We were greeted by a friendly gentleman on arrival who provided us with our keys to our rooms. Our room was lovely, so comfortable and a good bottle of wine on arrival to the room. You can understand if you get a deal on Groupon you may not always get the best bottle of wine and the best meal included but not in this case.
We had a look at the extensive wine list prior to our evening meal, and sat in the very comfortable lounge (wifi included) and relaxed with a beautiful Pinotage.
The food was lovely, shin of beef was the main and it fell apart, the dessert trolley was to die for, so much so I kept recommending the crumble to the other tables in the restaurant.
All of the staff were friendly and said hello, while walking around the corridors, including the chef's walking between the kitchen and the restaurant.
On our last evening we had been in to Aviemore for a meal, when we got back to the hotel, we were advised that our table was free if we wished to watch the entertainment and asked if we wanted a bottle of the same wine as last night. Excellent service, it made us feel welcomed and special. We had a wee dance and then off to bed. Breakfast on both days was very good, all well-cooked.
Thank you for a great stay.
