Perfect family holiday, completely relaxing yet loads to do. Ideal hotel for that transition from being just 2 adults to 3 of us. Thank you. Rating 5 out of 5, Paul, received Feb 2013.
We were amazed with the huge number of activities, childcare & lovely holiday accommodation - completely ideal for families as there is enough to keep everyone happy. Would recommend to anyone - we went on a short break so excellent value for money. Rating 5 out of 5, Mary, received Feb 2013.
What an absolute joy! We had a short break at this luxury family friendly hotel & loved it. Excellent choice of activities & the whole family just loved it. We also loved the free kids club - we didn't use it for the full 6 hours but if we wanted to pop to the spa or a quiet dinner in the evening without the children it really suited us. The location as well is perfect - we didn't realise how beautiful Perthshire & the surroundings were - we wouldn't consider going anywhere else for another holiday in Scotland. Rating 5 out of 5, Fiona & Jason (+ 3 kids), received Jan 2013.
We stayed in the self catering holiday cottages which suited us better but was also really good value. The onsite activities were great fun & pretty much catered for whatever you wanted to get up to. Highly recommended. Rating 5 out of 5, Jane, received Dec 2012.
We loved it - family of 3 & I just really needed a break so perfect - our 5 year old loved the creche & as it came free was a great bonus for us. Perfect relaxing, luxury holiday, would go again. Rating 5 out of 5, Emma, received Dec 2012.
