Four of us went to Cromlix for lunch on 2nd June. It was a beautiful day and we were able to sit outside for a pre-lunch drink. The location of the hotel, the general ambiance and the visual experience overall was lovely. The staff were friendly and polite and the service was good. However, I think it would be fair to say that the food in the restaurant was disappointing, and it is certainly not value for money. A few explanations about that comment are as follows - (1) the lunch menu is very limited - just 3 choices on each course (2) Mortadella Sausage is a strange ingredient to use in a starter, when you are dining in a fine dining restaurant! It is basically a type of luncheon meat, and one of the starters had 3 slices of it rolled up on the plate. (3) Portion control didn't seem to be working very well - of our 4 main courses (2 of one dish and 2 of another) one guest got a large portion and the other got a small portion. This was the case for the monkfish and also for the pork belly. (4) the portions of cheese on the cheeseboard were really tiny. For £13.50, we would have expected more cheese. Overall, our bill was £235. A lot of money for a nice, but not outstanding lunch. It didn't help that Andy's family were also having lunch in the restaurant near us, and they seemed to be having very large portions of food that did not appear on the menu.

First lunch out since restrictions were eased. Beautiful day which enhanced the setting. First time we have visited. The restaurant was busy. We thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the food and have recommended a visit to our friends.

Went for a meal tonight and to say we were underwhelmed was an understatement. Started with the poorly kept lawns! The menu was limited and un inspiring. The service towards the end of the evening slow! We left chatting about how long a business can carry on trading on two names! Beware Sir Andy a re think is clearly needed. Would we return? Competition is rife now so very unlikely.

My husband booked this hotel that we’ve been wanting to visit for along time as a special treat for my 60th Birthday and told them well in advance and also asked for a top floor room. He paid a HUGE price for a suite. It was absolutely pouring when we arrived, the car park is quite a distance up lots of steps from the reception and we were soaked when we entered. No offer to help or take coats, we had to ask for the bags to be collected but my husband was asked to help (he’s 73) When we were going upstairs, I did ask if the room was on the top floor. No. I said we had requested a top floor? Oh! I’ll have a look. We waited in the snooker room while this was checked. There was a top floor room available. WHY were we not offered this immediately? On entering the room, my husband had quite expected a little card or a flower/small bottle of wine to celebrate my birthday, no, so he felt quite let down. There was no coffee/tea making facilities offered, no fridge? Having paid so much, we quite expected these things? I think the final straw was that due to COVID the room wasn’t going to be serviced? We did insist this was done. We also ordered an ice bucket, this did not arrive after 1 hour, when I phoned down the Manger said they weren’t very good with the App that they asked us to use!! What I will say is the best thing about his hotel is the restaurant. The food was amazing, especially the sea bass. I did get a small plate with happy birthday on it and 2 chocolates each as a token gesture. Having waited so long to go to this hotel we were sorely disappointed. We’ve travelled elsewhere in Scotland since our stay in far, far cheaper hotels with far, far better facilities. Come on Cromlix! If you’re going to charge these prices up your game! People shouldn’t be leaving feeling disappointed. Absolutely not 5 star.
