My family and friends booked 2 lodges for Hogmanay and New a Year. The lodges were beautiful and spotlessly clean. We booked a meal on Hogmanay in the Bistro for 7 adults and 2 children at 8pm. On arrival we pr-ordered the children's meals. When our starters eventually arrived they were really disappointing. The toast served with the Pate was...

The hotel is lovely and the staff are pleasant but our room smelled like stale smoke and the restaurant is a nightmare. Which is a shame because the food was lovely. As the hotel is in the middle of nowhere there is no other options for dinner. On our first night we waited 40minutes to have our order taken while...
