Reviewed 16 May 2013

Ian and Liz run a clean, friendly and well-equipped hostel where everyone you meet will have a tale to tell. Free WI-FI, woodburner, free range eggs from the hens, great wildlife in the grounds, suoer showers, lovely comfortable lounge and I totally and unreservedly recommend this to anyone who doesn't enjoy the soullessness of a Travelodge! This place has CHARACTER!!

Really Well set up, always cosy and warm when you get back from the slopes, drying room so everything is sorted for the next day. Ian is an absolute character, and their knowledge of the slopes and alpine treks is invaluable. Literally 10 mins from Aviemore in a stunning location, can't say enugh about the place

Stayed for two nights, the lodge is fantastic, spotless, well equipped, homely and very comfortable, a fantastic base for touring around the Black Isle, Aviemore, Moray, Boat of Garten, to be honest, had I not had appointments to come back for I would have stayed longer,
Ian and Liz are lovely and friendly, and the setting is fantastic, I will be going back again and again, it is a real gem,

We booked at the last minute and were delighted to find this well equipped, comfortable and tranquil hostel at then end of a long day's travelling. Excellent facilities and the added bonus of the red squirrels feeding outside the lounge window. Despite being just a short distance from the A9 it was very peaceful and quiet so convenient without the drawbacks of traffic noise.

The twin room was very comfortable and the upstairs rooms looked good too. I wonder what the demand on showers would be like if the hostel was full but for us it was not a problem.
Kitchen well equipped, excellent recycling options and lots of thoughtful additions like the herbs and free range eggs. Certainly would return and would be tempted to try a winter break there for the x country skiing

Upon arrival we were met by the man of the house who was very friendly and actually checked us in early. You have to take off your shoes at the door and put on croc shoes, which was a bit odd, but hey, when in Rome. We had booked a family room, but after drop outs we were down to 2 and the gentleman offered us a twin room instead "to save us a few quid". We agreed, though I have to say we weren't that fussed either way.
Our room was very clean, though quite small and the beds were very comfy. The bathroom is still to be finished, no facings on the door, chipboard, mdf etc aplenty.
The kitchen and lounge are spacious and comfortable.
Some hostels have the bare essentials available for users, such as butter, milk etc. That's not the case here, so stock up before you come, with the nearest shops miles away.
One uncomfortable moment came when it became evident that the lady of the house wanted us to pay for the en-suite family room despite moving to the non en-suite twin room. A difference of 40 odd quid. We paid £42 for the twin room in the end, but this didn't take account of the £10 deposit we'd already paid, meaning we'd paid £52. We felt a bit diddled by the whole issue.
I have to say this coloured our view of the stay, feeling a bit done and in truth we just wanted the stay over and to move on.
