This was a return trip to Laird's Lodge, we had stayed there a few years ago. We were delighted to hear that our room was to be upgraded in recognition of our loyalty, lovely touch! The welcome was wonderful, with glass of sparkling wine and lunch in the courtyard, and we enjoyed the chef's demo before dinner on our first evening. The rooms are beautiful, the pool area is lovely, and the other rooms are perfect for drinks and relaxation. Dining here is a great experience, in the evenings and at breakfast. The big shared dining table is a wonderful place for sharing travel experiences and meeting people, we had two lovely evenings. Noted in other reviews that requests to make decisions about dining, etc and accepting one choice of menu could be perceived as overbearing or pressured, and staff might take note of that, but really it's a minor niggle in the whole review. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would wholeheartedly recommend, and we look forward to staying again on our next trip.
