The weekend was great! We had the best time ever there for a family 50th and we were thoroughly impressed with every aspect of the stay, the only reason I didn't mark everything as a '5' is because I feel quite frankly nothing is 5 out of 5 in life. We loved the house so much and we will definitely be back. The scenery was fantastic, and we had so much fun in the big sitting room but also the games cottage, swimming pool and hot tub. Overall everything was great at Ormidale despite a very few, very minor problems which the on-site staff did their best to resolve for us; again we have preached to others since getting home of how good it was, and we will definitely book again and be back.
We had the most magical Xmas ever,the location the house and the owners were all amazing . My dog Walter was spoilt rotten and enjoyed his long walks and a cosy barn to come back to. There was loads to do with the kids the barn had loads of board games and there was an amazing separate games area as well as a pool. The adults loved relaxing in the hot tub after a long walk in beautiful countryside. We will definitely visit again.
Had a lovely weekend away with a group of friends, house was lovely and very clean. Loads of things to do throughout the day so was never bored! Gavin and Adele were a great help and will definitely be booking the old barn again for the weekend.
Stayed here over New Year with a group of friends/family. Unfortunately we were disappointed with many aspects of the Old Barn - terrible showers, leaking bathroom sink, chipped and dirty dishes, kitchen equipment past its best, tiny dining room with only a bench and cushions to sit on - I could go on ...
We were particularly interested in using the games room as there were 5 teenagers in our group - however, none of them would go in it as the equipment was in a terrible condition and walls covered in mould - I would not call that "scruffy and characterful" - I would call it neglected!
On the plus side, the property was lovely and warm, and the beds were comfortable enough.
Think the photographs on the website were taken some time ago - feel that at one time it was probably lovely, but needs work.
I should add that we made a mistake with our departure date, and the owner, John, very kindly offered to let us stay another night - free or charge - a very generous gesture. However, in all honesty, we were glad to leave.
We stayed here for 3 nights just before Christmas and we had a great time. The old barn has a stunning living area and a lovely large kitchen which was perfect for our party.
We had a great time hanging out there and in the hot tub and sauna. The surrounding grounds and facilities kept everyone entertained and the views and scenery is incredible.
All rooms are very well finished and beds large and comfortable.
We would love to return
Recently stayed here for a hen weekend and it was exactly what we were looking for - service was great and the quiet location was perfect for us! Couldnt thank John and Adele enough for all they did!
Stayed at the Old Barn with a large group of guys on a stag. Very comfortable and would recommend to anybody looking to relax in the amazing surroundings of Argyll.
