  • "Everything was clean and accurate."

    The only thing that was noticed by us which is worth mentioning is that the sofa wasn't clean, it was full of strains.

  • "The flat was cold, the boiler needed to be repressurised."

    Windows were draughty, misted due to condensation between panes & one could not be opened, (notice left to this effect).

  • "The location was excellent,very quiet and peaceful located in a small villiage,if I were to be picky I would say there’s to many stairs, not so good if your elderly as the final flight of stairs are very narrow and steep and the bed was a little on the hard side."

    There’s really only one grocery store in the villiage so be prepared to pay a little extra or load up with food before you arrive. We traveled 6 hours from Liverpool and I can honestly say we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks very much rick and Susan.

  • "Lovely apartment in a building with character and surrounded by beautiful countryside."

    Excellent local walks including the Wildcat Trail , the Highland folk museum just down the road is well worth a visit as is the Glen Hotel (within 100m). Only issue is with the bed which is not that comfortable and very squeaky.

  • "Excellent 3rd floor apartment which was very well furnished and equipped."

    I must have read the initial information incorrectly prior to booking as I thought there was a working safe lift. In booking in info it was stated the lift was somewhat unreliable and were advised not to use it. As were many posters around the whole property.....Getting our suitcases to and from the apartment was very difficult for us both As I am getting on a bit ( age-wise) and suffer with COPD and Angina...I did find all the stairs very difficult. But I survived as did my Wife who also has a few health problems. We had a very pleasant stay in Newtonmore and enjoyed the local Glen Hotel for Food.

  • "A great apartment for a couple."

    Comfy bed, decent sized bedroom, nice bathroom, good eating arrangements, quiet and peaceful, very clean. It was a great base for walking locally and further afield in the Cairngorms. Plenty of space to hang wet waterproofs and leave boots just outside the apartment. Kitchen area adequate, maybe could do with a bit more equipment and small plates. Also the bed was a bit squeaky but these are just small niggles. We would definitely like to stay here again.

  • "This property is perfectly located in Newtonmore near the intersection of the A86 and the A9 which makes it perfect for day trips into the Scottish highlands and out to the Isle of Skye by car."

    It is perfectly set up for a couple to spend a week or two exploring northern Scotland. A family with a child could use the flat as well but there is only one bedroom so the child would have the option of sleeping on the couch in the living room (which is very comfortable) or on the futon in the bedroom with the parents. There was a baby crib in the bedroom closet that could be set up in the bedroom for an infant. The flat was very bright, exceptionally clean and everything worked perfectly. The owners were very easy to deal with as well. There is parking for a car in the parking lot right in front of the building off the street. Although the building is on the main street, the unit faces out the rear of the building so there was never any traffic noise at all. This unit is on the top floor of the building so we never heard any noise from any of the neighbors either. There is a lift up to the second floor but to get to this flat you need to climb one flight of stairs from there so this place may not be suitable for the very elderly or anyone who has difficulty with stairs. There are several pubs in Newtonmore, a small grocery store and a gas station which made preparing for our day trips very convenient. My wife and I looked at several dozen places before booking this place. We both agreed that this flat was by far the best value for the money of any of the places that we looked at and that we would recommend this place to family and friends.
