“Nice lodge, beautiful nature, kind and helpfull staff”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The lodges were very nice, clean and peaceful. Beautiful view from the lodge. Kind and helpfull staff. There are many things to see and do (like Loch Ness, Inverness, Road to the Isles, Glencoe, Rothiemurchus walks) in the surroundings of Spean Bridge, but a car is very handy. Everything was very good, just hope for a litlle bit of good weather.

Spean Bridge is located just 6 miles from the Nevis Range Mountain Resort and 10 miles from Fort William. It's great for travelling north to Loch Ness, east to the Cairngorms and west to Fort Wiliam, Skye, Glencoe, Oban, etc.

The lodges are cosy and clean and even offer wifi which is an added plus. For 2 people and a dog our lodge was perfect for a week's getaway. Ria was extremely friendly and welcoming.

Self catering is what it is. You cater for yourself which includes loo paper.
And if you forgot anything, there is a handy convenience store in Spean Bridge or a Morrisons in Fort Wiliam. The fish & chips at the hotel are very fresh and tasty.

We went at the height of the peak season and expected to pay a premium for this. Many other lodges charge over £140 more per week so the price is reasonable.

Definitely a place to remember.

Room Tip: 9 of the 12 chalets are south facing and great for the sunshine. The other 3 are west facing.

We had a great week's stay at Burnbank Lodges. The lodge was very clean, well-equipped and had a lovely river view. The owners were welcoming, happy to chat and offer advice. The location is ideal - peaceful and private whilst still walking distance from Spean Bridge. We left feeling relaxed and would love to return in the future.

Just returned from a 2 week stay at the Burnbank Lodges. Location was perfect for getting out and about exploring, setting secluded and peaceful and the accommodation had all you needed. We also took our dog who was more than welcome. Owners Ria and Phil who live on site are friendly and informative....so a great trip all round!

Just spent 8 days at Burnbank Lodges and had a wonderful time, the lodges are very comfortable and cosy with everything you need for self catering and were spotlessly clean.
The owners Phil and Ria were very friendly and helpful and we had several chats with them during our stay.
The woodland setting, with the River Spean running right by the lodges, is perfect and very tranquil, the location is also perfect being only a few hundred yards from the village with
a couple of Pubs, Restaurants a chip shop and very well stocked Spar Minimarket.
Fort William, Fort Augustus, Oban and a drive along the A82 following Loch Ness to Inverness,
stopping at Urquhart Castle on the way, were all easy daytrips from Spean Bridge.
Also worth a visit is the Nevis Range Activity Centre, 6 miles and Active Highs Watersports Centre, 15 miles from Spean Bridge.
We decided to have an action packed week, booking activities including River Kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, Hirewire assault course and the Gondola up Aonach Mor but our evenings were very relaxed in the Lodge sitting by the River with a few Beers.
We had a perfect week here and will be booking again soon.

Room Tip: Lodges 4, 5 and 6 are on River Bank, we stayed in 5.

Had 5 nights at burnbank and loved it . Stayed in lodge overlooking river and views were superb. Lodges were spotless and had everything you need . Spean Bridge is a lovely , quiet little village but has resturants , pubs , a shop and post office . Transport links are excellent with a train station and frequent bus services . The lodges are an ideal touring base for all the activities round about but are also a haven of tranquility and the perfect place to chill !! Many thanks Phil and Rhia great break

The lodge was perfect for us as a couple and were very impressed with the scenery from the lounge patio doors, the kitchen was kitted out with everything you could need and the lodge itself was cozy and comfy. The electric only cost us £9 for 3 nights and we thought this was very reasonable. Phil and Ria who own the lodges were lovely people and very welcoming. The lodges are in a great area only just down the road from Fort William and the Ben Nevis Skiing which was fantastic!
Will definately be going again!!
