“Peace perfect peace!!!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 boys aged 12 and 9 at the start of April, as soon as we arrived we knew we'd made a great choice. The views are breath taking and can change every minute. Staff are so helpful, and our accommodation was amazing. Immaculately clean, comfortable and very cosy!! Loads to do or the perfect place to do nothing! Any spare minute our boys had they were in the hot tub!! Can't wait to visit this place again .

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your recent break at Strathyre. It sounds like everybody in the family enjoyed their break, and the hot tub was clearly a hit. We hope you will be back to stay again before too long.

Had a great weekend at the log cabins in Strathyre. We had a silver cabin which included a hot tub. The cabin was clean, cosy & modern. The hot tub was cleaned daily which was great as we were using it in the rain most nights!
Would highly recommend to couples, families or groups!

We have had a dreadful experience at Forest Holiday Cabins. Upon arrival we encountered a freezing cold damp cottage. There was no welcome manual, to advise us of operating instructions for any equiptment, however worsdt was stui;ll to come when rain water was running down the living room wall in the proximity of the TV electrics. There was also gale force winds coming in the Patio glass dorrs which did not close tightly. We went up to reception to make them aware of our problems and was advised the Manager would come up to our cabin. She came with sodden wet logs which would not light they were so wet. She gave us a bucket abd dirty towels to put down mop up the water, and also towels to stuff in the drafty door....Oh and the hot tub was freezing cold, the manager was aware of this and the only filled it that morning, she said it should be ready in 4-5 hiours ie 1am.....Never again, dreadful customer services. I had to badger them to responde. We have complained to and received this response. - Thank you for your email concerning your stay at Strathyre, it is always disappointing when we hear that the cabin in which you stayed did not meet your expectations, I have spoken at length to the Manager on site regarding your comments. Before you arrived the Cabin should normally be checked to ensure that the cabin manual was there for you, giving you information about where everything was within the cabin, they would also check items such as the remote, the starter pack for the log burner, and that all the kitchen items were clean and ready for use, it would seem that the check was missed or not carried out as thoroughly as it should have been by staff on site. The site were aware of the leak which was from the flashing, and they were awaiting a suitable dry day spell to make the repair. There was an assessment made on site, and there was no danger of risk identified to the electrics, otherwise the cabin would have been removed from sale.

Thank you for your review, I am sorry that your experience with us was less than satisfactory on this occasion. Along with our response to your complaint we refunded a substantial part of the cost of your holiday as compensation for the problems you encountered. All the repairs that were needed have now been carried out and our procedures have been reviewed to ensure that we don’t miss that crucial cabin check after the cleaners have finished and before our guests arrive.

Even though we arrived early, as our lodge was ready we were able to get access to it as soon as we'd arrived. The staff couldn't have been more helpful even carrying the heavy bag of logs up to our lodge for me!
The hot tub is an indulgent luxury in the well kitted out lodges- highly recommend the Golden Oak lodges- and the log fires make for a very cosy atmosphere on even the coldest nights.
Only downside for me is no WiFi (although I know a lot of people would enjoy being disconnected for a few days!) and the paths to the lodges got really muddy in the Scottish rain so don't forget to pack your wellies!
Highly recommended and would definitely stay again.

This was our 2nd forest holidays location (Argyll 1st) and can't recommend highly enough. A 5* hotel it isn't; brilliant, clean, well equipped accommodation, helpful staff, etc etc it definitely is. BEAUTIFUL scenery and tons to do. Fab cabins & well maintained hot tub.

Just back from a four night break at Strathyre and would return for sure. The cabins are extremely comfortable, well equipped, good location, and all seem to have fabulous views of the loch. The staff that we had to deal with were all very friendly and helpful. Nothing beats sitting in a hot tub admiring breath taking Scottish scenery.

Highly recommended for anybody wanting a relaxing break.

Room Tip: Golden oak cabins are fantastic.
