Been here before and loved everything about it, unfortunately this time we treated my elderly parent to an overnight stay with dinner and we were extremely disappointed in 3 things firstly I wasn't impressed with the change of menu, and no steak left, which was our preferred selection for dinner, also we waited 1hr before our food came, i appreciate the restraunt was busy but very disappointing.

Overnight stay - I'm a very fussy eater and I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch, dinner (best chicken Kiev I've had!)& breakfast! No complaints what so ever. Our dinner was severed quickly and we weren't left waiting. Staff friendly and helpful.

Excellent and varied dinner menu over our 3-night stay in the hotel. The restaurant staff were all exceedingly efficient and courteous. The meals were superb and lived up to our expectations.

Chef made a blue cheese sauce for our steaks which wasn't an option on the menu and it was lovely.

The new menu combining the vegetarian options is much better, however the pesto gnocchi has changed & is now like a pesto oily dressing rather than the cream sauce it was before. It was far better before & quite tasteless now. This may just be personal opinion. The cheesecake dessert was beautiful. We waited quite a long time between courses but were happy to because of the quality of the food. Having previously had food poisoning from the Kailyard I am wary of food choices but all the food was cooked beautifully.

The service was great. Really impressed with the staff actually - didn’t seem flustered and all were really friendly. Loved the prawn cocktail - so so meaty!

Although some options on the vegi option looked liked they had changed. They actually were the same dishes as the nice before which was quite disappointing and misleading. Shop bough children pizza is really not acceptable in a 4 star hotel restaurant. At least it was not burnt two nights in a row.

Faaaar too slow service. Water spilled everywhere and not mopped up. Food not as good as it was a year ago. Only 2 courses now included with DBB. Restaurant is silent at 21.43- almost puts you to sleep. A very odd and different atmosphere from when we have been here before.

I dined at The Kailyard as part of a weekend overnight stay with my wife. The food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. All staff were polite, friendly and attentive. The restaurant was tastefully decorated and had a friendly, warm atmosphere. Neither myself or my wife could fault the dishes we had chosen. Well done.

The children's pizza was brick hard and burnt. Obviously shop bought andvof a cheap variety. Really not acceptable in a 4 star hotel regardless of whether a famous chef was involved.

Our main course (which was of poor quality) was placed in front of us in under two minutes after the starter being taken away. This was our third visit, the first was exceptional the second fair and this one, well put it this way we won't be back.

Food and service was lovely , bit overpriced for drink and the bottle of white wine was room temperature rather than chilled as it should be . Breakfast was first class . Well done to all the staff as they are a credit to the hotel , forgiving the white wine over sight

Firstly dropping to two courses does not warrant a £25 price tag. Starters that now have supplements .Main course my plate was warmer than the food on the plate. The lamb was cold, too raw and had a metallic taste, Why does the kitchen falter when a wedding is on? I certainly did not witness attention to detail or philosophy of Nick Nairn.

While we took the offer to stay a night and have the two course meal included, the best choices had a supplement and drinks were expensive. It was good value overall but if paying for all food and drink, it is (as expected perhaps at a restaurant of this kind), rather costly. However meals arrived very quickly and the staff could not have been better regarding courtesy and attentiveness.
