Spent 3 fabulous nights last weekend with Michael Riemenschneider and his top class team. We were made to feel relaxed and welcome as soon as we crossed the threshold. Two lovely comfortable lounges with log fires. Our bedroom was fresh and clean with a large very comfortable bed and Egyptian cotton bedding, flat screen TV and Wi Fi. No problems with the plumbing in our bathroom, which had a modern over-bath drench shower, fluffy white towels and generous Highland Aromatics toiletries. A slight downside to the bedroom was its position over the kitchen, as there was some noise from clearing up in the kitchen late at night, at the beginning of our stay. However the food is what makes this hotel great. We were happy to go with Michael's recommendations and each of our 3, three course evening meals was a delight, with consistency of quality and presentation across the courses. We enjoyed wonderful seafood, meat cooked perfectly and desserts to delight. We wish you and all the team well in your new venture and hope we can come back again soon.
