Over Christmas week, we were lucky enough to stay in the new Dunroamin guest flat. We decided to go for a self catering holiday as we like to fend for ourselves a little. The Dunroamin guest flat has the best of both worlds. We had the freedom to come and go as we pleased in our own flat while still able to tap into the trusted local knowledge normally offered by guest house proprietors.
The flat was modern, tasteful and exceptionally clean. It seemed that someone had been round to polish the cutlery and glasses before we arrived!
When we first went through the door, we went exploring and came to a number of conclusions; Dunroamin have thought of pretty much everything! We were hard pushed to think of anything that should be there but wasn’t. Loads of hangers, decent iron and board, washing machine, dish washer, even a pizza wheel! Though after a week of living there, the only gripe that we had was there was no pasta drainer.
There was loads of spare bedding and tons of assorted sized towels in the airing cupboard.
The kitchen was well supplied as mentioned. With ample cleaning products, there was even dishwasher and washing machine tablets to save you going out and buying your own when you may only be doing a few washes throughout the week.
The living room is large enough to entertain 6 of 7 adults. There was Freeview TV and a DVD player.
The bedrooms are large and comfortable. The beds are of a high, guest house standard. Again, the attention to detail on cleanliness is very noticeable.
There are two wash rooms. Both were immaculate and of a high, guest house standard.
The flat is about 1mins walk from Dunroamin. It is about a 5min walk from the centre of Aviemore. To get to Aviemore you go out the door and turn left. Its easy to find and in a fantastic location.
I only got to meet Jim. He was honest and you got the sense that he would go well out of his way to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as he could.
To sum up, the flat is like a home from home. Its warm, comfortable, quiet and has an almost OCD attention to cleanliness. Next time I am up that direction, I intend to book again.
