Visited twice now. Use it as a base on snowboarding trips to Glenshee, or for walking. The manager is a very helpful friendly chap, even made us some fresh bread! One visit we had the entire place to ourselves! Two cosy living rooms with open wood fires, huge kitchen, large dining room (which can be a bit chilly in winter)...

Many thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your recent stay at Gulabin Lodge. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Regarding the chilly dining room-we have recently found a fault with our boiler in that a mixer valve had failed hence a lack of heat being pumped around the system. We are confident this...

My weekend is well spent with my dear family and friends at Gulabin Lodge Outdoor Center. We are group of 9 family with 18adults and 14kids. We rent the entire lodge which located next to Gulabin house and during our stay, the house is vacant and we have the areas to us. The communication between our representative and Gulabin's representative...

Stayed at Gulabin House self-catering accommodation on 17th December 2016 for 3 nights. The photos looked lovely prior to staying, however this was soon forgotten. On arrival, bedrooms looked very different to pictures, straighteners burns in bedroom carpet, very basic and mould in every bathroom. 4 bathrooms of which 2 showers worked and they only worked when every other type...

Many thanks for your comments, these are much appreciated. It is a real shame that if there were so many problems with the house you did not bring this to the attention of our manager during your stay. It is also disappointing that you choose not to mention my manager having to clear up your regurgitated mess outside the patio...

We stayed in the house, as opposed to the lodge, for a hen weekend at the end of May. The house itself is beautiful, wonderful views, great facilities and just generally really lovely. It sleeps up to 12 (although there were only 10 dining chairs), with two double rooms, two twins and a room of bunk beds. We were all...

This is a hostel, not a hotel, so be prepared to bring your own food and cook it, and to strip your beds and clean up after yourself. Bunk beds (in a private room) were clean and comfortable. Reasonably equipped kitchen, comfortable lounges, the opportunity to chat to other guests in the kitchen, and a manager who was helpful but...

12 of us stayed in the hostel (there is a fancy luxury house next door that looks tremendous). Our accommodation was clean, tidy and well organised. The location is incredibly beautiful. All this would have been enough but the staff just made it that bit better. They organised events for us, cooked breakfast and made lunch. They have an ideal...

Superb location in the Spittal of Glenshee. Ideal for walkers, cyclists and skiers. Spotlessly clean, very warm and a relaxed ambience suited for couples, singles and families. Great self catering facilities which would be a bonus for families on a tight budget.
