Amazing group on deal. Made booking and had to upgrade as very few rooms available. Arrived up a fantastic drive to a very impressive castle. Good check in. Good suite. Personally thought the massive jacuzzi bath was too big. Bit oF water damage on ceiling. Room very nice and view great. Bed a bit soft. Lounge will be great in...

Really welcoming and friendly staff. We found the bedrooms rooms roomy and comfortable. The outlook over the river is fabulous! There's a nice area to sit for a pre dinner drink while ordering our dinner. Great food too.

A friendly welcome, a cosy and spacious room and tasty meals on both evenings of our stay. The staff were attentive and cheerful and the setting of the hotel is delightful with plenty of space to stroll before a pre-dinner drink by a roaring fire.... Scotland in May! The virtually tame guinea fowl in the grounds were very entertaining too!...

Room was OK, clean and the bathroom recently refurbished. We were on a Groupon deal so it probably wasn't the best in the house but as I say was fine and clean. First night (dinner included) there were no steaks left and things seemed a bit odd, but we later found out they were short staffed we believe due to...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one night on Sunday 8th May. We struggled to find it at first, but when we eventually found it we were not disappointed. The building is beautiful and surrounded with lovely grounds and lovely views. We stayed in the Hawthorn room which is really basic. The room could really do with a freshen...
