The hotel and grounds are beautiful, inside is very comfortable. Our evening meal was excellent and with great service. As others have mentioned before, there appears to be 2 types of room available, if you book on the lower rate you would appear to get the unmodernised room, but it is adequate and comfortable with clean and good facilities. Breakfast in the morning was excellent quality, although the Spanish waiter got our order wrong (2 full cooked with poached eggs - came out as 1 full cooked and 2 poached eggs separately) This was quickly corrected but came out with 2 items missing (tomato and mushrooms), apart from this it was cooked to perfection and quality ingredients were used! At check out, we noticed on the bar bill that the items were overcharged, and also mentioned to the receptionist/manager about breakfast, she apologised and corrected everything to our satisfaction. Would we recommend and use this hotel again - Yes - as it has more atmosphere than the nearby Travelodge for the same price!

We loved staying at Friars Carse. The hospitality is superb, and the location a dream. Only minor fault was the size and amenity of the bathroom, which hadn't been cleaned quite well enough, however not a major issue. We would definitely stay there again. It's well worth checking out the rest of this hotel group.

A lovely castle-style building surrounded by a large park and farm. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
