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 .

Nothing fancy about this hotel in Aviemore. Busy bar with good range of beer that also serves food and seems to have live music and DJs several nights a week (could be heard in one of our rooms). Friendly staff. Rooms are budget and decor best described as interesting and could so with a bit on maintenance, one bed was... More

It was dirty, Cold with no heating, the fire censer was not fitted just the wires where hanging from the ceiling, when the door was looked, one push with a finger was all it took to open.... More

We arrived in the beautiful town of of Aviemore in the early afternoon. After checking the price and availability at several locations in the town it was the friendliness of the bartender at the Mackenzie Inn that helped us decide. Our room was clean and neat. Unfortunately it was over the main street into town, where the semi truck noises... More

We stayed here for three nights. The rooms are definitely in need of a spring clean and maybe a handy man. We were offered clean towels everyday and if we wanted anything. Breakfast was good and we ate in the bar two nights and we could not fault the food one bit and was good value for money. The staff... More
