My wife & I booked a short notice, 3 day break at the Duisdale at the end of Feb, with my brother and his wife joining us for the first 2 days. We upgrade the stay to a sea view room with 4 poster bed (room 1), a beatifully appointed room overlooking the sea and mountains beyond. Minor downsides were 1. The modern 4 poster bed is very noisy due to movement in the screwed joints. Turning over in bed during the night resulted in a loud creaking that woke you up. (I would recommend they undo the screws and rub with candlwax). 2. There was very little heat from the radiators. Fortunately they have installed an electrically heated panel in the wall next to the radiator and the weather during our stay was not too cold.
Overall, our stay was very enjoyable. We were made to feel most welcome from the moment we entered until our reluctant departure. Every member of staff was warm, friendly and attentive throughout our stay. The food was exceptional throughout each course, from the hors d'oeuvre, amuse-bouche, starter, velouté, main, pre-dessert & dessert. Portions were well balanced, ensuring that you were not too full to enjoy the next course. Throughout the three days we enjoyed a selection of locally sourced Scallops, Halbut, Salmon, Monkfish, Beef, Pork, Pidgeon, Venison all of which were exquisitly presented and extremely flavoursome.
Although a quite costly stay, I would thoroughly recommend the Duisdale and their excellent staff if you were seeking to spoil yourself for a few days.
