“Great stay, great service and great weather.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I took a party of 43 to the Eight Acres in September 2013. Everything was ready for us as promised and the food, service (including catering for special tastes), and accommodation was excellent. This was our second visit and we would certainly return in the future if the opportunity comes. G. McNeill (N. Ireland)

Just toured the distilleries (Balvenie excellent) and the four of us were very impressed with the Hotel, the food and especially the staff. They were the highlight of our stay in Scotland. Nothing was too much trouble.

We recently booked a spa break at this hotel. The room (55) was clean and quiet and to be honest we didn't need anymore than that. The highlight of the trip was the amazing service. The restaurant accomodated all our needs efficiently and without hesitation, special thanks to Aiden, Maggie, Michael, Joe, Connor and Helen (who we hope is enjoying a well deserved day off!). And that was only the beggining of a great customer oriented team. At the spa we enjoyed one of the best treatments by Nichole and Kathryn who showed passion for beauty therapy and also gave great advise.
Long story short, hotel and room is perfect for a confy average night rest, but the real luxury comes from the service. We will be back! Keep up the good work!

Irene & Fiona.

Stayed here on business recently, 2 nights DBB and though the single room was small it was adequate for me at 6'5", lots of telly channels, hot shower and filling meals are the plus points, decor a bit tired in places (broken furniture) but is clearly a work in progress!

Food. Yes service can be a bit banquet style in the restaurant with folk not knowing if/what you ordered when they took your order and portions are clearly controlled on the "all in" meals but the quality was good and I was well fed, needing a rest after both dinners! Breakfast great too.

Thank you for your review, our apologies if there were issues on check in, this is extremely rare, however I will clarify that although most booking websites ask for card details this is purely for confirmation reasons, no money is taken and the bill must be settled at hotel level on check out. Our single rooms are exactly that, single rooms with ensuite which have been partially upgraded. Thank you for your comments.

Booked 5 days/4nts in late Aug., and enjoyed our stay. Good food with a bottle of wine each night, decent room and the staff; desk, bar and the dining room were all so helpful.
Hoping to return sometime soon.
From Ethel and I, many thanks to all the staff for a pleasant few days.
