A beautiful building and surrounds. A fantastic beer garden with something for everyone. The atmosphere of the place was great. The room itself, “Roaring Meg” was all we could ask for. It opened out into the beer garden which was perfect for us. The room itself was small but it has everything we needed. With it being a week night the beer garden and pub was quiet by about 9pm which meant we had a very peaceful evening. The spa pool was another treat. Thanks Cardrona we will be back!
