed to fuel our legs for a big day heading to Rowardenan.

"Good place to stay along the West Highland Way."

Randy S, Ann Arbor, Michigan 14/10/2019

This place was OK. Nothing special. I appreciated that towel warmer for drying items. The mattress was not great. Staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Tiny fans are available from the front desk if you need to move the stuffy air around, ventilation was limited.

"Fabulous "

mikecJ9226SW, Staffordshire, United Kingdom 03/10/2019

After a recent trip to Scotland on a combined package trip with the Edinburgh Tattoo we stayed here for 4 nights and it was amazing , nothing was to much trouble , my wife was a vegan and she was accommodated brilliantly even if our coach company “Parry's” were useless, I would recommend most definitely,rooms were clean and well looked after and the food and entertainment was great . I would like to say a massive THANKYOU to all the staff

"Murder Mystery a fun night"

LorraineN241, Edinburgh, United Kingdom 29/09/2019

Excellent value. Firstly what an entertaining night. Excellent 3 course dinner with a welcoming prosecco. Hotel is very nice with lovely staff. Very comfortable beds in nice room. Drink making facilities in room. Would reccommend.

"Too much plastic"

4
Jane M, Dundee, United Kingdom 27/09/2019

Plastic, plastic, plastic. It is disappointing in 2019 to find s hotel still using unnecessary single use plastic despite all that's known about the harm it can cause. Not just plastic tumblers in the bedrooms but plastic tumblers each sealed inside a plastic bag. How about replacing them with glass? Plastic tablecloths on top of the regular ones. Is the money saved on laundry bills significantly greater than the cost of the plastic tablecloths? What about the cost to the environment?

"Great wee place"

2bscotland, scotland 24/09/2019

If fancy is what you want - look elsewhere. Rooms clean but basic, what makes this place is it's staff and food. We stayed Saturday 21st September for 1 night. From checkin onwards staff were great, we had a lovely 3 course meal in restaurant then went into lounge for some live music. Breakfast was buffet cereals, continental etc with hot breakfast made for you. Served piping hot & delicious! Good selection from full English, kippers etc. Lovely area for enjoying the beautiful scenery's

"Didn't appreciate the extremely loud karaoke night"

2
buzzardcam, Washington DC, District of Columbia 17/09/2019

The noise from the kitchen exhaust fan was the least of the issues with this place. On our second night, we found that our room was over a function room with a very heavily-amplified karaoke performer. We were still trying to rest from our trans-Atlantic flight. Our room shook from the sound. After two phone calls to the manager they finally shut down around 10:15 PM. Shower was binary - either full on hot or full cold. Food was mediocre at best.

"A Scottish treasure"

Kelly M, Irvine, United Kingdom 14/09/2019

If you're looking for a luxurious experience the winnock hotel is not for you, however if you are looking for good food, cosy atmosphere, friendly guys in kilts and the experience of a building deep in history - then book a room... we originally started off in room in the old building. This is drenched in history and has many of the original features which we found quaint. We had paid for a refurbed room so Laura moved us to room 70. Laura was really helpful and had a smile and chat with us. The balcony gave a lovely view of the sunset and the wooden rocking chairs were worth paying for the upgrade. Unfortunately the tv in the bathroom didn't work which was disappointing considering the bath took ages to fill... so I didn't get to watch dancing on ice in the bath as I'd planned. The weather was pleasant during our stay - but I could also imagine being in the bar area, on a winters night, next to the fire with a glass of wine. The guy behind the bar was talkative, attentive to the guests around him and it was genuinely an enjoyable experience. The food was lovely with great portions and everyone eating seemed to be enjoying their meals. The waitress in the restaurant rolled her eyes when I requested gravy for my steak pie.... who has steak pie without gravy?????? But her attitude was indeed in the minority. We went to Balmaha, which is close by car. Nothing beats Scotland's landscape when the sun shines. It was glorious. The village has a few pleasant pubs in the close vicinity and all walks of life pass through here - a great atmosphere. There is ample parking around the hotel and the village shop is open until 10. We booked my daughter on a horseriding trek recommended by the hotel-it was fantastic. The village was spotlessly clean, with flowerbeds and hanging baskets - just so pretty. You feel like you're in a world far away and not just a few miles outside Glasgow - will definitely be back.

286evie, Wishaw, United Kingdom 01/09/2019

Had a really good time here last night. The Hotel is a lovely example of a friendly informal welcoming country Restaurant/Pub/Hotel. The rooms and public areas reflect this perfectly - with mixed decor, mixed groups and events, which simply adds to the bustle and charm here. The staff were particularly approachable and created an atmosphere of being pleased to meet and serve their guests, showing interest in all as the evening progressed - the event was well thought out with music afterwards. The "actors" were fab! Their enthusiasm and humour was a tonic - Thank You :) Special mention to Tracy for her attention and to the Guy on reception who checked us in so pleasantly and upgraded our room - which was beautifully decorated and very clean and comfortable.

"Something else"

User 29/08/2019

First off when you arrive in Drymen the main hotel is the Winnock , you drive and park right outside the hotel on narrow road you walk in and the atmosphere hits you, history here lives.The wall here must have seen so many things and the building and rooms experienced things that are untold. The lovely receptionist gave us our keys and then the quest to find our room. The strange thing about this hotel was it doesn't seem that big from the outside but as you trekk to find your room you realise just how massive the place is, you go through corridor after corridor all( numbered) to find your room, all creecky floorboards and the decor makes you believe the myth that the pace is haunted, in fact if it wasn't mentioned I would have guessed it would conjure up such a tale. We got to our rooms and were pleasantly surprised they were more modern than the hallways and very spacious, this is a big hotel folks. Coming downstairs you have what seemed like a ball room and across from that the sumptuous breakfast room. You queue in the morning and you are seated once you give your room number, the most polite waitress comes and takes your order and I must tell you the full breakfast is outstanding, I have never eaten haggis before this trip and must say I'm a fan Big fan, overall a very pleasant stay there is much history here and literature is readily available at reception if you choose to find out. Nice place to stay.

"Nice experience."

Billy W, Harrogate, United Kingdom 29/08/2019

We stayed for only one night on our tour and were well pleased with this hotel. A nice ambience and a welcoming traditional décor. It's clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, well cooked and well presented. The only disappointment was the bed which was very hard and thoroughly uncomfortable, which is a pity as otherwise I would have rated this hotel as excellent. We'll certainly return there if we are in that area.

"Beautiful, comfortable, traditional hotel set on village green, offering a warm welcome with excellent food and service"

Annette M, Kingswinford, United Kingdom 28/08/2019

Such a pretty spot, with just a few minutes drive to Loch Lomond and an ideal base for exploring further afield. We visited Balloch with the Lomond Shores Tourist attraction, Luss, Inveraray and even travelled to Edinburgh from there. The food could not be faulted and the Staff were always friendly and helpful. When our relatives visited us there, on Sunday afternoon, the chef made warm fresh scones and cakes for 10 of us, even though they were preparing a lot of main meals, which looked appetising and well presented and they had to prepare for coach party meals later.
