I was very disappointed with the hotel. The room was small, very cold, dimly lit, the toilet was dirty, the bathroom was extremely dated, it was obvious the room had not been used for a while as there was dust on the damp and condensed window cills. The service in the restaurant was excellent, however the food was disappointing and expensive for what you got.

An excellent bespoke property in a unique location that offered a good range of food choices at reasonable prices. Comfortable rooms and a perfect venue for anglers and weddings.

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.
