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.

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

As our daughter lives nearly we just called in for tea and scones on a Sunday afternoon. It was wonderful, such friendly staff and a lovely sitting room to have our tea in. Not only did we get scones with lashings of cream and jam but also home made shortbread and home made tablet as well. It was so filling... More

Lovely hotel in beautiful location Very enthusiastic and friendly staff. Adventurous and imaginative menu superbly presented. The Coupe Legoise dessert is to die for! Great breakfast. Large and airy octagonal dining room enhances the dining experience which is unhurried but attentive. Our bedroom was small but was what we booked. Would be worth going for the bigger rooms. Pricey but... More

Arrived here purely by chance and were extremely lucky to get the last available room. We were warmly welcomed by Stuart, the owner and this was mirrored by all the staff throughout our stay. Our room must have been the best room in the house with beautiful views over the garden a luxurious bathroom and a huge comfortable bed. It... More

I've been meaning to write a review to rave about how fantastic this place is for a long time. We arrived quite late after a very long drive during our tour of Scotland. The staff were fantastic. They got us booked in for dinner straight away and got us sat down in front of the fire to relax with a... More

Booked for short 1 night stay. Lovely location/grounds, a warm welcome on arrival, very friendly/efficient staff, fine dinner. Would happily recommend this hotel for the aforementioned reasons and it was fair/good value. No need to leave the hotel and plenty of areas to sit for a drink and chat etc, grounds were lovely and relaxing to walk in as weather... More

Lovely stay last night. Such a warm friendly welcome, very comfortable room and great food. It was very relaxing sitting outside in the sun. We were most impressed with everyone who worked at the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back. Thank you.
