“Beautiful house, great facilities, would definitely return!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A large group of us stayed at the Mill House and were very happy with the house and the facilities. It was beautifully decorated and had everything that you would need for a great break away (fluffy robes for the hot tub, condiments in the kitchen,and games in the playroom). The owner was really helpful and flexible, letting us check out late as there was nobody due in the next day and letting me bring my dog. The hot tub and grounds were also excellent and I would definitely return in the future!

“Fabulous House!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My friends and I stayed at the Mill House in September 13. The house was AMAZING! Gorgeous sitting room/kitchen area and really well stocked. The surroundings were also wonderful with lovely walks in the area. We were made to feel very welcome and really enjoyed the use of the swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, trampoline and bouncy castle! It would suits many groups from families and groups of friends to hen/stag parties. I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone!

“A rural escape”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Having been a city dweller for most of my short life i was excited at the opportunity to escape the concrete jungle for a short time and explore the Scottish countryside.

When i arrived, with a party of 15 other young adults, i was very impressed at the facilities that the Mill House had to offer. Sky television, wifi (much to the delight of the 'facebook generation') a jacuzzi, a sauna and a trampoline.

The house was spacious, clean and the rooms extremely comfortable.
After reserving myself the best room the house had to offer and unpacking i took to the outdoors, just as the sun was beginning to setting. We then made full use of the BBQ facilities and enjoyed dinner outside with the last few hours of daylight.

I arose the next morning- admittedly with a bit of a sore head- and after a fry up i was ready to explore. One or two of our party took some encouragement, but eventually got out of bed and we began taking in some of what argyll and bute had to offer.

After walking for many hours up hill we eventually came to a clearing and viewed the what can only be described as breathtaking scenery.

It was a heavy heart we had to leave and i look back now already with a sense of nostalgia.

I would highly recommended the Mill House to groups of young adults looking for a tranquil setting to stay with friends.

It is great that the group enjoyed the experience at the Mill House. we set ourselves up primarily for families - bikes, trampoline, swimming pool, etc - but it is nice that groups of adults also use Ormidale for business or pleasure purposes and we get lots of corporate awayday style bookings, now, as well as University reunions, landmark birthdays and even the occasional well-behaved hen party. with swimming pool and hot tub and sauna on site, it is halfway to a pampering venue already!

“A great 3 days spent in comfort”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A great service was provided when we arrived, the house was in pristine condition and we were allowed a lot of freedom from the word go. There was plenty to do including a swimming pool, hot tub, and plenty of space with great scenery in the surrounding areas.

“excellent trip”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We recently went as a group of 18-20 year old students. We had a great time and the house was excellent, it had everything we needed and great facillities. We particularly enjoyed the hot tubs and the mazey walks in the woods. The downstairs space was perfect for socializing and there was plenty of room upstairs to do your own thing.

“Excellent, but a few improvements could be made.”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The Good:

The Mill House was overall, an excellent holiday for our large group. The open plan downstairs level looked fantastic upon entry. Everything was great about that, the living area with the television and full sky package was also excellent. Additionally, there was plenty of storage for 22 people to eat for 4 days and store all their food, which was ideal. All the guests in our group also stated that the beds were very comfortable and the rooms nice and clean. The sauna was a great touch. Also, the location of the mill house was excellent, the grounds were beautiful and the area looked great. The House was amazingly modern and you could tell loads of work has went in to it. It really was lovely to look at you felt you were living in top-end accommodation whilst you were there. Also, we paid a very good price of £1895 for the 4 nights, which between 21 people was a great price- this would definitely make us come back! Generally, the house was 5* and the owners were very accommodating and helpful when we needed something. The second living room located upstairs and the other sitting room downstairs were all excellent locations for people if they wanted some quite time. Overall, the Mill House was excellent and we would say that we would come back.

The Not So Good.
However, there were some areas in which the owner's could make improvements. Firstly, the hot tub. We felt that the hot tub was not maintained well as it lost heat after one day and we were actually told to use the other house's hot tub- thankfully it was not booked. We paid an additional £90 for the maintenance of this hot tub for the four days and we feel that this was not fully exercised. Also, the refrigerators in the houses were not working great. People were keeping stuff in the freezer and it was about as cold as a standard fridge. We had a few milks that went spoiled but it wasn't a big issue whatsoever. The only other problem I could think of which seems minor is that the oven dials and knobs have no markings on them, they have faded, so it is almost impossible to know when the oven or grill is on, or what temperature it is at etc. Finally, the only other problem was the midges, whilst we are totally aware that this is out-with the control of the owner's, there was a terrible amount, the guys in out party tried to have a game of footy in the grounds and it lasted 5 minutes, they were everywhere.

Despite these very minor problems, everyone had and absolutely fantastic time, the owner's could not of been nicer and the house was amazing. It was wonderful, just a few little pointers to make it that wee bit special. The actual house is 5* but those minor little problems were a slight inconvenience. Anyway, stay at Mill House- You'll love it.

N.B- Thanks for letting us stay!

Thanks for the positive review. We are pleased you think of us as 5 star - which isn't what we ever claim for ourselves!!!! I am glad you appreciated the space and the standards of cleanliness. In terms of the wee reservations you put down, we have had the hot tubs serviced and bought new lids. The oven markings have been re-engraved, and the fridges and freezers replaced. The midges are better than they were as we have a colony of bats eating a million a day (but we cant guarantee they will stay!!) we look forward to welcoming you back - though maybe not at quite the same rock-bottom price!!!!
