It's location and the bedroom but their charm was lost by the effects of our complaint referenced above. Please confirm receipt of this form and advised what action you can help with

Everything. We were excluded from all of the first floor lounges, library and music room due to a private party. We were not advised of this. The downstairs bars and lounges were without heating and very cold so for the whole afternoon we were confined to our room The dining experience was poor fare in again a cold dining room, a half glass of proseco, two mini canapés and poorly presented and quality starter, main course and sweet, all served by the only barman on duty. We were also the only two diners in a large cold room. All of these concerns and the fact that the whole experience was ruined were discussed with the deputy General Manager, Alina Varjoghe, who agreed with all our complaints and offered little by way of explanation. We have asked her to discuss further with her management and that we would be looking for a complimentary DB&B as compensation as they had failed to provide the contracted requirements. Your help in obtaining recompense would be appreciated.

The ambience and antiquity of the whole place in particular but the food,was first class. Staff were all very helpful, friendly and attentive. Rooms and everywhere surrounding them were spotlessly clean. I could not find fault with anything even if I tried.

We had a wonderful time sharing the malt whisky tasting room and the barman was extremely knowledgeble with his recommendations for malts.Impressive stuff and an intimate setting for those who want a true Scottish experience
