“Exellent!!!”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

what an amazing holiday, we travelled with 2 kids under 10 and grandparents. The lodge was spotless and had everything you could ask for. It was very big enough that you didn't feel on top of one another. The kids loved the "Yard" they had so much space to play and they were very safe. We have stayed in Maple Lodge before just the two of us but we are so glad we brought the family back. Keith was very helpful and friendly. Oh and not to forget the chickens they were also very friendly. We will definitely be back.

“A great location”

We stayed here for 3 nights last week. Very comfortable accommodation with everything provided that you need. A warm welcome from the owners. A quiet location looking out over farmland just outside the town of Blairgowrie, giving easy access to the central part of Scotland.

“Fantastic ”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Me and my mum stayed at Maple Lodge for 2 nights, couldn't have had a more lovely time. Fantastic place with lovely owners. You can clearly see that they have / do put their heart and soul into all their cabins / lodges. Lovely fresh eggs for breakfast from their own hens as a welcome gift. Very thoughtful and tasted amazing! Thank you to both of you.
Will be back!

“Nice lodge, cabins less good”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed here with family for a week. We were six adults and two small children (two and 6 months). We were a bit disappointed that we were not all permitted to stay in the lodge as there are beds for six adults and the two infants could easily have slept in the main bedroom (as they often do when we are on holiday). However we were told that this was not permitted due to the insurance arrangements so my parents had to sleep in one of the cabins. The lodge itself is very nice (with the only exception being the rather old sofas) but the cabins could probably do with a renovation - and seemed a little expensive at half the price of the lodge. Otherwise, the owners were very helpful and friendly and the lodge was well equipped with a nice lawn at the front. We enjoyed our week there.

Management Response
12 Jul 2015
We at pondfauld Holidays were somewhat surprised to read of your disappointment, with regard to the occupancy issue, we would point out that occupancy levels are clearly stated at the time of enquiry and it is therefore up to the individual to decide whether to book.
In reference to the sofas in Fir tree, they are of an older style and are intended to be in keeping with the pine interior of the lodge.
We offer a variety of styles of accommodation, the majority being of a wooden construction, all cabins are less than 10 years old. Our pricing is extremely competitive within the Blairgowrie area and this is reflective of our bookings obtained through the Holiday lettings site.
Customer reviews are by definition a personal statement, however in this case we feel we must point out that the 3 star rating seems somewhat harsh and this does not reflect the constant rate of 5 stars from other guests.
As a small family run business it is our main concern to provide a good holiday experience, we are always on site to discuss any concerns you may have during your stay and we do feel sorry that you had some issues with your accommodation.

“What a fantastic weekend”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

After reading the great reviews and my husbands 60th birthday nearing I decided to invite all our family to get together at Fir Tree Lodge for a surprise weekend celebration.

We were not disappointed.
Mel couldn't have been more helpful. She was good enough to let our children arrive early to decorate the lodge with banners and balloons to make the surprise just perfect.

The lodge was spacious, spotless and in a beautiful setting with lots of extras.
We just wish we had booked for longer than a weekend and felt sad to leave when the time came.

We will definitely return in the future and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break.
