Booked DBB for my wife and myself through Myhotel.com and chose executive room for small additional payment. Was not aware that we had chosen school mid term holiday time. But, although the hotel was very busy, the staff dealt admirably with the rush. From our first contact with Clare at reception until our next day checkout, our stay was perfect....

As a birthday treat for my husband I booked an Itison break at the Cardrona. We were both very impressed firstly with the lovely spacious, comfortable room and then the fantastic 3 course dinner that we enjoyed. We found the staff very professional, friendly and attentive. The food and wine were impressive. The spa facilities were good and we enjoyed...

What is wrong with this hotel?? Where do I start... • Arrived and people are kicking about in reception with bath robes after a spa • Facilities way too small for the amount of people, they are putting tables more or less in reception to extend the dining room as it's far to small. • Pool area, changing room doors...

The Hotel has at least 3 Bars but only 1 was open regularly. therefore had to use staff to take orders and Do Not drink the Draft Beer. It was the worst Lager visually...

Arrived on Thursday at 2:00 but our room was not available until 4:30, which was a bit on the late side. Couldn't leave our room open for charging since we had no credit card with us - it was explained that Company policy stopped them using the debit card we offered. Couldn't give us dinner until 9:45 which is too...

This was our 3rd visit to this hotel and I am sorry to say that standards are slipping. Our first visit was in 2015 and myself and friends had a great time and raved about the hotel, we couldn't find fault with it sadly this was not the case this time. The hotel needs investment and maintenance which would help...

We booked a relatively last minute night away at the Cardrona. We've stayed before and enjoyed the food so were happy to try it again despite some of the negative reviews. Arrived for check in at the same time as lots of other people but eventually got allocated a lovely golf course facing room. Big room with large bed and...
