We're frequent visitors to Portavadie, however this was our first time eating in the Lodge restaurant. The service was excellent: attentive but not over the top, and the food was really, really good. I had roasted pepper pasta and my hubby had a venison burger- both were delicious. We then headed over to the main marina to relax with a... More

Checking in is straight forward Valantine was very helpful and happy and gave us all the information we required. The room we had was a good size, modern and clean with large Windows which lets in...

I recently spent some time at the marina and it was fabulous! I can recommend the beauty spa which was a lovely treat. The whole experience was so relaxing with the beautiful surroundings, really helpful staff and fabulous accommodation at the lodge. I particularly loved the large, comfy sofas and fireplaces where I could get lost in my book. Can't... More

Had a two night stay in portavadie. Absolutely Fantastic. What a place! Can't really liken it to anything else. Unique really. Having walked around the complex we got a feel for the layout. Luxury apartments overlooking the marina. Berths for those sailing. Cottages / Self catering units. Bar/Restaurant overlooking the marina. Separate dinning area for those staying in the lodge....

We had the most fabulous 4 day stay in one of the luxury apartments overlooking the marina and we were made to feel so welcome by every member of staff we met. The apartment was stunning and so cosy, we arrived in heavy torrential rain and high winds in October but once we got inside the apartment you could barely... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, the lodge we were in (No 6) over looked the forest and Loch which was beautiful. The room was very specious.

Just back from a lovely relaxing two day Itson deal at the Lodge. I would definitely recommend to family and friends but it is more suited to adults at present given its fairly remote location and I would say a lack of things for kids to do, especially in the evening. However, for us it was ideal. It is a... More
