20 Sep Improvements this year so far…
We have been working hard over the last year to improve our facilities so we thought we should let you know what we have been up to.
At The Blackwater Hostel we have had the central heating system upgraded with Hive system. All the single glazing windows and exterior doors have been replaced with new double glazing units, the Mattresses have been upgraded to open-pored highly breathable material Mattresses (its supposed to reduce people from overheating when sleeping thats what they told us anyway) and the old school style traditional sleeping bag sheets have been replaced with proper fitted bottom sheet, quilt and pillow case style bedding to ensure a more comfortable sleep.
At our sister Hostel the West Highland Lodge the Heating system has been upgraded to rointe electric heating system. The windows and external doors have been replaced with double glazing units, the Mattresses have been upgraded to the same standard as the Blackwater Hostel. The old style sleeping bag sheets have been replaced with fitted bottom sheet quilt and pillow case style bedding and the shower and toilet facilities have had a refit with new wet wall, showers and sinks.
The Glamping and campsite facilities have also seen a refit this year to with the communal shower and toilet block being fully refurbished with new pvc ceilings and wet wall in the shower rooms and new windows throughout.
