    We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place for our break away. The lodge is perfect, well located, really clean and everything you may need has been thought of. Val gives you a lovely warm welcome and happy to help with anything. A lovely home from home to relax in and explore the area from.

    An beautifully maintained cottage located ideally to explore so much of Scotland. We were never short of anything to do and the owner ensured we were comfortable and was able to provide suggestions for trips out. Our son was able to enjoy the outside patio even on a rainy day. We would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return soon.

    What a wonderful place to stay. The cottage was very well equipped and so many little touches had been thought about. I'm relocating to Scotland so I was in the area to look for a flat and attend a job interview and Val was very helpful with advice on the trains to Edinburgh. I found my flat and I got my job and I would certainly recommend Thistle Lodge to my friends coming up to visit me.

    This property is not really a cottage more like a converted garage. It was overly well equipped but suffered badly from a shortage of windows (only one in the sitting room), poor knowledge of the heating system by the owner, creaky bed in the second bedroom resulting in my friend having to sleep on the floor in the sitting room.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I was very disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Thistle Lodge. I am even more disappointed and surprised to hear that your friend had to sleep on the floor of the sitting room because of the noise of the bed creaking. If you remember we did discuss this and I did offer to take a look at the bed and see if I could resolve the problem for you. You declined this offer, and also the offer of a fold down bed. As for the heating, yes I have a basic knowledge of the central heating system and if there is any problem I cannot fix, I would call out a heating engineer. I did not have to do for you as I thought I had managed to sort out the problem you had and not one I have come across before. Thistle Lodge, together with the main house is part of an old pump house for the reservoir, and not a converted garage. I don’t understand as to why you would say there is only one window; there are three Velux windows in the double bedroom and two in the single and the lodge is bright and airy. I do try to make sure every stay at Thistle Lodge is as enjoyable and relaxing as possible and I do make myself as available and approachable as I can. I always tell guests not to hesitate to contact me if there is a problem, which I wish you had done when you continued to be unhappy.

    This was the second time we have stayed here. Everything met all of our requirements. The lodge was very comfortable, and provided all of our needs. The lodge is situated in a very convenient place for site seeing and places of interest. Our hosts, Val and Dave were very hospitable and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definitely be returning in the future.

    Lovely helpful hosts. Lots of nice welcoming touches for your arrival and stay. Noise of macerator a little offputting. Could do with one or two more windows within the property.
