“Hen weekend”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and the onsite staff were very helpful.

Was difficult to find accommodation that fitted all 22 of us but it was a great venue for a large group.

Idyllic setting.

“Ormidale house”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Fifteen of our family stayed at Ormidale House between 20-23 April this year. there are four properties within this estate to rent. We rented the Mill House which has been beautifully converted.. The Mill House sleeps far more than the 15 that we were, we had more than enough personal space for ourselves and some extra freedom too. The Mill House has been thoughtfully renovated with luxury in mind, the main room is lovely and has everything that a large party needs. The bedrooms ( i have seen that other people have said that they are a bit small), we loved their quirkiness, if you want hotel rooms...then stay at a hotel? this is a beautifully converted Mill House, simple as that. Our family aged between 10-90 years old stayed and we all loved it here, it had a little something special and oldie worldly for all of us, there was of course the pool for the kids, beautiful small walks for the oldies, just enough time for a small sherry, but for the more adventurous of us we had a discovery of a climb/walk behind the Mill through aged forestry that was amazing, the kids were fascinated by the 4ft tall ants nests that we found and the natural beauty, freshness of the wild trees. The children aged 10-15 years made a bridge from stones and discarded bits of wood across the beautiful water fall that travelled pass the Mill....no X Box needed everyone....just a little imagination. The house is positioned so very well for access to Loch Fyne and a few adventures to other beautiful places. we went for our father in laws 90th Birthday and we all had a lovely, relaxing time....For those that were lucky our favorites was the Owls at night...we loved to hear them in the quiet of the night. lovey memories.

“Amazing Hen Weekend!!”
Reviewed 10 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

person found this review helpful

Having struggled to find accommodation big enough to accommodate a large hen party, myself and another 3 bridesmaids came across the Ormidale House website and we struck lucky! The accommodation is set in a beautiful location in the west of Scotland with a very scenic and picturesque drive which was made even better by the wonderful sunshine that accompanied our weekend. We stayed in Mill House which comfortably slept 22 people and was equipped with everything we needed over the weekend. The house was spotless upon arrival and was equipped with added extras such as tea, coffee and loo roll which was something we had brought ourselves due to it being self-catering. However, these added extras were a bonus! The staff onsite were there to greet us upon arrival and were very friendly and helpful. They happily answered any queries we had and provided us with help as and when required over the weekend, and they did so with a big smile. They had also warmed up the hot tub for us which was frequently used over the weekend and was a great addition to the house.

Additionally, we booked a catering company - All on Us Catering Service - to cook us a 3 course meal on the Saturday night which meant we could enjoy ourselves and join in with the socialising in the evening. We sourced this catering company through John who kindly recommended them. The catering company arrived at 3pm on Saturday afternoon and ensured that the table was set and they were prepared to cook us a 2 course meal followed by a cheeseboard. The staff were polite, friendly and very professional, and cooked us a delicious meal which was great value for money. If looking to book a catering company for an evening I would highly recommend All on Us Catering Service, you will not be disappointed.

I would highly recommend Ormidale House to anyone looking to book a hen weekend or even a family holiday as the location is brilliant and the staff are excellent. John was extremely helpful, efficient and quick at responding to emails and answered any queries we had about the accommodation. I don’t think we could have picked a better place to host my friend’s hen weekend, as a great weekend was had by all. I must thank the staff again for their hospitality over the weekend.

I could not say enough nice things about this place, the house it's self was incredible and the stone walls were beautiful! The surrounding scenery was also so beautiful and just the perfect setting. The staff were so helpful and and the booking process was so smooth!

“Great weekend”
Reviewed 26 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a great weekend. The house is very spacious and had plenty of room for us all.

The house is very impressive in it's size and the layout. The downstairs is great for gatherings and the decor is lovely. Its very comfortable. The bedrooms were also great, although they are small it doesn't really matter as there is enough room to sleep and get dressed. Beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of pillows. The bedding etc was clean. The upstairs sitting area, games and utility rooms and the sauna are also good additions.

Would definitely book again for a group.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 18 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

people found this review helpful

On our recent visit to the Ormidale Estate we stayed at the Mill House. We paid £5400 for 2 nights, which we all understand is a premium time, but still expected a bit of quality . It was nothing short of student accommodation, which had been split into too many bedrooms that there was not even room for a small set of drawers in any of them. As there was no heating you would expect a small heater in the bedrooms, but I gave mine to my nephew who had a young baby and needed to keep his room at a minimum temp. Light bulbs not replaced, lack of any mirrors , so shared a shaving mirror to apply make-up. We made the best of our stay and had a laugh, but would never return to the Millhouse. Christine White

Most of our guests give us 5/5. It is obviously very disappointing to get a review at this level. And I am very sorry we have disappointed these guests. We don't agree that we don't supply quality, and we don't accept the description of student accommodation. We are frank in the website about the bedrooms being small. This is the second review from the same New Year party, and we are taking it on board and on the chin. I don't think we should charge £5,400 for two nights at New Year again - although did include the Garden Cottage and it was therefore for a party of nearly 30, I think. My main response to this review is to quote verbatim from our latest review, giving us 5 stars, as most of our guests do, from guests staying the same month in the same property -

"This is our second year of visiting Ormidale, although last year we stayed in the big hoose. Slightly small party this year so we decided to give The Mill House a try and we were certainly pleased that we did so. The open plan kitchen/dinning/lounge was brilliant - it keep all the party in the same area, although there are still a couple of smaller lounges if you need to get away from the large group. Loved this open plan - especially if you were a cook!! Although the bedrooms were smaller than the big house they were still fine for us OH and did I say that the bedrooms were warm, in fact the whole house was very comfortable - underfloor heating in the downstairs area, which made the place very cozy. Hot tub ready for us when we arrive and I must say nothing can beat sitting in the hot tub at -2 degrees with a glass of wine, good company and the stars shinning. Loved it all so much we have already booked it for next year."

I am so pleased that you enjoyed the stay and appreciated the house - we have almost a 100% satisfaction rate from guests but sadly some of those we don't satisfy are the most likely to post on Tripadviser so it is a relief when some of our happiest customers do so, also! Thanks for the kind words and see you later in the year...
