Knockderry is proud to have been awarded the title of Scotland’s Romantic Hotel of the Year in April 2016. So what makes Knockderry such a romantic place?
The setting has a lot to do with it: Knockderry is a wonderful, quirky building, with nooks and crannies all around, and architectural details aplenty. It sweeps you into its charming embrace, from its lovely drive with views to the loch, its elegant but understated entrance to its comfortable, country house feel. All the ingredients of a unique romantic getaway. Our bedrooms, all individually designed and furnished to offer comfort and luxury, provide the perfect backdrop for relaxation.
Once settled into your room, you can come down to the ante-room with its beautiful loch views or to the drawing room with its fantastically intricate carvings, and nestle by the fireside, sipping on a glass of excellent Scottish whisky or gin, or sharing a bottle of wine from our fabulous wine list. Then there’s the dining room with its tables by the fireside or by the bay window underneath more intricate mogul carvings and beautiful wood panelling.
The Knockderry team provide the right service balance between attentive and discreet. They know when to step in or when to draw back and leave our guests to their time together. We are always happy to help provide the little additional touches that will make a break very special: flowers, chocolates, bath salts, champagne, etc. Our food adds to this air of romance and luxury: it’s beautiful to look at and delicious to eat, helping to fulfil visitors’ expectations of a great evening.
The Knockderry team have been privileged to attend to many guests on their engagements, weddings, honeymoons and anniversaries, and to share in these very special events. A couple of months ago, two couples met in the dining room and started talking. They were both celebrating their wedding anniversary, one couple their first wedding anniversary, the other their 40th. Knockderry’s appeal is timeless and cross-generational, memories are made here and we are delighted and proud to continue delivering these unforgettable moments to our guests. Come and experience it for yourself.
