Rated 5 out of 5 by Teresa Canny on 18th May 2019

So comfortable, staff on site were amazing, quiet and peaceful. Well equipped lodge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by judy rowan on 9th June 2019

The McCardle was lovely & the built in hoist over the bed is brilliant. My only comment as a hoist user is that the bed is a double & very low & made undressing & dressing on the bed vertly difficult for myself & my carers. The bed could do with being higher or ideally a profile bed or a bed that could be raised & lowered would make the McCardle perfect for the more physically disabled. We also had a bit of trouble with the Smart TV but after contacting reception someone came straight out & fixed it for us which was great. A good weekend was had by all. Thank you. Judy.

Stayed at The Mcardle lodge for 3 nights for the Kielder Marathon weekend first weekend in October. Lovely lodge in a beautiful location. What spoilt our weekend is the hot tub not working and the heating wasn't working. The main reason we chose this lodge was for the hot tub so it was very disappointing.
