Stayed here for the first time with my daughter on the last day of our NC500 road trip. It won't be our last visit to be sure. The hosts John and Irene are extremely good at what they do - friendly, welcoming and full of good advice on the local area. The house is beautifully furnished and decorated and our room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was superb! There were several repeat guests staying which is always a good sign and it was lovely to meet them. Keep doing what you do. We will be recommending to our friends who are planning this trip.

Dear Classywanderer (great nom de plume, by the way!) It is very kind of you to have taken the time to pen your very kind words about your all-too-brief stay after your trip round the NC 500. We very much enjoyed looking after you & Rita, of that there is no doubt and we're delighted that you both felt that your overnight with us was a fitting end to your trip. We very much look forwards to both of you becoming repeat guests too. Until next we meet, all the very best to you both and thanks again, John.

Came here to stay for two nights with my partner and dog. Both irene and john were lovely, very accomadating and did everything they could to make us and our dog feel comfortable and welcome. The house was spotless and there was a good selection of tea/coffee/hot chocolate and kettle in the room. The shower worked well and was easy to use. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. When we arrived we were welcomed into the lounge with a cup of tea and coffee. We had a takeaway the first night and were supplied with plates and cutlery which was great. On the second night we went to a local hotel for dinner and irene and john were so kind to watch our dog for us while we ate out as she is a young dog. Breakfast on both days was absolutely lovely, there was a great choice and it was very fresh. There is a lovely seating area out the back with table and chairs. There is a good parking area. John and irene provide good information about the local area. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Claire, it was, without doubt, a delight to look after you, Steve and Mia when you stayed with us not long after we were allowed to re-open post Lockdown. Thanks for choosing us once you were allowed "out" too, it was very kind of you to help us get going. We are really pleased that you all enjoyed your couple of nights with us and it was a privelege dog-sitting for Mia, allowing you to enjoy your dinner locally. We hope to see you all again in the not too distant future but, for now, all the very best from the two of us to the three of you. Stay safe and stay well. Thanks again, John.

My wife and I toured around Scotland for a couple of weeks this fall. While looking at the Caringorm Mountain Rescue Team Facebook page. We noticed that John and Irene from Clune House had made a donation to the rescue team. It was this community mindedness that drew me to looking at their web site. The rooms looked neat, tidy and spacious for a reasonable price. When we arrive we were very impressed with the room and the friendliness of John and Irene. Our room was beside the road but we could not hear any traffic noise at all. After a quiet restful night we were treated to a delicious breakfast. As this was near the end of our trip we got to see several different hotels and B&B's. This was the best we stayed in during our 3 week trip. Our next visit will be back here with more time to explore. Jeff and Theresa from BC Canada.

Jeff & Theresa, it is very kind of you to take the time to write your generous review of your stay with us, thank you. Our time togther was all too brief but better the one night than none. We very much enjoyed your company, I can tell you, learning about your own SAR experiences and telling you a few more things about the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team to whom we donated our winnings at the local End of Year quiz - which is the donation you spotted on Facebook. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and for thinking us to be the best accommodation during your trip - high praise indeed, thank you. We'll be delighted to see you both again when next you are travelling our way. Until then, all the very best, John & Irene.

We stayed three days at the Clune House and enjoyed every moment. Irene and John are wonderful hosts who supported us with restaurant recommendations and advices for our walks. The room we had was very cosy and comfortable. The breakfast is excellent, and offers a wide selection to choose from. When traveling the Cairngorms do not miss to stay at this B&B.

Dear Basler, Rest assured that it is we who should be thank you two for your great company during your 3 nights with us. You were doing the hard work, walking the East Highland Way. By comparison, we just did the easy bit, looking after you both!! Thank you for taking the time to post your very kind words, thoughts which we do value, I assure you. As we discussed, there is a whole host of walking based here in Newtonmore so we very much look forwards to welcoming you back when you decide to explore some more. Thanks, too, for your tips to Irene about the best places to ski in Switzerland - all part of her planning!! For now, though, all the very best to you both and thanks again, John.
