Outstanding service, outstanding food & hospitality, Luxurious bedrooms, bathrooms and communal areas, so difficult to decide which one to stay in, bedroom, the parlour, where does one relax next? Breakfast, high tea and dinners were all superb, complimented with a great local wine list, beverage and cocktail menu. An array of newspapers to read pre breakfast with a coffee served by Keith. Followed by a breakfast made for kings by Andrew. As a taller and broader person than most, so refreshing to enjoy comfortable lounges, elevated and sizeable bed, full size towels etc etc all the comforts were catered for. We were very fortunate to experience Holyrood with some very close friends for a weekend and to be frank didnt want to leave. Very difficult to compare the experience to others, as nothing compares. 10/10

Believe all the five star reviews. The house has been loverly cared for by Andrew & Keith with an eclectic collection of art, curios & fine furniture. The rooms are immaculate, pay the bit extra for one of the King rooms and you will not be disappointed. Silver service afternoon tea is one of the many highlights to be had here. Attentive pampering is always on hand as are the gourmet dinners on Saturday night. A highlight. This pampering attention to detail is a hark back to another time when hosts took pride in their service . Only concern; too much food. Oh what a problem!.

Holyrood House is a country house hotel owned by the adorable Andrew and Keith. Every aspect of our stay was sheer perfection. As hosts Andrew and Keith could not be faulted. They were available when we needed but allowed us plenty of time and space in the public spaces to relax. Our room was set up fantastically: A large comfortable bed, luxury furnishings, large perfectly clean bathroom and fresh roses. On Saturday night we were able to book in for a country house dinner at a very reasonable cost considering the amazing quality of the food. Afternoon tea was provided each day - Saturday a full high tea - plus a pre-dinner drink. All of that on top of the most delicious and extensive breakfast. Our stay was enhanced in subtle ways by Andrew and Keith's attention to detail of things such as my preference for sparkling water or the date of my birthday later in the year. I am already planning when I can return for my next visit to the heaven that is Holyrood House.

My husband and I just spent 2 luxurious nights with Andrew and Keith at their lovely home, HolyRood House. This was our second visit, and once again we felt like royalty. Andrew and Keith make the perfect hosts. We Stayed in the Donald McLeod suite. If you can afford that little bit extra, I would highly recommend the room. It's grand, and luxuriously sumptuous. The house has been lovingly restored and filled with beautiful artwork and lovely period furniture. It's silver service all the way, with High-Tea on Saturday, Afternoon tea with dessert upon arrival on the Friday, and pre-dinner drinks with nibbles on Friday evening. Make sure you stay for the Saturday night in house dinner. This was an extra $75 a head, but it was the best 3 course meal we have had in a long time. Andrew is a fully qualified chef, and this truly showed. And I warn you, the breakfasts are bountiful and exquisite...you will not need lunch!! We left truly amazed that such high quality service, provided by our hosts, actually exists. Yvonne and Ivano.

Had an amazing experience, the hospitality from Andrew and Keith was exceptional. There are not to many places on my must do again list however I wish to make this a yearly event for myself and my wife. The attention to detail from special gifts being left in your room and the fabulous meals cooked are sublime. I highly recommend and urge you to treat yourself to a wonderful experience. Can not wait to return.
