well worth the visit to this house but could be better organized as the car park is a fair bit away from house entrance which is not good for people with walking difficulties. We had a guided tour which i would advise as they tell you so much info about this grand house which is not only interesting but amazing... More

We had 2 for 1 tickets for the garden, but I really wanted to see the house so asked if I could pay the difference, but the girl at the desk explained 'there wasn't a button for that' so the only option was for us both to pay £11.50 each which was the full price for house & garden. Decided... More

We had a wonderful day looking around the house and grounds. Firstly we had lunch in the tea room, service was fast, staff very nice, and food was excellent and at a fair price. We had a young lady as our guide, who was still learning, but we could not fault her, she was very good.The house its self is... More

We were really looking forward to visiting Mount Stuart - and we did try twice in fact. The first time we were too early and the girl on reception said we would have to wait about 40 mins. So, we decided to for lunch and come back later. When we arrived back we could see the van that would take... More

It was a lovely day when we visited Mount Stuart. I hadn't realised how large the place was and hadn't left enough time to view all the gardens. It was a bit expensive to get into the house... Just over £11 each, however when inside the house was beautiful. Such detail and time put onto every design. I do wish... More

We visited Mount Stuart house during a trip to Rothesay armed with camera's and video recorders only to be told we couldn't use them inside the house. As it was raining, we couldn't use them outside either. We were part of a coach party but seemed to have overwhelmed the staff there because we were escorted in groups so large... More

Mount Stuart House is a first class day out but make sure you take your own food with you. It took 20 minutes to have an order taken in the restaurant and then a further 45 minutes for the order to be served. This happened on 21 June, which was, according to the only information received, the first busy day... More

Excellent trip brought to life by a really engaging guide. First impressions suggested he may disappear off for a cup of Horlicks after about 10 minutes. Really knew the history of Rothesay, the house, family and all the exhibits. Brought the whole trip to life with great enthusiasm.
