  • "We stayed at Otter Lodge for two nights and we really loved the everything about it."

    The lodge had everything we needed and was very clean. The only problem we had was the wifi. The first day it stopped working from around 8pm and then only came back on the next day about 12pm. Mobile signal is not the best especially to get 4G but this didn't stop us from enjoying the time we spent there. In the morning going for a walk in the woods was just lovely. Definitely recommend the Lodge to anyone especially those who want to escape the city life and enjoy some peaceful sounds of nature. :)

  • "Really nice lodge, in a great location."

    The lodge was clean, bedrooms were huge, we made full use of the wood fired stove. We will definitely be visiting again.

  • "Lovely property close to Aviemore."

    So much to see and do. However, few little, minor things… 1) Outside area not clean. Dirt not swept away & rubbish left. Also, grass could do with a cut and weeds removed. 2) Some minor bits of dirt in shower with some mould starting to show. 3) House sleeps 8 but only 2 of us but yet ran out of toilet roll….if there’d be 8 of us, we’d have had trouble. Having said all of that, these are minor things and we had a fantastic time. Looking forward to our next visit

  • "Do not like the induction hob on the cooker as it is really difficult to control."

    One armchair had loose legs which made it questionable to sit in.

  • "It would be better if there was more cutlery and crockery as had to keep dishwashing with less than half a load (not very green)."

  • "Sadly the instructions for the heating were a little misleading - basically we worked out that if the water was heating up (ie after a shower), you had no heating!"

    Internet signal/WiFi was patchy and as it was shared across the lodges, it wouldn't even work with my laptop. The cooker rings sometimes worked - couldn't understand why. Would have been nice to leave a couple of dishwasher tablets to start you off - for the price of this villa I would have expected a few extras. Toilet upstairs stopped working one morning.....but got it working again myself. However it's a lovely setting and excellent as a base for the west of the Cairngorms, good wildlife - lots of birds and I think we has a Pine Marten visiting. Red squirrels are nearby, one ran across the garden! Would be good to see the visitor book contain leaflets about the area - nothing there about the area, and I left a book on the Cairngorms to hopefully start off a library! Note that for Otter Lodge you cannot park your car outside the lodge itself, it's a very short walk along a level path to get to the lodge.

  • "These lodges seem to be fairly new so everything was clean and well maintained."

    They are light and airy and warm. The remoteness of the area meant that it was very peaceful and quiet which is what we wanted. However some little things were lacking such as hooks on the bathroom doors for towels or bathrobes and neither bathroom had any shelves on which to put ones toiletries. The upstairs bedrooms lacked wardrobes and the little hanging space tucked away in the eaves was barely adequate.
