I highly recommend these chalets at Pine Bank. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Fabulous location overlooking the river Spey and very friendly owner and receptionist. Local pub less than 5 minutes from the chalets which serve excellent food, best to book in advance as it is very popular. The main centre at Aviemore is less than a 10 minute walk... More

As with our two previous visits, the chalet was spotlessly clean on arrival. Absolutely no complaints about the facilities provided, but would have liked to have been able to control the storage heater, which was very effective, to say the least. The location is ideal for trips to the Cairngorms and Aviemore, and there is a lovely little pub within... More

Very central but I thought expensive. £374 for 2 nights for 4 people. Basic accommodation in comparison to Piper Dam but hey ho, its Aviemore. Shower was good and bathroom a good size. Very busy local bar 30osecs away which was loud on the Friday evening but didnt bother us at all.

Thank you for your review and we're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I'd like to however put your point about our pricing in context - £374 for 2 nights does work out to be just £47 per person per night and you failed to mention that you actually stayed in a 6 sleeper which equates to £31 per...

Though the lodges are located in nice surroundings (if you don't mind the train line rumbling next to your lodge), I wonder why they call the lodges 'Chalet'?? The website fails to inform you that all the lodges do not have similar amenities (lying by omission??). We paid a good amount for a small place with no dishwasher or washing... More

We have to admit to being slightly taken aback by your claims that we're 'lying by omission' - it is certainly a first for us and your review is quite the opposite of the vast majority we receive. With regards the amenities, when we spoke in person I did say that our website does not lay claim or even indicate... More

Clean, comfortable chalets in ideal location (walking distance to shops and restaurants) with everything you need. Liked the traditional pub nearby, which is really nice coming from the middle of a busy city, though it was verrrrry busy later on at night and was a little tricky fighting your way to the bar. Overall the chalets are really good, and... More

We really enjoyed our break at Pine Bank Chalets. The fact that they're dog friendly encouraged us to book. Aviemore town centre is just a short walk away, Rothiemurchus is practically across the road. It is a nice quiet location. We stayed in the Nethy Cabin which suited our needs. Would I recommend this, definitely! Will we be back, you... More

Many thanks for your review. As dog owners ourselves we know how great it is to find somewhere good that you can take your pooch on holiday! Most of our chalets are pet friendly (we've even had rabbits and cats!) and some have a secluded gated balcony area for your pets, with outdoor dog beds provided! The Cairngorms are just... More

Pine Bank Chalets are perfectly located just outside Aviemore, close to the river and a good pub. Recently stayed here for a stag do, in a party of 11. The Chalets were clean and provided all that we needed and, given we were a stag and a bit noisier than average, the staff were tolerant and understanding. There is also... More

Thank you for your great review. We do try to accommodate all groups large and small and only ask that people are considerate of others and this works really well. We do have a good relationship with local activity providers and many offer discounts to our guests. Thanks again for your recommendation and so glad that you enjoyed your stay! More

We arrived at Aviemore train station and after picking up a few supplies from the Tesco virtually opposite the station, proceeded to walk to Pine Bank Chalets (10 mins tops, even dragging cases and shopping). "Checked in" with the office, which consisted of being given the key and being pointed in the right direction to our cabin (100 yards). Some... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The location was peaceful and the chalet well equipped and comfortable. We walked straight out of the door to go on a three hour hike up Craigellachie nature reserve one day and could also walk out and be in a pub in two minutes, Indian restaurant in five and all the shops in ten. Brilliant,... More

We had a problem with chalet door, which was quickly fixed by Simon shortly after we reported it.
