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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The cabin was just as we had wished. Real quilts an pillows. The kitchen was so well equipped I took my own knives but I cook for a living. We didn’t really use the TV or the sound system. But I did look and all fantastic from what I can see. WiFi!! Yes and very good. If you want a true experience of Scotland set your alarm for 6.55. Sit out side. You will know when you hear it. Great sound. The owners are so fantastic. Can’t do enough for you. They are amazing. Oh took peanut for the birds and squirrels. Watching the squirrels playing in the trees was totally amazing . Look up guys it’s amazing What you can see. Over all would I go back?? I’m trying to get holidays booked at work to get back. Close by oh my word walk you can never tire of. The town itself I did find a little limited for eating out. But hay I found the butcher and the bakery.. need nothing else.

The lodges are situated about 5 minutes walk from Ballater centre, plus 20 minutes from a number of national parks and Glens. The lodges are well equipped with all the usual facilities, but also a communal washing machine and dryer which is really welcome when you are staying for a week. The lodges are very quiet and have the added bonus of red squirrels on site!

Another year another lodge. Cannot fault anything about this place. 3 years we have been coming and 3 different lodges we've stayed in each spotlessly clean. Gordon always comes to check you've settled in and everything is ok. Ideal location for us coming with our dog aswell she loves all the woodland and river walks.

Recently returned from Invercauld lodges which are in a perfect location a 5 minute walk to Ballater . I stayed in a well equipped two bed with good wi fi and plenty of television channels, on returning home I realised I had left my electric toothbrush and Gordon posted it back to my home which was appreciated . Hope to return in the autumn.

This was a first visit to Invercauld Lodges Ballater for my wife and I along with our daughter and her 7 month old Labrador Oscar. We were very surprised what the lodges offered with regards to kitchen facilities everything was there for us. The bedrooms were clean and tidy and the manager Gordon, was very helpful, polite and professional upon our arrival explaining some of the local routes to/from town centre which was only a short distance away. The outside area of the lodge was ideal for Oscar to enjoy the very good weather under the shade of the trees. Having stayed in hotels in Ballater in the past we enjoyed our stay at Invercauld Lodges and will book again in the future. If you haven’t stayed in a lodge then please consider Invercauld Lodges Ballater for your stay - you won’t be disappointed.

Just back from a great week's break at Invercauld Lodges. Lovely setting and a great location for wandering in to Ballater and for exploring Deeside further. The lodge itself was well equipped, very clean really couldn't be faulted. First class.

We have stayed here many times and always enjoy our visit. The lodges are very comfortable and well equipped and nothing is too much trouble for the Manager. We look forward to our next visit. Look out for the red squirrels!

Excellent cabins only 5min walk from Ballatar. Clean and have everything you could want to make your stay comfortable . Wee red squirrel in the grounds is fun to watch. Gordon the owner is friendly and has everything in place for a safe visit. Ballatar has a really good family butchers with excellent meat on offer. Wouldn’t hesitated to recommend these cabins for a really great stay.
