In this guesthouse there are very clean and comfortable rooms. The beds are sooo comfy. I liked it a lot. The atmosphere was really great. In the evening we had to fill in a form about what we want to have for breakfast. It was really correct. The breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend this place.

We had a lovely stay at the woodlands. We were welcomed on arrival and shown to our lovely room called iona. The layout was great and modern. The hospitality was great and the breakfast was lovely. The only thing I would suggest is to grit the decking as it gets very slippy when it's cold and icy. Would definitely stay... More

We stayed at the top room which I believe was called skye. We had been walking on the Great glen way. It was ideal for what we wanted. Good breakfast. I would recommend this stay for those in the area or just passing through.
