Hotel is very, very tired having been neglected by previous owners. Bags of potential so good luck to the current owners.
Staff are all excellent; friendly and attentive.
Food is of a high standard, well presented and good value for money. A more than adequate, well priced wine list completes this side of the experience.
The bedroom was large. Not the twin we had requested....some kind of maintenance issue with it, so we were allocated this larger room with a large double bed and a made up sofa bed. Despite fronting to the main road we were not disturbed by traffic noise. We were however put out by the non-working shower.
If it wasn't for the quality of the staff and the food I would advise avoiding. There was a wedding reception and an office party so the locals obviously rate the Dumbuck for such events.

This rural area, on the north bank of the River Clyde, was once the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Strathclyde. Visitors are drawn to historical sites such as Dumbarton castle, where William Wallace was once imprisoned. The castle sits on Dumbarton Rock, a popular rock-climbing spot. Cruises can be taken from Balloch to explore Loch Lomond, and Glasgow City Centre is 45 minutes away by train.
