We spent a very enjoyable weekend at Cavens. We had one of the larger rooms, which was spacious and well furnished, with a lovely view over the gardens. On the down side the room was too hot (not a frequent complaint in West Scotland!) because it was facing the sun most of the day and some of the windows had been painted shut, or weren't designed to open in the first place. But the staff were very helpful in providing a fan and we managed to cool it down.
The restaurant was excellent - good food in a very pleasant room. If anything the service was too attentive, with plates being whisked away whilst still chewing the last mouthful, which rather spoilt the otherwise relaxed atmosphere.
The surrounding countryside was fantastic, and very peaceful. We couldn't believe how quiet the roads were even in lovely weather and at a weekend.
A good place for a quiet and enjoyable weekend break.
