Lovely hotelPosted Nov 26, 2013
Pros: The warm friendly atmosphere & the character of the building & its furnishings.
Cons: A bit more variety offered on the main menu - would have loved a fish option.
Location: Setting is superb & packed full of history. Walks in the grounds & if you are a fisherman - well it's simply heaven on earth !
Lovely hotel with a warm friendly atmosphere. The staff were friendly yet professional & the overall Customer Service was excellent. The room was clean, well kept & couldn't be faulted. The food was very good & the restaurant service attentive & good. The setting & grounds are beautiful. Overall it was a great stay & in our view value for money - especially as we opted for an offer package. We will be returning with our daughter & family dog very soon. The fact that the hotel is dog friendly is a huge bonus for us & we would be very happy to pay the supplement required for the dog.

Comfortable Stay in Remote HotelPosted Jun 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Comfortable stay. This was a convenient base to travel to places in the neighbourhood. We ate some meals in the hotel, and had to drive to get to anywhere else to eat. The hotel was a bit tricky to find at first, since it is several miles south of Auldgirth, and their address just gave the name of the village. There are lovely walks along the river by the hotel.

Traquil retreatPosted May 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed midweek and hotel was very quiet which to be honest was exactly what we wanted. Arrived quite late and being pushed for time we decided to order food from the bar as opposed to a three course meal on offer in the restaurant. Seating in the bar for eating leaves a little to be desired however the food was excellent in presentation, quality and great value for money. Staff were efficient and very friendly .Our room was clean and comfortable and was more than adequate for our short stay. Beds were comfortable and the en-suite clean and fresh. Views are stunning and the grounds are exactly what you would expect from a country house estate. Breakfast was excellent , all in all excellent value for money.

A real stunner!Posted Jul 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very comfortable, lovely staff and stunning views. We were particularly taken with the little mob of guinea fowl running free around the estate. We were able to use the hotel's wifi for free each evening in their comfortable lounge. We would definitely go back to Friars Carse.

A beautiful hotel in a peaceful locationPosted May 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed our stay at Friars Carse. Our room was very spacious, with a large bathroom and comfortable sitting area, and a great view of the parkland at the back. There were lots of rabbits & guinea fowl to watch! The bed was huge & very comfortable and our only criticism was that the windows were past due a coat of paint. The breakfasts were good with plenty of choice and were cooked to order 2 mornings out of 3. The menus in the evening were interesting & changed every day; they were modern in style with a Scottish twist to most dishes. The service was friendly and efficient. We had several walks along the river & my husband went fishing, but wasn't lucky, although we did see a red squirrel. The area was convenient for sightseeing; a couple of castles within a half hours drive, and the coast or mountains an hour or so away.

friars carsePosted Feb 29, 2012 on Hotels.com
The setting was scenic and excellent for people who like fishing and country pursuits. Stayed on bed and breakfast basis as I was visiting family locally. Had excellent high tea and would have liked to have dinner but family commitments made this impossible. Breakfast was very good with both continental or full english if prefered. Had a look at the three self catering cottages they were also of a very high standard.

Nice Country TreasurePosted Sep 9, 2011
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night on September 4th, 2011. I was in a superior class room (Oak), which had a lovely bay window with two chairs in a sitting area. It felt very spacious and nicely appointed - a good value for the money. Both the sleeping area and bathroom felt clean. The bar/sitting area on the main level was wood paneled and very cozy (fire was lit in fireplace). With just a little imagination, you could almost feel like a lord of lady of the manor. I wish I would have had more time to explore some of the trails and sights around the property. The turnoff for the hotel was well-marked from the main road. It is a former estate, so a little outside of the town, which is what I was looking for.
