We stayed during our Oct. 2019 tour of Scotland. We stayed in the new rooms in the back. Beautiful and clean. We sat on the room’s patio enjoying a bottle of wine during the evening. Grounds are beautiful and manicured. Breakfast in the main building was one of the best of our trip.

Booked into the cocoon suite for a three night stay. It’s in the building across from the main hotel. Check in was fast and friendly and I was asked about booking dinner or time in the swimming pool. Room was clean and it was great having a separate sitting area. Had dinner in the conservatory restaurant on two nights and food was delicious. Breakfast was served downstairs and had a good choice of hot and cold food. I tried the cold meat and cheese platter one morning and it was really good. Due to covid there was no buffet, instead it was table service. Staff were helpful. All staff were friendly and helpful and all covid protocols were being followed. Great location within walking distance to the town centre.

Stayed her for 3 nights in Dec and alsp booked a meeting room and as I have come to expect from the team at Kingsmills it was fantastic from start to finish. This was my first visit since COVID so wasn't sure what to expect but I recieved a clear courtesy email with all the details then a lovely call the day of check in. I was in a Luxury King room which was spacious and included a sofa - I really appreciate the sofa when I'm in a place for more than 1 night. Room was beautiful and had a lovely view of the gardens. I ate in the restaurant and had a few drinks- all fantastic! Best dacquiri's I have had in a long time. Breakfast is also really good. I hired the Macleod suite for a couple of work meetings and again set up was very safe - all social distanced, all had own water, glasses etc and had a beautiful Xmas tree. All the amenities were provided on time as requested. Felt really safe throughout as there was no crowds, lots of sanitiser available and clear directions for us which kept us within the rules. What really makes this hotel however are the staff team as they are fantastic. Everyone i met was warm, friendly and welcoming. Its clearly been a tough year for this sector but you wouldn't know it. They had a smile on their face (under the mask) the whole time. I love coming here and will continue to do so. When I am in the Highlands its a warm welcome and feels like coming home.

Booked a luxury family room for 3 nights. me the wife, 3 month old baby and a 3 year old toddler fitted comfortable. Check in was a breeze and so was check out. Staff were fantastic and so was the food. A bit pricey but it was good. Great selection of drink provided. Breakfast was great but be sure to arrive in plenty time as they run out of some items buy the time we got down even before 10 am. Hats off to Jackie in the bar for keeping our toddler amused during our stay. Pool was good but only 30 mins at a time and you have to book a slot which to be fair was enough. Now for the niggley bits, I know covid has taken over our lives but paper cups in a so called luxury room really. Great having a separate TV for the kids section of the room just a pitty there wasn't anywhere to plug it in as all the sockets were taken up by other things. I did request a multi socket adaptor but still waiting so no kids tv. Some tired bits showing in our luxury room. If you like pannel heaters then your in luck we had 2 which worked well heating the room as it got chilly quite quickly. Air con/heater worked but didn't require it. Biggest concern for us was the vast amount of trailing cables around. A few times I caught my 3 year old unplugging things and getting in a tangle which doest bear thinking about if he were left any longer un supervised. Overall a nice stay with friendly staff and great food and clean.

Dear Guest, I am glad that overall you enjoyed your three night stay with your family. We do have a wonderful team of associates who work very hard to deliver and exceed guest expectations. As you are aware we have taken a number of steps and procedures to protect all our guests, staff and the communitity, from Covid-19. This runs from reservation process all the way through the guest journey to check out. Paper cups and wooden stirers are only a small part of this, reducing as many touch points as possible. I will invisigate why there was no socket for the children's TV, there shoul be no need for additional power extentions, for the reason you mentioned already. The airconditioning system also doubles up as the heating system as is very effective. The electric panel heaters are there for back up. I do hope to welcome you back to Kingsmills hotel at some point in the future. Kind Regards Craig Ewan Operations Director
