“Great house, lovely location, privacy concerns”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A large group of us stayed at Gulabin House for a hen party. The location is fab, it is secluded without being too rural and very scenic. The house itself is lovely and there was absolutely everything we needed. We were given a good arrivals tour by the on-site managers. Our only issue was that of privacy. We were told that the on-site managers lived directly behind the house and had access to the drying room via a door. We did not realise that this meant they would use this door as a throughway whilst we were staying in the property, which happened on at least two occasions. We were particularly perturbed when at one point on the Saturday evening as we were sitting in the lounge, the female (I'm sorry I don't remember her name - Ash?) strolled in without any warning to retrieve a vase for some flowers she had just been given. Now we realise that access to the house is probably necessary when you are an on-site manager, however we did not think it was right that she was able and willing to walk in unannounced whilst we were in the middle of a private party. Furthermore on the Sunday morning as we were packing up our cars, but still technically 'in' the house, we noticed both of the managers come through the door from the drying room, coffees in hand, to get outside. Again we just don't think this is right if you have paying guests using the house.

That aside, we had a great stay and I would not hesitate to recommend Gulabin House. We did unfortunately leave a stain on the dining room tablecloth that, even with our repeated scrubbing and use of cleaning products and lemon juice did not budge! We will happily replace this.

“Great Weekend”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed here for a long weekend along with 11 others and the house had everything that you could have asked for. Darren the owner was accommodating when arranging activities for during the day and very helpful when needed. Highly recommend staying here and would definitely return.

“Excellent weekend”

11 of us stayed here for a hen weekend, house is more than adequate with great facilities. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you could ask for. Log fire is amazing as are the views. Our only constructive criticism would be that a bit TLC is required. The place could have done with a deeper clean, a shower curtain in main bathroom and blackout window coverings in the bedrooms. Bathrooms all had mini bottles if you forget your shampoo. We did rifle shooting whilst there which we all thoroughly enjoyed. A BBQ was also provided which we used. All linen, towels, cleaning stuff provided. On the whole great value for money.

Stayed here to help out at the Cateran ultra marathon last weekend. What a stunningly beautiful house , to wake up to the most incredible views was just the tonic when you have to be up at 4am!
Fantastic facilities, can't wait to come back again, think we'll try before next years race though.

“Another wonderful visit.”

Not the first time we have stayed at Gulabin House and we have already booked our next stay.
The combination of this beautiful house and it's stunning location make it the perfect destination for a weekend trip with friends or family. Having stayed in both summer and winter we have experienced the very best that Gulabin can offer.
Summer; an activity break with friends enjoying the facilities of the outdoor centre, the option of cooking inside or out and relaxing on the decking in an evening enjoying the peaceful surroundings.
Winter; close proximity of the ski slopes, roaring log fire, plentiful hot water - essential after a day on the slopes and fantastic drying facilities for outdoor gear.
Each time we have been warmly welcomed on our arrival and owners and staff are very attentive but never intrusive. The house is furnished to an exceptionally high standard and everything you require for a five star self catering holiday with family and friends is supplied.
Without exception everyone we have taken as our guests has come away with wonderful memories of our trip.
