Although we had booked Room B&B through yourselves the hotel claimed it was a Room Only booking. I did forget to take the printout of the booking with me so couldn't prove it was B&B. I tried to phone your Customer Service that night but was unable to get through to speak to anyone as phone never answered by a member of staff. Although it was my fault forgetting conformation I would have thought the hotel had the correct reservation details. This was rather disappointing as the price was expensive just for the Room.

I booked the Kailyard Restaurant 5 weeks ago as an 80th birthday present for my mother. The restaurant looked lovely as did the menus. We arrived today to be told that the restaurant was very busy with 2 large bookings. We were told that we would be served lunch near to the bar. We were seated in small area next to the bar at a coffee table. When my husband said the table was not suitable for lunch the waiter sighed and pulled a face. He did bring 2 other tables which he joined together. However these were placed next to the other smaller table and so we were sitting almost on the main corridor. When I asked for another couple of minutes to view the menu the waiter again sighed and pulled a face. On looking at the menu it did not look like the menus for The Kailyard that are on the website. However as the menus say they are sample only I did not query it. I was not surprised that on checking later that we had been given the bar menu The food was nice, it was nice pub grub but not what I had booked and when we were told we would be served in the bar we were not told it would be the bar menu. I find this all very underhand. You book a restaurant, they confirm your booking and then on the day they move you to the bar and give you the bar menu. Oh and the service was very slow. I travelled from Dumbarton to Dunblane as a special treat for my mum’s 80th birthday but it was ruined by Dunblane Hydro. Do not trust them when they confirm a booking, they will just use the underhand tactics that they used with me today. I see that there is another recent review with a very similar experience so this must be a regular tactic that they use. Accept large bookings and fob off smaller parties. They don’t seem to care that they are ruining a family occasion. Dunblane Hydro make a big deal of The Kailyard Restaurant and its connection with Nick Nairn. I wonder what he would make of his name being associated with such poor service Collapse

We visited the Hydro for a birthday celebration lunch for my daughter on 6th May, with her family. 6 of us. Our booking was confirmed from the Nick Nairn Kailliard Restaurant but we found meals were only being served as bar lunches and as we were competing with a large Asian Wedding we were given a table in the Wallace Room. We found the Menu very disappointing in the hamburger or fish and chips style - nothing light and tasty. We ordered two fish and chips , 2 hamburgers, one pricey steak (for growing young man) and a Thai curry with added chicken (slushy with no extras). We did enjoy having the room almost to ourselves finally but shame on Nick Nairn for not being able to provide a more interesting and light type of lunch menu. Very misleading that restaurant meal was not available. Not the celebration we had anticipated! Collapse

Having been excited to come to the Dunblane Hydro and experience the delights of the hotel while on business (with 2 small children it isn’t very often I get to relax), I find I have been put into a tiny room with an awful view. When I asked reception if I could be moved they told me all their single rooms were like this. Therefore all solo/business travellers can expect to be shoved into tiny rooms with none of the well regarded views the Hotel uses to promote itself. Not only that, for me, as a single female traveller I would rather have room service than sit in a restaurant on my own, however eating in a stuffy tiny room is certainly not conducive to this. Bad form. I have been here for 20 minutes and I already feel mis-sold too..Particularly when the hotel is not an inexpensive option. On the plus side, when I complained about a constantly dripping toilet, maintenance have come very quickly to fix it, let’s hope they can! Collapse
