“Perfect stay in quiet chalet behind main house”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 via mobile

You can tell when a B&B owner likes to delight their guests. These owners fall into that category. From the clean and comfortable rooms to the tasty food to even giving my wife and I a ride to the train station, these folks obviously love what they do. We've stayed in eleven guest houses in Scotland on this trip and this ranks as one of the best, more like a 4-star American hotel than a B&B. they even had bars of soap and washcloths, a rarity in Europe. I would stay here again, and I recommend it for anyone looking for a place in Aviemore.

Had a one night stay with a group of male friends on a golf tour and refreshingly found all aspects of the stay excellent! Place clean, warm and pleasant with excellent breakfast served by nice people.

Would recommend and will stay again next time in Aviemore

We stayed here in January 2013. Weather was too warm so the skiers were not be found and we easily got two rooms for two night out the back next to each other. Overall a great stay, a reasonably short walk to town and some good advice on what to do in the area (Aviemore itself is really just a place to base yourself to explore the Cairngorms and Speyside). Agree that service was warm and courteous and the breakfast was great. Parking out the back was also easy.

Rooms themselves are basic but clean and the sitting room in main house has a great fireplace where one can fall asleep (like I did) after a big day of tramping through the Cairngorms!

We stayed for nights in a chalet room behind the guesthouse. It was very spacious, warm, modern and clean with a double and single bed and large bathroom. There is a porch so good for equipment storage.
Breakfast was man sized and delicious with a large choice on off. Our friends who came to see us for the day also ate breakfast with us which showed the hospitality of the owners.
Very warm and friendly we Highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Try a chalet if you need extra space. Great for photographers to have your own front door to catch e...

We happened into this guest house when the neighboring guesthouse had vacancies for "room only" no breakfast, the first place we tried was very rude about not having a twin room or space for us at breakfast, so we tried Ravenscraig right next door and were met with such a warm welcome it was lovely.

We stayed in a chalet room in the rear of the property which were spacious and modern, so quiet off the main road, chickens in the fence of the parking area were not too noisy in the morning due to lack of a rooster. Plenty of room to park our rental car. Breakfast was very large, we didn't, take everything offered and still it was too much.

Room Tip: The chalet rooms have holiday lights that blink outside the window all night, you have to draw the d...

A very warm welcome from the mother of the owner who was away. Beautifully furnished room (#5), with very nice soft furnishings etc and a comfy bed. Good ensuite shower room too. Breakfast was ample and excellent. Only a 5 minute walk from the High St too.

Our family stayed here just one night. We were shown wonderful hospitality.

The rooms were clean and comfortable and modern.

The complimentary breakfast was beautifully presented, classy and tasty.

Kudos!
