“Fantastic Lodges”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2010

We were lucky enough to spend a week at these lodges at the beginning of July.

What can I say that other reviews haven’t already said? These lodges are great – higher spec than my house! The lodges are exactly as it said on their website – leather sofas, TV with some digital channels, dishwasher, (our lodge even had a washing machine/tumble dryer!) – basically all mod cons.

We were able to sit in the lodge watching the boats go up and down the canal (and if the weather had been better we would have been able to sit outside on the decking).There is also a small play area where the kids can burn off some of their excess energy.

All through our stay we were made more than welcome by Frank the site manager who was always about in case of need but never intrusive. Frank also advised us on the best places to visit (even before we arrived he had sent us some brochures on golf and horse-riding so that we could plan our days in advance).

We will definitely be back!

We have just come back from a mid week break at Lochaber Lodges. We were looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy some beautiful scenery and this place surpassed all expectations.
The lodges are showroom quality with all the extras to make you exceedingly comfortable, but it’s the views that really make this holiday special. From your balcony you look out over the Caledonian Canal, beyond that a beautiful forest and on the horizon is the awe-inspiring snow capped Ben Nevis. I can’t express enough how special this place is.
There are 8 lodges in total each positioned so that your view is private. The site is very peaceful and the quaint children’s play area is positioned out of view and earshot of the lodges’ balconies. The nearest shops and restaurants are a ten minute drive which suited us as we wanted to be away from crowds so be prepared to stock up on your way in.
One thing that made the holiday for us was the kindness and service of Frank, the site manger. We had major car problems and Frank was on hand to help and even offered to drive us around. He couldn’t have been more accommodating.
We love Lochaber Lodges and will definitely be back soon. If you’re lucky enough to be staying there soon please give our regards to Frank.

We Stayed at these stunning lodges for the Easter Weekend and I was so impressed I have already booked a second holiday here in Sept.

The place is truly outstanding, and provides a perfect retreat for a luxurious, relaxing getaway. The owners are very friendly and gave us a warm welcome, and stressed that if we needed anything during our stay we would call.

The lodges themselves are fantastic and are full of modern equipment. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need including a dishwasher, fridge,freezer, microwave.and full size oven and hob. Infact I would go as far as saying it was better than my own kitchen at home. The living area was very roomy, with 2 leather sofas,modern glass coffee table and large flatscreen LCD TV with built in DVD player. There is also free wireless internet access.

We booked a three bedroom lodge and each one of the bedrooms were lovely. Tastefully decorated in modern contemporary style with really comfy beds too. The cabins all have central heating so no problems even in the cold weather.

The views from the lodge itself are breathtaking, and there are many different walks or for the more energetic perhaps a bit of mountain climbing as Ben Nevis is right at your doorstep.

Overall, this is the perfect place to have a lovely, relaxing holiday or romantic break and I just cant wait to go back.
