I've been a regular guest at this late Georgian Grade A-listed country house hotel for both business and pleasure for some years now. I keep being drawn back by the relaxed, unstuffy atmosphere, the outstanding service and the high quality of the food. You can be assured of a warm welcome from the very much hands-on owners Stuart and Susannah... More

Awesome place that is really well maintained. We have all stayed in newer properties that are not as well maintained and cleaned to the high standard of this stately home. For dinner nothing took my fancy so was about to venture into Inverness when chef asked what I would like, got a custom meal to suit my fussiness. 2yr old... More

Located close to where I wanted to climb, so arrived at 2200h and left again at 0800 next morning. However staff were great, especially accomodating my early breakfast needs, room was comfortable and food (well on the strength of the Poacher's Breakfast) was excellent.

The food here was superlative, with the chefs willing to modify almost any dish for a gluten free diner. You are treated to five star service as soon as you walk into the building from friendly staff. It's a little pricey, but well worth the cost. Well worth booking in advance.

Early July we had a very enjoyable 2 night stay. The gardens are really beautiful and full of surprises, perfect for walking our 2 dogs. We returned after a busy day sightseeing to freshly baked scones with jam and cream. Perfection! We ate in the restaurant on the Saturday - the food was excellent and the ambience peaceful. The owners... More

This is a gem of a hotel with dedicated staff that work quickly/efficiently together. We started with 3 nights and extended our stay by one night. Located in the country side and very peaceful and quiet. Excellent food for dinner/breakfast but the menu for dinner changed very little during our stay. Nothing negative to say about the facilities or the... More

This was by far one of my favorite places that we stayed in the UK. The staff was fantastic, they are a truly caring sort that want to make your experience worthwhile. Everything about this room was great. The breakfast was spectacular as well as the dinner. If you want a place that will let you thoroughly enjoy the beauty... More

A wonderful, charming hotel set in a lovely location. The gardens are great, the room was nice and cozy and the food was fantastic - dinner was amazing. The staff were super helpful and very friendly. We booked this the night before and got the last room but even that was more than adequate and the bed was very comfortable.... More
