  • "The cottage was clean and comfortable."

    The welcome pack was a nice addition. Unfortunately the pool was closed for 2 days which was disappointing

  • "All to the good, although there is a problem with the door to the outside seating area."

    Otherwise just a couple of small things - I must bring a knife sharpener next time, and I can't use a frying pan that is not non-stick. Very peaceful location. We enjoyed ourselves.

  • "Lovely lodge in beautiful setting, very clean on arrival and well equipped (although a chopping board would be useful)."

    The location is beautiful but quite remote if you have children and bad weather it could be quite limiting, thankfully we had lovely weather and explored some lovely country parks and beaches.

  • "The cottage was ideal for our break, well equipped and comfortable."

    The swimming pool in the leisure complex was a welcome addition especially the children. The two ladies on the reception desk were always cheerful, very helpful and pleasant to talk to. Two niggles with regard to the accommodation, the internal doors squeaked loudly and need a drop of oil and there is a constant tapping noise emanating from the water meter in the cupboard under the sink.

  • "The lodge was really nice."

    Spacious and comfortable . We took our 3 grandchildren ( 11, 13, 15 ) with us. They loved it. Yes the carpet needed cleaning, however, this didn't influence us to be negative. I know some reviews were very negative. Don't let this put you off going. Thoroughly enjoyed been there. The pool was great. Couldn't get the kids out of it. All in all a wonderful holiday. And the park itself was really well looked after. The staff were lovely.

    Lovely quiet location. Very nice linen and towel. Well equipped kitchen. Bathrooms could do with a little TLC. Settee and armchairs need replacing and carpets a good clean.

  • "Lovely property well maintained."

    Could do with a larger duvet the one we had hardly had any overhang just a minor thing. Kitchen is well stocked although there was no frying pan and a chopping board is really needed had to use a plate to chop items. Overall the property is very comfortable. .

  • "No information on how to use water and heat water up."

    Not useful when trying to shower family of 6 and got cold water.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. The owner is aware of the hot water issues, this is due to the age of the heating system and the small hot water tank, this will be rectified when there is a break in bookings. There is a boost button located in the property and the staff at reception will assist with any hot water issues. As a reminder there is an onsite swimming pool with full shower facilities on site if needed. Property Owner

  • "I have already sent the customer relations team a long list of my comments which no one responded to it is buy far the worst lodge holiday I have had in Scotland the countryside is beautiful sadly the lodge is beyond disappointing we came home a day early."

    On Sunday night I was really upset to hear my granddaughter ask to go home. On all our other holiday"s it"s the opposite. At best it's total misrepresentation of these premises at its worst it's fraud the picture of the premises are totally outdated. I wish I had read the trip advisor reviews and not bothered to book total waste of money and more importantly our family holiday, I don't expect a refund but it would be the least you could do as a gesture of goodwill. As for publication of my feedback/complaint I don't think you will.

  • "We had a very comfortable stay, although there were a few problems."

    The second day we had no hot water and was told at reception about the booster button for hot water. There is no information in the lodge about that. Also we could not open the door to the balcony, as there seemed to be a problem with the lock. We were out every day so that did not affect us too much. The lodge was all we needed and quiet, situated at the lower end of the site.

  • "Unfortunately the standard of accommodation is not as described."

    It had not been cleaned on arrival, However, the resort staff were marvellous and cleaned it immediately. As this accommodation is privately owned, it seems there was a lack of communication about whose responsibility it was to clean. The sofa is threadbare with holes in and awful improvised cushions stuffed in making the seats uncomfortable. It is advertised as a standing shower in the main bathroom but there is no hook at height, so in effect only one shower workable. This shower leaked all over the floor. There were not enough of the same sized glasses in the kitchen for 5 of us (4 of each) and glasses were cracked. There was not enough cutlery either (only 4 knives!). It would have been nice to have more plates than just the six as not enough then for any extra when prepping food etc. The prepping knives (paring etc) were all very blunt and unusable, meaning the only sharp knife available to use in prepping was the serrated bread knife! The fridge door was broken. The carpets were filthy and desperately need replacing. It could be made very nice but clearly the owners have not spent any money on it, so for the price we paid, it was inadequate. This is a shame as the resort itself was lovely. If I were to go back, I would rent one of the resort owned cottages as they appeared much nicer.

    Thank you for your feedback. We want all our guests to enjoy the facilities as advertised on the website. The issues raised are being rectified and we note that the owner has made Goodwill Gesture to you for the inconvenience caused. Property Owner

  • "The chalet was immaculately clean on arrival and its location was ideal for our needs."

    Only one disappointment. The kettle was cracked and showed signs of melting! I informed the Reception and they said they would advise the owners but nothing happened and we had to purchase a new kettle ourselves which we then took home. I did leave a note in the chalet when we left. Apart from this we had a briliant stay.

  • "Generally we spend nice quiet week."

    We like this place mostly for a nice view, good size of accommodation and really nice swimming pool which unfortunately was close becouse of pandemic. Path between lodges are not in good condition (hill one) that should be repaired. I was surprised as well that we was need to clean all forniture on veranda, they was not ready when we arrived, and very dirty after winter time. Is one of the places you could visit every year. Is really peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings of the nature.

  • "We had a lovely week at Savita Cottage, helped by the Scottish weather being extremely kind to us."

    The cottage was very spacious and comfortable with all that we needed. The lodge park itself was quiet and well maintained with great facilities at centre, with a good swimming pool and lovely lounge/bar. Loads to explore around the area and we even fitted in a day trip to Belfast on the ferry. Our only point of improvement was that the carpets in the cottage were a bit tired so either need replacing or a good deep clean. We would love to come back though to Brunston Castle and that area of Scotland.

  • "We had a very relaxing holiday."

    The cottage was so comfortable and homely. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The only downside is there is no shop or restaurant on site so having a car is useful, although the walk to the local village is nice and buses to Ayr and Girvan stop there.

  • "The cottage was in a really lovely position within the complex, right in the bottom corner."

    We would certainly stay again. The facilities on site looked good, although we didn't use the leisure complex. The reception staff were very polite and helpful too. We had a problem with the plug in the bath -it had obviously been broken sometime with the previous guests and the cleaners hadn't reported it. We reported it to reception on the Sunday morning and it had been fixed before we arrived back at the lodge-excellent service! The only negative comment about the cottage was that the cleaning on changeover day could be improved slightly and the windows hadn't been cleaned inside for a while/skirting boards in some areas were dusty.

  • "Had booked this lodge for my disabled son and 2 of his carers the lodge itself was good for his needs but extremely disappointed to find clubhouse and restaurant shut down."

    This was one of the main reasons for booking ,so that my son could go out for meals within vicinity without having to travel. This resulted in staff having to shop and cook rather than eating out. I feel the advert should have been changed and updated. As you will realise it is extremely hard to find the right accommodation and facilities for him and spent a lot of time making sure I got it right which unfortunately did not happen.

About the location

DAILLY

Ayr 16 miles.

Located on the Water of Girvan in South Ayrshire, Dailly, or ‘New Dailly’ to distinguish it from ‘Old Dailly’, was developed in the mid 18th-century as a coal mining village. The ruins of the Robert Adam-designed Dalquharran Castle stand on a hill overlooking the village. The ruined church at Old Dailly dates from pre-Reformation times, and houses the mysterious Blue Stones; thought to be Charter Stones, ancient symbols granted to an area in place of a written charter, several legends have grown up around them. One holds they were Sanctuary Stones and would protect anyone sitting against them, and another belief is that their mystical powers would bring good fortune to anyone touching them. The village of Dailly today has a pub, shop and post office and the series of Dailly Trails make for ideal walking, forming part of the Carrick Way. Dailly’s proximity to the Ayrshire coast makes it an ideal venue for exploring the many golf courses, beaches and castles, including spectacular Culzean Castle, and with the Galloway Forest Park nearby and its many walks and cycle rides, this is a great location to use as a base for touring.
