Lovely cottage in a quiet village Very warm beds! A separate toilet would have been useful with 6 people! Not quite enough room for everyone to sit comfortably in the lounge A very temperamental door knob on the downstairs bedroom; quite annoying! Extractor fan didn’t work We had a lovely holiday though! Useful additions in the kitchen would be, a slotted spoon and a balloon whisk

A pleasant and comfortable cottage by a village green.. Ideal base from which to explore the beautiful NE Cairngorms, beautiful glens & Banff coastline. Some of the wildest and most remote Highland Scotland can be remarkably easily reached right from the front door (Try Glen Avon). Rgds MW

We had a fantastic time - the cottage was clean, tidy, and beautiful.. Keys were simple to collect and return, and the furnishings were of a very high standard. The fridge door seal is a little loose is the only thing we could think to comment on! Absolutely smashing, if we're ever back north then we'll be booking again. Thanks so much!

I have put the review as "met expectations " simply because we have stayed in the cottage before so know what it is like.. It's a wonderfully appointed cottage with every mod con you need for an exceptional holiday . We just loved it once again , it didn't disappoint. The village as a whole is fantastic , very friendly atmosphere and the local people are very welcoming. We will be going back at some point to the cottage , it is a credit to it's owners Stuart and Hannah

Nia Roo is comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.. We were looking for a tranquil setting for a much needed rest from the hustle and bustle of work the week, at Nia Roo ticked all the boxes and we came back feeling relaxed.

Great location and a nice cottage which would be even better with a little TLC.. An extra comfy seat in the living room and a better equipped kitchen would make a big difference. The standard of food available in the village is not great so you have to cook in-house particularly in winter. Would also have been nice to go into a warm house as it was minus 7 when we arrived, however I appreciate this not always easy to achieve.

Never had to moan after 25 years of cottage holidays, but this needs attention from Housekeeping, and after complaining to Sykes and Owners while we were there, we had no response until we phoned when we returned....disgusted. 4pm check in, cold cottage, problem with central heating adjustments, no welcome pack, no milk ,make sure you take your own! Cottage fine, had issue with cleanliness of various kitchen utensils. Garden full of weeds, no TV/SKY instructions, not good if you are not Sky people. Not a cheap holiday not an expensive one but when you have a concern it would be nice to get a response, Overall the Cairngorms are magnificent, just glad we were able to be out all day.

The weather was absolutely beautiful up until Thursday evening and the early hours of Friday morning where it was torrential downpour all night.. The cottage was clean an tidy when we arrived and nice and cozy the grandkids loved their stay there as well. Thanks again I will probably be rebooking Nia Roo again next year . Mr Gordon Newish.

A very well presented cottage with modern kitchen and bathroom. It is a very cosy cottage with great decor and a very clean feel to it. You will not be disappointing with this cottage. The location of this cottage is great, right in the centre of a small and very friendly village. We ate at out at the local pubs most nights and they were great value with a good choice of food and good character. We will definitely be booking again here.

Stayed here with friends last week and had a great time. The house is clean, warm (especially loved the open fire in the living room) and ideally positioned to explore the wonders of the Cairngorms. We went hiking and snowboarding and that didn't even touch the amount of activities we could do in this area. Would highly recommend staying here. The village itself was very welcoming, with two excellent little pubs that served good food. Very enjoyable stay
