In addition the course was looking neglected in a number of areas and there were a number of very... More

It was busy and we had to wait to check in, only to find that our reservations had not been forwarded, which we were informed is normal procedure, because the person responsible for reservations does not work at weekends. Once... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and for your kind comments regarding the hotel. I am sorry your stay was spoiled by the quality of the greens and tee times. Our normal start times are 8 minutes apart so I'm not sure why they were in 3 minute intervals. I will investigate to make sure we... More

Dear Davie Thank you for your review, I am delighted that you enjoyed the hotel part of your golf break. I'm not sure why you were advised that tee times were 3 minutes apart as we do operate to eight minute slots. I do apologise for any upset this caused and I will look into it. The greens have not...

We tried to get into several hotels in the area at short notice, only to find out that there were several events on in the area, and most were fully booked. We eventually found a room at The Macdonald Cardrona, with some misgivings, as we had not heard great things about it. From the road, the hotel does not look... More
