  • "Little Lodge itself is immaculate and the host Mel is very welcoming."

    The main issues I have with the holiday experience has more to do with the access to the lodge as the road from Glenluce to the entrance is bad enough. Still, the track from the entrance to the lodge, in my opinion, is unacceptable, luckily I drive a car that sits quite high off the road so apart from the damage that could be done to my suspension it was just bearable. I would not recommend doing it with a saloon-type low-to-the-ground car. The other issue is with being limited to where you can walk around the lodge as there seems to be conflict with the owner of the old hotel who also has gates at both sides of his property which is something I don't see as necessary.

    Hi Andrew Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately you caught the road at it's worst. We carry out ongoing repairs to the road patching it up several times a year. The unseasonably rainy weather isn't helping! Repairs will be carried out this week. I hope you still had an enjoyable stay. Kind Regards Mel Property Owner

  • "The lodge is a little gem hidden away, family and pet friendly."

    The noise free time was awesome! As a Fibromyalgia sufferer this was the perfect place to relax & recharge. Also, the bed was soo comfortable definitely the customer was at the heart in everything the owners did and do here. They deserve a recognition for this and have no problem on highly recommend this place to anyone . The only observation as dog owner is that the overgrown area at the back could be cleared a bit for the dogs to indulge smelling and playing in the grass. Saying this my girls were treated as guests too and thank you so much for the efforts made to make us all feel welcome! We loved the place and it was difficult to leave

    Hi Betty Thank you so much for this review. Really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Little Lodge is a perfect peaceful retreat if you want to get away from it all."

    The Lodge is very clean and comfortable, and the owners have thought of every little detail to meet the guests needs, including those of the dogs. The owners are very friendly and helpful and on hand should you need them but leave you to enjoy your time there. The beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the hottub was an added bonus. To top it all the northern lights put on an amazing show viewed from the balcony. Highly recommend this Lodge.

    The cabin is maintained and presented to an extremely high standard with amazing attention to detail. Mel, the owner, adds a personal touch by greeting his guests on arrival and introducing them to the cabin, facilities and local area. Absolute privacy throughout our stay. Cant recommend Little Lodge enough! We are definitely going to book again.

  • "Little Lodge is well laid out, beds are comfortable kitchen, dining area all well set out."

    Wifi great but Sat freeview effected by the weather. The hot tub could do with a bit more windbreak around as net curtains are good for privacy but not the elements. Was good for old aching bones and joints and relaxing in the evening. But sadly only let down is road conditions which like the main roads are full of potholes but the materials are there to more than likely be repaired during the better weather. Mel & his wife were always available to help if it was needed. Would we stay again yes hopefully in the near future.

    Hi Tam Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. It was a pleasure having you both to stay. Yes we shall have another go at patching the road when the rain finally stops. Shall get my satellite meter to the dish and give it a tweak. Property Owner
