Not impressed.
Leisure facilities broken or in a poor state of repair. Pool heating broken, steam room broken, tiles around pool area cracked or missing, beds by pool in poor state of repair, changing room ceiling falling in. None of which were informed of before a leisure break. Eating, breakfast service appalling, food items not restocked, untidy, rubbish left amongst food, portions small and of average standard. Staff working hard but clearly lacks experienced hospitality staff. Gym staff good and gym good.

We had a great night away it was just what we needed. The staff were very helpful. Our room was a little tired looking and could probably do with a wee upgrade. We had to ask for water for the room, other places we have stayed have glasses and water in the room. But we got very quickly once we asked reception for this. Beautiful setting also great views from room, restaurant etc.

Recent golf stay at Cardrona.
The hotel is lovely and we had booked a deluxe room which was on the ground floor. It had stunning views over the golf course and the hills beyond. We made good use of the leisure facilities and also played the golf course. The breakfasts were good however there was a marked difference between the service on the Friday morning and the Saturday. The Friday service was poor and almost disinterested compared to the Saturday which was slick and efficient. One more point which we found extremely annoying was the lack of attention to the phone calls. We tried without success to book a golf tee time. It took a call to the receptionist to sort this. Our friends who joined us on our second night had tried to phone the hotel for an upgrade and their calls were not answered. People of a certain generation do like to talk with a member of the team.
