From the moment you walk in you are made to feel very welcome at Blackaddie Country House. The room we stayed in had a stunning view down the river which we enjoyed while eating the delicious homemade shortbread and tablet provided.

The food in the hotel's restuarant was superb. Each course was perfectly balanced with amazing flavours and portion sizes were very generous (so much so, that my husband had to finish my dessert!)

Overall, a really enjoyable experience - with the highest standard of hospitable service, great food, and a fine dining experience. This was our first visit to Blackaddie but it certainly won't be the last!

We recently stayed for 2 nights at Blackaddie & had the fine dining dinner both nights. Outstanding food beautifully prepared, cooked, & presented, with amazing intense complimentary flavours & textures served in a relaxed & comfortable environment with none of the fuss & theatrics we have found in some "fine dining" establishments in the past. Ian, Jane, & Daniel are friendly, attentive & all very good at what they do. There were no overdone pretentious long descriptions on the menu, no exhausting preamble about provenance, local sourcing, heritage,& sustainability before we were allowed to eat each course. We loved it,
