Second night we had dinner in MacLeod's which was very good. Day one we did Archery with Malcolm, who was so knowledgeable and patient and then we did clay...

Awesome! From being greeted by the friendly reception staff, to the wonderful spa, (heaven!) excellent food in the Hunstmans lodge, beautiful room, immaculately clean, amazing views, perfection!! This is a gem of a place, all the staff could not do more for the customer. Spotless, friendly, luxurious.

We booked the spa package for 3 of us with 2-course lunch for a hen party. The outdoor hot tub is beautiful, as are the saunas. Unfortunately the steam room was closed when we were there, but there were plenty of places to sit and relax before our lunch and treatments. Lunch was lovely...albeit very healthy and not very filling!...

The is and excellent hotel on a country estate. The rooms are good with the majority overlooking the lake. The spa is exceptional - you must make use of the outside infinity spa. The food served in Macleod'sRestaurant is cooked and served to a very high standard. The Yorkshire Breakfast is cooked to order. cannot recommend this hotel too highly.
