We spent the holiday weekend 3-6th May 2013 at Ardconnel House. We live in rural Perthshire and generally take two weekend breaks a year in the more rural parts of Scotland for cycling and golf. During the course of the weekend our hosts revealed that we were their first paying guests. We feel we just have to follow that up with entering their first review on Trip Advisor. We cannot praise our hosts highly enough for their hospitality, service and presentation of their accommodation. Our room and en-suite were immaculate, tasteful, spacious, comfortable and attractive as was the rest of the house. Our breakfasts were equally well presented, extensive and delicious – we reckon the porridge would be hard to beat in the Golden Spurtle World Porridge Making Championships! There were many extra touches demonstrating their thoughtfulness in the preparation of their business start-up. When searching for accommodation we always aim for a minimum 4 star rating and there is no doubt that our hosts have achieved this at the very least. We wish them well in their new venture and look forward to returning.
PS: And Molly the dog was every bit as welcoming and hospitable as her owners.
