Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Pullen
October 2020
Very pleased to have found this cottage after another had suddenly decided to cancel the booking a few weeks before departure - even though it had been booked and paid for last December.. Sadly Sykes not that helpful and left it to myself to find another cottage and the pittance of just over £30.00 compensation was a laugh that only really covered their booking fee. Poor customer service all round. Anyway the cottage was very clean, tidy and held everything I need. The owners who live in the attached house were extremely friendly and helpful. Great place for exploring the mountains. Very comfortable.

Had a fantastic holiday.. The cottage was really clean with everything we needed. The location was perfect for us. Nice and quiet location with a few places to eat and drink within a 5 minute walk. Aviemore was only a 10 minute drive or 15 minutes on the train. Highly recommended.

The seating area in this property was extremely uncomfortable, the so called sofa gave us severe backache.. The TV worked but kept on switching itself over, and was so small you was sat looking downwards with a bent neck which also contributed to the backache. We were asked to arrive two hours later than the original time stated and asked to leave an hour earlier than stated, this was supposed to be to provide a deep clean. I myself am a private cleaner and the size of this property did not warrant an extra 3 hours for a deep clean on top of the usual four to five hours they have, which is usually between 10am and 3pm, by anyone.

We had a lovely stay here and our first time booking a Sykes Cottage.. There was everything that we needed including ample crockery and utensils etc (but we didn't cook really!). The place is a little bit small for a family of four if you intend to spend a lot of time inside the home, but we knew it was sufficient to our needs as a base for our holiday whilst visiting family. We enjoyed watching the squirrels in the little garden too! Thank you.

Rafael and Alison, as well as their two sons, are friendly and helpful hosts.. The apartment was quiet and secluded, immaculately cleaned and otherwise prepared for us, surrounded by beautiful greenery, and close to many beautiful walks and climbs in the area. We would certainly consider staying there again.

Lovely little cottage, a great place to spend our Christmas.. Slightly bigger than expected from the photos. Bed really comfy. Warm and cosy venue. The owner was lovely and lent some books to us.

We spent one week at the Brucanich Cottage and we really enjoyed it.. The house was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. They also provided us with a cot for the little one. The location is also very good, at 10 minutes walking from the centre of Kingussie, where you can find a coop, different restaurants and a couple of take away places, which are ideal at evenings if you don't want to travel far just to have dinner. We reserved everything through the website only 3 days before going on holiday, and everything worked perfectly. Very pleased!

We spent a week in this cottage. It is well situated just a few minutes walk from centre of Kingussie and well placed for hikes into the hills behind. The cottage is well fitted out with everything needed in the kitchen together with a comfortable double bedroom and nice bathroom. We were a couple and as another reviewer has said it might be a bit cramped for 4 although no doubt feasible. We appreciated the wood burning stove which we lit for 2 unseasonable cold August evenings, made the lounge very cosy! Owner lives next door and was very welcoming. A very good option for a couple looking for self catering near all hiking in the Kingussie/Aviemore area.

The wood burning stove and supply of wood makes this a great property. In a good location, handy to the town amenities. Had a very good range of books/maps/guide books.

The property was excellent; very friendly and helpful owners and a nice retreat from the rush of the Midlands. The wood-burning fire was lovely and the cooker and kitchen were great quality.
