Lodges on Loch Ness
Reviewed April 30, 2012

These lodges are as they look on their website - luxury and well looked after. Very clean, lots of room, 3 double bedrooms, 3 ensuites, one with jacuzzi & shower and one with steam shower. The hot-tub is well maintained and the view is fantastic.

We really enjoyed our stay and it was cold and snowing at the time, the summer would be even better!

You would have to keep an eye on small children as it is a long drop over the decking although the fencing is safe around it. The lodges are located on quite a steep hill, but not a problem if you have your own car.

The views are fantastic, good nessie spotting location!

We have just ended a two week stay in Fairview Lodge, the only non timber Lodge on the park.
Fairview sits away from the other lodges in its own private space on the hillside, it has ample parking & level access but most importantly it has wonderful views of Loch Ness & the mountains beyond. The hot tub, outdoor seating area, 2 of the 3 bedrooms & the lounge, dining room & conservatory all face the Loch & allow you to watch the weather change throughout the day - the most dramatic of sights - could easily kill a fortnight weather watching alone!!
The Lodge itself is well furnished with lots of living space, the downstairs comprises a large kitchen / dining area, a separate Dining Room, Lounge, Sun Room, WC & Utility Room. Upstairs are three large bedrooms all with En-Suite Bathrooms. There are plenty of comfortable sofas to relax on & TV / DVD players in all the main rooms.
The kitchen is fitted to a high standard with all the usual appliances, dishwasher, washing machine & tumble dryer.
The house is heated with underfloor heating which is great on some of the colder mornings.
The Lodge makes a great base for exploring the rest of the highlands, we made trips to the Isle of Skye as well as Cromarty, Inverness, Edinburgh & the Cairngorms. The closest pub (20 mins away) the Dores Inn serves wonderful food right on the Loch shore (again - superb view!). Fort Augustus - 20 mins the opposite way - is a really busy little town at the end of the Loch - very friendly.
This really is a stunning location & even though we have had rain, sunshine & snow we have made use of all the facilities, including the BBQ & hot tub!
We have all had a great time & would definitely recommend Fairview Lodge to others - the owners made clear nothing was too much trouble and gave us an extremely friendly welcome - see you soon!!
PS - you MUST also have breakfast at the Foyers Waterfall cafe (5 mins up the hill via lovely wooded paths). There is a shop next door then you can literally pop across the road to the Foyers Falls - famous for a reason.

We were married on 1st October and my husband had booked lodges on loch ness as a surprise for the first week of our honeymoon.
What can I say, we had an amazing week, the location was stunning and the lodge was fantastic, very clean, spacious, lovely and warm and romantic.
We made full use of the hot tub outside during our stay and just enjoyed the peaceful location of the lodge. There are some nearby waterfalls which are worth the walk.
I would love to return and certainly hope to in the near future.
We shopped on the way to Loch Ness and mainly cooked on the BBQ all week as the weather was lovely. We did eat out once at the nearby Dores Inn which was also very nice.
We would like to thank the people that manage the lodges for looking after them so well.

We had booked a lodge for 4 nights over the new year and I have to say it was the best experience ever. Although we didnt see the owner when we arrived we managed to have short friendly chats the following days when we saw them.

When we first got into the lodge it was stunning, well decorated and very clean, there was even an xmas tree put up for the festive period (a nice touch). There were 2 bedrooms both with en suites and the size of the downstairs bathroom was unbelieveable. There is also a log effect gas fire which is nice and heats up the lodge very quickly, particularly makes the mezzanine seating area toasty!

The views from the lodges I believe are the best on this side of the loch, absolutely amazing. The hot tub outside was definately the best part of the stay, not even the rain or snow stopped us from jumping in. The area also offers some nice walks around foyers, there is the waterfalls at foyers which is nice to view and a good walk to take in the views.
The waterfall cafe a few minutes walk away from the lodges was also a nice place to relax after our walks with nice friendly staff and quick service.

The only gripe I would have is the charge for gas and electricity which we didnt realise before we got there. In all fairness we understood the charging for it and the rate they set is reasonable, it all falls down to whether you leave everything on all the time or not.

Overall I would say it is definately worth the money, friendly staff, friendly community and stunning views... unfortunately we did not see Nessie this time.

After a walking holiday in the highlands we booked this weekend in the quiet corner over loch ness in Foyers. I can not tell you how beautiful the location is -quite simply the best location I have been in my 52 years.
The welcome was exactly what I was looking for - polite susinct and just what I needed. the lodges are simply gorgeous - the hot tubs on the decking over look one of the best views of the loch you could hope for. Steam rooms and jacuzzis are in the lodge with showers that would blow your skin off!
Every appliance is top end and the furniture is ellegant and top notch. Clearly a lot of money was invested - when I come back I hope they upgrade the tellys that are in all the bedrooms to flat screen.
It was made clear to me that utilities are extra and that is exactly what I would expect - especailly when hot tubs and steam rooms must take lots to heat - I think some of the reviewers should be more green in their outlook.
thank you Calum and kate for your warm welcome - you trully have a gem we will see you again soon we hope

Room Tip: vist the Falls at foyers and take with you dish washer tablets -coffee etc and order your consumabl...

We stayed in one of the cabins for four nights and loved everything about the location. The cabins are beautiful with three bedrooms, two large full bathrooms and one half bath. There are two living rooms, one up stairs and one on the main floor and a well appointed kitchen-diner area which easily allowed all of the family to spread out for meals at the table. The included coffee maker was well used as we enjoyed a cup of java whilst looking out at the loch in the mornings.

We had concerns about reserving a cabin due to some poor reviews but after calling and speaking to the managers we were very comfortable our holiday would be a great time. The managers were extremely helpful and friendly and answered all of our questions and explained the policy of how the utilities are charged based on meter readings. After reserving the cabin we were given instructions as to where to pick up the keys. When we entered the cabin we found meter reading for the electricity and gas which we verfied to be accurate. The rates for utilities are consistent with what we pay at home.

The views from the cabin were spectacular with a panoramic view of Loch Ness for several miles in each direction. We didn't see Nessie but did give it our best shot in the evenings watching the sun set over the hills. There were decks on the first and second floors with a hot tub on the lower deck. The hot tub was serviced each day by the managers. The furniture in the cabin was of very good quality. There are three TVs, two with DVD players. The showers were amazing with the option to use multiple shower heads one time. There was a large two person jetted bath in the master en-suite and a steam room in the main bath.

While staying at the resort we hired horses from a local stable across the loch and went for a treck in the hills along some lovely quiet trails. We also drove to Fort William and rode the Jacobite Train which was used in the Harry Potter movies. There is a Tesco in Inverness and a few small shops in Fort Agustus both are about a 15-20 minute drive.

I would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: All of the cabins are private but the ones higher up have little better view of the Loch.

Lovely lodges,spectacular views.spoiled by money being taken from account unknowingly as a deposit to cover damages. This should be included in the initial costs and detailed on the website. Secondly as per other reviews £50 taken for utilities bills which was not detailed by management on the website or in any booking correspondence.The lodges are 20 miles from supermarkets in Inverness but were poorly stocked with essentials like toilet roll,washing up liquid,dishwasher tablets or even surface cloths.if we had known this in advance we would have been able to stock up.in addition not enough towels provided for 8 people. On a plus the views are spectacular, lodges are lovely,very spacious and comfortable. Hot tubs overlooking loch ness make the weekend. I definately would go back to the lodges but I think management need to be a bit more considerate.

Hello Nicola. Thank you for your review, I have also sent a private message request to you in the hope that I can help with the points you have mentioned on here. But if your not comfortable with that I hope I can help with this responce. Damages are only taken from group bookings and this is mentioned in out terms that will have been on your email confirmation. We do charge for gas and electric but this is charged at cost price to all our guests, did you perhaps have 2 lodges booked? again this is mentioned in the terms.
The lodges all have toilet rolls etc in them however they are "self catering" and will only have a starter amount ie each toilet will be stocked and starter tea & coffee packs will be left etc. We do offer to Tesco service to guests so that they can have a delivery to the lodge to save going to a supermarket en-route. If you have booked for 8 guests you lodge will have linen for 8 and if for some reason this was not the case you should of alerted our duty manager who would of made sure extra was provided. Indeed our duty manager will have seen to any issues you had, but I have spoke with her and it seems we have no record of any recent complaints of your nature? We try hard at Lodges On Loch Ness to ensure all our guests are happy with our service and can only improve with direct feed back. I hope we can speak soon so that I can fully answer any points you wish to discuss. Kind Regards
