We were here for one week during July (from Ireland). The lodges are lovely with a balcony, very private, with woods all around and a stunning sliver of a view of the Loch. Beautiful walks nearby on the Great Glen. If you go for a visit to the potter up the road - don't get coffee, it is dishwater, dreadful... More

We have just returned from our mid-week break to Loch Ness and we were based at Ancarraig Lodges. The website was very honest and we had a good idea what we would be staying in but we were pleasantly surprised after reading a few bad reviews. In our oppinion the lodge (No. 7) that we stayed at was good, everything... More

Just spent two weeks in an Ancarraig Lodge and would neither return nor recommend. Dated and shabby with very basic equipment. Peeling paint, very thin glass in the windows which meant condensation on all the windows every morning. Fridge too small, with no freezer for self catering accommodation. Electric cooker which took forever to heat up and swallowed the electricity.... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry you were so disappointed with your accommodation. I was unaware of this and if you had let me know I could have moved you all to another lodge. You did advise me of the leaking kettle when you departed & that has been changed. Although the reception is only open for... More

We were a little worried after readin the bad comments on here but after speaking with Tracey the manager she assured us she would do all she could to make sure the lodge was warm and had a de-humidifier in place, after a 650 mile journey we arrived late in the evening and were so pleased with everything that had...

Delighted by our recent stay at the Ancarraig Lodges, just wish the stay had been longer (we shall be back!). We arrived quite late in the day and found that everything had been set up in anticipation of our arrival perfectly, with clear instructions on which lodge was ours and where to find it. The cabin was perfect and included... More

Lovely lodges, easily accessible, very clean and waterproof! Stayed for a week in one of the front lodges which had a restricted view, however, this did not disappoint. We had the dog so expected a run down lodge which is normal practice for rentals but this was not the case. Lovely clean bedding on all beds, bathroom and kitchen spotless... More

We had a great 4 nights stay at Ancarraig Lodges. Ideal for what we needed as we were out exploring from morning until night so really only needed the lodge for sleeping, washing and breakfast! Our 3 year old son loved exploring his holiday house and the surrounding area. The beds were comfortable and we all slept well (being six... More

We were fooled by a number of the positive reviews and booked an Ancarraig Lodge for 5 nights. Our lodge was damp. Our clothes were all damp after one night and smelt of mildew. You have to pay for the electricity via a pay meter and it cost a fortune to heat because of the gaps in the door and... More

Not really sure how to rate these lodges,as some aspects are very good and others not so. Good points are the wonderful location, and the price. Bad points are that the lodges are over 40 years old, and as they were built in the 70s, they have single glazing and very poor insulation. You have to pay for the electricity,... More

Stayed at Ancarraig Lodges between 14 and 18 April for the 2nd time and both times in Lodge 1. We took my mother-in-law (82) this time along with our son (7). Had another fantastic stay here and although we have been before, we STILL didn't get to do everything. Biking and walking on the menu this year, we walked quite... More
