I stayed at pine bank chalets for 2 nights along with my wife and 1 and a half year old. We stayed in the nethy chalet which we found was spacious,clean and we'll equipped. The only issue was the fact the train line is directly behind this cabin however trains were not too frequent and after a few we didn't... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Craggan cabin. There was ample space for 6 adults (we were 4 adults, 1 toddler). The kitchen facilities are great - it has everything you need (including cloths, washing-up liquid and tea towels). The beds were very comfortable. The larger bedroom is very dark however, and the smaller bedroom has only a loft-style window,... More

We stayed in Dulnain cabin for 2 nights with our 1 year old daughter and really enjoyed it. The cabin was roomy and very comfortable for our stay. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed. Reading reviews before we left, I noticed one negative seemed to be that there is a train track right behind the... More

We have just returned from spending a week in the Einich Chalet at the Pine Bank Chalets in Aviemore. It was the perfect size for 2 adults and 2 children and very well equipped. The location was very quiet and we were not bothered by the trains that ran past behind us. The kids loved the little park and playing... More

Many thanks for your review and we are very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We do try to keep all furniture and carpet spotless and do replace them regularly but inevitably they do get some small marks. The furniture and carpets in this chalet are just 2 years old but we will see what we can do as... More

Chose pinebanks chalet for its convenient location and privacy. We went for findhorn as we needed a 3bed chalet. Its a very cosy chalet. Only draw back is that you can hear the person using the toilet in the next room. Parking is good. Another thing is that most of the time the reception is left unattended. The chalet looks... More

Hi - I'm not sure when you tried to visit reception but it is manned 5 days a week for 8 hours a day and phone numbers are on the door for when the office is closed and we live onsite so are almost always available right away! Findhorn is one of our oldest chalets but it remains one of... More

Have visited Pinebank Chalets on various occasions over the years. Our last visit our chalet was a little 'tired' but this time it was great to see the new owners starting to reinvest! New kitchen and bathroom & a wood burning stove! The chalet was comfortable and clean and the beds were comfy (those duvets will definitely keep people warm... More

Stayed in Sheiling apartment which was a perfect base from which to explore Cairngorms National Park. The apartment was of a great standard and tastefully decorated. Kitchen small but functional. The communal play area was quite literally on our doorstep - perfect for us with a toddler and kept him and our older kids amused. We would love to return.

We booked online having seen these chalets last time we visited Aviemore. Conveniently situated for the town centre, local amenities and the Cairngorms, our chalet was cosy, clean and had some nice touches such as quiet closing loo seat. Great for night time toilet trips for the kids. Kitchen was modern and well set up. The beds were comfy and... More

Stayed in Dulnain chalet for two nights. Receptionist friendly and quick and simple check in. Chalet was nice and tidy and furnished nicely. Has everything you need for self catering (oven, cooker, microwave, cooking utensils) and if you are eating out there is plenty of places within 5-10 minutes walking distance. We dined at Cairngorm Hotel and La Taverna, both... More

Stayed in the main house in the Attic . Property could do with a fresh paint to brighten it up. Think with a bit of TLC it would be a great little place. Fantastic location being a 5 min walk from the centre.
