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.

One night stay

Hugh, Kincardineshire, stayed: May 2019

The restaurant staff were very disorganised and we had to make simple requests on numerous occasions for example asking for cutlery to eat our food asked a number of staff for a drink then got one 15 minutes later asked 3 members of staff for the bill then finally got it sometime later
The food was also not what I would expect from a hotel of this quality, although well cooked and presented perhaps it was not to my taste as I did not think certain items went together
There was an event going on in the hotel and I think all trained staff may have been taken to it
But this left the guests with a poor service

Great hotel pity about the spa

SG, Angus, stayed: April 2019

All communcation with offpeak luxury was dealt with in a friendly and efficient manner.
Our stay was a Christmas gift which we have only just had chance to use. we have never been before, followed the direction to the spa car park and there were no signs stating how to actually get into the spa! I had phoned to check whether we should go straight to spa and no-one mentioned the link corridor (which we would have been happy to use)
When we eventually found our way in (down a very iffy path) I asked if there were any changing facilities that my husband could share with me to help me get changed, showered etc. this appears to be a question which is never asked, either that or mobility challenged customers aren't that welcome. I have recently had a hip replacement and still feel unsteady on my feet and certainly can't get into a strange shower without help and without my husband standing outside, he also helps me to dress.
We went into the steam room (very nice) as I stood up I heard something fall to the floor, apparently a very large number of tiles had actually lifted off the seat and were stuck to my rear.
Spa bath, very good but the bar to lean on seemed wobbly.
Lovely pool which, due to the level floor and water depth, I was able to walk up and down easily.
After our spa we went into the hotel, very helpful staff, the room was really nice and everything we expected - we had upgraded to a Premier room.
We asked if it was possible to have a cup of tea and piece of cake, the lovely staff member obtained some small cakes and tea, which were very tasty.
Dinner was delicious and the chef kindly sliced my steak into smaller pieces to make it easier for me to slice which I really apprecaited.
Breakfast was again delicious and an excellent choice for all.
I was having problems taking a photo of the superb easter egg, as staff member helped me (turned out it was flat batteries)
All of the hotel staff were very polite, helpful and made us feel nothing was too much bother.
NOTE lower overall rating due to the spa problems
