My wife and I stayed in the Riverside Suite (Room #8) ten years ago for my birthday present/celebration.
We decided to go back again (Friday 3rd - 5th Jan) and booked through a third party on-line site, for the best price. This came back as very good rates and was to be in the Lairds Lodge(s) which is the 3 star part of the hotel. There was a section within the booking form for any special requests etc, and tongue in cheek, asked if we could get the same room as we had before.
We turned up expecting to be told our room was in the Lairds Lodge, only to find they had given us the keys to the upgrade room we asked for FOC. Wow that was really nice of them and we appreciated that nice gesture from them.
Breakfast, as been said before, was cooked to order, so was freshly made and very tasty and plentiful. As usual the grounds and riverside walks were superb and helped blow the cob webs away and great to get out into the countryside.
The staff were brilliant and nothing was too much bother (not that we gave them any lol) their style was very professional, courteous and slick. No faults with the staff in our opinion.
I have no ties with this hotel, other than to have stayed there twice, and would honestly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get away from it all in beautiful surroundings, in an elegant country house hotel, with hard working staff.
