We have been to this area a few times so we do know it fairly well, we stayed at the Hotel a couple of years back - that was great !! now to the lodges, I would say they could do with bringing into the 21st century (to much pine for me) but on the whole they are clean and...

Having not been since childhood, I was relatively excited to be invited for two nights in a large timeshare lodge at Craigendarroch. The lodge itself was in serious need of renovation, the kitchen and all the cabinetry in the accommodation was dated, worn and tatty. The family who invited us have had this lodge for more than 30 years admitted...

As a HH member I was sent an offer for a two/three night stay at a great rate, the catch (if you can call it that) is that you had to attend a short sales promotion during the stay. I was a little apprehensive as we had never been induced into this type of holiday by way of a sales...

I recently stayed here in a lodge with my girlfriend and our two young children. The bathrooms in the lodge have both been recently refurbished and are modern. Possibly the rest of the lodge could go with a little modernisation but never the less it was still lovely. The food in the bar and restaurant was lovely and extremely good...

Very nice visit here, we stayed in a suite initially on a promotional tour, the tour encouraged us to invest into the HGVC programme. Don't be put off by going along for the promotional tour as it isn't pressurised selling!! You can simply walk away no problem at all. Staff all very friendly. The restaurant is not big so certainly...

We had a lovely week in a 2 bedroom Lodge. It was a good size for 4 people. Master bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing area was downstairs with everything else upstairs. A shower room was upstairs and was also fairly large with a sauna. A washing machine was in a cupboard. Both bathrooms were recently refurbished and excellent....

Stayed in a lodge at Craigendarroch for one week. Very well equiped and spacious. The area is beautiful and particularly if you like walking there are plenty to choose from. Low level walks or hill walking and a number of Munros nearby. The Country Club is relaxing and good value for food and drinks if you don't want to dine...

We returned to our 2 bedroom lodge in early January. The snow was thick and the views from the balcony with 10 varieties of wild bird feeding from the birdseed we had laid on the table were superb. No red squirrel this year ' though. Inside the lodge, the bath in the 2nd bedroom had been replaced by a spacious...
