I stayed here at the end of June and had a super time. The room I had at the front of the hotel was spacious and airy, spotless and very well appointed with a comfy bed and stylish en-suite. I ate in the award winning restaurant overlooking the croquet lawn, where the guests were entertained by a family of small ducklings, and I had one of the most delicious starters I think I have ever had. Nowadays in hotels, one always seems to have to wander around a breakfast buffet, but not here. Breakfast, again in the restaurant, was chosen off the menu, and all was fresh and hot, setting me up for the day ahead.
The owners were very welcoming and happy to chat as they personally attended on their guests. This place is a real gem, ideal for an overnight stay when heading up to Scotland from the south, as I was.
