I recently stayed at lagganlia centre and I have to say I was a tad disappointed. I stayed in the main building in a room called 'Rothiemurchus' and it was filthy. when we arrived we found litter including: sweet wrappers, a used water bottle, used pairs of shoes in our room. we were left to pick the rubbish out of our beds and put it in the bin , and that's when we found their was no bin at all. we had to put all of our rubbish in the sanitary bin. To add to my disappointment their were a lot of stains on the wall and our curtains were hanging off. we also found loads of bugs on the window pane and on the walls of the room.
The en suite was a good facility to have but we didn't have any soap which shows bad quality. also , the walk-in shower lasted for roughly 5 seconds then it would turn off , so you constantly had to press the button. we found a few dust webs in the room and I found the beds incredibly uncomfortable. if you sat up on the bottom bunk you would bang your
head as the bunk beds are very cramped. Even though I finished my meal, i thought it tasted like school dinners. I would much rather make it myself.
the good part:
apart from the rubbish hospitality, the activities are amazing. their is a massive range of stuff to do in lagganlia such as Archery, Gorge Walking, Mountain Biking, Abseiling ,Climbing , Kayaking,Sailing and much , much more. The NightWalk is also a good activity and even better when you are blind folded. My Instructor , Gordon was very nice and encouraging , especially on the tree climbing activity , which was super scary. the thing to remember in tree climbing is that you are always attached to the harness and if you fall you wont hurt yourself!! one last thing , if you are going to book a trip to lagganlia, then go in a lodge,not main building.
overall I enjoyed lagganlia but their is definitely some room for improvement and for that reason I would rate the centre 3/5*.
hope this helped.
