A mid-week break at Boath House is quite the experience. With a delightful country house feel, ample grounds (although they will be much nicer in the Summer) and a restaurant of the highest standards. My wife and I were staying along with only one other guest (first night only) so there was the chance it could have felt you were being watched by the staff but they kept a nice distance, while at the same time being close at hand for any requests. We stayed in Room 3 which is the largest hotel room I've ever been in. I felt like a kid being able to run around this massive room. This was all before I'd even seen the bathroom. With a walk in shower, twin baths looking out to the lake, chaise longue, dressing table and twin sinks - now this is a bathroom to behold.
Both evenings we ate in the restaurant, experiencing six-courses of first class cooking. We were looked after by Sam and Jonny and the friendly and informative approach they have to service is wonderful. Both were well versed in the methods that the chef had used to prepare the food and any question that they didn't know the answer to was found out immediately.
Breakfast the following morning - although still full to bursting from the previous nights indulgence - was a class of its own. Porridge along with West coast smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were divine.
While it comes at a cost if you can afford or justify the luxury this is a place well worth visiting.
