    Very good

    Very good breakfast, nice atmosphere, quiet, because of very large property

    In the bathroom no possibility to open a window and no ventilation. The humidity and "odours" cannot escape easily

    Had to wait for an hour and a half for the room. But we received a bottle of wine as compensation.

    It was the first stop on our tour of Scotland. An ancient hotel with good facilities. A very beautiful garden. The restaurant (several rooms) was very romantic.

    Nice big room, great staff, good bed. The location of the hotel is very nice.

    The breakfast was good but we had to wait in the hallway to get a table. The breakfast area is relatively small.

    All staff I came across were friendly and professional, a very pleasant experience compared to some hotels I've stayed in. The hotel areas and room I stayed in were spotless. Also I was really surprised at how quiet it was at night even though there was a wedding on. Lastly I really enjoyed the pool & gym area, again the staff were excellent.

    If I had to be picky the bed wasn't as comfortable as I would have liked but thats a minor point in the whole experience.

    Peace and quiet even though it was busy. Good service for all meals, and a good choice. Portions reasonable if maybe a bit pricy.

    Lovely hotel, good location. Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was very clean and confortable.

    Room was a bit stuffy during the night and we couldn't seem to locate the air con. Also, we were attending for a wedding and we had very heavy rain and the hotel seem to spring a leek. Their was water dripping down onto the evening reception tables and on the second floor lobby of our accomodation there looked like there had been a bad leek as there were wet towels and buckets everywhere.

    the staff was responsive & timely when we discovered bees in our room, the grounds & buildings are beautiful, room service was prompt, parking was convenient.

    my daughter's room smelled like a musty basement and had a murphy bed -- don't think the room was used much
