History of the hotel

Ardoe House sits on an estate which was part of a 1,000 acre parcel of land gifted to Arbroath Abbey by Alexander II, King of Scotland way back in in 1244. It has been described and divided throughout the centuries as the sunny half and the shady half.

Ardoe House was built by Alexander Milne Ogston, the son of a successful Aberdeen soap and candle manufacturer known locally as 'Soapie' Ogston. As well as erecting the fashionable mansion house, he beautified the whole estate with plantations. At the time, taking pride in one's Scottish roots was exceptionally important, and much of Alexander's choices for his prized home reflect this.

For instance, the architect he chose was James Matthew, one of the architects behind Drummuir Castle, Aldourie Castle, Ballindalloch Castle, and work on Cawdor Castle. The Scottish Baronial style chosen for Ardoe House was a popular style, first created for a house built for the famous writer, Sir Walter Scott, whose works fired up renewed passion for Scotland.

Spa break with family

Anon, stayed: November 2019

The hotel and rooms were beautifully maintained, clean and comfortable.

The spa therapists were fantastic and the 3 of us all enjoyed the treatments. The hot stone massage with Anna was excellent and her customer care was superb.
Getting to the spa is a bit tricky as we thought it would be inside but you need to access it by walking outside from the second floor to the spa building. Was a bit cold so take a jacket if in the winter.
The pool was lovely and changing rooms clean. I wasn t offered a bath robe but my sister and cousin had the offer. This should be offered to guests automatically as part of the service.

As part of our deal we had the offer of 3 course meal.. the starter was lovely however our main meal was cold. My cousin did tell the waitress and there was the offer of returning the meal but we didn t want to make a fuss.. the service was friendly but slow.

On arrival one of our lunches was served late, the staff apologised but there was no offer of refund/complementary drink to make up for this.

Unfortunately my cousin was disappointed with the experience and won t return to the hotel. There were some lovely staff who made a real effort however overall, for the price of the package and expectations of a mercury hotel was sadly disappointing.

2 night stay including breakfast with one night's dinner

Ross W, Perthshire, stayed: October 2019

The cleanliness of the linen and rooms, in particular the bathroom, was not of an acceptable standard. The time taken to serve dinner was also unacceptable.
