Me and my husband stayed at The Lovers at the Hideaway Experience and it was amazing from start to finish! The lodge had everything we needed, so much so we didn’t leave for the whole weekend. There is a sauna room, a heat room, a beautiful freestanding bath that you just sink into, as well as an amazing hot tub which allows you to relax and take in the stunning views of the Dundee countryside. We particularly loved the sonos music system throughout the lodge, meaning we could just put our music on, have a few drinks and fully relax. I would highly, highly recommend and we hope to be returning again in the not so distant future!

My wife and I visited the romantics lodge for a couple of nights to get away from all the hustle and bustle of normal life. We found ourselves the perfect little getaway and we were left alone the entire time. The house is lovely and well kept with a couple of little small wear and tear issues but nothing to bother about really. We spent most of the time in the hot tub with the music on the sonos sound system which was just brilliant, same music all throughout the house so you never missed a beat. If there's a clear sky at night I would highly recommend just sitting in the hot tub with all the lights off and let your mind wonder at the stars. It was amazing, When we first arrived we had a look around and found where everything was and how everything worked. There's everything you need to enjoy your stay, if there was one thing I could recommend though and this isn't a massive issue and didn't effect our stay at all but if your like me and my wife and like your drink ice cold then remember and ask for a bag of ice or 2 in the special requests section when booking as there's only 2 small trays that lasted 2 drinks each, I just assumed this would be in the freezer as we thought it might melt by the time we arrived. We did however send a wee txt message asking for more ice and a bag was left at the back door the next morning which was fantastic, great service. the views are perfect and in the morning it was lovely to open the blind and sit with breakfast watching the horse just outside the front window. Then back into the hot tub all day which was nice and hot, I also tried the sauna for a few minutes and that was also great, easy to work and operate. We have now arrived back home and feel sad lol. We want to go back tomorrow then the next day and the next, we will be back and thank you for making our time at the romantics so perfect. 😁
