“Lovely location”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

My husband and I have just returned from a holiday at Arden Lodges which included our friends' wedding at The Cruin which was a wonderful occasion. The scenery at Loch Lomond is beautiful, and we found some lovely easy walks including one along the lakeside into Balloch which took about an hour. Ideally you do need a car to get around locally, but there is also a very reliable local taxi service. Glasgow is only about an hour away by train from Balloch and the fare is very reasonable. Our lodge was very clean and comfortable, with nice towels and toiletries supplied. Unfortunately my husband was taken ill during our stay and had to spend a night in hospital, but the manager and staff at The Cruin could not have been more helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would definitely like to return there in the future.

If you want away from it all then this is the place to go, although 3-4 mins in the car you are in the small town of Balloch with plenty of shops and take away's etc. The lodges are beside a woodland area on the banks of Loch Lomond which you can't actually see from the lodge but it is so peacefull and relaxing . They are very nicely decorated in new England style and have everything you need for self-catering such as microwave, fridge, hob and cooker, dishwasher, kettle and toaster. They do supply tea, coffee, sugar and milk incase you arrive with nothing which is rather nice of them. There is only a restaurant on site which is mainly for weddings however you can usually get breakfast or lunch, which I found slightly pricey, but if you have groceries then there is no need. It was a great base for us to go site seeing.

After 11 days in scotland and 7 bed and breaksfast and lodges experiences, arden lodge was by far my worst experience in the country. I will never come back again. There a lot of different good alternatives in the area.
