    Fantastic property for big groups! Plenty of space, large kitchen and fantastic rumpus room & dining. We had a great time here, great location for the snow, and what a brilliant fire pit! Would recommend wholeheartedly.

  • The property was good for large groups/youth who are not too fussy...

    The property was good for large groups/youth who are not too fussy or backpacker style. It has great shared spaces but all the lower beds were too short for an average male and only just fitted an average female, mattresses were too thin, bedding was cheap and synthetic - felt too pricy for our smaller group for what we got.

  • The lodge was a real special place to have friends and family...

    The lodge was a real special place to have friends and family stay for my birthday. With so many people (24) there was always something to be doing in either the massive lounge with the large fire and pool table or dining room with smaller fire and beautiful wooden tables. The facilities were top notch with enough ovens, fridges, toilets and showers for everyone to not feel like you were stepping on toes. The bedrooms were warm and comfy and the decor looked like something from a magazine!

  • A team of 22 women and it was BRILLIANT

    A team of 22 women and it was BRILLIANT. Loved the huge lounges where we could all gather together and the fires were awesome. Tons of hot water and warm beds although maybe the mattresses were a bit thin, but we still slept. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of places to dry wet clothes. Within walking distance to shops and was very quiet.
