My wife and myself Poped into what was a very busy bar on Friday night. We were just looking for a bar snack. The barman was very helpful and offered us should we want to eat in the restaurant. After looking at the menu in what I think was the hotel reception we both decided that we would eat there.... More

Not much going on in Aviemore on a Tuesday night in November. Most restaurants were empty. Not so the Cairngorm which had a buzz about it. For good reason too. The service and food in the restaurant was beyond expectations. We'll be back very soon.

Stayed as part of a ski weekend (that never really came off but that's a different story!) and had a lovely meal in the hotel restaurant. Room was of a good size and the bed was very comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Location is great - right in the centre of Aviemore and we had no issues getting parked.... More

Very welcoming staff, we were shown through to the dining room, excellent service and amazing food the venison and chorizo pasta dish was brilliant... More

Very Scottish, it's far from modern but we loved it. Room had sloping ceilings and a massive bed. Breakfast was huge and sets you up a day exploring everything Aviemore has to offer. It is an ideal location for an evening out, however if you don't want to leave the hotel the restaurant is again charming and food was good.

We came with 5 adults and 1 child. All had mains and dessert. Could not fault any of the food or drinks. The service was very good too polite and welcoming and having a laugh even with the kid. Will come again when next up this way as the food is well worth paying for.

We recently had a two day break at this hotel and were very impressed with everything they had to offer. Although a fairly old hotel it has character and is very well maintained.From our check in at the desk to check out two days later we were treated to a first class stay. Hotel staff were courteous, polite and very... More

An older hotel with lots of character and very well maintained throughout. Staff were always pleasant and on the ball. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent and very good value. Impressive reception area with a wide carpeted wooden staircase leading upwards. I would stay here again and firmly recommend to others.

Enjoyed another excellent stay at the Cairn last week. Dinner in the hotel restaurant is always good and typically Scottish fayre. The Highland buffet on a Thursday evening is a must and great value at £13.95 fro two courses. Wine is well priced and does not break the bank unlike some other establishments. Service superb as always under the watchful... More
