The food was DELICIOUS, both breakfast and dinners. DO NOT miss dinner!! No need to go anywhere else. The dining and lounge areas were exquisitely decorated and comfortable. But I LOVED the guys! I wanted to take them home! I must say, that although the rooms were large in size, perhaps some updating was needed a bit in the rooms...

The staff were great, however some of the gardeners were a little strange and looked at you as you walked around...a bit odd. The food is adventurous, some of the breakfasts missed the mark but others were great. The aircon was...

What a fantastic place to stay. The gardens are beautiful. Very homeley, warm and romantic atmosphere. The food is excellent. 10 out of 10 for the chef. But the cherry on top are the staff.

We asked to purchase a bottle of the Lavender linen room spray before we leave and this was forgotten - sadly - We really would have liked to purchase this from Lairds Lodge :( Is it still possible to get some?
