Fantastic place for couples to escape to. Rooms are great, lovely building, beautiful gardens. Easy to find. Food in the restaurant is very good, portion sizes are not overwhelming. Staff were friendly. Plenty of parking.

This is truly a beautiful old hotel. The garden and the homestead are delightful. However, the price of tarriff has increased since we were there last, about a year ago. The hotel is now heated, but the heat pump is noisy, as it chugs through the night. We opted not to have dinner, as there was a school ball in...

Just arrived home from our weekend away at the Ormlie Lodge. The building is beautiful, the build quality is inspiring and the scale is really impressive. There were a few little maintenence things in our room....but this is a really big old building so I didn't feel at all let down by these insignificant things. Dinner and breakfast was great,...
