“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Excellent cottage, beautifully kept and spacious, has everything we needed including broadband. We traveled with our 21month old and found the cottage very child-friendly. Love the welcome basket too. Would definitely return if we visit the area again!

“Fabulous Moray Cottage”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The Lodge at Duffus was an excellent base for us to visit our favourite places and friends in Moray.As regular visitors to the area for the last 5 years we found the Lodge to be comfortable and homely with all the mod cons we could ask for.The welcome pack of local goodies was an added touch and saved having to run to the shops when we first arrived. Perfect for a small family and stunning surrounding area.We were lucky to have gorgeous weather and so made use of the many fabulous beaches nearby.

“Super Moray Cottage”
Reviewed May 16, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had travelled across from the West Coast of Scotland and Duffus Lodge was a wonderful find. It had for us, everything that we wanted. It was very well appointed in a comfortably traditional way. Comfy bed, comfy living accomadation and the layout kept the spirit of the buildings original raison d'etre. We arrived with our collie dog and his reaction was interesting. He came in to the sitting room and immidiately relaxed as if to say mmmm I like this and was at home for the rest of his stay there.
The cottage owners had left a really nice, useful welcome pack of food and goodies which were much appreciated. In addition they were solicitous about our comfort without ever being intrusive.
The cottage is very well located for exploring Moray, in particular close, to Duffus castle and within easy travelling distance of beaches, distilleries and all the major towns of Moray, as well as being only about an hours travel to Aviemore and the Cairngorms (if you them with Ben Rinnes much closer).

Management Response
Mar 27, 2013
Many thanks for taking the time to review our property. Unfortunately there is little we can do regarding the size of the bathroom. It is small but perfectly formed with a bath (shower over bath), sink and toilet. I do take cleanliness very seriously and only getting 3 out of 5 for the bathroom is disappointing. I shall contact our guest directly to find out more details and will strive to ensure that all levels of cleanliness are back up to 5 out of 5 as rated in previous reviews.
