The Dower House is really a lovely place to have a break. I travel a lot and stay in formulaic hotels, and at the core of its charm is the simple truth that the Dower House is very far from being formulaic. If your think that a Marriott is the perfect hotel, then I suspect the Dower House isn't for you.
Mena Aitchison was out host and provided faultless service from the moment of our arrival to our departure. We enjoyed the suite, and had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was very good, with delicious muesli and an excellent choice of cooked breakfast. Alas, we didn't eat dinner there due to other commitments, but will do so next time we stay.
The gardens are lovely, although I was clearly not seeing them at their best due to both the early season and the very harsh winter. Sitting out in the summer must be a real joy however.
For overseas travelers looking for a somewhat quirky Scottish country house experience, I would definitely recommend the Dower House.
