This must be one of the loveliest hotels we have ever stayed in. The hotel is stunning as was our room and the service. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was outstanding. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Thanks to the Lairds Lodge team for making our stay so enjoyable.

From the minute we arrived, Lairds lodge exceeded our expectations. It is beautifully furnished with an interesting mix of old and new furnishings. The staff were very friendly and we felt at home and wished we had been there for more than two nights. The food in the restaurant was lovely with good quality wines. Breakfast was great with interesting... More

All absolutely as you would expect from their web page - beautifully designed, perfect service, calm and delightful in all respects. The only observation to be made is that the food is a tad over-ambitious, and not always as successful as they would have hoped as a result.

We arrived a bit frazzled after a long journey and was immediately swept up and closeted by the team at Lairds. This place is a little gem - the staff are so helpful, friendly and keen to please. The food is amazing; beautifully cooked and served - pure artistry on a plate. Its the little touches like the cookery demo... More

We stayed five nights here for the first time last month and I'm prepared to book for next year right now. The service levels were outstanding, what a great idea to have someone tell you about trips in the morning. Breakfast was lovely, had the special every day and became addicted to their banana bread. We don't on every evening... More

If you are a stiff Briton nostalgic of the empire and want to feel like an earl or lord for a few days, this is the place for you. Service is a little overwhelming, we have a maid at home but I am not used to have so many “servants” looking after me. Of course staff is extremely friendly and... More

Spent one night at Lairds Lodge, beautiful boutique hotel. Service was excellent, staff could not do enough for us. As we didn't want to eat the a la carte meal they spent a good deal of time securing us a table for dinner. The room was comfortable and the champagne and chocolates were a lovely touch as we were on... More
