Hotel clean & friendly. receptionist on arriving made us welcome even as the place was very busy. Bar very busy & noisy no room to sit but drinks could be taken into a quite area. Dinner is very busy staff are very efficient & quick friendly service nothing to much for them. plenty of choice of food for all meals.

We booked this hotel for 2 nights on the 31st December, it was really overpriced for the room we got. Room was clean but towels had a fooshty smell and bedding was uncomfortable. I understand it's a busy time of year. Can't comment on staff as it was so busy but morning staff were lovely and attentive. The locals bar... More

Stayed here for one night, and in advance I sent an email asking if staff could put some wine and a note in the room as a surprise for my fiance (we had gotten engaged the month before but hadn't time to celebrate owing to other commitments). On arrival we had been allocated a beautiful room facing the front of... More

The Cairngorm Hotel is ideally situated right in the very centre of the town opposite the train station. Bus stops right outside. Ample car parking and in the middle of it all. We popped in for an evening meal after studying the menu displayed outside. There is a public bar decked out in sports and local memorabilia. Large TV's for... More

Stayed over on a business trip. My room was 125, which was a rather large single room and very comfy bed to boot, well it must have been because i lay down at 7pm and woke up at 7am, fully recharged and ready for the day ahead. I did have a tussle with the shower in the morning but i... More

We didn't stay here, but we frequented the pub and restaurant almost every night. Great atmosphere, excellent food (especially the traditional highland buffet!). The pub had great entertainment on every night, and friendly people. We saw a great band called Tweed, and came almost last in the quiz, but still really enjoyed it. If we come back to Aviemore we...
