"A relaxing and amazing place to stay - We love it here, we've been 3 times and will be back again. Such a beautiful place inside and out and the scenery is to die for. "
"A magical Christmas at waterloo Lodge - We have just spent a truly magical week over Christmas at Waterloo Lodge (family of 5 with 3 teenagers). The lodge is so well equipped and had everything we needed to make Christmas special - including cooking dinner! There is lots of space and even with all our luggage, food/drinks and Christmas presents the lodge never looked cluttered which was wonderful for us! The lodge is beautiful and has a feel of luxury and we loved the hot tub and sauna which made us feel well pampered too! Sitting in the hot tub sipping a glass of fizz looking at the amazing view was fantastic.
We arrived after a long journey to find a beautiful Christmas tree and lights all ready so thank you to the owners for that! You really have thought of everything to ensure we had a wonderful holiday. We also loved the area and the view from the lodge is amazing. We went to Ullapool for a day for lunch and also for the Tesco and then after that, the Spar in Lochinver was great for everything else and the return journey from Ullapool was the most amazing scenery we have ever seen - such a beautiful part of the world. We went to Alchmelvich beach on Boxing Day which is truly beautiful with white sand and blue water - must be a beautiful place to visit in Summer too. If you like walking then this is a great place for that too. We also visited the Lochinver Larder which was closed over Christmas but opened on 27th which was just about the right time as we needed a change from Xmas dinner by then and also to sample their famous pies!
There are a couple of other restaurants in Lochinver and the Wayfarers bar which were all open. There is some information to read on the bookshelf which was really useful too - it was great to read about the history of the Waterloo lodge! My advice if you are thinking of booking would be to book! I fail to see how anyone cannot love this place. All in all, we were one very happy family - we were really sad to leave and thank you for such a wonderful Christmas!"
