Summary

Any meal in the lavishly opulent setting of this Georgian, former private estate inside the city (the first in Scotland to grow rhubarb – hence the name) is “great for a special treat”. The food is “very good”, including breakfast and afternoon tea.

Summary

“A fab experience from start to finish”; “so plush and warming” (“both genteel and relaxed”) and with log fires crackling in its “highly decorated and historic rooms”, this Georgian country pile certainly enjoys “memorable surroundings”. Food is, mercifully, also “excellent” – not least an afternoon tea that “surpasses all others” (haggis bonbons, anyone?).

Summary

A “stunning” country house hotel, set in its own grounds, and fusing “Georgian baronial and modern OTT chic”, including a sitting room with a “truly amazing density of posh bric-a-brac”; happily “the decor is matched by excellent service and flavours to entice”. Top tip – “classy” afternoon teas a highlight.
