    “Excellent location for a family holiday”

    We booked the Suidhe Lodge for a family holiday to celebrate a birthday. We had a fantastic week, the house is in a wonderful location, with a gentle walk down to Loch Insh close by. The owners are really friendly and helpful and let us use their two canoes, which they supplied with oars and life jackets, all free of charge. ...

    We booked the Suidhe Lodge for a family holiday to celebrate a birthday. We had a fantastic week, the house is in a wonderful location, with a gentle walk down to Loch Insh close by. The owners are really friendly and helpful and let us use their two canoes, which they supplied with oars and life jackets, all free of charge. The grounds were perfect for the two small children in our group, with the play area and slide an unexpected bonus. We also enjoyed using the hot tub and the outside fireplace as well as the summer house. The house is beautifully furnished and very well equipped, especially the kitchen which has a dishwasher and a washing machine. We mainly self catered and found all we could possibly need in the kitchen. There is a Tesco in nearby Aviemore which is well stocked. All the bedrooms were comfortable and en suite. We also really liked the co-located Suie Bar, which was very friendly and had a good selection of ales and beers on and also has a pool table. The Bar has a folk night on once a week, which a few of our group went to and really enjoyed. Despite being so close, we didn't hear any noise from the bar when in the house or gardens. Our only reservation initially we the close proximity to the A9 but in actual fact this did not cause any problems and wasn't even audible. We went out on many trips both jointly and separately and thoroughly enjoyed walking locally and further afield out in the Cairngorms, which are breathtaking. There are also many parks and attraction nearby, which would suit a wide range of ages. We would wholeheartedly recommend Suidhe Lodge to anyone looking for a group holiday in a fantastic location with all the comforts of a wonderful house and the many extras including a bar on your doorstep.
