Firstly I must state how shocked I am that this site has any bad reviews at all. We booked a lodge for 8 people for a 3 night break (just back today) and as always a little cautious of reading the few bad reviews on here. But can I just put you all at ease... Firstly the lodge was immaculate... More

I organised our stay direct with these people and they were very helpful😊. I asked for a later check out as my mum has severe breathing difficulties and they said 11 would be the latest. lodge looked great although it is more of an oversized caravan. which isn't a problem but i had previously stayed in a lodge and expected...

Castle c, Owner at Castlewood Leisure Club & Holiday Park, responded to this review

very disappointed with this response due to the way we went out of our way to help this family with a cheap last minute summer break with her ill mother and their dog in which they failed to keep on a lead leaving it to bound onto other customers who were not happy. The only comment made on her breaking... More

lovely setting and very peaceful. However disappointed that there were no mattress or pillow protectors on the beds. Hot tub would be better if it had a gazebo covering it. Living area was very spacious.

Had the most fantastic time here for my hen party. The lodges were a fantastic size and well looked after. The location is far enough away from Aberdeen and Banchory to feel like you are a million miles away! And the setting is beautiful.

We were a group of 18 booking three lodges for a combination of long weekend and a week stay. All three properties were clean, well presented and the welcome pack, much appreciated. The hot tubs were fantastic and enjoyed by all the group. The views were stunning when the fog cleared!!!! We will hopefully be back soon!!

Had a long weekend booked for 6 people. Reading reviews was a bit suspicious. Arrived on site and had trouble finding the reception. Went into main building but no one there then saw someone going into their lodge and asked them where the reception was. They pointed out it was the first lodge. Then noticed the smallest sign on the... More
