Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a gorgeous little site! The proprietors are friendly and the facilities are second to none. Camping pod heaven is situated in the middle of nowhere, down a little track, and doesn’t accommodate a ton of people, making it a peaceful place to stay, nestled in a pine forest close to Loch Ness. We had a camper van, which was well accommodated with an electric hook up, and although we didn’t experience the pods themselves, they looked fabulous. In the centre of the site is a fire pit, with optional use for a communal bbq. Plenty of walks from the site too, absolutely 10/10. Thank you!

Unfortunately, very disappointed. Pod smelt like a toilet. We have stayed in a lot of camping pods for similar prices and these one's are tiny and basic. You get plastic coated mattresses and the pod was really dark and dingy. When we asked for a refund we were told no, and not offered anything in compensation. On leaving someone told us that because the toilets are so far from the pods, people 'wee' in the pods at night. No one even came out to look at our pod and we were clearly disappointed. So disappointed in the service and the facilities.

Response from Ann Edwards, Owner at Camping Pod Heaven
Responded 6 May 2023
Yesterday, I found your review on TripAdvisor. I disputed your review with TripAdvisor they claim that they had completed their investigation (took 5 minutes to send a corporate standard response) and apparently your review complies with their submission guidelines. In December 2022, you wrote a review about Camping Pod Heaven. Our season ends in mid Oct so clearly you did not stay with us in December. You alleged that we were rude to you, but you mentioned that ‘no one came out to look at our pod’ so you saw no one and you claimed we were rude!! You also alleged that the pod smelt like a toilet and then made an unfounded allegation that people ‘wee’ in the pods. As a reviewer on Trip Adviser this information is now public, so in a Court of Law you would have to show that what you said was “substantially true”, or were you were merely expressing an honest opinion based on facts which existed at the time? Your review could cause or is likely to cause serious financial loss to our small family-owned business and we may have to take this matter further. We believe you have breached TripAdvisor's terms of use. It clearly states that anyone submitting to their site agrees not to post libelous or defamatory material. Apparently, TripAdvisor take any allegations of defamatory content on their site very seriously, for which I will take this matter further and seek to get your review taken off. This is a malicious review based on unfounded allegations.

We stayed for a night in a pod - 2 adults and 2 children. The pod was clean and basic but that's what I expected for £70. The pod came with thin mattresses / ground mats (ours were mounted on a wooden frame although not all pods have this, a heater (which we didn't use), a light and a socket. We arrived at 8pm and left the next day. Was perfect for a little adventure with the kids. They played on a rope swing and in a big bit of tubing - simple but they had a good time just running about in the little woodland bit next to the pods for a couple of hours! The fire pit wasn't in use due to wildfire risk in recent warm weather - completely understandable although in different circumstances would have been a nice touch as we had hoped to do some toasted marshmallows on the fire! Shower & toilet facility was in good clean condition - no complaints. There are no cooking facilities so take your own camping stove if you plan to cook. We are out before we left so didn't expect to cook. They serve hot beverages at the reception in the morning but this wasn't on offer as we were checking out - no big deal but would have been nice. All in all I'd recommend for a couple of nights - cheap and cheerful and basically just camping without the tent! If you're looking for luxurious comfortable beds then I'd say this isn't the place for you, but if your expectations are as ours we're (camping without the tent!!) then you'll be very satisfied.

We got lucky that it wasn't raining because you can only cook food outside at a little table since it's the only socket, we got told there was enough space for 4 people but one of us had to sleep in the car and it was more comfortable than the in the pod , the photos show bed frames but we didn't get any bed frames in our pod except the mattresses on the floor. The water in the showers were boiling hot and if someone else were to use the other showers your water would stop running. There is nothing to do for kids apart from a swing that is on a dodgy tree branch and is a complete danger hazard. The owner wasn't that nice and shouted at the kids for being too loud which is understandable but she also said to go back to their pods and "stay silent". Would not recommend unless there's only two people and if you have a busy schedule and won't spend much time on the site.

I was here in the October holidays for 2nights with my husband and daughter. We arrived at 4pm to no member of staff from the site, i was told they had left half hour ago. Pod was adequate but was only thin mattresses on the floor. there was no kettle or fridge in the pod. i had sent an email to Camping Pod Heaven to ask about cooking facilities but had no reply sent another one hoping they would reply before we arrived still nothing. so we found out when se settled in that there was no kitchen on site for heating up meals or making toast, the food we had made was now spoiled and we had to go out for dinner spending £50. If they had replied to my email saying sorry we have no kitchen but please bring camping equipment the trip would of been perfect. I'm disappointed at the lack of communication from Camping Pod Heaven. we didn't see any member of staff the whole 2 days we were there. i have email Camping Pod Heaven with a complaint but have not heard back. Location is perfect and the toilet block was maintained while we were there.

I arrived Wednesday and left yesterday. I'm still yet to check in and check out. There is no owners/staff anywhere. I had requested a cot for my child before arrival and it wasn't there. Had to phone the number that was on a board in the reception window to re request this. A woman came down with it, no introduction to herself or the pod site, nothing. Just away back to her house in her car. Understand in covid times we are keeping our distance, but that was not very professional. Would have been alot better if distance was kept, introduction to owners and the pod site, where to find things etc. Another family on the site ended up letting me know what and where everything was. It is extremely clean. Pod was spotless. Toilet block kept to a very high standard. Just a shame the communication side was let down. WiFi DOES NOT work. Had to travel down the road to a lay by for data to find things around the area.

We were walking the Great Glen Way and wanted to break the longish stretch from Drumnadrochit to Inverness so we booke a Pod for the night of 19th September 2019. As we were not carrying camping stuff or food Jana the manager kindly bought us some provisions and we were able to cook them in the microwave for supper. We also had to hire sleeping packs - sheets - duvet - pillow and towels. In addition, we hired a low power kettle. It all worked very well. The Pod was entirely comfortable with a double bed and two singles, as well as a lamp and two heaters. The best bit was the ablution block which is new and has the best showers in Europe. Special thanks to Jana for her warm welcome and general helpfulness. It must be said that this was an expensive option and the total cost of £80+ was more than we paid for the best 5 star B&B and that comes with a slap-up cooked breakfast. I suggest the owners put a Hikers deal together to encourage more of the very many walkers to stop there. We loved Camping Pod Heaven and highly recommend it.
