After reading one review in particular that was less than complimentary, I am very pleased to say that our stay was perfect. The staff couldn't have done anymore for us, the room was very comfortable & well appointed and the dining room served delicious dinner & breakfast. A previous reviewer mentioned the lack of a working lift, but staff offered... More

2 nights for the Balmoral Games. Very friendly helpful staff in a hotel that needs some serious renovation. No hot water first night, then fire alarm during dinner! Of course food was cold when we were allowed back into the restaurant. Thankfully did get a discount on the room rate.

Well worth the venture North as this hotel is beautiful. Peaceful and laid back with lovely, helpful staff. Food was also lovely and would definitely recommend a stay here. Lift might be a problem for some but we were on the 1st floor so wasn't that much of an issue for us- would have been with heavy cases though. All... More

The hotel is in lovely grounds and looks very impressive from the outside. The receptionist was pleasant and friendly. Our room was at the top of the hotel and as a previous review commented, the lift was out of order and we were given the distinct impression it had been for a long, long time without any prospect of repair...

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. The lift has unfortunately been out of order for some time as we investigated the options for repair but given the age of it the only economical solution is to replace it which is something we are now looking into. All guests are offered assistance with their luggage both on arrival... More

I only stayed one night, on my own too tired to even venture downstairs to the restaurant until breakfast. All the staff were very helpful and happy. Room service was speedy, the food great and all round a very pleasurable experience in comfortable well equipped surroundings. I would stay again in a flash and recommend.

Warm welcome given to the 5 of us and staff accommodated us wanting to change seats and tables. The afternoon was excellent; good selection and all home made. Comfortable and relaxed setting. Reasonably priced.

We only stayed here one night as we were passing through on our way to Cairnoustie. The receptionists were very friendly on checking in. We were designated Room No. 10 at the very top of the house. There was a lift which was marked out of order. I happened to ask how long it was out of order and the... More

We have just returned from a short break at the Tor na Coille hotel. We chose room 17 from the detailed website and everything was as expected. The only comment my wife made was that a full length mirror would have been useful. The breakfast was always good and we were happy with the quality of the dinner in the... More
