My daughter arranged this overnight stay with spa facilities for my Christmas. The classic 'lodge' we stayed in was a hotel bedroom which was lovely and comfortable. The spa facilities were first class and they make great use of the views as you are right on loch fyne. My problem came with the position of the accommodation. When we checked...

The facilities at Portavadie are absolutely amazing. We were extremely lucky to get to stay in one of the luxury apartments and the room deals over the winter months are extremely good value for money. The properties are beautiful, the surroundings are stunning and the spa is the best of any I have been to (having stayed at the Old...

A nice view and remote location, but at every turn they should have done better. The food is pretty weak, and overpriced. The restaurant has nice glass windows, but the view is over the marina rather than any scenic view and all of the furniture screams IKEA. Cheap plastic tables and chairs and coloured led lighting everywhere. Some of the...

Dear Frank V, I am so sorry you did not enjoy the type of stay the team are renowned for delivering. Our WIFi is indeed not our unique selling point, albeit adequate for surfing but streaming content is outwith the ability of our internet currently but something we lobby hard to resolve as of course we recognise our guests expect...

Had an overnight for a birthday treat. Was very impressed with our lodge room, meal selection was adequate. Spa facilities were superb. All staff at various locations were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

My wife and I plus the two labs decided to get away for a peaceful break while our house had builders in. We opted for the couples retreat at Portavadie as it was a suitable place for the dogs and out of the way to enjoy some peace and quiet. The lodge is situated out of the grounds of Portavadie...

My wife and I visited for a joint birthday trip, staying in a lodge room. Room was lovely, nicely furnished and very clean. The resort is vast, and faces onto the marina. The Lodge is a 5 minute walk from the leisure centre, which has a stunning outdoor infinity pool and 2 jacuzzi pools. The infinity pool has stunning views...

Very nice and scenic spot and the accommodation is excellent quality. However - we booked after inspecting the menu online and were looking forward to enjoying the likes of locally-sourced mussels and Loch Fyne oysters. Unfortunately when we arrived the only menu available was the Lodge Kitchen and Bar Supper Menu rather than the better-quality Marina Restaurant Menu. I get...

We have stayed at Portavadie a number of times and each visit has offered great accommodation( we always stay at tighnamara as we love the lack of mobile phone signal), fantastic food and warm/ friendly staff. This review is specific to the spa experience as it is worth a mention of its own. The facility is brilliantly designed and construction...

We took the 8 hour journey to Portavadie on the 3rd January this year, for our mini moon. WOW! From the moment we arrived at the marina, we were welcomed and made to feel like nothing was too much trouble. Amazing couple's retreat overlooking a secluded bay, a ten minute walk to the spa with one of the most breath...

Absolutely loved this resort: it is well worth the long drive on windy roads to get here! Our apartment (a Luxury Holiday Apartment) was spacious, clean and well equipped: like a home from home.
