At the cairngorm hotel you'll get a great room at a competitive price. The bed is huge, the bathroom is very good and on room facilities are fine. The restaurant operates on a formula of much food for little money, which is nice for a night. However the second night you're looking for something else than a huge stack of... More

My husband took me to this hotel as a birthday treat and what a treat it was. This hotel has lots of character something which is missing in the chain hotels. Lovely room with the biggest bed I've ever slept in. We had a delightful meal in the busy restaurant . Breakfast next morning was very pleasant, smoked haddock and... More

We mostly had such a great stay here a few weeks ago, great room, great food, fantastic friendly pub with good atmosphere and good music. Everything was going well and it was shaping up to be the perfect end to our Speyside Way walk. However, after such a fun night in the bar we were heading up the stairs past... More

My wife, daughter and I stayed at this hotel for two nights, Friday and Saturday, whilst attending a wedding in Aviemore. The hotel was very busy whilst we were there with a wide range of ages all of whom appeared to be having a great time. The outstanding feature of the hotel was the staff, all of whom appeared to...

I took a spur of the moment two day break on my own in Aviemore to do some photography. I wanted a good hotel in the centre and my research on TripAdvisor pointed me to the Cairngorm Hotel. I telephoned them directly and got a good price, far easier than faffing about on the internet to book. It's good to... More

This had to be the most unwelcoming reception I have ever witnessed first hand. My crime????? Entering this establishments public bar with an 11" tall spaniel. The barman was over evicting us before the door had closed. !!!!!! If it wasn't so pathetic it would have been funny. They have just alienated every dog owner in Scotland..........

Stayed here for 2 nights recently and all really enjoyed our stay. the room was enormous, lovely and clean with everything you could need. Tea/coffee making facilities, LCD TV with freeview, lovely view from front of hotel, comfy beds, desk etc etc. The only meals we took at the hotel were breakfast so can't comment on anything other than that....
