I had such a great stay at the Lodge for a weekend a few weeks ago. I arrived Friday evening with a warm welcome from Rebecca and a hot cup of tea in the lounge. Friday night, I shared the lodge with another couple who were finishing a holiday with Andy, but I was alone the following night. The weekend was a great retreat for me as I spent time hiking through the highlands around Boat of Garten and Andy and Rebecca were readily available to help me find routes and give me weather updates. Because it gets dark earlier now, I spent the evening back at the lodge getting to know their family, and wee little Greggor, their 5-year old son.
Each morning, Rebecca had a wonderful breakfast laid out. Even the free breakfast was filled with plenty of cereal, homemade bread, tea/coffee/juice, with the option to upgrade to a cooked meal.
While staying at the lodge, I really felt like I was at home, or at the home of a good friend. I never felt like another number/customer as you do at most larger hotels and hostels.
I would definitely recommend the Lodge and if I'm back in the area, I'm sure to stay here again.
