Ceilidh Cottages
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We chose Ceilidh Cottages because, amongst other things, the site had a) a swimming pool and b) 'full take out restaurant and shop'. In retrospect we should have been warned by the lack of photos on their website, but still... After a long drive to Mabou, we followed the directions along a bumpy lane to what initially looked like a scruffy trailer park. On realising that this was, in fact, Ceilidh Cottages, we decided to make the best of it and check in. Smelly reception area crawling with children, slightly brusque receptionist...still, we were there now and it was getting too late to go anywhere else so we checked in. After a quick inspection of the cold, Spartan 'cottage' we started off to find the swimming pool. Small, full of green scum, closed. Went to find the take out restaurant and shop. Closed. Went back to the reception and pointed out that several of the facilities which were offered on the website weren't, in fact, available. We asked for a reduction in compensation at which point the brusque receptionist became even more brusque. Didn't get a reduction, did get a cold, wouldn't recommend it.

We are seasonal trailer campers at this site but we also rented a cottage for our family. Everyone was more than pleased with the comfort and cleanliness, great staff too. This is a wonderful campground.

My family & I recently stayed at the Ceilidh Cottages in Mabou, our whole experience was wonderful from the time we arrived until we finished up. The staff were so kind, friendly & always courteous, our cottage was newly renovated and it was spotless clean! We have been coming to these cottages for many years with our children, now we are bringing the grandchildren. I would highly recommend this as a place to stop and spend sometime, there's so much to do in beautiful Mabou, can't say enough about this little family adventure.
