We stayed for 2 nights last week and could not fault Hillside Havens. The Pods are a bit like a Tardis and appear small from the outside but are quite spacious inside and have EVERYTHING you could want. Spotlessly clean and very modern. Sitting area with sofas and Netflix on TV, dining table, kitchen area with fridge, hob, micro, toaster etc etc, separate shower and toilet and although the bed is in the main area it is made to feel separate due to a window like hatch and being in an arched area of the pod. These have been very well planned out. Under floor heating was amazing and even though it is February I turned it right down most of the time, very cosy. Amazing views and great decking/seating/BBQ area with fire pit. Short walk in to Dufftown itself where we found great food and hospitality in one of the local bars (The Stuart Arms). The hosts at Hillside Havens are on hand if you should need anything and are very friendly and accommodating. Cannot recommend this highly enough and we are now trying to sort out dates with friends so we can rent all 4 pods together!!!.

Would you recommend this hotel to a friend?   Yes.

“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 5 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

We stayed here for 1 night and it was amazing. The location was so peaceful and super close to the nearby distilleries! The glamping pods were great; really modern as I think they had been built very recently. We were only the second people to stay in our one as I recall... anyway they had everything you would need! Clean, modern, fast WiFi, tv with Netflix, torches if you want to walk to the town at night, towels, complimentary soaps and shampoo..

I think they were really good value for money! We loved them and would like to return sometime.

Just a tip for travellers and to the hosts. I remember the hot water tap being very very hot.
Maybe a sign to warm guests would be good. Just in case a kid put the tap on full blast on hot :)

Hi Ally, Thank you for the very nice review, we have tried to make the pods as comfortable as possible. Noted on the hot water, we have actually turned down the water heater thermostat so that its not too hot anymore, but will see about adding signs too. Hopefully welcome you back to Hillside Havens soon. Thanks Eleanor & Derek
