What a brilliant holiday. The appartments and grounds are beautifully maintained. The views of Loch Ard from every lodge (balconies offer an opportunity to sit and realise how lucky we were) are just magnificent, rain or shine!
The food and service in the Bistro was excellent. The Maitre'd was very attentive and made sure everyone had what they needed - very professional.
The sunday lunch in the Hotel was disappointing. We had imagined better! Small amount of roast chicken, mashed potatoes and vegetables - no trimmings! Sad.
The Farm next door - Ledard Farm - was brilliant. We shot clay pigeons with the help of Gregor - a wonderful, patient host. We also spent an afternoon with Gregor for a history of the area and history of the farm (intertwined). Gregor is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable host and made us feel very welcome.
No visit to this area could miss The Wee Blether tea rooms. What a treat! We had lunch and coffee and a wonderful breakfast on different days. Lovely!
All in all a real treat of a holiday - even the weather was kind to us.
