“mmm, dont think we will be back”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

location was fab,staff very nice, bedrooms were very clean,bad news living room was stinking, the carpet still had the previous dog smell on it, out of four seats in the living room all were stinking.i had to buy febreeze to try and get rid of smell, all clothing had to be washed if you sat down.The disable shower was clean shame there was no pressure with the water.we paid £300 so was not a cheapie. I am an asthmatic and asked all the usual questions about pillows etc but my asthma was so bad with said carpet we thougth about leaving.After reading other reviews i thought yippee but never again.
ps cabins are within touching distance of each other,we had to keep curtains closed for privacy

Room Tip: motel was busy try it, may be better than cabins

I stayed in one of the smallest chalets on a midweek special offer with linens and electricity included in the price. This was an amazing bargain as the price would have been a good one for the accommodation alone; the chalet was cosy and the linens provided of a very good quality. There was ample storage space and the location provided a feeling of complete tranquility and seclusion; the joyously bright Alpine exterior offset by an internal colour scheme so soothing in its soft earth and heather tones that one could feel instantly absorbed and cradled in the peace of the beautiful surrounding wooded slopes. The rural quiet helps to guarantee a good night's sleep in the extremely comfortable bed and it is a real pleasure to sit on the generously sized balcony with a cup of coffee or a wee dram, watching the world awaken or settle into the twilight. Rabbits and squirrels run freely about the grounds and are a delight to watch as are the many species of birds. The excellent and convivial on-site restaurant La Taverna offers a very good value takeaway menu as well as its extensive dine-in options; enjoying a glass of wine in the bar as the pizza is freshly prepared, then taking it back to the comfort of your chalet is an ideal way to relax especially on your first evening. High Range itself is a convenient base from which to enjoy the many activities in the area; it is right at the junction of the ski road and the main road through Aviemore, yet it feels completely secluded and "away from it all". On the practical side, be prepared to bring or buy your own washing up liquid etc for self catering accommodation; one toilet roll is provided but everything else is up to you, which no doubt helps to keep the prices so very reasonable and the special offers as extensive as they are.

I can't say enough about High Range. The team here, especially Monika, are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make sure you have a good time. The toilet block is immaculately clean at all times and the washer/dryer is big and powerful. The cabins are exactly what you'd want for the skifields - cosy with great heating but good air flow too so it doesn't get too stuffy. You can walk into town in just a few moments and the Taverna is on the corner for delicious traditional pizza. There are daffodils sprouting all over the campsite and cabin grounds and the snow covered mountains are our view. Loads to do in Aviemore town and up the mountain. We had friends stay in a bigger cabin and we stayed in the smaller one and we were all really happy. We would always come back here!
