“Never stayed anywhere like it”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Though the pictures were impressive they could not possibly do the beauty of Ormidale House justice. It is incredibly well maintained, with a wide variety of tasteful decorations

You could really feel the history from this incredibly well preserved building.

“Out of This World”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I had the pleasure of staying here for a short break in September and it was the most magical and beautiful place I have ever been. The drive there is filled with spectacular views and landscapes but nothing compared to the grounds and house. From the moment I set foot inside I was transported to another world and instantly felt like I was in a fairy tale! The house is so well kept and I love the traditional charm of the place. You will never find yourself bored here, the grounds are screaming out to be explored and you easily lose track of time while chilling out in the hot tub. I will hopefully be lucky enough to come back to this house and I have already recommended it to friends and family :) Thank you so much for a great stay!

“Best weekend of our lives!!”

I booked Ormidale House for a 12 friends for a friends birthday weekend, John was very fast in responding and very pleasant to deal with. When we arrived we could not believe how absolutely stunning and vast this property and it's gardens are! I stayed inside the house for the full 4 days and still didn't get to see everything as the is property just has sooooo much to see and do! The house was opulent and beautiful with roaring fires, a huge dining table, beautiful drawing room and billiards room and solo much more!! We spent lots of time in the hot tub and cooking delicious dinners on the aga. There were soooo many beautiful bedrooms everyone could have their own room with stunning views of the gorgeous gardens. I really cannot recommend staying at Ormidale enough!! It was the weekend of a lifetime, we made many memories that I will never forget. The perfect opulent getaway if you really want to spoil yourself!!!

“THIS PLACE IS AMAZING”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at Ormidale over 4 days in September, and had the best time in the entire world! The owners were extremely accommodating in allowing extra guests to stay over on the Saturday who were unable to stay for the whole weekend, for a tiny fee, which was nice!! We found the house very easily from Glasgow; we took the ferry across and then took the scenic Loch Lomond Route home which I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND for the water and the hilly sights alone. The house is sooo big we/I definitely got lost a handful of times while exploring and trying to find rooms but that just adds to the magic of the place. The environment is so comfortable, and the bedrooms even more so. We spent the majority of the time hanging out and taking turns in the hot tub and although the heating in the pool was broken, it was hardly missed, if even at all. There are so many things to do here, and places to see and discover, that you will never ever be bored!! I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone! Thanks so much for letting us stay and for making my friends birthday the best it could ever be! We will most definitely be back!! 

“Fabulous”
Reviewed June 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

What a beautiful place. Something for all here. Spent the weekend with friends for a birthday celebration. The dog just loved it! The kids had plenty to do with pool, sauna, hot tub, games room, bikes, tennis etc etc. Rooms spotless and comfortable beds. Felt like a Lord and Lady for the weekend. Only thing I would say is I thought the Aga was set a bit hot with no apparent shelf trays for roasting etc but that maybe just us not finding any. Highly recommend for a large party getaway. Thanks to all

“Best weekend ever!”
Reviewed June 16, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We visited Ormidale for the weekend for our 20th wedding anniversary with our family and friends (65-70 of us) at the end of May and had an absolutely superb time! We rented out all 4 properties along with the hot tubs and every single one of our party have been raving about it since we got back!

The properties were very well maintained, clean, comfortable and there was enough room for everyone to be together or if preferred, they could find some quiet time as the accomodation is so vast!

The location is ideal and facilities could not have been any better. We were very luck with the weather but even still, there are plenty of board games, the swimming pool, billiard room, etc. if you aren't so lucky and the hot tubs are so ggod that it wouldn't matter what the weather was anyway!

We really has an amazing time and with a bit of organisation, I am sure we will be back again in the very near future!
