Absolutely fantastic resort! Having a 5 month old we've decided on UK breaks for the next few years and this place did not disappoint! Everything you could need/want from a lodge break. Fantastic location, beautiful scenery! Carlos, couldn't be any more helpful if he tried, this guy is an utter gem to this resort and probably one of the main reasons people have such a fantastic stay! We stayed in the Glen Shee, which is probably the best lodge we have ever stayed in, with the added bonus of sky sports which my hubby was delighted at! We dined in the restaurant also, again the food was outstanding! Having a baby we had an early dinner meaning we got an early bird menu, delicious food but at a cheaper price! Brilliant!! Having a baby for once saved us money! :-) we also had a go at the thistle maze whilst here, highly recommend it! Unfortunately I was last to find my way out, but had a right good laugh trying, goodness knows how much fun actual children would have! :-)
All in all, I am writing this review for people who check before booking, if your considering a stay here, do not hesitate, go ahead and book, there is absolutely no way you'll be disappointed! Just fantastic!!!

We have just returned from a stay at ' Glen Prossan' Lodge with friends and what an amazing time we had. The Resort has all the amenities you could hope for and the staff are amazing in the Bar/Restaurant. I also have to say a HUGE thank you to Carlo for making sure I had my caffeine this morning by making me a gorgeous espresso.
The Lodge was huge, modern and extremely well equipped and what more could you ask for in opening the french doors to an amazing view.
Thank you again for an amazing stay - we will definitely be back.

Me and my partner booked these lodges for a weekend away and it was truly wonderful. We had to check in past 8 as we had to wait for my partner to finish work and they were understanding and made this no problem. The lodge was spacious and clean (we stayed in glen clova) with all the kitchen essentials and mod cons we could need. Wifi would have been nice but not essential :) we went on a walk around the ponds and had lunch in the restaurant which was tasty and welcoming. Overall great stay and will be returning :) recommend to everyone, large families or couples like us.

Stayed in the Boathouse, right on the water. Stunning house, stunning scenery. Staff very helpfull, polite and professional. Good value for money, just wish the check out time was later -didnt want to leave!! Only down side - floor boards in the boathouse creak like mad at night - due to the cold i guess, was so loud i couldnt sleep very well -i am a super light sleeper though dont let that put you off.

First class lodges, well equipped, spotless, child and dog friendly. Fully fitted, well equipped kitchens - if you want to cook a family meal. If not the restaurant is a stepping stone away and the food/choice/price is exceptional. Staff couldn't be more helpfully or friendly. Golf course free to lodge residents. It was my birthday during our stay and the staff went that extra mile to make it special. Cheers to the crew @ F of K.
