Lots of guests have left glowing reviews on TripAdvisor after a stay at Portavadie. These recent reviews sum up all that’s wonderful about the place:
‘One of my favourite places. We’re frequent visitors to Portavadie, however this was our first time eating in The Lodge restaurant. The service was excellent: attentive but not over the top, and the food was really, really good. I had roasted pepper pasta and my hubby had a venison burger – both were delicious. We then headed over to the main marina to relax with a couple of their new cocktails… Portavadie is a fabulous place for a weekend getaway, a short break or – like us – an afternoon treat. If you haven’t visited yet, why not? Book up now!’
‘A total treat. I recently spent some time at the marina and it was fabulous! I can recommend the beauty spa which was a lovely treat. The whole experience was so relaxing with the beautiful surroundings, really helpful staff and fabulous accommodation at The Lodge. I particularly loved the large, comfy sofas and fireplaces where I could get lost in my book. Can’t wait to return some time soon!’
