My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in August 2012 (delayed review as only recently started an account on TripAdvisor) to celebrate 5 years together. We just wanted to relax somewhere peaceful and beautiful, this ticked all the boxes. The staff were very friendly (especially the staff in the restaurant each morning, they were always smiling and chatting to us) and the room was superb - it had a really homely feel to it. The bathroom was also a very good size and came with a lovely set of toiletries. There was a set of bathrobes in the room which was a nice touch. The bed was huge and very comfortable. There were great leisure facilities that we took advantage of - the pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, all of which helped us to unwind. The grounds of the estate are breathtaking, we enjoyed just walking around and enjoying the views.
We really enjoyed the breakfast each morning (which was included in the price) - there was a wide selection of food - everything from cooked breakfast to a selection of cereals and pastries, and lots of different yoghurts and fruit to choose from. You are also brought a rack of toast with your tea/coffee. The dining room itself is very elegant with a beautiful view. We also had dinner at the restaurant one evening which was very nice. The grounds are not too far a drive away from Perth or Stirling which meant we had the option of dining there on two of the nights.
Overall we had a perfect stay and we are thinking of visiting again this August as we enjoyed it so much. Perhaps next time we would consider staying in the lodges as they looked magnificent.
