Stayed in the Mill House for our friend Cameron's Hen party.
Firstly, the house itself is awesome. The kitchen was really well equipped for cooking for 25 people.
The rooms are all super comfy, complete with a robe each, which was a lovely touch.
Hot tub and sauna are great additions to the house!
Best til last, the gardens! Nothing better than a walk in nature at 6am, even if the weather wasn't up to it and neither were the rest of the party! Great place for exploring.
Ormidale was an enormous success! One of the best few short holidays i've had. The area is gobsmackingly beautiful and only outdone by the class of the people who manage it, and the incredibly comfortable and impressive accommodation. Who could expect such a first class house in such a remote and stunning location. Of all my times traveling around in Scotland, this left its mark as one of the best. Don't forget to visit the loch and climb the water stream path behind the estate!
I stayed here for a friend's birthday, the house is nice, great having a private hot tub and the house was spacious. That is about all I have to say that is good about this property.
It took us 2 weeks after returning and for my friend to get in contact about our deposit before we were told there had been damage done to the pool area. To which we were then accused of being in the pool area on our first night (Wednesday). We were no where near the pool as in the handbook we knew it wasn't open once we had arrived and settled. So we spent our night in the hot tub/sauna and having a catch up with friends we hadn't seen in a while. on the Thursday morning a few members wandered along to see what allocated time we had in the pool, we weren't sure if others were staying on the estate so thought we best check first. We only stayed about half an hour of our allocated hour as the pool was freezing cold. The claimed damages were present in some photos we had of the area, which in our photos you can clearly see there is mould around this area - clearly hadn't happened over night.
We never once saw ANY member of staff anywhere on site. If the staff had heard any noise coming from the pool area why didn't they investigate this at the time and check straight away what had happened.
I've read another review on here from October 2016 where someone mentioned the pool area had mould etc, the owner replied that it 'was a victim of a bashy bunch of destructive guests'. (Sounding a bit familiar about the way we have been spoken about by the owner) Seems like it's needed an upgrade for a while.
I have seen the emails between my friend and the owner and I am disgusted at the way in which he has spoken to her and about the rest of the party, calling us liars and all sorts of awful names.
Very disappointing to what was, a nice getaway.
Stayed here for my daughters hen weekend. We had a fab time. The house was lovely, with a nice spacious open living and dining area which was perfect for 22 guests.
Situated in a lovely setting not far from Tighnabruich which is also worth a visit.
Had a great weekend with the girls for my friends Hen weekend. A lot of space in the living area and kitchen.
Stayed here for the weekend. Spacious livingroom and kitchen all open plan which is great for large parties.Also smaller games room off the livingroom and utility room with extra fridge freezer. Hot tub and extensive gardens were a bonus for warm summer evenings.
The house and the facilities were fantastic, absolutelt ideallic setting and the onsight staff couldn't have been more helpful! Although the bedrooms are small the beds are extremely comfy and the downstairs kitchen and living areas were perfect for our party of 22. Had a wonderful hen weekend, biggest downside were the midges, definitely bring bug repellent if you plan on coming in the summer!
