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...

Stayed at Castlewood two years ago and had a great experience so we returned this week but the place has seriously gone downhill. For a start we went back because the kids had loved the onsite Soft Bear play centre. On arrival we realised it had gone. Building still there but actual softplay not there and neither is the nice...

Furniture falling apart - bunk bed unusable, dining table needs everything tightened up. Found dirty dishes in cupboards and things previous guests had left behind. Sleeps 8 but only enough room for 6 people to have a seat in the living room area. Also not enough cutlery for 8 people. Hot tub water also dirty. Nice location and with some... More

Stayed for a weekend with 7 friends for a birthday and thought the lodges were well equipped and beautifully furnished. The view was stunning especially first thing in the morning. The hot tub was a highlight and sat 8 comfortably. Would highly recommend it.

We spent a weekend here in November and stayed in Lodge 2 - a kerloch lodge. The lodge has three bedrooms, one double with en-suite shower room, one large twin and another smaller twin, a large bathroom with shower over the bath, and an open plan living/dining/kitchen area. There is a large decked area outside with a lovely big hot... More

We could not fault the lodge we stayed in (number 10) it was lovely and modern and was very spacious. The kitchen living and dining area was all open plan which made it feel... More
