I am afraid that despite the roaring fire and exceptional hospitality I can't say this place blew me away. I was, I'm afraid rather disappointed.
The decor is very new and modern to the point of garishness which was an immediate put-off. We enjoyed a lovely drink in a bay window as we waited for lunch. We dined alone in a long, narrow dining room with tremendous views to the gardens outside. There was something rather sterile and character-less about the designer furnishings which didn't fit in with the Heiland staff and their natural warmth. The lunch itself was very nice, my starter was the star attraction of salmon on oatcakes, I loved every bite. My main I'm afraid, wasn't all that special and even deviated from the menu.
Despite the stunning surroundings and lovely staff it didn't live up to what I expected it to deliver.
