This is our fifth visit staying in Castle Gardens, the Gallops and this time, Maxwells. Kenmore works for us as it is less than two hours drive, has shop, bar and restaurant and we use the stables, golf and boating on the loch. The overall standard is high and we feel at home. A word of warning though, as we discovered there is no insurance for breakages. When the accoutrements are Denby and AEG etc, and there are glass table tops, this can be expensive, in our case £120. This had to be paid before departure as it seems a previous guest had left and failed to pay up - the implication being that I might do the same! Even after four earlier visits? If you have children remember to take plastic cups and plates in case of breakages.
They have taken to warning that the wi if is weak but that's a poor response when like us who need to be in touch, you are standing under a brolly in the rain with an iPad. The day is surely upon us when guaranteed wi if is like the en suit bathroom and the colour telly - a necessity to get four star rating.
The kiddies swing area beside the courtyard needs an update.
Don't let me out you off though. This is an attractive and relaxing place with some style in a beautiful part of Scotland. We plan to return. If they'll have us!
