“Great trip away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

Stayed in lodge 12 and our whole stay was perfect from start to finish! The lodge was cosy, comfortable and exactly what we were looking for in our stay in Aviemore. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our own meals too. Very close walk to the main street in Aviemore and other walks/attractions were also close by which was ideal. Already planning on coming back to stay again during the summer and doing more activities in and around Aviemore!

Just returned from a week's stay as part of a timeshare exchange. Stayed in Appt 47. Can't find enough words to describe how pleased we were with our stay. Appt was comfy, cosy, heating was excellent and very cheap, wonderful shower with plenty of hot water and in the ideal location - just 10min walk into Aviemore for shops, cafes and restaurants. The apprtment wasn't the biggest or the most modern but if you are looking for a quiet, warm base close to everything this is the place! Staff really friendly and helpful and all little maintenance problems dealt with quickly by a really helpful team. Can't find fault with anything and are busy planning a return visit later in the year

We stayed in app 30 which has a double bed and a single bed and a double sofa in the lounge. We have never been away for xmas before. Aviemore is magical place at Christmas. We had everything we needed and the flat was very peaceful. Free laundry room and everywhere spotless. Staff very helpful. Would love to go back. There is so much for the kids to do. Don't sit watching the T.V over the holidays get out and do stuff. Big tip! Contact the Macdonads Hotel for a what's on guide and your children will be so glad you did. So much entertainment for them.

Room Tip: Dogs are also welcome

A bit late with my review here, we stayed here during an uncharacteristic Scottish heatwave last summer and had a fantastic time. The location is fab - off the main road and very peaceful. We only had dealings at the reception on arrival and departure; service was friendly and efficient. We were in the apartment above the reception which was clean and spacious with everything you'd need for your stay. The TV was huge, perfect for watching the Wimbledon finals!

As mentioned, the weather was incredibly hot, making sleeping a little uncomfortable. We had to leave the windows open and share the room with a bunch of moths. The heat, however, totally tired us out so it wasn't too much of an issue.

Would definitely recommend the Scandinavian Village to anyone of any age and I would have no hesitations about staying again.

My wife and I stayed here for a week. Our apartment was in the perfect location, upstairs and out of the way. Parking was tight but there is an overflow car park which is pretty large. The decent sized bedroom was perfect for the 2 of us and don't worry about it being cold in the winter as the apartments heating is very good. The kitchen area has a fridge/freezer, cooker, dishwasher and microwave. We used it a lot more than we thought. The living room is open plan and not too cramped.

The hotels location is perfect for exploring the local area on foot, it backs on to the Aviemore Orbital footpath which is perfect for Dog walking or running. The town is a 5 minute walk and the Tesco is only a stones throw away. in the room there is a welcome pack which tells you everything you may ask about what to do in the local area. If you go in the summer months there is a lot to do, winter means that a lot of the attractions are closed but there is still plenty to in the local area.

I cannot fault the cleanliness or standards of the resort, staff were very friendly to us and we never had any issues.

Electric has to be paid on departure so remember to keep money for that but we were only £30 for the week.

Room Tip: Upstairs apartments give more privacy and have a balcony. Walk out the back of the resort to find...

We stayed here for a week in September and had a lovely stay. The kitchen has all we needed, the lounge was open plan with the dining area. Upstairs was two comfortable bedrooms and one full bathroom with a power shower. Downstairs was a guest toilet. This was an good base to explore the area with wonderful walks, lots of outdoor sports as well as the surrounding area with the distilleries. You have to visit the smoke house for smoked salmon, the woollen mill and Walkers biscuits.And go for the sheepdog show, it is very good and on a working farm. Also try to go for a scrumptious lunch at the Aviemore hotel. All within easy walking distance.The Tescos close by helped a ;lot with last minute food shopping. The resort is clean and well laid out.

We have stayed here lots of times now over the last 25 years! It is a lovely little complex and although there is a 4 of us in a 1 bedroom apartment there is still plenty of room and the kids love sleeping in bunk beds! There is everything you need and if there is anything missing you can just ask reception which is what we did when we couldnt find a can opener! Aviemore is a great (but not cheap!) place with a handy Tesco and some nice restaurants/takeaways. We got Tesco to deliver our groceries to us on the first day which is really handy! There are so many places within an easy drive of Aviemore which is why we keep coming back. It is a great base for lots of fun days out. We will be back!
