I took my mother for the night before her 80th birthday and she really was treated like a queen! There is no typical hotel "reception" area, instead you are greeted at the door by very smartly (but non-corporate) dressed, polite and charming ladies who invite you to sit at a table with flowers while they check your details and check you in. We were then given a short tour of the main parts of the house, except for the dining room as there was a wedding going on. Taken up to our room (Bruce, above the chapel), this was a charming fairly large double, but with twin beds at our request. I Peaceful, well furnished, all facilities you need and the biggest bathroom I've seen in a long time with a fabulous bath, complete with view to the forest and hills beyond. Heaven! We had a coffee in the lounge with delicious home made shortbread, then a wander round the garden, kitchen garden and to the chapel. Dinner was in the conservatory with open kitchen and we had an excellent 3 courses. Crispy parcel of spiced stone bass, or ham hock terrine starters, then the most sublime venison or halibut, followed by a Walrhona chocolate and praline mousse (Mum said it's the best she's had) and a beautifully varied cheese platter. Then a surprise of a miniature chocolate muffin on a plate decorated with "happy birthday". Washed down with a bottle of Vesevo Aglianico. Would have loved to try the Dame de Montrose as that is my hometown but the budget would not stretch this time... next time for sure! Breakfast was also in the conservatory, delicious fresh fruits, muesli, cereals and fresh cooked dishes to order. There is no spa, no gym, no huge commercial branding; this is a former country house, previously owned by an earl and now by Andy Murray and it is in very safe management hands! You don't feel like a hotel guest, but rather a guest of the family, you just happen to get a bill at the end. Furnishings are top quality and totally lacking in the over renovated, corporate feel of large group hotels. The art on the walls and a lot of the real antiques originally belonged to the Earls and were bought or rented from the family when Cromlix was bought by Andy Murray. This only adds to the lovely welcoming atmosphere. I definitely want to come back and next time for 2 nights so we don't have to rush to pack after breakfast. This is a place to relax and enjoy. Thank you so much to the Cromlix team for making Mum's birthday so special!

This was supposed to be a treat for my daughter who adores afternoon teas. We have had a good few but thought that Cromlix would be special so pushed the boat out on the £40 per head cost. The photos on the site are misleading as this is not what you get. The spread was incredibly basic for a £40 per head price tag. Selection of 3 small finger sandwiches, 2 little canapés which were pretty dull, small scones and very uninteresting cakes which did not taste anything special. Even down to basics such as really cheap jam in jars which I have had served in many other basic hotels at breakfast. Come on Cromlix….surely you can offer better even homemade. Service was slow. We were given a terrible table in the Conservatory in which we had to endure being sat right next to the open kitchen and cooking burgers on a range which produced a horrible burning fat smell…..not a great atmosphere for enjoying eating food. We just left feeling completely ripped off.

On arrival for afternoon tea we loved our first impressions of this iconic venue and were warmly welcomed. The restaurant was very modern in comparison to the rest of the hotel. Food was excellent washed down by lovely champagne. Enjoyed a cocktail in the garden after which was a lovely ending to our day

The staff were wonderful. Super attentive and friendly but I think perhaps this level of service just isn't for us. We are happy to carry our own bags, pour our own wine and sort ourselves out. This is probably just a personal preference so Im quite sure others will appreciate the service more than us. I know that for a five star hotel many expect and enjoy this level of attentiveness. We just prefer to be left to get on with it, but I appreciate that the staff aren't mind readers! I must say that the turn down service was lovely. It was a true delight to come back from dinner to find the room tidy and our drinks in an ice bucket! The bar was cosy and comfortable but no beer on tap and we felt that the dining area was lacking atmosphere - the room was bright and a bit stark. The food was the biggest disappointment to us. We are huge foodies and expected more given the restaurant has a Michel Roux Jr menu. There was nothing wrong with it but we felt it was overpriced and nothing to write home about! The room and bathroom were huge. Lovely, big comfortable bed, a nice seating area and big bath. The cold tap didn't seem to be working very well so the bath was roasting but in fairness I didn't take much time to try and figure it out and the shower was wonderful! The room was nice but we felt it looked a little tired (Conan Doyle room). The room had no tea and coffee facilities which we found a bit odd and would make for a better stay. I'm sure if we had asked for this it would have been provided but it's the kind of thing you expect in any hotel and especially a 5 star one! We decided to have breakfast in our room and it was lovely. The food was spot on and it was really relaxing enjoying it in our own space. No complaints and was probably the highlight of our stay. Overall, the hotel is nice. It's in pretty surroundings, the staff are a credit to the place and nothing was too much trouble. The evening meal was disappointing and we felt that a few additions such as tea and coffee in the room and a bit more ambience in the dining room would really improve the experience as a whole.

Afternoon tea at Cromlix was just perfect. Just beside the car park is the hotel’s kitchen garden and, being rather early, we walked over to see the many vegetables and herbs, all in neat raised beds. The gardener talked to us for quite some time, making a very enjoyable and relaxing start to our visit. At the hotel, we were made welcome and shown into the drawing room, offered a glass of champagne and given tea menus. Although six other parties were also enjoying tea, the sofas and chairs are far enough apart to prevent any sense of intrusion. It is a very pleasant and relaxing room. The tea itself was loose leaf and so fresh and fragrant that it was delicious and refreshing in itself. Really highlighted the difference between tea of this quality and standard tea bags. The food was well presented with sandwiches on a slate board. Two lots of sandwiches as I’m vegetarian. The addition of beetroot and a quail egg served on a spoon was a good touch. Delicious, very fresh sandwiches. The two types of scones with jam and clotted cream were dainty and very light. Several types of cake followed - Dundee cake, lemon polenta, choux bun, orange battenburg and a strawberry tart. All made in the hotel and faultless. In addition to the food being so good, the staff were very friendly, highly professional and attentive. They heard us talking about the chapel and offered us a tour of this lovely room. They also noticed that I was too full to eat all the scones and cakes and boxed them up for us to have at home. Thank you Cromlix for a memorable afternoon and we will certainly be back.

We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon tea at Cromlix today. The high quality selection of sandwiches and cakes were lovely and the staff could not have been better, ensuring our tea was topped up and we had everything we wanted. A really superb way to spend a Thursday afternoon.

Room: Doyle Cost: £369 for one night Cromlix is small, really small. As you walk up and through the front door, there is a desk on your left hand side, kind of looking like its in the way - that's reception. Some people in their reviews are mentioning cooking smells as you walk in - its true, there's no getting away from that as reception is just off the bar and kitchen - it didn't really bother us though and we were shown to our room. The building itself is extremely old, so the rooms cant hide that fact - you will notice it as you try to walk down the fairly noticeable slope from one side of the room to the other. The bathroom was a wee bit awkward, in that there is a path directly outside it where you could wish a walker "how de doo" as you went about your business. Bed was very comfortable but noisy when you moved. The tv was rubbish - kind of had to crane your neck to the left to watch it. We headed out to explore the place - we played snooker for 20 minutes, saw the hen house (with two hens) and the "kitchen gardens" which killed another 10 minutes. After that, there was pretty much nothing to do except sit in the bar. I suppose if the weather was better we could have walked round the grounds.....but it wasn't, so we didn't. Dinner was excellent actually, as was breakfast....absolutely no complaints. Food is spot on. So, no pool or leisure facilities, rooms require updating, great food though - all in all, I think its a bit overpriced and I probably wouldn't return, hence the 3 stars.

I had been gifted dinner, bed and breakfast here for my birthday . Lucky me! From the minute I arrived with my husband we knew we were on to a winner. Every single staff member we spoke to (or even just walked past) was lovely and friendly and so helpful. Our room (Stewart) was up on the top floor and very posh indeed, especially the bathroom. We were lucky with the weather and passed the time on the terrace with some drinks. The bar staff were all great. Dinner was also top notch. I really liked coming down for a wee cocktail before dinner, having a peek at the menu then being seated when the food was ready. I had ham hock terrine to start then venison, both of which were delicious . I finished with the cheeseboard. It was nice to be able to select what I fancied from the trolley . The young man from Ayrshire who served us was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about his cheese - so sorry didn’t catch his name. We also had a really nice chat with the drinks wizard from Australia who made an old fashioned for my connoisseur husband - he was impressed ! My gimlets were also a bit too delicious ! We had breakfast in bed which was of very high quality indeed. All in all a fab stay. The staff are all a real credit to Cromlix and whomever is in charge of training up this bunch of enthusiastic young folk has done a top job. Well done. My only very very slight gripe was that my pillow was far too soft but to be honest it was the middle of the night and I was a few gimlets down and couldn’t be bothered telling reception - I’m sure they’d have helped out if I had . Maybe offer one hard and one soft as each guest gets 2 anyway ? A very first world problem. Already working out when I can come back !

Stayed for one night only and wished it had been more. Wonderful hotel to visit for a special occasion. Bedrooms with exquisite bathroom, restaurant, outdoor areas all excellent but where the hotel really shines is in the service the staff provide. They create a relaxed atmosphere, not stuffy or formal for being a 5 star hotel, nothing is a problem and they remember personal details to make your stay extra special! Brilliant (just wish you could purchase their bath robes as they are amazing!!)

Cromlix House is a Victorian country house situated just out on the outskirts of Dunblane. We had afternoon tea in the drawing room which give s the feeling of serenity. Unfortunately the service was lacking, with being left too long before being offered a refill of tea. We were offered a tea menu which is basic but the tea is served loose leafed. We were offered three different types of sandwiches e.g smoked salmon and cream cheese;ham and tomato chuntney; egg mayonaise which are very simple. A fruit and plain scone, the clotted cream came in a little pan but was quite sparce( you had to use this sparingly). especially as this is for two peopl. The middle and top plates consisted of various cakes. Overall l would say that this is not the best or most memorable afternoon tea that l have had at this price range.
