This is a value for money experience - clean and functional and we had an expectional power shower in our room - but the things that made it a extra special were the friendly/ cool staff and the fun atmosphere - we enjoyed just hanging out at Morgas.
Its just a shame that this good vibe went well into the early hours! and as the sound proofing is poor between floors.
I'm partial to a sing a long myself - but a campfire sing along that went on well into the early hours - (and not far from our bedroom window) and worse for wear people trying to get into their rooms who couldn't find their rooms or keys - kind of began to grate as I tried to get to sleep.
I do think Morgas Lodge should take a greater role in ensuring noise is kept to a minimum after 12.
All that said I still recommend Morags Lodge and as a base for the Highlands if you are doing lots of out door stuff - and are a very heavy sleeper.
