Located directly across the street from the train station, literally, it made is easy for those of us traveling by public transit. Bus stop is also very nearby. Attractive Scottish hotel with a mountain cabin feel offering a full service restaurant and pub on premises. Plenty of parking. Very strict check in policy, never before 2pm, but was able to... More

We stayed at the Cairngorm Hotel at the beginning and having completed the Speyside Way. The first night was the night of the European Cup Final and also the Heineken Cup rugby final. The hotel was packed. We only waited some twenty minutes for a table. Our food order was taken almost immediately and our drinks arrived within a blink... More

We stayed here for one night in a family room, when we arrived the place was busy and was easy to park etc. The check in lady was lovely and when we saw our family room our daughter was soo happy to be sleeping in the princess turret! After being in the room 15 mins it became apparent that we... More

We spent 3days at the Cairngorm in May, we were pleased with our rooms, and the food was excellent. There was a good selection of hot and cold breakfast, and the evening meal was good too, especially the buffet on the Thursday night, there was a huge variety, with something for everyone. The staff were always friendly and helpful, and... More

The staff are very helpful and informative and they offer great service to everyone. The food and bar area are excellent, well worth a visit when in this area. We were lucky and had a great weekend with the weather, and made good use of their beer garden facilities.

It's hard to fault this hotel on most things. The rooms, food, location, decor were all good. The speed and efficiency of the service was excellent. The entire staff though, was completely disengaged. It was the oddest experience, nobody smiled, chatted or even said good morning. I don't know if there was some kind of work to rule? it was...

Brilliant place to visit in the Highlands - sometimes when you enter you think - Oh no - its busy - it will be awful - but hey presto it is like a finely oiled machine - you are welcomed sat down - menus handed - drinks ordered in the blink of an eye - then time to choose your... More
