Hi Carol - sorry you had some issues with the wear and tear in the lodge after a busy holiday season. We are only 3 star and don't pretend to be 'fabulous' - we aim to offer a good value for money, comfortable and homely base for a family holiday in Oban. We do all our maintenance in the winter ready for next Spring, but with 22 properties it takes a while to get around them all. I am glad you enjoyed your meal in the Barn Bar - it is a great facility for Cologin residents.

“Lovely position and food but it lacks in comfort and it is not adviseable for asthmatics”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I think that the location is lovely, the food from the barn was good, but the chalets lacked maintanance!
The bathroom in our chalet was horrible: the soap holder was rusty and there was a bogey on the cort to switch on the light, The kitchen did have a cooker/microwave but was pretty basic and it wasn't well equipped. One of the cots they gave us was filthy. The laundry room was dirty, and it costed a fortune to do the laundry. The chalet smelled very bad and I had asthma attacks during our stay there, due to the dusty and old carpet in the house. Overall I found it not good when you have very young children, we were lucky the weather was good, so we didn't have to stay inside. The wifi was available upon payment, and for a couple of days there wasn't any signal. I wouldn't return and probably wouldn't recommend to friends.

I am so sorry you did not enjoy your lodge. However, I must point out that we keep 'pet free' lodges available all year for asthmatics and those suffering from allergies and it is shame that you did not request one on booking. However, the carpets in the lodge that you were in are just 2 seasons old and are pure wool so should last many more years! Thank you for your feedback regarding the rusty soap holder - this has now been replaced and I do hope it did not spoil your holiday.

COLOGIN proved to be exactly as it is described by the owners, an attractive venue offering good value in a quiet location a very short drive from delightful Oban.
These well equipped chalets offer comfort and relaxation in equal measure and the pleasant staff all around enhanced the experience the well stocked bar and well cooked fare in the Barn meant it was a great location to relax after a busy day exploring.
Warning!!........Oban is not the centre of the universe so if you want to live the fast life give it a miss and allow those that enjoy relaxation amongst amazing natural beauty to take your place.
Dont miss out on the fish stalls by McBrayne's office scallops in hot garlic butter hot smoked salmon and the freshest mussels ever

“Warm, welcoming, Clean, comfortable, well equipped lodges & Bar/Restaurant”

12 of us rented three lodges for a weekend kayaking trip in the area. In addition to the comfortable, clean and warm accommodation there is a drying room for kit. The drying room can do with being a bit bigger however there is restaurant kitchen extension in progress and this will be addressed.

The busy friendly Barn Bar/Restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices. Jim has a wealth of local knowledge and is more than willing to give tips, advice and recommendations, just ask.

I took my dog for an addition £10 which is worth it. There are plenty of walks on site.

Great location and really comfortable lodges and I would most certainly stay here again.

“Relaxing and Pleasant Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We booked this last minute as a quick getaway during the October Week and the price was very reasonable. We originally booked a smaller chalet with two single beds. We asked if we could get a double bed and the owners were very helpful. They provided us with a bigger chalet for only a small supplement. The owners emailed us with information and directions before our stay which were very helpful.
The chalet itself was lovely- new kitchen, sky TV and an electric fire which was great. Everything we needed was there. The chalet also had decking and a table outside. The bed was extremely comfortable- best nights sleep in ages.
The scenery around the area is wonderful and there are great walks to go on.
The Barn is a small pub at Cologin and the food there is good. The best part was the live Scottish music on a Sunday. The atmosphere is warm and friendly.
The Chalets are only 5 minutes drive from Oban town centre which is always busy with lots of things to do.
I felt the need to post a review on Trip Advisor as we had such a great time and some other reviews did not do this place justice.

“Adequate accomodation but lacked charm and comfort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Cologin is a good location, just three miles south of Oban. Our chalet was in dire need of refurbishment. The kitchen did have a cooker/microwave but was pretty basic and it wasn't well equipped. The beds weren't at all comfortable and some of the spare bedding we found in the cupboard was frankly pretty grotty. Parts of the bath/shower fitments were covered in rust - not good when you have very young children. The laundry room has to be seen to be believed - initially I thought I had wandered into the rubbish area. We did eat in the attached Barn restaurant and found it was pretty standard food on the expensive side. I'm still recovering from the advertised roasted veg linguine that came complete with kidney beans. There was a little playpark for kids which was handy. I think if you were a group of young pals, or a group of men off on a hunting trip like our near neighbours, these chalets are ideal. If you are a family with young kids who values comfort, perhaps not. That said, we were on a Groupon and paid £109 for four nights, so perhaps you really get what you pay for. On balance, I wouldn't return and probably wouldn't recommend to friends with families unless the chalets had something of a facelift.
