“Perfect location for the hen party!”
Reviewed November 21, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic weekend at The Mill House at Ormidale for my sisters hen party! There were 15 of us so plenty of bedroom space. The bedrooms are a little on the small side but we hardly spent any time in them so it was not an issue for our party.
The communal kitchen and living room area was the perfect size for all of us to sit around and eat, drink and play games.
The Hot Tub was a highlight for our party and we spent most of the weekend dipping in and out and wandering around in our robes.
On the Saturday evening we had a murder mystery party and used the recommended caterers - the starter and main were delicious, however the dessert was a little disappointing. The staff were great though and it was great to have someone else there to cook our dinner!
On site staff and management were great and very helpful - the estate manager even gave us a carton of milk when we ran out.
Although there was another party in the house right next door we never had any issues with sound - which is great when there were 2 huge groups on site!!

We had a wonderful time and I would recommend booking. Decor is of a high standard and sauna, hot tub and swimming pool were enjoyed by all.

I booked the Mill House for my hen weekend (17 girls) and we had a fabulous time. The house was fantastic, from the huge open plan sitting area & modern kitchen, to the hot tub & sauna. So many facilities nearby as well. The staff onsite were always friendly and helpful. We can't recommend this Venue enough.

“Absolutely Stunning.”
Reviewed September 18, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The well equipped Mill House comfortably accommodated all 20 of us for five days and provided us with some unforgettable memories. The house is beautifully layed out if you want to have a cozy day in and the bikes coupled with the proximity to Loch Riddon also enabled us to get a real taste of Scotland.

Fantastic House. Very much planning to return.

“Great location, homely with lots of amenities”
Reviewed September 17, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I stayed in the mill house for the weekend with some old friends. The house is stunning, with a large open plan kitchen living room, ideal for a large group of people.
Lots to do, whether scenic walks, playing tennis or chilling in the sauna or swimming pool. The host John was very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay and whilst organising the weekend.

“Good for hen party.....otherwise AVOID”

We booked this for 3 generations of our family to celebrate a 70th birthday- primarily based on the amenities promised on site and number of people that could be accommodated.

It was clear straight away that it was poorly maintained and after finding the caretaker for the fifth time- to request missing items ( such as not enough cutlery, chairs, towels etc) and fix things ( such as lack of light bulbs, the external door of the garden cottage which literally wouldn't close, had to be bolted from the outside- I could go on....), we gave up.

It's clear this was once a lovely property, but it's been let out to too many hen/stage parties with obvious consequences. The Tripadvisor reviews over the whole summer for this property are evidence of this- we had booked a long time ago. From glitter (everywhere) to evidence of hen parties ( you don't want to know), it didn't feel like the luxury family weekend getaway we had booked.

On the amenities-
Sauna- unusable as the door was broken and protruded into the narrow corridor
Pool- SO cold, unusable. Our children preferred swimming in the sea in wetsuits than the estate pool
Tennis court- unplayable ( we tried), very poorly maintained
Football area- clearly hadn't cut the grass for weeks, if not months- unplayable, (we tried)
I could go on but I think you'll get the picture.

Such a shame. For the money paid we were really disappointed. I did provide constructive feedback to the owner following our visit- they really didn't seem very interested.

On the plus side, it's a lovely part of the country and the beds were clean, and the staff on site were friendly.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. I am sorry that you found any imperfections at all, but it certainly wasn't as a result of neglect or complacency. We have had a full-on season and the house has been eorked quite hard so there are areas of wear and tear that we will get to now that we are down to just weekend bookings. But I do think some of your criticisms are a wee bit over-egged - the football pitch was cut the week before you arrived. The tennis court was played by the parties on either side of you. The sauna was also usable - though we appreciate the door needed pulling to. The swimming pool is kept at 24 degrees - most kids like playing in it while most adults prefer the hot tub. We are full all year round with a mix of happily families on holiday, groups of friends and the occasional pre-wedding hen party. Fortunately most of our guests from all sorts if groups love the house and rate us as better than the website descriptions. We get most of our business through personal recommendation. I am very sorry that you were disappointed. We set high standards for ourselves and we don't like disappointing anyone.
