"Welcoming and luxurious"
Our stay at The Ballroom in Dollarbeg Castle was amazing. Everything felt very relaxed from the first email to Sue right through to our departure. Sue's directions were so precise - attention to detail was second to none!
Jennifer made us feel very welcome as we 'wowed' each room we were shown. The items in the hamper were delicious - so much so that we had to make a stop at the the wee delicatessen on our way home on Monday! The accommodation was extremely comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. The internet was rather slow but maybe this is the case in the Dollar area.
We dined at Hollybank -58, Glasgow Road, Stirling FK7 0PH (01786 812311) on one of the nights. We were given a warm welcome and enjoyed the homely food. It was very busy so booking ahead may be an advantage. We went to the Dormy Clubhouse at the Glen Eagles Hotel (about 20 mins away) for Sunday lunch and spent a lovely afternoon overlooking the King's and Queen's Golf Courses.
As we sat at the beautiful dining table having breakfast on the Monday, reflecting on such a wonderful weekend, we had a visit on the lawns from a couple of deer! What more can I say?
