Stayed in Ardenbeg while visiting the Inverness area with a group of friends. Was very pleased with everything, was clean and very cheap. Has all the facilities you would expect and need. Great place, I'll be back!!

Stayed for one night with my family. The bunk house was clean with a good kitchen space. The shower was temperamental and we gave up and used another one. Regardles of that the showers were well appointed and the beds were comfortable. Would recommend for backpackers, walkers, ramblers, climbers and large groups on a budget stay.

My son's in-laws live in Grantown, but could not house all 16 of us. I booked the Ardenberg on-line for 4 adults + 4 kids + 1 wee dog. It was not 5 star, but offered home comforts with caring support. We had the ground floor, which had two rooms (1 with en-suite). One room had six bunks, the other... More

Having hunted high and low to find hostel accommodation, which was truly 'dog friendly', we discovered Ardenbeg. From the first phone call to leaving the hostel, the warm and friendly service from Sabine and Rebecca helped to make our holiday special despite the rain. The hostel is equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a good drying room. Visitor... More

A fantastic bunkhouse/outdoor centre with excellent equipment hire facilities and everything you would expect in terms of kitchen/drying room/bathrooms/bedrooms. We had a 6 bed (3 sets of bunks) room to ourselves (3 adults) and had the sole use of a bathroom. The other room on our floor had a separate bathroom for thier use. The kitchen was shared but was...

Thank you for taking the time to place a review. It is very much appreciated. I am glad that you found the facilities met your needs. Many people travel a long way to get to the Cairngorms National Park so it essential that their accommodation (and other requirements) meet, or better still, exceed expectations. Thank you too for pointing out... More

We headed up to the Cairngorms to catch the end of the winter season, for some fun in the snow. I have stayed at Ardenbeg bunkhouse in Grantown twice before, once on a winter skills course for young people, and again later that winter with friends. I chose to stay here again with my parents because I enjoyed the previous... More

I very much appreciate your comprehensive review, in particular the fact that you mention so many of the facilities around and about the hostel. This will definitely help future visitors realise that although Ardenbeg Bunkhouse is located in the Cairngorms National Park, we are still within easy reach of Aviemore and have plenty of shops and locations to eat within...
