Alexandra Lodge
Ranked #2 of 6 Edzell B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 October 2014

We stayed at Alexandra Lodge prior to going to the Ryder Cup. Our room was comfortable and clean. The best part though was how welcome we felt from the owners, Jennifer and Nick. The breakfasts were outstanding - beautiful fresh fruit and wonderful Scottish full breakfast. Jennifer arranged golf at some of the local courses and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Edzell is a lovely village and Jennifer made bookings at very nice restaurants. We've been to Scotland on golf outings before but the experience at the Alexandra Lodge made this a really special trip.

Thank you so much for your kind words, it was a pleasure to have you stay prior to the Ryder Cup. There were many logistic challenges during your stay but thanks to the kind weather and your great company all challenges were met. I am pleased you enjoyed golfing on our local courses and hopefully you will return to visit other courses and ourselves in the future.

Stayed over night on 15th August 2014 and had a great welcome from Nick and Jen. Lovely house and breakfast was a real winner. So grateful that Nick could help us with some car problems encountered on the way up from South Wales and nothing was too much trouble.

Thanks Jennifer, I dont usually write reviews but had to with this wonderful night stay. Jennifer is friendly and bubbly, room is luxurious, breakfast is delightful, lots of beautiful fruit and a quality full breakfast. Edzell is a Jewel of a village. Restaurants serve great food.
A delight well done Jenifer, I will bring my badminton racket next time!

I stayed at the Alexandra Lodge for 2 nights and the whole experience was wonderful. Fabulous location absolutely beautiful surroundings inside and out! The hosts were very welcoming and friendly, they were tentative and always at hand if needed. The room was stunning and we had the best nights sleep, comfortable and relaxing. Breakfast was delicious, all quality products and lots to choose from; something for everyone. I would love to stay at this BnB again and would recommend it to anybody visiting that area to stay at Alexandra Lodge :)

I stayed at Alexandra Lodge for business and I must admit this has been the best place I have stayed on business. I have been to several hotels and the rooms are not always clean and the staff are never that friendly. However when you stay at Alexandra Lodge your check in is quick and easy. The staff you meet are so friendly and remember your name, which makes a difference. I would recommend this place to anyone going to Edzell and if I ever am up there for work again, will try and book into the Alexandra Lodge.

We have been here several times and it's always perfect. Friendly and warm welcome from excellent hosts, very comfortable room, quality breakfasts, relaxing atmosphere, nothing too much trouble and everything done to make you feel at home.

Room Tip: Book early to get a room, it's good so they are popular.

Having failed to find lodgings one evening in Montrose, we pressed on through the countryside until we chanced upon Edzell. The first two B&Bs we checked were full, but thankfully we were directed to the Alexandra Lodge. It was a wonderful! Our welcome was friendly, the lodge was very attractive, and the rooms were quite nice, though ours was a bit small. The proprietors, Nick & Jennifer, were most informative, and armed with their suggestions and the local maps they freely loaned us, we had the best day of exploring an area that we can remember. In fact, we were so reluctant to leave that we added a night to our stay.

The only (very minor) negatives were a lack of a table and luggage stand in our room, and the fact that there was no en suite bathroom.

Highly recommended!

I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. It was lucky that local Highland games were on to enhance the full Scottish experience (including some sharp rain showers). If you do return to Scotland it is usually best to book in advance to allow us to arrange the best room for you, our other rooms are en-suite but as you were aware the village was very busy that night and these rooms were already fully booked. We do have a guest sitting room which is equipped with a table, there was also a dressing table in your bedroom, a luggage rack was available if this had been requested. Our rooms are reasonably generous however I appreciate that the scale of Scottish homes perhaps differ to American ones and I am sorry that you found your room compact.

It was a pleasure to meet you all and I hope your son continues to enjoy his employment in Edinburgh and that you had a great onward stay.

Regards Jennifer
