After reading some very positive reviews we were very excited for our holiday at Cayley Lodge. Unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations.
The room was quite pleasant (we stayed in 1a), situated close to the putt-putt course. Everything looked quite new and modern but for some reason the bathroom had a very unpleasant, strong smell of urine that we could not get rid of and this seemed to permeate throughout the room. The bathroom could also use a towel rack as there was nowhere to hang towels. The ad also said the bathroom had a bath/shower combo but we only had a shower.
The noise from the room above us was also really loud. They had 2 kids that were constantly running up and down the wooden floors and kept us awake at night and woke us up early every morning. Some soundproofing would really help.
The lodge is in serious need of a restaurant and bar. We were celebrating our ten-year anniversary and we had to leave to go and have dinner elsewhere. This turned into quite a nightmare as on our return we found that the river had flooded and we could not cross the bridge to get back to the hotel. After a few hours of waiting for the water to subside we met some friendly locals that showed us an alternate route through some pretty dodgy roads.
The shop is overpriced and has limited opening times and limited stock.
We also found 1 or 2 of the staff to be unfriendly and unwilling to help.

My wife and I loved the Fordoun. It was the perfect relaxation stop on our tour of the country with safari on either side. The restaurant is great. Milk tart ice cream was the best we'd ever had. Staff could not have been more helpful and the room was luxurious.
