We stayed in the Lodge for 2 nights on an Itison deal, having had Portavadie on our 'bucket list' for some time. All of our expectations were exceeded - comfort, amenity, location, service, quality of food, tranquility - and every member of staff we met was pleasant and friendly. I'd agree that the wifi availability is sketchy, but clearly the... More

My wife and I were very fortunate in winning a two night stay at Portavadie. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff were so receptive and helpful. The luxury apartment was superb and so well furnished and fitted. We also booked a couple of treatments which were excellent. You must incorporate this into your stay.... More

Spent 3 nights in a luxury townhouse apartment and we can say that it exceeded our expectations. Accommodation was superb, extremely spacious, well planned out and comfortable with the most spectacular view of the marina. We were happy just to sit on the huge balcony, sipping prosecco, watching the boats...bliss! The staff were helpful and friendly,food in both restaurants delicious... More

We recently spent a weekend here after reading the excellent reviews online. It is split into 2 buildings, one which is the Lodge and has the rooms, studios and Lodge Restaurant, then further round you come to the actual Marina with the Marina Restaurant and the luxury apartments. There is also a nice shop and spa here. Location: The location... More

Got an Itson deal to stay here for 2 nights with a dinner with B and B for under £100. Hotel is pristine, we had room 11, end of the block with a great balcony and views over the marina and surrounding countryside. Room was spotless and comfortable. Food in The Lodge Bar was good, if in my opinion slightly... More

A nice place but they seriously need to sort the wifi out. Saying 'there are too many people using it at the moment' just isn't going to cut it with the calibre of people they're presumably trying to attract. Another member of staff told me they were were having problems with it, not that it was overloaded. I couldn't get... More

Dear Swissruby, Thank you for taking the time following your stay with us last weekend. I am truly sorry that you were disturbed by over zealous children during your stay and that despite our requests to parents this would appear not to have made any difference. As you rightly point out our location is indeed an asset in terms of... More

Having stayed here a couple of times previously in the lodge and in a studio apartment and really loved it, I persuaded a couple of friends to do our 'Day Skipper' certificates with Fynesail who are based in the marina. What an amazing week we had, the first two nights we stayed in the marina at Portavadie and the facilities... More

Stopped here for lunch and what a surprise. The whole complex was lovely. The staff were amazing, so helpful and pleasant. One server in particular was very informative about the area and could not do enough to assist us . The lunch itself was outstanding, well presented and value for money. We called into the main office and the staff... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a luxury apartment which was stunning and had its own sauna. The balcony looked over the marina which was busy well maintained. We had drinks in both the main bar and at The lodge and prices were fair. Food in the marina restaurant was beautiful and reasonably priced for the quality. All the... More

Stayed in the Lodge. Fantastic family room with balcony overlooking the hills though others look out to the loch. Biggest double bed every and two comfortable looking bunk beds. Separate wc and bath with shower. Wifi terrible. You can eat in the Lodge kitchen or go down to the marina restaurant a few minutes walk away. Excellent continental breakfast and... More
