If you like tartan and bagpipes this is the place to be! Beautiful hotel with delicious local food. For starters I had black pudding with apples and bacon which was amazing. Followed by fish cakes and chips which was very filling and finally Osprey Folly which was a mix of ice cream, meringue and berries. Service was friendly and efficient.... More

Well situated in the centre of Aviemore the hotel has all the required facilities for a comfortable stay, although in need of refurbishment. Our twin room had a good shower, important for two wet hillwalkers. Dinner and breakfast are of a good standard. The restaurant does not take dinner reservations, but we were shown straight to a table at 8.00... More

We stayed in The Cairngorm Hotel in Aviemore for 2 nights, as a family of 4. We were given a family room at the 2nd floor, which looked like attic. Room was very small to take a double bed and another double/sofa bed for the kids. We could barely move around. Luckily we found excellent, hot, weather when we visited... More

We stayed at the Cairngorm Hotel for 1 night as part of a touring holiday in Scotland. The hotel is in an old grand building but is starting to show it's age and is perhaps due a refurbishment. Our room was large and comfortable albeit a little old fashioned. The staff - especially the lady on reception - were very... More

We stayed in The Cairngorm Hotel in Aviemore for 2 nights recently. Great welcome at reception & all the staff were friendly & very accommodating. Food was fantastic and the Manager went out his way to find us a table for dinner. Well worth a visit.

Went for a meal with family (wife and 2 kids under 7) on Friday night. Service from our waitress impeccable, nothing too much trouble. She showed flexibility in making slight changes to our order (wife has wheat allergy). Food when it came was first class. My steak pie was rich with a lovely ale gravy. My wife's mince and tatties...

Stayed for 3 nights all of the staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room was on the top floor and was quiet if a little bit on the small size especially the bathroom........the room was spotlessly clean. We eat in the restaurant all 3 evenings and both of us had a different starter and main each time........the food was very... More
