“A Great place for a stopover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We stayed at this hotel on our return leg from a 5 day trip motorcycling around Scotland, the rooms and food were excellect quality, the hosts Alan and Sharron made us very welcome and even sorted out so we could watch the moto GP on the TV in the evening, we had a great evening of relaxation and lively convertsation.
Yes we will be staying again if visiting Scotland.

We spent two nights here and it was exactly what we were hoping for. B&Bs can sometimes feel a bit restrictive if there is no public room. The Mansewood has a lovely sitting room with fire, and a wee bar too.
My wife has very specific dietary requirements. Sharon and Alan were very thoughtful and helpful adjusting the standard menu to provide something suitable that she could enjoy.
We eat at Mansewood both nights. It was nice not to have to go out. The food is not elaborate haute cuisine, but it is tasty, well cooked, well presented and reasonable value.
Overall we were very happy with our stay and our welcome. We expect to be back.

Well,

We booked a trip up to this guest house. Family of 4 with a 15 year old and 4 year old. Alan and Sharon were wonderful, friendly and on hand at all times. The guest house is very comfortable, all amenities to a very high standard and beautifully presented. The food was amazing and lots of it. We had wonderful walks and the surrounding natural beauty is breathtaking. The bar area and lounge were very cosy and the beds were very very comfortable. We have booked to go again later on this year. Would highly recommend

An enjoyable bed and breakfast experience, fit for the purpose of four friends hillwalking in the area. Only reservation is that one had to be down for breakfast between 8 and 8.30 on a Sunday! Whatever the rationale, it is not best customer service. Otherwise really good, especially the cosy drinks area.

Stayed here early June. We where doing the Lochs & Glens north Sustans cycle route. This was an ideal location as its only a few hundred meters from the route 7NCN. The owners stored our cycles overnight.
The accommodation and room was clean. Although you are near the road I had no problems with traffic noise getting to sleep. Our party of five cyclist all found it to be a nice place to stay.
The breakfast was very nice and gave us the energy to get up the steep incline out of Lochearnhead.

Just returned from a fantastic trip in Scotland, region Trossachs and Loch Lomond national park. We booked The Mansewood Country house for 4 nights.

First the positive issues:

-location
-nice decoration of the rooms
-clean, tidy.
-warm welcome
-providing tips for trips in the region

Negative issues

- bad bed; we slept on a very small matrass, (1.90 mx 1.40) of bad quality. When we told the host about this complaint we were answered that this was a regular and normal size in Scotland.
- shower was unpredictably hot and cold and a poor jet. We stayed in room 5.
- wi-fi only in a small part of the house, not in the rooms
- breakfast between 8.00-8.30

we booked for 4 nights but made use of only 3 nights because of our own fault, counting the night of the ferry (from Holland) as our first night in the B&B. We only found out our mistake on the next day and wrote an email to The Mansewood country house to let them know we were delayed for 1 night. Of course we offered to pay for the 4 nigths. Upon leaving

When I questioned these things, and suggested a small discount by not paying for the breakfast on the day we didn't show up, it turned out the bill was already completely charged on my creditcard on the first day when we were delayed. It left me with 200 scottisch pounds which I had just got from an ATM. Most important, Alan changed quickly from a hospitable and friendly host into a man who pointed out the ' terms' and rules' of a reservation in a very unpleasant manner. He told me how lucky I was he didn't let me pay the creditcard charges. This was a complete dissapointment and we left pretty upset the B&B.

We payed 280 pounds for 4 nights in a region full of b&b with lots of nice and cosey alternatives. I hope this attitude from the host, when it comes to money was a complete coincidence when I caught him on a bad day.

The rooms, comfort together with this unpleasant situation was definetily not worth the money.

, Owner at Mansewood Country House, responded to this review, July 2, 2012
Thank you for your review and we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay in our home. As you can see from previous reviews your comments are not indicative of others who have stayed or reviews made on our own website.

Our beds are of quality standard doubles and we cannot make them king size overnight. We have had several guests compliment us on our comfortable beds and quality bedding. This guest asked for a room with a bath which we accommodated, they could have had a room with a shower. As the guest described he got a warm welcome, advice and maps about local places to visit, in addition he states the room was clean and nicely decorated, free wi-fi is available in our bar and bay window seating area, it does not reach the bedrooms due to the style of the old building.

They did indeed book for a 4 night stay and did not turn up the first night. We waited till early afternoon the next day but never received a phone call or any email, so as stated in our booking policy the room was charged to his account. We did receive an email, no phone call early morning!! at 2.pm saying they had made a mistake. On there arrival the couple were told they had been charged and offered an extra night free of charge for the mistake they had made, he said it was not possible.

On departure the guest asked for the card transaction to be refunded to his account and he would pay us cash!!!. You can tell from his response that he had no intention of paying for a 4 night stay, as he said he drew out £200 from the ATM to pay us cash, that amount would not have covered his bill. He was not very happy when he realised that he wasn't able to pay a reduced amount and asked for a reduction on the breakfast he never received - breakfasts are free with the room price so no refund was available.

We are not surprised that this guest has left a negative review, we were also subjected to a unpleasant situation.

we spent 1 night in this hotel on 24th
may. We got a warm welcome. We arrived late in the evening. Cot was supplied for my grandson and they had a highchair for breakfast.
Breakfast was delicious and I would highly recommend staying here.
