Stayed at Bards Neuk lodge over the Easter holidays and we all had a fabulous time. Lodge is very well equipped with lovely furnishings throughout. No wifi which was a bit of a disaster for the kids. Every room was nice with very comfy beds. The estate itself was great. Very relaxing would definitely recommend it.

Beautiful setting for a relaxed lunch. However the service was poor with no one appearing to be in charge. Staff were more interested in chatting to a friend in next booth. I asked to place order and heard waiter saying 'she'll have to wait a few minutes' Why???? He was not busy!! However when food came it was beautiful and... More
