Food excellent Dining room excellent Staff excellent
Fantastic Sunday lunch, food delicious, service excellent, together with entertainment which was not too imposing which led to a perfect atmosphere. I'll definitely be going back.
I enjoyed afternoon as did my friends service was excellent . We all thought maybe more savory, maybe few less cakes and another few sandwiches . Hopefully we will be back soo. And that will be the case.
Thanks to Ardoe house hotel for their part in our Golden Wedding celebrations. The food was excellent, the bar and waiting staff were courteous, patient and very professional. Also thanks to the member of staff who was so helpful to our Australian family with organising some extra treats.
Table we sat at had a draught from door behind which apparently could not be properly closed. We were moved to another table. Otherwise perfect.
All together the experience was lovely. when we received the bill, the waitress had removed the drinks off the bill as an apology for our wait for our food even though we did not wait very long. appreciated the kind thought and would recommend to anyone.
Food was excellent. Service waiting on getting into the restaurant and also the starters arriving were both a bit slow
Had a lovely evening from start to finish. Food was excellent and the staff were atentive. Would highly recommend and will return again.
The evening dinner was excellent. Breakfast spoilt a bit by hard fried eggs and potato scones you could not cut. However everything else was fine and did really enjoy breakfast. Staff very friendly and efficient.
We had dinner but the steak was a bit under cooked and the sauce wasn't great
Unfortunately the teapots, cutlery and napkins were dirty. The waiter only checked on us after an hour when we finished everything.
Overall lovely stay. Shame the room was near lift though, as noisy with function guests returning to rooms
Scones were undercooked and had to be sent back but we had a fresh batch made
Started off well. However the 20 minute wait to be asked if we would like deserts was far too long. Then after deserts, despite being asked it took 30 minutes for the bill to arrive. Then 2 different card machines did not work and we were dumped at the front desk with no information passed to the receptionist about what we were trying to do who couldnt understand that we were not staying, only trying to pay for our meal. The food was average and certainly not worth the extortionate price tag.
The waiter forgot our order and we waited over an hour for our food but the food was lovely and we got drinks on the house ! Lovely vegan menu .
Afternoon tea was good with good selection of sandwiches and cakes. Unfortunately the hotel lacked any atmosphere and drawing room seemed a bit run down. Came as part of a spa day deal, would be good if the spa and hotel could work better together as I received multiple emails/calls regarding confirmation of my booking and each time the details were wrong. For example, I had booked afternoon tea as included in my voucher but then still received emails and a call about confirming my lunch order.
Afternoon tea was nice with good selection of sandwiches and cakes. Unfortunately the hotel lacked any atmosphere and seemed a drawing room seemed a bit run down.
Great Service and fantastic food!
Fantastic family meal, great service from Andrei and his team, will be hack. Food was first class especially the Sirloin steak
Had a voucher for afternoon tea, which we used on Friday. Despite two weddings going on in the hotel, staff were welcoming and attentive. The afternoon tea was delicious, varied and excellent value for money (particularly when compared to other hotels of similar star rating) very enjoyable.
A very nice hotel in lovely surroundings,the food was excellent if a bit pricey,no complaints at all,would recommend it.We didn't use the spa facilities so can't comment on that.
Food and drinks were lovely. Food was exceptional, couldn't fault it. The service was poor, it took us 20 minutes to be asked what we wanted to drink and what we wanted from the menu and there were long waiting times between each course. In addition we were asked politely if the table could be free for 9 o'clock which would have been fine if we hadn't spent 2 hours from our booking at 7 o'clock to just finishing our desserts, this made us feel rushed to leave our table. We were also asked three times in the space of 15 minutes if we would like to see the dessert menu before a dessert menu was brought over. We also asked for water at the table which never arrived and we had to ask again for it. We could also hear an angry chef shouting from the kitchen, which was slightly to our amusement but was not what we wanted to listen to whilst having our dinner. Staff were always polite and friendly but there was a definite lack of organisation/communication. The food was excellent but the service let our dining experience down.
Stayed in a feature room which had a lovely big fireplace in the room. Four of us dined in The restaurant and the food and service was outstanding, as was the breakfast in the morning. This is not the first time we have stayed at Ardoe and certainly won't be our last.
The gluten free afternoon tea was shop bought cakes. There was a macaron with the regular afternoon tea that should have been suitable for gluten free. The lady forgot to bring jam and cream for scones and I had to ask twice for this. The spa treatment was excellent and the staff in the spa were lovely. However, the changing rooms and pool were dated and not luxurious for a spa day. There were babies swimming classes going on at the time so it was very noisy. It didn't particularly bother us at the time but I think it should have been mentioned when booking as if we had been looking for peace and quiet this wouldn't have been so good.
Lovely stay as always , friendly staff love the ardoe Clean will be back soon
