Terrible service in restraunt. Staff are friendly however nobody seems to know what they should be doing. I jad to ask twice to order after being left for 25 misns unattended. During my 2 hour dinner all the tables around me sat with dirty dishes from previous guests. Nobody cleared tables! Same at breakfast. Bar overpriced for location.

The Cardrona is an excellent location to explore the Borders area of Scotland. Staff were very welcoming and readily available to assist. The hotel was oversold when we were there which made the single lift quite difficult. Good gym and swimming pool and plenty golfing opportunities.

Enjoyed the stay after two problematic stays elsewhere. The booking obviously didn't have our young daughter as reception were surprised to see her but quickly arranged for a fold out bed to be put in our room. The room itself was great with doors out to the golf course, pity the weather wasn't great to go out though. We had... More

My husband and I stayed for 1 night only on dinner bed and breakfast basis. I originally booked through booking.com but cancelled after I visited the hotels website and realised how much the cheaper it would be. Instead of paying £100 on a room only basis I was offered DBB for £156 and a £ 10 voucher to spend in... More

Stayed here with a family group and the service was rubbish. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere. There were not enough staff to cope with the full hotel. We ate breakfast at a large table that had a couple of unused place settings but they did not clear the dirty dishes away from the previous diners despite me... More

Not up to the standard of other Macdonald hotels. Spa staff were lovely. Woken early morning by noisy golfers using inappropriate language. Room not ready by 3 which impacted on our use of spa. No storage space available for luggage as room full. Disappointing.

Stayed on a Friday and Sat evening. Had a lovely spacious room overlooking the golf course. Couldn't fault the room. Spa and fitness areas were very good. The down side was the service. On the Friday night staff slow to take our order and get us drinks had to keep trying to get waiters attention. The food when it came... More
