Very comfortable accommodation for our family of five adults and one child. The balcony and views from it towards Cairngorms was wonderful.
Rosemary, Fife : 28th May, 2016

Location was great, easy to find and close to a late closing Spar (5mins) and Aviemore city centre (10/15mins). The Cabin was a good size, clean and comfortable. The view from the balcony was beautiful when the sun was setting casting a pink glow over the mountains/hills. Very good value for money!

Barry, Liverpool : 5th August, 2015

Liked the space, the open plan living, great for wee ones. Very cosy, heated up quickly when required. Lovely bathrooms, powerful showers & plentiful hot water. Loads to do in the area, whatever the weather. Bought a day pass, twice, for the pool/soft play at the MacDonald Hotel which was great. The Mountain Cafe is outstanding, staff are so friendly and accommodating to little ones.
Susan, Penicuik : 4th June, 2015

The accommodation was great. Lots of room for everyone.
Ian, Forfar : 20th April, 2015

We loved the location of the cabin. Convenient for dog walking, town centre and driving to the slopes (when they were open unfortunately). Dishwasher was broken for 2 days but was fixed by a friendly professional electrician.
Mrs W, Leeds : 30th March, 2015

Comfortable, cosy chalet, very well equipped and set in a quiet location. Great views over the Cairngorms. Pet friendly, really enjoyed our stay.
Andrew, Laurencekirk : 10th December, 2014

Fantastic gem of a cabin very centrally located in a quiet spot. Great price and the cabin itself was spotless on arrival 5 stars
Elizabeth, Aberdeen : 10th November, 2014

As there was six adults we wanted somewhere with space and Gael Cham was perfect. It is situated in a nice quiet area.The views from the balcony were great and the chalet was very clean and comfortable. Although a bit of a walk into Aviemore it is a very pleasant walk to the many restaurants and shops.
Margaret, Uddingston : 9th September, 2014

It's located in a relatively quiet residential area. Cosy, warm and very clean accommodation. All information needed, such as wifi code etc. provided, great appliances and fittings throughout the chalet. Fantastic view from the balcony.
Bridget, Colchester : 9th September, 2014

The cabin was beautifully furnished, well equipped and perfect for our family of 2 adults, 3 teenagers and a dog. A nice balcony and unexpectantly stunning views of the mountains from the lounge. A grass area outside to throw a ball for the dog. Set in a small and quiet residential area on the edge of town.A fabulous location to explore Scotland. We visited the beaches in Lossiemouth and Nairn; climbed Ben Rinnes and walked around Loch Ericht and Loch an Eilein, as well as a trip to the ski centre.A 10 minute walk into town where we had a great meal at Papa Rock with portions big enough even for our 17year-old. A lovely walk along the river in town near the railway.
Ali, Norwich : 30th April, 2014

Great location, near to all the amenities. Luxury lodge, warm and spacious. Set in housing estate so may disappoint those expecting rural position. Great views from terrace to mountains though.
Fiona, Edinburgh : 14th March, 2014
