Had the most fantastic time here for my hen party. The lodges were a fantastic size and well looked after. The location is far enough away from Aberdeen and Banchory to feel like you are a million miles away! And the setting is beautiful.

We stayed here in Aug as a party of 16 for my sisters hen party. We had booked a 6 bed and 8 bed lodge but as they didnt have 2 together nearby they gave us 2 8 beds for no extra charge which we were delighted about!! On arrival we couldn't see anyone in charge and no phone signal... More

We were a group of 18 booking three lodges for a combination of long weekend and a week stay. All three properties were clean, well presented and the welcome pack, much appreciated. The hot tubs were fantastic and enjoyed by all the group. The views were stunning when the fog cleared!!!! We will hopefully be back soon!!

Form the moment I walked in to the lodge it was so warm, we had a great weekend away with family and friends. The lodge is very modern it was very clean and had everything you need for a relaxing trip away. The owner's were very helpful and very nice. The hot tubs were great, going for a soothing soak...

Had a long weekend booked for 6 people. Reading reviews was a bit suspicious. Arrived on site and had trouble finding the reception. Went into main building but no one there then saw someone going into their lodge and asked them where the reception was. They pointed out it was the first lodge. Then noticed the smallest sign on the... More

Lovely lodges in a beautiful setting. Huge hot tub, not very private but didnt bother us. Nice welcome pack upon arrival, lodges clean and well mantained. a bit tired in places but nothing major. Plenty of country walks and cycle tracks close to the lodges. 10minute drive to Banchory which has lovely eating places and cafes. Only problem was no... More

Lodge 7 was dirty and so was the hot tub. Manager and Hoseseasons clearly do not care less. My complaint has been ignored. Soft play centre and cafe not even there anymore even though they were advertised at the time of booking.

Similar to the reviews below our holiday was spoiled by the fact that the advertised soft play, restaurant/cafe etc is now no longer there, this was advertised on both hoeseasons and the lodges own website and to further add insult as part of the welcome info pack your handed a leaflet telling you about the above facilities being on site...
