As we drove up, we were greeted by ducks and geese patrolling the property, very quaint. The house itself is incredible, the rooms are huge and accommodating, the food was exceptional, and the service was well above anything else. The hotel and rooms are very rustic, if you need to see freshly painted walls and new laminate flooring to be happy, don't stay here. The original plank flooring is incredible to look at just from the sheer size of the lumber. The condition of the hotel gives you the feeling of what it might have actually been like to stay there in the day... Tea was served in the study, and dinner in the dining room, both accompanied by huge fireplaces. The smell of the peat burning only takes you back to the day again. The food was exceptional, well prepared and thought out, and yes delicious. The owners and their children were an absolute pleasure to meet. Highly recommended.
