As a time share we have had for over 20 years we feel that the luxury that was is slipping. e.g. not B & O now Phillips and Samsung. As you know I'm like real ales and am disappointed that bottle conditioned ales are not offered. Don't get me started on the electricity bill for the week £ 70.oo that's...

We booked a 2 bedroom lodge for three nights and it just wasn't long enough. The lodges are really spacious and my son (aged 11) opted to use the pull down bed in the living room which he thought was fantastic (pulled out of a unit so seemed pretty cool to him). The leisure facitlities are what you would expect...

Have visited Craigendarroch for over 30 years and still amazed at the quality of the lodges and facilities. First class and well done to all. We love Lodge 10. The new Keillor Restaurant has excellent value menu and atmosphere. xxx

Visited for a coffee stop. The lounge is very welcoming as are the staff. Nice coffee although cookie was a bit dry. Had a look round and the grounds seem lovely. Very nice swimming pool and would like to have stayed longer.

I really like this place. My family have a time share here and we have been coming up for years. The lodges are quite spacious and very cozily kitted out. They are also pretty well maintained. However they are a bit dated and would benefit from a bit of a spruce up! The grounds and surrounding countryside are absolutely spectacular....

The hotel over the years became dilapidated and lacked investment. Now however the resort has been rebranded as Hilton Grand Vacations with a subsequent investment of £1.5 million pounds. The accommodation is what you expect from a resort of this nature but what set it apart was the very reasonable charges for food and beverages. The staff were always very...

We stayed for a week and had a great time. The accommodation (in the hotel - not is a lodge) was very comfortable and the staff were courteous and efficient. The dining was good and the prices were less than expected. Driving around the local countryside is a dream, especially in the autumn. A visit to the local distillery is...

We have owned a timeshare lodge week here for 15 years and have always had an amazing holiday. The lodges are luxurious and comfortable, maintained to a high standard. The facilities on site include a wonderful spa, gym and pool, plus an excellent restaurant.

I spent a long week end in one of their suites. There was a spacious bedroom, a large living room including of a kitchen corner with microwave and fridge, and a balcony with table and chairs. The bathroom had both both shower and bath. Everything was nice and comfortable, specially the mattress and the bath robes! But the food was...
