Richard and Patricia have "upped the game" with regards decor, following the sale of another property (lots of new/quirky bits on the walls and shelves etc.) and this has simply added to the ambience of a unique hostel that I already love. Please promise to NEVER modernise it !!

We were a family group staying in the Station House this last weekend and it was wonderful. Plenty of space, really well equipped kitchen and lots of things to do in the area. The Station House at first glance was an unusual venue, but the books, games, table tennis table, memorabilia and convivial host all made for a fantastic few... More

Our group of 17 adults and young people had a great tie as this cosy, warm, well-equipped hostel in Nethybridge. We have stayed at the Station House before but never the station itself. Great facilities for this group with so much to do at the place itself that some never left the premises the whole weekend. The rest of us... More

Our group (~15 people) stayed at the Nethy Station on a weekend trip in January 2016. The bunkhouse is ideally located for outdoor activities in the Cairngorms with MTB trails in the nearby forest, and hiking or skiing a short drive away. The bunkhouse was clean and well equipped for a self-catering group. We were chuffed to discover a bookshelf,... More

Stayed in the station once again for the annual UBMC trip to the Cairngorms. If you stay here it is very easy to see why our club has come here for so many years. Excellent amount of comfortable beds with enough different rooms to allow some guests a bit of added privacy. Kitchen is small, but is more than adequate... More

This bunkhouse was perfect for our trip (taking 50 students for an activity weekend). It was affordable, and well equipped for self catering. The bunkhouse supplied plenty of glasses/cooking utensils & pots/ plates and so on. The bar area allowed a good social atmosphere, facilitated by the ability to BYOB. We ordered laundry - everything was ready for our arrival.... More

We had our staff week away and enjoyed our time there. Plenty of space, friendly owners, clean and a great price! There is plenty to do around Nethy bridge and its a beautiful part of the country. This is perfect for big groups and would recommend it heartily.
