If you need a place to rest and relax then you can do no better than book a special break at Stirk House. We took advantage of a Sunday Escape that involved a cream tea with prosecco on arrival, followed by dinner and a hearty breakfast the following morning. Our favourite classic room was available in the Lodge and boasts amazing views over the countryside. The grounds surrounding Stirk House are fabulous and a haven for wildlife. We wandered down to the hide and refilled the bird feeders only to be treated to a wonderful visual feast of birds, from nuthatches to great tits, with a cheeky visit from a squirrel. There were many fewer rabbits than we have ever seen before and we are yet to see the deer, but the site has been sympathetically developed to attract owls and butterflies and there were many peacocks and red admirals to be seen, attracted by the buddleia. Dinner was beautifully prepared and presented and served by attentive staff, as was breakfast the following morning. The hotel has benefited from a makeover where the emphasis is very much around a grey palette and a lot of effort has been made to make the communal areas of the Lodge look more like a proper log cabin. It is a very comfortable place to stay. We miss not being served a glass of complimentary pudding wine after dinner and there were no home cooked cookies 'for the journey home,' this time either. It is those little things that used to make Stirk House really special. That said, it will always be our first choice for a restorative break in lovely surroundings. Collapse

My husband and I stayed on Saturday night last weekend. The hotel is a lovely old building, the staff are very helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We were upgraded to a suite which was lovely. The one big downside was that a wedding was in progress and the noise and disruption was considerable. Unfortunately some of the guests were drunk and at about 1.35 am we were woken with some going back to their rooms talking loudly then on two further occasions people standing on the landing talking and laughing obviously drunk. We had to call the night porter twice, he came up to ask them to go to their rooms. It was quiet for a while then started again with some shouting.. We had about 3 hours sleep!!! We have stayed at hotels in the past with weddings taking place and have hardly known it so there is no excuse for this conduct, part of the problem is there is a 24 hour drinking policy for residents which does not help.One man was drunk at 2.30pm trying to access our room 6 with a room 9 key. There was no duty manager the following morning and we complained and had to suggest a reduction in our bill. To summarize we do not advise staying here when a wedding is taking place. Collapse
A good stop off to Scotland, but didn't quite hit the mark

Stayed for one night, to break up the journey to Scotland. A lovely looking building, although how anyone approved the planning for the building of the spa, is anyone's guess. It is ugly and doesn't fit the style of the beautiful main building. Anyway, we stayed in a small but adequate room, overlooking nice views to the back. The bathroom was a fairly decent size, but had a tiny shower cubicle, which was a squeeze even for me who is slim. The water pressure in the shower was awful. When we woke in the morning there was no hot water and after phoning down to Reception, it turned out that the boiler had gone off in the night. The receptionist brought up a key to another room, which was at the other end of the hotel, which had an electric shower. The heat and pressure was great! Funny thing was, this room that was empty and was fabulous (I assume it was a suite) was never offered to us when we booked. Strange. The one huge negative was the bed. I have never slept in a bed that was so soft. I woke up in agony the next day. This was a deal breaker for us in ever staying here again. I got the impression from the guide book in the room that all of the mattresses were the same. Service was a bit hit and miss. On ordering tea and cakes to have outside in the afternoon, I had to chase up where the cakes were. The trio of cakes were actually more like slices of dessert. Not really what I wanted with a cup of tea, however nice they were. Ordered gin and tonics in the bar prior to dinner. I was asked if I wanted ice in them. Who makes a g&t with no ice. No slice of lime either. The food in the restaurant was very nice. A German waitress was very good and attentive. It's a shame as there were really nice elements to our stay. We were very relaxed and the place had a nice feel about it. We would definitely look to stay again, if only it wasn't for the most awful mattress that I couldn't bear to spend another night on.
