Loved this place. We were a family of 4 and had to get two rooms. Both rooms were just as nice as the other. The beds were amazing to sleep on and the bathrooms well equipped. Attention to detail was spot on, from the chocolates at room turn down to the water supplied in the rooms that we all fell...

My husband and I stayed two nights with family. The food was excellent in both the pub and dining room. Saturday morning we went out with our guide Jonathan and we caught 4 rainbow trout. We have both fly cast before but Jonathan gave us some much needed fine tuning, and he did a superb job helping us find just...

Our first trip to this luxurious converted estate home was so memorable.The castle itself is on an island in the lake, and I think that confuses some people who think they will be staying in a castle. The estate fronts the river and lake and has several buildings: manor house, gate house, boat house, and so forth. We stayed in...

This hotel, its staff, and grounds are magical. If you are in this area, it is a must. The hotel rooms are beautiful, with huge bathrooms, and comfortable beds, with sofa and chairs. Our room had a small outdoor area, but since the weather was cold, we didn't take advantage of that. Do take the tour of the property with...

All internal refurbishment appear complete with big upgrades to rooms and bathrooms. All very tastefully completed to highest standards. The surrounding gardens and woodlands are undergoing substantial clearance improving access...

This location was recommended by family that had stayed here and it did not disappoint. Correspondence with the hotel prior to our stay was always answered promptly. The staff was warm and welcoming. On arrival, we were upgraded to a beautiful room with a terrace, huge bath, dressing area and river view. The hotel was undergoing renovations, so we needed...

Everything about this hotel was lovely from the staff to the food. The decor is understated and classy. We were luckily enough to visit on a sunny day which was definitely an extra bonus as there are lovely paths around the hotel where you can take a stroll. We had dinner in the restaurant which was beautifully presented and tasted...

Spent two nights at the castle during March staying in a room in the old house. On arrival you can smell the turf fire from the entrance, a lovey welcome. Check in was quick during which we booked our dinner in the bar for that night, dining in the restaurant on the second night. Room was nicely decorated with a...
