Club La Costa member for a number of years. Booked Duchally for the first time to treat my mother for her 80th and sister for her 50th. After picking them ( plus another sister) up at Prestwick Airport we had a very lovely (except for Glasgow traffic) drive to Duchally. Great welcome, Iain was incredibly warm and welcoming, as was Nathalie. Lodge was warm and perfect location - just across from the lesiure centre. Mild traffic delay - letting the ducks cross the bridge!
Dinner in the hotel was very good quality and excellent service, even though we were last to dine and had requested 'sparkly' pudding, nothing was too much trouble. And I am sure they all wanted to get off home.
Easy to get to Edinburgh by train from Gleneagles station - Reception booked taxi to pick up from lodge and colect from station. Long day but worth it if you like some wine with dinner and/or prefer to have day off driving.
An absolute must is to visit Gleneagles, we had afternoon tea and it was out of this world. I have had same at the Ritz, London, but the service, humour and client empathy were superb. It is expensive, yet still an experience and a joy.
I have booked again for August and started saving for the afternoon tea (with Bubbles) and a SPA session!!
Duchally will always be a very special place for me and my family and they were vey enamoured by the quality of the lodge and more importantly by the staff.
Car is essential.
