Overall slightly disappointing and probably not worth the money. Ideally located, rooms clean and service good. Breakfast had a good choice. Large, comfy room but a lot of space taken up with extra beds we didn't want. Annoyed the hot tub was not working.

We stayed at the resort for 2 nights while on a tour. The room was decent, clean, and the bed comfortable. The food however was another story. Dinner was included with our tour so it was a set menu. I had the fish, (hake), and my partner had the cannelloni. My dinner was stone cold and the pasta was tasteless....

Felt abit like a mini Center Parcs ! Pool area could do with a little more work (slide wise) Food was fine, evening meals where really nice, sometimes you were offered a dish on the menu that was a little bit "different", only grumble with eating was that we are quite late diners so sitting at 8:30 - 8:45 pm...

All the family were under the weather so booked for one night to escape the camping experience. The staff were more than helpful and saved the day as we really needed a comfy bed and hot shower! My 3 year old slept like a log.

An excellently located, very clean resort with very good facilities. Unfortunately not user friendly for people with walking difficulties due to wide spread location of amenities. Breakfast served in another building. No evening bar services in building where we stayed. Very poorly signposted to help you find the correct hotel.

We booked as a family of four with two small children (8 months old and nearly 3 years old). Was very disappointed in the kitchen facilities for what is surely a 3 bedroom family lodge - tiny kitchen space, no oven, tiny fridge and very few kitchen utensils (no chopping board, for instance). This would be fine for a couple...

Wonderful staff, great service and impeccable room. From check in to check out we were made to feel welcome. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. We had the spent the previous night in a wigwam near LochLomond so this was an absolute treat!
