Stayed for 2 nights B&B. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds & the scenery is amazing. All staff that we encountered were very friendly. Our room (6) was small & quaint!, tiny bathroom that could benefit from a upgrade. Our breakfasts were delicious, great selection and the early morning views over the river made it a perfect way to...

My sister in law booked a table for lunch for my wife and I and the three of us went for lunch. Lovely location right next to the river. Autumnal afternoon with a wedding in house at the time. This meant we had a piper playing outside whilst we had lunch. Service was excellent and the food was superb. I...

Stayed one night for a wedding. Beautiful building and location. Staff were very polite pleasant and efficient. Wedding room decorations etc and catering were all superb. Our room in the annex (Cobbleheugh) was very small no soap and no coat hangers although the latter was speedily rectified after a call to reception not that there was much space to hang...

The website quotes "You might call it a boutique hotel, you might call it a village-style retreat, you might even call it a country hideaway. Whichever; we call it The Lodge – and we think you’re going to like it." Well, after spending a few nights here, we totally agree with the description, and, yes, we did like it, in...

Dear 284james, We are disappointed to read your review on Trip Advisor and have spoken with the staff involved on Sunday. Apparently, you arrived early for dinner and were advised that our evening service didn't start until 6pm and therefore you went for a walk.
