My holiday in Ian's
Had another wonderful week in Ian's not being able to be there for over a year and a half. Cleanliness of the place on arrival could have been better but nothing I could not sort myself. Weather kind to us making it easier to get some walking done which are all easily accessible from the house. Views are amazing, love sitting on that balcony x x
wonderful as usual
Hi the only niggle was the shower - this was very very poor in fact i got wetter walking in Tobermoray , not good if you are coming in from the hills and need a warm shower
We had an enjoyable holiday at Ian's Lodge however this was due to the fantastic location of the lodge which is set in a beautiful part of the country.
We arrived in darkness and the lodge was quite difficult to find. Unfortunately the bed wasn't made up and there were no linens left for us to do it ourselves despite requesting this at the time of booking. To be fair this was rectified the next day when we were handed sheets to make the bed up ourselves but had to tumble dry them for a while due to dampness.
The lodge itself was not cleaned prior to our arrival and again I had to do this myself as my partner really, really, did not want to stay there. It took some persuasion on my part which kind of put a dampener on our stay, it's not something you envision having to do when you go for a break!
There was an overpowering smell in the kitchen which was difficult to identify, we suspect something may have died behind one of the kickboards in the kitchen, we didn't investigate because that would have been the end of our holiday!
The TV didn't work and the shower had no water pressure but thankfully there was a bath.
The location was fantastic and we saw some amazing wildlife during our trip which made up for the disappointment of the accommodation - just!
4 nights at Ian's Lodge
The house overall needs better cleaned as we found it all quite dirty, I thought it could also be in need of a freshen up . We spent 4 nights at £400.00 which is perhaps a bit overpriced for the time of the season and the standard of the accommodation. We have stayed at other lodges namely Comraich which is of a better standard.
It was such a lovely weekend and the accommodation was great. A wonderful place to go for a weekend and catch up with old friends.
