Absolutely fantastic. In our one week stay, we ate here twice and had a drink at the bar almost every night and I can honestly say that this was the best part of the place. The bar is cosy and warm feeling and the restaurant is vibrant and welcoming. Not to mention the food was absolutely delicious. The staff were...

Pros Good views of Loch (depending on lodge) Access to pool, sauna, steam room & gym. Good location, just outside of Aviemore New restaurant opened within the former club room is a welcomed addition as the previous bar was rundown.

We ate twice at Jakes over our two week holiday, we were non residents. We visited Jakes as a family of five, two adults and three children, the food was fantastic, the staff lovely and very helpful. Our youngest child has additional needs and can be disruptive, this was not an issue, even when he did get quite lively. The...

Visited this resort as it looked good for families. The accommodation was nice, lovely kitchen and bathroom, clean and well stocked with appliances. It might be small for six but perfect for a family of four. There was kids activities, but we never got a chance to attend these. There was a horse and carriage ride event we wanted to...

Great chalet. Everything you need for self catering and a good night's sleep. Woodlands are well maintained and the peace and serenity of the location envelopes you immediately. Loved the visiting ducks and birds to the chalet door and regularly seeing rabbits, frogs etc. We loved our 4 night stay. Our next stay will must definitely be for longer. This...

Dropped in for dinner this week, have not been here for years, what an improvement. The food was simple but tasty, well presented, reasonably priced and very hot. The three members of staff on were all very pleasant, polite, smartly dressed and would appear to have been local. We will definitely return here and also happy to recommend to others

With the loss of the club room to a franchised restaurant there are now no organised activities indoor for children in the evening and no place to play in inclement weather during the day. Wifi is now restricted to the tiny reception area and is not available in the lodges. So the former club room lies empty for much of...
