We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and the onsite staff were very helpful.
Was difficult to find accommodation that fitted all 22 of us but it was a great venue for a large group.
Fifteen of our family stayed at Ormidale House between 20-23 April this year. there are four properties within this estate to rent. We rented the Mill House which has been beautifully converted.. The Mill House sleeps far more than the 15 that we were, we had more than enough personal space for ourselves and some extra freedom too. The Mill House has been thoughtfully renovated with luxury in mind, the main room is lovely and has everything that a large party needs. The bedrooms ( i have seen that other people have said that they are a bit small), we loved their quirkiness, if you want hotel rooms...then stay at a hotel? this is a beautifully converted Mill House, simple as that. Our family aged between 10-90 years old stayed and we all loved it here, it had a little something special and oldie worldly for all of us, there was of course the pool for the kids, beautiful small walks for the oldies, just enough time for a small sherry, but for the more adventurous of us we had a discovery of a climb/walk behind the Mill through aged forestry that was amazing, the kids were fascinated by the 4ft tall ants nests that we found and the natural beauty, freshness of the wild trees. The children aged 10-15 years made a bridge from stones and discarded bits of wood across the beautiful water fall that travelled pass the Mill....no X Box needed everyone....just a little imagination. The house is positioned so very well for access to Loch Fyne and a few adventures to other beautiful places. we went for our father in laws 90th Birthday and we all had a lovely, relaxing time....For those that were lucky our favorites was the Owls at night...we loved to hear them in the quiet of the night. lovey memories.

Having struggled to find accommodation big enough to accommodate a large hen party, myself and another 3 bridesmaids came across the Ormidale House website and we struck lucky! The accommodation is set in a beautiful location in the west of Scotland with a very scenic and picturesque drive which was made even better by the wonderful sunshine that accompanied our weekend. We stayed in Mill House which comfortably slept 22 people and was equipped with everything we needed over the weekend. The house was spotless upon arrival and was equipped with added extras such as tea, coffee and loo roll which was something we had brought ourselves due to it being self-catering. However, these added extras were a bonus! The staff onsite were there to greet us upon arrival and were very friendly and helpful. They happily answered any queries we had and provided us with help as and when required over the weekend, and they did so with a big smile. They had also warmed up the hot tub for us which was frequently used over the weekend and was a great addition to the house.
Additionally, we booked a catering company - All on Us Catering Service - to cook us a 3 course meal on the Saturday night which meant we could enjoy ourselves and join in with the socialising in the evening. We sourced this catering company through John who kindly recommended them. The catering company arrived at 3pm on Saturday afternoon and ensured that the table was set and they were prepared to cook us a 2 course meal followed by a cheeseboard. The staff were polite, friendly and very professional, and cooked us a delicious meal which was great value for money. If looking to book a catering company for an evening I would highly recommend All on Us Catering Service, you will not be disappointed.
I would highly recommend Ormidale House to anyone looking to book a hen weekend or even a family holiday as the location is brilliant and the staff are excellent. John was extremely helpful, efficient and quick at responding to emails and answered any queries we had about the accommodation. I don’t think we could have picked a better place to host my friend’s hen weekend, as a great weekend was had by all. I must thank the staff again for their hospitality over the weekend.
I could not say enough nice things about this place, the house it's self was incredible and the stone walls were beautiful! The surrounding scenery was also so beautiful and just the perfect setting. The staff were so helpful and and the booking process was so smooth!
We had a great weekend. The house is very spacious and had plenty of room for us all.
The house is very impressive in it's size and the layout. The downstairs is great for gatherings and the decor is lovely. Its very comfortable. The bedrooms were also great, although they are small it doesn't really matter as there is enough room to sleep and get dressed. Beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of pillows. The bedding etc was clean. The upstairs sitting area, games and utility rooms and the sauna are also good additions.
Would definitely book again for a group.
