“Fantastic view, lovely cabins appalling service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2009

After seeing the lodges on the web we were really excited about this leg of our trip. Correspondence by INTERNET provoked the feeling that the accommodation was run by people who cared. I guess that was true until payment had been made.

Upon arrival in Inverness I phoned for directions - the conversation was abrupt to the point of being rude. We eventually drove the 12 miles to Foyers are located the lodge. No one was there to meet us.

The cabins themselves are very nice with a spectacular view though some distance from the Loch itself - don't be tricked by the photographs on the website.

There was no one to take a meter reading nor no details of the readings to be found anywhere. The final bill, charged after we left, with no supporting documents or even a courtesy email was a bit of a 'surprise'. This type of service is shoddy at best and not what you expect for 1200 per week accommodation.

Everything in the cottage appears to be 'for sale' with emphasis on the very over priced pottery items. Most things worked but there was little in the way of instructions on how to control the heating or other utilities.

The view and location are great the cabins are nice --- the service was abysmal

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2008

When I saw the website for these Lodges I thought 'WOW' they look great, a bit on the expensive side but I went ahead and booked for a week. On arrival there was no welcome and I had to phone a number for a key code to get our key from outside the front door. On first inspection the lodge looked really nice, nicely furnished and with all mod cons. The hot tub was nice and I loved the bathrooms. The location was good quiet near to so great walks and the waterfalls at Foyers. The bad points are, the TV's are hit and miss that they receive a digital signal, the TV upstairs in the main bedroom did not work for our intire stay, only one side of the cooker rings worked, no working batteries in the TV remote and the torch they left us and the bin in the bathroom was not even emptied on our arrival from the last people staying. The hot tub was nice but no privacy from other lodges. Overall a nice lodge, but attention to detail could of made it a better stay and it was very expensive and that does not include the gas and electricity you use. I must say that they did take delivery of a Tesco delivery for us and put it away (at a cost though) which made it easier for us. The pub at Dores about 8 miles towards Inverness serves great food if you want to eat out.

Great views, stunning location. Well equipped lodge although slightly let down by a few bits of poor workmanship/finishing (surround sound speakers not working, several internal doors that were impossible to shut including one between a bedroom and its ensuite bathroom!). Apart from the little niggles it was great to take advantage of their offer to receive and pack away a Tescos online delivery before we arrived so that the lodge was stocked with all our favourite things, meaning we could relax and enjoy it from the moment we arrived. We had a great time and will definitely be back!
