We always come here for a meal when we are visiting Aviemore and are always pleased. It can just be a wee bit busy near 6pm so if you have children it would be better to go there slightly earlier to avoid waiting.

Friendly staff, beautiful exterior, average restaurant, worn down room, AND VERY LOUD until 3:00 AM on a Saturday night. The room was not air conditioned so we had to keep the windows open, hence no hiding from the noise. Could hear every intoxicated/bombed conversation. Not ideal for a young family.

This was my first stay at the Cairngorm though had previously visited the restaurant. Overall our stay was excellent. The location is great, right opposite the train station/bus stop and right in the heart of Aviemore. We stayed in a triple room which had three proper beds (no sofa bed) and was very comfortable. The bathroom was slightly dated but... More

There's many hotels in this area, though most in Aviemore village itself appear to be owned by a large group. Cairngorm is independent and all the better for it. Great location right on the main street, free parking, free Wi-Fi, and a bar and restaurant that caters to locals as well as guests are all good signs. Staff are friendly... More

We go to Aviemore twice a year and always visit The Cairngorm Hotel. The food is always excellent and flavoursome. Staff are welcoming and friendly. I would highly recommend to anyone planning a trip to Aviemore.

The Cairngorm Hotel is in an imposing old building opposite the station. A old establishment hotel Our room was on the 2nd floor no lift. Welcome to the 19th century! Our room and the traditional Scottish Breakfast were Ok

My husband and I decided to get away for a few days and feel very fortunate to have came upon this fantastic hotel. So much so, that we decided to come back for another stay on our return from Pitlochry. This is a traditional hotel, so all the bedrooms vary in size and layout and have their own appeal. Our...

My partner and I stayed in Aviemore for two nights in June. The hotel staff were very welcoming when we checked in. We were on the top floor in a small double room. I was told when booking we would be in a smaller room so was glad I was told of this otherwise I may have been dissapointed -... More

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
