We stayed in Sandown House in mid October and everything was absolutely 5 star plus! We had a gorgeous room in the courtyard which was huge, spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed. The beds were super comfy and very high quality bedding. Bath and shower were great. We had a very warm welcome from Liz and Andy, who went out of their way to help us, especially in light of the Covid restrictions. They even allowed us to eat our takeaway in their beautiful lounge and delivered champagne and strawberries to our room when they discovered it was our Ruby Wedding. We were overwhelmed by their hospitality. The breakfast choice and quality was terrific, I just had to get that granola recipe! We have stayed in a number of top hotels across the world and I can honestly say Sandown is up there!

We chose to stay at Sandown House because we were in the area for a meeting so it was convenient because of its location. WOW!! We really weren't expecting such a stunning place in such beautiful surroundings - we stayed in one of the courtyard suites which was a beautiful building separate to the main house. We had our twelve year old daughter with us....she was more than happy to find the sofa bed was the comfiest she'd ever slept on :-) The whole place was spotlessly clean, the fittings throughout were of a high quality and the shower was lovely. We'd driven up from North Yorkshire so after an eight hour trip, the luxury of Sandown was better than anything we could have imagined. And I haven't even mentioned breakfast yet!!!!! I don't know were to start...it was all beautiful....a fantastic choice and all cooked fresh to order. My partner is still talking about the porridge with fresh cream and whisky! xxxx Thank you Liz and Andy - keep doing what you're doing....it's all perfect

Well the previous reviews don’t lie. From the minute we booked our stay Liz gave us the most exceptional service. There was a wee bit of a mix up regarding availability of a room that was pet friendly but Liz was fantastic and phoned me straight away to sort it out. I think in future I’ll just book directly with her rather than using travel sites as she was able to explain the set up of rooms etc. We stayed in courtyard 3, lovely spacious room with an extremely comfy bed and all the amenities you’d need. The place was spotless, including the large ensuite shower room which had excellent water pressure in the shower and lovely smelling toiletries. There were dog bowls and a towel for our pup which was such a nice touch. We’d brought our own but really good to know for future stays as it saves packing them. Delicious homemade shortbread with our wee tea tray (as well as Yorkshire tea which is my fav) which could be replenished every day if you needed it. Liz is so well organised given the new Covid restrictions and rules. We felt super safe and well looked after. Now to the best bit - the breakfast!!!! We love our food, and we know good food. One of the previous reviews said the breakfast here compares, if not exceeds, 5 star hotels. This is true! We’ve stayed at Gleneagles and regularly go to Turnberry and this is equal to if not better. In particular the best scrambled eggs I’ve l ever tasted and the porridge was delicious. Not something most places get right. All credit to Andy for that!! Liz is so well prepared and has the table all ready with your tea/coffee/juice/jams all dependant on your personal preference. There is a quiet, almost private, beach just a 5 minute walk from the house which our dog loved!!! This place is also a great choice for golfers, which we are not but have family who are and would highly recommend. Liz knows her stuff when it comes to the local area and recommendations which she gives you before you arrive so you can plan but also is on hand during your stay. In summary a great wee break. Fab location for exploring that part of the country. Better hosts you couldn’t find, they are clearly extremely experienced in the hospitality industry and make you feel welcome and well looked after which is what you want. We can’t wait to come back soon.

We had a fabulous overnight stay in Sandown House, Fantastic rooms with great thought in the detail . The bathrooms are excellent and you want to take it with you when you leave ....it’s that good !. Liz and Andy are great hosts and look after you so well . Don’t miss the opportunity to stay here you will not regret it , breakfast is fabulous everything you can think of and after eating that you are filled for the day . “ Don’t want to shout too loud about Sandown House in case there is no rooms left when I want to go Back “ best compliment I can give .
