As a Chef and Hotelier I am generally a critical guest but in this instance I have nothing to complain about, my whole experience was positive.
From the moment we arrived we were treated like long lost friends, management and staff here are proffessional and accommodating, with nothing being too much trouble.The gardens are beautiful, big herbacious borders and well tended lawns.
The rooms are spacious, well appointed with quality toiletries, a very good hospitality tray and lovely little touches like the fudge on my pillow at night.
We only dined here the one night of our four night stay and had we known the standard of food we would have eaten there every night!!!
The Guest lounge is warm and comfortable, we almost fell asleep in front of a roaring fire with a freshly brewed pot of tea and coffee.
I have just read the comments of "Let Down at Laird's Lodge" and believe that they should be totally disregarded, as a four star lodge this place excells ( we have a 5* with Gold award and Lairds is every bit as good!!)
Kindest regards to everyone there for making our stay so enjoyable
