Having spent 5 nights in Aviemore, unable to eat out because many restaurants were closed or full & struggling for staff, we were relieved to get booked in for dinner at the Lochearnhead Hotel when we moved to our new base in Balquhidder. From our...first call, we were made welcome & accommodated for dinner despite not staying at the hotel. We had a 3 course meal & the service was very friendly & efficient. We had the lovely home made mushroom soup & pate & then both had venison pie with mushrooms & juniper berries. The pies were packed with tender meat & absolutely delicious. They were accompanied by mixed vegetables including new potatoes, mange tout, carrots & broccoli - a separate portion each. Finally we had sticky toffee pudding & I had the Baileys & Dark Chocolate cheesecake. The food & service were excellent & we enjoyed our food looking out on Loch Earn - this restaurant is definitely worth a visit.More

Excellent Hotel with magnificent views overlooking Loch Earn. We had a lovely family meal and would definitely recommend the Steak and Fish both cooked to perfection and very tasty.

We visited last night for a meal on the last night of our break to lochearnhead. Really nice food, we had the haggis pancakes and the baked Camembert to start and then the salmon and the venison pie for mains, fully recommend them, great service...aswell from a cheery member of staff. Would recommend a visit here if you are in the area. Very covid safe too with great fool proof protocols.More

I've been staying at the Four Seasons hotel in St Fillans, which serves pretty mediocre food, so I was looking for an alternative. The Lochearnhead hotel is run by a hard working couple and all that hard work definitely shows in the restaurant. This is...great food, clearly created with a lot of love for cooking. Great atmosphere created by the wonderful host, so for my next stay at Loch Earn, the Lochearnhead Hotel would certainly top my list.More

It’s lovely to see that one of my favourite places I used to visit when I was a child with my family hasn’t lost its touch. Although we only came in for a bite to eat, we felt that the friendly and welcoming atmosphere made...us feel right at home and the food was absolutely delicious too. For those considering a nice Scottish getaway with stunning views, I cannot recommend this place enough!More

I had been hiking for 7+ hours and had also managed to slip while fording a burn so was absolutely knackered and probably looking a bit dishevelled. I'd been to the pub next door who, after me asking for a taxi number (they didn't know...any) and watching me looking at the menu for 5/10 mins before ordering, advised me "the kitchen has just closed". Rage! I decided to pop in to Lochearnhead Hotel as I wanted to try and revitalise my faith in humanity. They absolutely did not disappoint. While their kitchen was closed they offered to make me up some soup which, after 7+ hours of hiking, was like manna from heaven. They also informed me there was actually a taxi rank right beside the other pub(!!) but unfortunately I'd already ordered one from a town miles and miles away. They were hugely welcoming and engaged me in conversation about beer and the local area. I could not recommend them more highly.More

Our annual weekend at the Lochearnhead Hotel was perfect, as usual. Robert & Amanda really are a great team. Always obliging and very welcoming and Amanda is so accommodating. The food never disappoints, Robert is an excellent chef and the menu suits all tastes. The...rooms are clean and fully equipped with kettle/coffee/tea/hot chocolate/shortbread and toiletries in the bathroom + hairdryer. It’s a lovely comfortable place to relax with ever changing spectacular views no matter the weather. An easy stay.More

Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable owners who care about their guests and the area. Beautiful views over Loch Earn, comfortable beds, plentiful parking and good breakfast. All the ingredients for a relaxed holiday in the Scottish Highlands in a small and well managed hotel.
