Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely modern and comfortable accommodation. Owners really friendly and welcoming. Wine, shortbread and milk left to welcome us which was really thoughtful. We had planned to visit Edinburgh Zoo to see the pandas and were gratefully informed by the owner that you have to book a slot beforehand. We were also able to use their wi-fi to do this but found you have to print off the booking to take with you. We managed to book and print off this at Stirling Library and had a very enjoyable day at the zoo. Stirling Castle is worth visiting and also Argylls Lodgings. A very enjoyable holiday which was made even better by the excellent accommodation. Would definitely recommend to others. June 2012.
  2. The lodge was superb, lots of welcoming things, tea, coffee, milk, shortbread and wine. Everything fresh and clean and cosy, air fresher, lovely hand wash. Games to play an excellent selection of dvd’s to suit anyone, magazines again to suit all. Can’t wait to go back! Also the owners are very friendly and welcoming. April 2012.
  3. You could not for better hospitality the cottage was perfect in every way, better than some top hotels that I have stayed in. A lovely welcome off the owner, I would recommend this cottage to anyone! March 2012.
  4. This cottage was excellent, clean modern every thing you would ever need was there. Luxury. March 2012.
  5. A superb property and a great location. Val was very helpful when we arrived. We will be back soon!! Oct 2011.
  6. The property really was amazing. Clean, modern and comfortable. Owners were very helpful. Internet access available in limited locations in lodge (i.e. by the window). Large range of DVD’s, quite recent ones too. Edinburgh has roadworks making driving difficult, Park and Ride is about £6 each, each way. Parking in Edinburgh is not much cheaper. Overall, it was a lovely place. The property is nicer than the photos lead you to believe. Oct 2011.

  11. Had a fantastic stay at Thistle Lodge. Good location for visiting different places such as Loch Lomond, Stirling, Falkirk Wheel, Glasgow and Edinburgh. The lodge is immaculate and we looked forward to going back each evening after our days out. Tastefully decorated throughout. Felt like a real "home from home". Our teenage son loved the choice of DVDs and we had a "film night" each evening. Val was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome and definitely went the extra mile providing things such as milk and coffee for when we arrived, along with something a little stronger for the adults! Having stayed at places where you have to pack your car with everything but the kitchen sink we were pleasantly surprised with the level of equipment etc provided. We would recommend this property very highly and look forward to returning in the future. Aug 2011.
