Very friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic choice of beers in the bar/restaurant and good food, especially the curry. However the condition of the rooms was not so good: door locks not working 100%, dark small rooms and a very tiny shower. We stayed at a friday evening and there was music and singing till late, after which the guests of... More

Stopped here last year and gave it the benefit of the doubt, and stayed here for a couple of nights last week. Won't make the same mistake again! Perhaps it's best to begin with the good points -Excellent breakfasts, Decent evening meal,good choice of beer,friendly staff -That's about it. We arrived mid-afternoon and reported that our toilet was broken. After... More

Very loud, late night music - to 1am and beyond - was a big problem, guests rooms being above the bar and music/karaoke stage area. Paying guests seem to have little or no precedence over the small number of revellers that the live music attracts. There was no daily room service - room not cleaned at all during our three...

We stayed one night only (Sunday 24-5-15). The entrance was filthy and the whole place looked run down. The bannisters on the stairs were dangerously loose. We had a twin bed room which was dark (walls painted maroon) and the en-suite shower/toilet room was the smallest I have ever seen. The towel rail was hanging off the wall. The music... More

I was worried staying here that it would be terrible. It was far from it. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had everything you needed. There was loud music until 1am but I am a light sleeper and still managed to sleep through it, just depends if it would bother you. It's far from 5 star hotel, but a decent... More

We were more than a little apprehensive when we pulled into the carpark, however were pleasantly surprised when we went to our room, it was clean and the bed was comfy even quite liked the mismatched furniture and interesting decor. Found the staff and the locals friendly and helpful, bar was well stocked with local ales and whisky. We ordered... More

Checked in and realized we'd made a huge mistake. Room was dirty, decor scary & black mold on the bathroom ceiling. When a huge spider crawled out, we were done. Husband informed the manager that we would not be staying another minute due to the deplorable conditions. Manager refused to apologize or refund our money. We took our bags and... More

My colleague and I were on our way to Inverness and we arrived here after a Booking. com search at Carlisle. We both smiled at the interesting decor and mismatch furniture. The beer was fine though and that soon had our attention. The one thing that needs sorting is the massive sign in the front that says ' Book now... More

We have been going to Aviemore every Easter for about 7 years and every year this place has been getting worse and worse. Arrogant bar staff, especially the manager! And avoid the food at all costs, it was like a microwave meal, and the soup wasn't even hot!! We complained to the bar staff to no avail not even am... More

Positives: central location, fabulous breakfast , cheap. Negatives: no staff at night, clients alone in hotel ! First night , domestic fight and polis, second night, next room vomiting all night ! If you want a reasonable bed at a cheap price, this fits the bill. Bring ear plugs and sleeping pills or drink yourself into a stupor .
