Ben Klibreck is a well appointed lodge in an excellent position for relaxing times in the hot tub enjoying uninterrupted views ovee Moray Firth.
Everything you need is provided for your stay, with one exception: bath robes would make using the hot tub a great deal better. The sort of thing most people wouldn't have space for in their suitcase.
My friend and I had a three night stay here recently and we were delighted with the lodge. There was no stress involved in arriving at a certain time, the key is kept in a lockbox so you can arrive at any time. The lodge is IMMACULATE!! Furniture is very new and good quality, plenty of cutlery, plates, glasses, pots etc for cooking. Bed linen and towels were provided. The best part was the hot tub! On our second night, the sky was so clear so we could sit in the tub under the stars. Bliss!
For us, the lodge was absolutely perfect but here are some suggestions which could make it even better:
9 adults and 7 children had a great time in this beautiful old house. Kids loved playing hide and seek and hunting for ghosts. Adults had an excellent time with their own murder mystery night, which found the reverend guilty. A real character house with a lot of rooms for everyone. The owners are doing a great job of renovating the house but it will take time. Some of the rooms look s bit tired but I can honestly say we all had a brilliant time. House is inactive good area that lends itself to plenty of places to visit. Would love to return one day.
