My first experience and I enjoyed very much the people I met there!

My stay at the hotel was great, people are kind, the volunteer job is light like clean rooms, wash dishes, mop and hoover floors, it's easy to learn. The neighborhood is quiet, calm and only 30 min of Edinburgh so this experience was perfect to me, otherwise i could practice English and learn more about the Scottish culture.

My time at the hotel was amazing, the hours are respected and the tasks are simple, which gives you the chance to explore the nearby large cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow. The Lodge is a beautiful place and allowed me to meet such amazing people since fellow volunteers and the staff which can not be more welcoming, specially Gillian, our manager, who is the best ever and will be always there to help with any issue you may have. Will totally recommend this volunteering experience.
