We went for a birthday dinner. The food was good and they had good voice of mainly local wines. Some of us were a little cold and the background music was sometimes a bit odd. These are all easily fixed. The building is beautiful.

We heard Ormlie Lodge had a new owner and was back in business with breakfast, lunch and dinner so we popped up to have a look. We had jumped the gun as the marketing had given a 1 May date of reopening but it wasn't a problem and we were made welcome. Yasmin our waitress was on her first day... More

Not the first time we have stayed here but most enjoyable. If you want somewhere booked the staff can do it for you even down to putting a bottle of champagne in the room on your arrival! This isn't a cheap option but everyone deserves a treat now and again. The gardens are lovely so if the sun is shining... More

We had a delicious meal at Ormlie Lodge. Hot crusty bread, delicious gnocchi, Creme brûlée. Great selection of local wine. A lot emphasis has been placed on good quality ingredients, flavour combinations and use of local produce.

My son and daughter in law were married at Ormlie Lodge and returned to celebrate 10 years of happy marriage. It was a surprise for the bride who thought they were having a family dinner. The staff were so helpful in the lead up to the night and on the night entered into the spirit of the occasion. The food... More

The property is charming and recently remodeled. I was surprised by the kitchen being closed 2 of the 3 nights I stayed and the included continental breakfast was lacking in variety with few offerings and none fresh. The coffee, however, was great. The place was left unmanaged and unattended after 6pm which I found odd. The wifi, probably split by... More

We've been back and forth on whether or not to open 7 days versus 5 days.
