Travelled to Tummel Valley with friends at the start of June on a £9.50 Sun holiday & have to say I was pleasantly surprised! The road taking you there isnt the best but once we negotiated it we were met by a very nice girl at reception who ran through our welcome pack with us, told us about pool opening times, entertainment & what other activities there were in the area then directed us to our caravan.
The caravan was lovely with central heating & double glazing throughout, huge living/dining area, fully equiped kitchen (although the grill took FOREVER to cook stuff under) & a great power shower that about blew you out the cubicle!
The setting is very nice & very quiet. Its very picturesque with the mountains in the background, some forest walks & walks down by the river. There isnt that much to do in & around the park so if you are looking for somewhere lively I dont recommend you come here. There is a small play park for the kids, swimming pool, crazy golf etc & entertainment at night was a bit naff but if you had kids they would enjoy it. The pool isnt very big & gets filled up quite quickly. They also operate it on an hourly timetable so you have to get out after an hour. It is a bit of a nightmare trying to get a cubicle to get changed after your hour is up as there arent enough for everyone getting changed to go in & getting changed to leave. There is also a sauna for the adults.
The staff at the bar/restaurant (if you can call it that) arent particularly pleasant & the food at the 'restaurant' was really quite disgusting. The starter came out cold then my 'rare' steak came out completely cooked through. We'll know next time & DEF will not be eating there. Like another poster commented, its also quite expensive for drinks.
There is also a shop on site that sells a good selection of groceries & unlike a lot of other places in the middle of no-where, doesnt charge the earth for them.
All in all we had a good time & would go back.
