Everything about our stay at Douneside House was perfect. The room was lovely, the grounds beautiful, the food outstanding and the staff friendly and helpful. It made our wedding anniversary really special; we'll definitely be back again.

Douneside House was clearly understaffed during my 4-night stay in April with family. No one ever answered the phone at reception, and there was never anyone at the front desk. Just two or three team members seem to handle the restaurant AND the check-in/out, so...More
