Lovely location, only 1 min in the car to killin and only 2 mins in the car to the NTS car park for climbing the Munros in the lawers group.
We were visiting the are as a group of four. There was myself, my wife and another couple we know. Our stay was from the fri-mon but we headed down the road on Sunday as we all had work on the Monday.
Welcomed by Colin on arrival, really nice guy. Colin told as about local pubs and places to eat while we were there. He also put a few pounds in the meter to get the place warmed up and showed us around. Met the lovely chocolate lab while we were there, she was very friendly but was never running around or getting in your way.
The lodges were lovely. No more than we needed and no less. I managed to make tea for all of us using the kitchen equipment provided and found it to have most things you would need for cooking but if your planning on knocking up a gourmet meal you might need to take a few things off your own. The beds were comfy and made up for our arrival. The rooms are all a good size and gave us more space than we needed. The lodge was fairly clean (if you wanted to pick at things you could but your on holiday so why stress? And if these things tend to bother you then go pay a lot more and stay somewhere else). It had a tv on the wall most freeview channels and a DVD player. My only gripe would be I like an electric shower but its not the end of the world.
All in all had a pleasant stay, it's not the best place I've ever stayed and its certainly not the worst. Perfect if your looking for a base to go off and explore the area. I would happily stay here again next time I'm in area.
