Angela’s 50th Birthday Celebration
on Saturday, 30 Sep 2023
We had a fabulous time celebrating my 50th birthday at The Old Ministers House in Aviemore, even “Spud the Piper” paid a visit and played a few tunes which was such a lovely surprise gift. The house was very spacious, clean and accommodated our family well. The location is fabulous with plenty of walking options directly from the house but was still close enough to Aviemore Centre. The garden with hot tub was also great with plenty of seating however, the seating at the riverside at the back of the house could do with being replaced as it was in pretty poor condition. Also, we used the BBQ on the Sunday for lunch however, the drip tray underneath the BBQ had not be cleaned and therefore the BBQ caught on fire which could have been a disaster if we hadn’t managed to disconnect the gas and remove from the outside hut, as had we not done that the hut would most likely have gone on fire. Also, we hadn’t managed to cook all of the food at that point which was a bit disappointing. We therefore called the maintenance person who attended within 20 minutes who apologised for the inconvenience as the BBQ should have been fit for use. However, we understand that this was an omission, I.e. ensuring that the drip tray was clean. Therefore, based on our experience I would not locate the BBQ itself within the he hut/seating area. Overall, I would certainly recommend this property as we did really enjoy our stay and think that both the house and location are fabulous.

Just back from a long weekend here with family (12 adults) The house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, the location was great, quiet and relaxing but close enough to shops bars etc, rooms were spacious, little extra touch with gowns and slippers provided was great. Nice seating area outside aswell. Plenty room for parking 4 cars. Definitely would return to this property.

A fabulous stay
on Sunday, 23 Jul 2023
A great stay in a terrific location. The house was big enough to fit the four of our families with plenty space remaining. We didn't feel at any point cramped or living on top of one and other. Aviemore has plenty of things to do and amenities for any length of holiday but this was the ideal house in which to stay. The only area I'd ask for consideration of review would be the time to get into the property- 1700 is somewhat late on in the day. The check out time of 1000 is also pretty early. Otherwise it was perfect.
