After driving 175 miles of winding roads to get to Ormidale I was so looking forward to relaxing with friends for the weekend...big disappointment! The first thing you notice is there are no outside lights so unpacking in the dark is not the best but also how cold the house was too, it just never heated up the whole weekend, the only heating were two plug-in heaters that had to be moved from room to room to keep the kids warm, bedrooms freezing too! The house was not kept to a high standard of cleanliness either with grubby carpets and floors throughout! Kitchen cupboards dusty and dirty, dishwasher broken, coffee machine filthy, no protectors used on bed linen (pillows and dovets stained), extractor fans clogged with dust, rips in furniture, kings size beds=two singles pushed together, downstairs shower a trickle, swimming pool cold...the list goes on and on! I was actually glad to get back home to spend some time in my own house relaxing before going back to work. I found Ormidale a huge disappointment with all its potential wasted! Avoid if you are looking for high end luxury, probably good for lad and ladet hols as I suspect it is more commonly used!
