Fantastic. Will definitely return one day soon.
Lodge a bit tired looking in bathroom areas but clean
3 adult males and 3 boys 9, 11 & 13. All loved the cabin and holiday. Place was great for the dog as well. Never cought anything fishing in the salt water loch apart from crabs over 2 days so we drove to fresh water lochs instead. Stayed in the Golden oak 3. Amazing spot on the very front of the loch with amazing views while sitting in the hot tub. Spot was also good for taking the dog straight out. My only gripe is that we could not park the car directly at the door which would have been helpfull for unload and loading of the cars so for that reason took it down to a 9/10 from 10/10. Some properties have parking at the doir but I think you would lose best location on the loch front so would take the location. We were camping the week before and had quite a lot of stuff. Once inside though the place was perfect, overlooking loch and mountains. Staff helpfull and accomodated us with a larger table during a meal and quiz night for my Nephew's birthday after a day of fishing. We ordered a bit late so had missed the cut off time for ordering food by quite a bit and they still made us some pizza and chips to take away, thanks! We went round the wooded areas and a couple of the bike paths. These are great for everyone whether cycle, walk, jog or take dog out walking along river etc. Stunning! Recommend this place for people who want to relax, with or without pets, families who like biking, walking, jogging etc. Fishing was not so great and needed to travel a bit. Kids were "bored" sometimes saying not much to do. The park play area is for smaller children and the wooded area was good for bikes but for playing around we were getting eaten alive by the midgies so was a bit frustrating. Midgies not a problem when in the hot tub.
Great lodge very spacious , great showers , plenty room for 4 adults 1 teenager and 1 child , plenty towels etc

Superb break, staff fantastic
Spent time in lodges as a family and we all had a fab time helped by the beautiful surroundings and sunny weather
Cabin was fantastic comfy cozy and very stylish x
We had a fab short break. Hot tub cleaned and checked every day. Staff very very helpful.
Love clean flat. Well stocked
We have stayed here twice now. We had a lovely time but we would have preferred to have had a cabin with a wood burner. We didn't realise that we wouldn't have one and came prepared but were disappointed that our Golden Oak didn't gave one this time.
Fantastic location. First class accommodation.
Would've been 10s across the board had there been wifi available in our lodge. Although it was probably a good thing it wasn't there, it kept us away from emails etc
Had a great weekend at these lodges. Very relaxing and quiet. All staff were extremely helpful, apart from a member of staff working in the cafe on the Saturday night. She was very rude to myself and my family, we only wanted a takeaway coffee but it was so much hassle for this member of staff as they were closing in 15mins. She was very rude. Overall we had a great time
Despite the weather we had a great time excellent accommodation with everything u could need fir a lazy weekend away luxuriating in a hot tub. Staff helpful but unobtrusive they were there if u needed anything
Our second stay and was very relaxing great views nice walks the only things wrong were TV remote was broken and only worked when it wanted needs replacing and the oven did not work but these small things did not spoil what was a great break
Excellent lodge. Staff were very thorough and very helpful and friendly
Had a great time and everything was amazing! The only downfall was the dishwasher didn't seem to actually clean the dishes so ended up having to do everything by hand! Other than that everything was perfect, beautiful surroundings especially whilst in the hot tub!!
Great cabins. Great location. 100% recommend. Booking up for a return visit soon!
