Larnach Lodge Review

It's hard to beat panoramic sea views, 35 acres of gardens, the Larnach Castle next door, and luxury rooms of this small hotel. The Scottish Room has classic tartan bedcovers and curtains, heavy brass bedsteads, and a Robbie Burns rug; the Enchanted Forest Room has 19th-century William Morris wallpaper. Rooms with shared bathrooms in a converted 1870 Stables building are about half the regular rate. Entry to the castle and breakfast are included in the room rate.
