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

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.

We arrived at Pine Bank Chalets tired after a 9 hour drive to be greeted warmly and given the keys to our lodge. The lodge was even more beautiful than the pictures show on the website, equipped with a brand new kitchen, appliances, and an amazing log burner. Everything we required was at hand and of high quality. Attention to... More

I have stayed at Pine Bank on a number of occasions and quite honestly say the quality of the accommodation and service can't be matched. Easy to find, next door to an excellent pub and fantastic facilities and car parking. The chalets are of a very high standard, extremely clean, warm and full of character. Will definitely return and can... More

Really pleased with the standard of our cabin. Usually when you ask for dog friendly you get the tired old place that no one else wants to stop in. Well not here, it was spotlessly clean and modern. We will definitely be back.

As doggy people ourselves we are very pleased to offer a wide range of accommodation both from our premium and classic range for people and their four legged friends! We are glad you liked the chalet and hope you enjoyed some of the fantastic walks we have around here. The Old Bridge Inn pub next-door is dog friendly too! More
