“Phone enquiry?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2009

After reading all the good reviews I decided to book a room at the hostel.

When trying to enquire and book a place the person speaking to me was quite off hand about the dates and prices. When I asked was it ok to keep a dog in the car overnight the person became very aggravated saying ‘no no we don’t let dogs stay here’ and pretty much put the phone down. Well why don’t they make this clear on the website?

It is such a shame we couldn’t stay as I’m sure when you do it’s a great experience.

Stayed September 2009, traveled as a couple

We are sorry you felt that we did not deal with your enquiry very well. Our hostel is small, we employ no extra staff and at times 'reception' becomes a bit hectic. Our prices and the fact that we do not take dogs is on our website on the 'News' page and on the 'Frequently Asked Questions' page. You will find most hostels do not take dogs and a dog friendly B&B or a self-catering property may be better suited to your needs.

We stayed here one day on our way to Inverness and we enjoyed the stay. The hostel is small and cannot be compared with other large hostels, it is better!
It is cosy, with a woodfire, a well equipped kitchen. The owners put effort in recycling which is a plus! We regretted not staying longer because there is some great walking in the area and the owners can surely give some good advice on where to go.

The owner Pete is a very nice guy. I left my adapter/plug at the hostel and he offered to sent it to my home adress.

Small, friendly hostel with lovely hot showers and cosy beds. The owners discourage noisy/drunk guests, smoking in the vicinity, and general unsociable behaviour - which is absolutely perfect for us. The kitchen is well equiped and there's a drying room although we didn't need to use it. We'll be back.

This was my second stay in Newtownmore. Excellent hostel to use as a base for the Dromochter Hills, the Monadhliaths and the Western Cairngorms.
Comfortable rooms, well appointed kitchen and a good wood-burner make for good apres-hill, plus very handy to the pub.
Peter and Kathryn are very accomodating hosts.

Thank you for your kind words and good report. One puzzle, why 1/5 for 'service', did we get it wrong or is this a mistake/
