We stayed for two nights at Dinichean House, where the guest accommodation has it's own entrance and lounge area. There are only two guest bedrooms which was perfect as we were two couples travelling together so we had it to ourselves!
The house was built in 2010 to a very high standard, both in the look of the finish and it's 'green' credentials. It's very well insulated, heated by bio-mass boiler from the trees in the grounds and water is their own mineral water. The rooms are very comfortable, complete with king size beds, Sky TV, hairdryer, tea/coffee etc and en-suite. Also provided in the room is a decanter of port and some shortbread which was a lovely touch. Everything is sparkling clean and the towels are lovely and soft.
The lounge/breakfast room has comfy sofas and a CD player so you can happily relax there. There are also wine glasses and a corkscrew/bottle opener provided if you fancy taking your own tipple. Carol very kindly put some beers in the fridge for us during the day so we could have a chilled beer in the evening.
You need to make your choices for breakfast the night before, and the breakfast was lovely. The only thing I expected when I read cereal/fruit/yoghurt on offer was a slightly bigger selection or some fruit salad rather than only whole fruits but that really wasn't an issue. The porridge was lovely!
My only reason for giving a rating of 4 rather than 5 is due to three very small points. There was no mobile signal or wi-fi available, the bed only had a duvet on it (no top sheet) and as it was during Scotland's heatwave when we visited this made for a hot night! And finally, there are lots of midges outside which I know is not the fault of our hosts!
Apart from those tiny things, we had a lovely stay and Carol is a fabulous host who knows how much attention to give her guests and when to give them space. Thank you!
