The owner were very welcoming when arrived told us everything we needed to know about the area.. lodge was spotless and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay... during the day we went lots of walks visited a castle and went to a beautiful beach only knew about it thanks to the owner... at night we relaxed in decking and hot tub was amazing... I would highly recommend this hoilday and have done to friends and family and we will be returning
Its all been said before. Lovely spacious, well furnished lodge in an amazing peaceful setting. Minutes walk from sandy lochside - ideal for the young dog in our party. Emo and Alison on hand with advise and suggestions on local area - we would never have found the lovely secluded sandy beach, or Oystercatcher bar serving fanatastic local catch, without them. The hot tub of course was the icing on the cake. Thankyou so much Emo and Alison/ We had a lovely time
This is a lovely, clean, fresh & well equipped lodge. The hot tub is amazing, it's got views down to the loch, very relaxing! We were impressed by the cleanliness of both the lodge & the hot tub, it was cleaned & ph tested mid way through our break. The owners live on site & are friendly, helpful & available if required without being intrusive. There's a nice walk to the beach from the lodge or a short drive & walk to Ostel Bay which is stunning! Our dogs loved it & so did we, we'd like to think we'll be back some time in the future!
The lodge is equipped with everything you could need, even complimentary mozzie spray. The area is quiet and peaceful. The hot tub is an added bonus. An ideal place for a few days exploring this scenic area. Shops are a distance away so make sure you have everything you need.
Amazing weekend away at Melldalloch.
We were warmly welcomed and settled in to the 3 bedroom lodge with fab hot tub.
Rooms very nice and clean and kitchen has great cooking facilities. We were really lucky with weather which was great the 3 days we were here.
Went a wee trip to the Secret coast beach which is nearby and very beautiful.
Totally recommend this place and we will be back.
We had no idea what to expect from our stay, other than knowing that Melldalloch lodges had great reviews. The only disappointment that we had is that we didn't book to stay for longer. The lodge is very spacious, superbly clean & modernly decorated. It has a really well equipped kitchen that meant we could easily self-cater when we needed to. The hot tub is fantastic and really added to our holiday (2 adults & 2 children - couldn't get the kids out of it!). The area itself is absolutely beautiful & very peaceful and it was just what we were after. There are some lovely walks, with a beach about 15 mins away. Nearby Portavadie Marina was a nice afternoon trip for a swim and evening meal. The owner was lovely and although we didn't need him, made us feel that we could trouble them at any time - small touches like leaving us a bottle of water (the tap water is from a natural spring so although perfectly safe, if you're not used to it you shouldn't really drink it unless boiled). We are already trying to figure out how we can plan another trip in the future!
