Stayed for 3 nights with friends. Loved the character of the building. Beautiful setting. Staff are so friendly & helpful. Special mention for Michael in the bar. What a star. All the staff excelled themselves & couldn’t do more for us. Food is absolutely amazing. Looks stunning on the plate & tastes as good as it looks especially the fish & game.

The hotel is beautiful and surrounded by stunning views of garden and lake. We were welcomed by a very friendly receptionist. We stayed in Sports man Lodge. It is a separate building from the main one so get the key and then drive there would be the best option. The room is spacious, clean and with all the accessories we need, like hair dryer and mirrors. The floor is a bit squeaky and the design of the room is old fashion. But this isn’t our top priority because it is very quiet at night and we had a great night of sleep. We had the breakfast included and it is the best thing of the hotel out of all amazing features! The food was served as a Buffett style but the quality of the food is great! I love the bacon, pork sausage and the scramble egg. It is so tasty and the scrambled egg is super smooth and soft. They also serve good coffee and fresh fruits for breakfast. All Staff are very attentive and make you feel like at home. After the breakfast, we spent some time exploring the back garden of the hotel and had a walk along the lake. It is a great place to spend some relaxing time and we wish we had stayed for longer. Would definitely return when we come to visit Scotland in the future.
