Knockderry Country House Hotel, Helensburgh
The accommodations were incredible

Knockderry Country House Hotel, Helensburgh
Very Good8.0
cosy hotel, lovely food and mostly friendly staff. very remote you need a car. It seems a little confused with its identity. it's a 4 star but some aspects like food was heading for 5 star but then things like a notice in the bedroom saying 55p for extra biscuits and charging £1 for a free paper leaflet of local walks felt more B&B. Also please loose the white gloves in the restaurant it's really old fashion and comical when worn with halloween costume tights. Our service and food on the sunday evening at dinner however was exceptional and was on par with a recent trip to the savoy.

Will ye no' come back again? - No.
The hotel and restaurant have pretensions but disappoint. Laughably, even with a room rate of £175 without breakfast, they demand 55p if you want a second pack of biscuits for your in-room tea-tray. More seriously, they also charge an extra 2% if you want to settle your bill by credit card. It is almost as if they wish to perpetuate the Scottish stereotype of stinginess.

Nice but expensive given room size & view
The hotel is very pleasant and the staff most helpful and friendly. We also enjoyed a delicious evening meal for two people, consisting of three courses each and a bottle of wine for £122. My only negative comments would be that the room was small for the price (£120) and the view overlooked a back-of-house fire escape and kitchen exit. Admittedly, the room was described as a small double room, but the price seemed high given the size and view. The hotel is also currently undergoing expansion so there is a considerable construction site at the front. Again, not a deal breaker, but just added to the feeling that the room was overpriced.

Visit to Scotland
The Hotel was very comfortable and the staff where Wonderful, The Rooms @ £155.00p per each room But and there is always a But, The Dinner and Breakfast deal was very very expensive and extortionate @ £110.00p Per Person, The food at Dinner was Not very good, The Rib eye Steak was cremated and black, And In the morning the breakfast's were put under the grill and burnt the cooked breakfasts, The eggs were not cooked proper and all runny, Cheers John.
