  • "A lovely clean, comfortable apartment."

    Kitchen area small but well equipped. Bed very comfortable. We had everything we needed for a lovely week away. Beautiful walks all around. Close to Loch Insh . Really quiet.

  • "Pros + fantastic location, lodges nestled within the Forrest, peaceful, easy excess with car."

    Cons- the lodges apartment itself was clean, but the bed was very uncomfortable, the sofa in the main living room has seen better days, very very uncomfortable we cut short our holiday by 2 days due to chronic back pain. I suggest the owners invest in a new mattress and sofa seating

  • "Overall a fantastic experience, and the property was fantastic."

    The one draw-back was the extremely low shower pressure in the Osprey Apartment (particularly when compared to families' showers in the Wildcat Lodge). However, this was such a minor point when rating the overall experience.

  • "The apartment and location were both excellent and difficult to fault."

    Excellent value and quality service throughout the booking and stay. I would highly recommend Osprey Apartments and Sykes Holiday Cottages, and I have already booked for 2023 with the Sykes group. Thank you. Mark & Gillian

  • "I had asked for the pull out bed to be made up, this had not occurred and whilst bedding was found in one of the cupboards there was no second duvet anywhere."

    fortunately my friend had brought his own sleeping bag. The teapot was dirty and had not been washed. The freezer compartment was so frozen up it was almost unusable.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay very relaxing lovely lodge and location."

    The only thing which could of been better is the water pressure in the shower which is quite poor. Also to have a plug in closer proximity to the mirror (hair drying).

  • "The property itself is lovely and well kept, however there is very little space to cook and the bed gave us both really bad back ache after sleeping on it for a few days."

    The light on the balcony came on when turned on but then flashed 3 times and went off. Not good when outside and you can’t see. The bathroom was lovely and the shower worked well, and the star gazing windows were a treat. I think if we came back we would book one of the bigger lodges.

  • "The location was lovely, we really felt in the middle of the Cairngorms but still within a very reasonable driving distance of the amenities of Aviemore."

    The apartment was warm and comfortable, very welcome after days out in the cold! Some of the kitchen appliances/crockery were a bit dirty, we rewashed them before using it - additionally we could have done with a garlic crusher and some kitchen scales for our cooking (we bought some from the local store in Aviemore and have left them there for future occupants). Our main issue was the water pressure in the shower - I have thick curly hair so the shower being so weak meant washing my hair took a considerable amount of time! Additionally, on the first day there my husband hit his head on slanted ceiling, right on the edge of one of the windows. It was quite a nasty hit and left a large bump. We were wondering if there would be a way to soften those edges? I was less bothered by the slanted ceiling as I am quite short.

  • "We loved our stay."

    The property is well located, near to Loch Insh and Aviemore. Everything in the apartment was excellent quality and it was really warm and comfortable. As other reviewers have said, the kitchen is small and there isn’t much storage but this wasn’t too much of an issue for just a week. We loved having velux windows over the bed so we could look at the night sky, and the small balcony felt nice and private. The only thing which wasn’t great was the water pressure: the shower was fairly weak and it was honestly the only negative about our stay. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and we’d love to come back.

  • "Fantastic appartment, with great facilities and location."

    Only a couple of things to note, the staircase upto the front door is in need of some attention as the wood slats are starting to errode and could probably use a coat of weatherproofing oil. Also the shower has extreamly poor pressure making for an underwelming experience. Otherwise we were impressed with the quality of the cleanliness and decor.

  • "Beautiful setting, everything was to the highest standard."

    John Lewis everything. Stars at night through the roof windows, red squirrels in their dray viewed from the King sized bed. A small problem with the heating was fixed promptly, politely and with minimum fuss. It's a brilliant place to stay in the heart of a fantastic area for wildlife. Peace, quiet, warmth and rest.

  • "Lovely clean apartment in a lovely location but it was a bit too quiet for us personally."

    We were unable to make use of the communal log burner as felt like we would be imposing on the family below who used it every night. The kitchen is lacking anywhere to store food i.e vegetables, tins, bread etc. The fridge was the only food storage place. I feel a vegetable trolley or rack could be placed in the kitchen. As there is no washing machine we expected more towels than we were provided with. We also were unhappy that we could not stream anything on the tv as if the weather had been poor we could have watched a movie etc. I think the apartment should also have an iron and ironing board. To summarise we did love the apartment which seemed very new and finished to a good standard I just feel the aforementioned issues would make a difference. I dont feel the communal area works if the people in both areas are not part of the same group, we would loved to have had use of this but it feels very much a part of the lower building.
