Excellent service in a bar that feels like a pub rather than a hotel lounge. Decent beer and friendly service and good value food (though I think they move you to the coffee shop or restaurant at busy times) Bad weather meant we spent a fair bit of time in here!

Lovely menu, huge portions so don't order too many sides and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it for anyone with kids, without kids, with grandparents, without - just anyone.

Went to the bar for a drink. Bar staff just grunt at you and are unfriendly. Such a shame and embarrassing as I am sure many tourists visit as the hotel has a dominant position in the main high street. Clearly they have become arrogant as they appeared to be busier than most other places!

We didn't stay here on this occasion as the only rooms available were those above the bar. However, we did meet for dinner with colleagues who were resident. There were eleven of us, and the food was really good. The portions are very generous. I challenge you to have room for pudding! Staff were friendly, and there is entertainment (quiz... More

Bed very comfortable! Great 2 nights sleep! Plentiful plug sockets on the walls! Friendly staff. Amazing breakfast as always! One of the best hotel breakfasts we've had! And... More

We always eat here whenever we're in Aviemore and we have never been disappointed. Indeed, we look forward to returning. If only every restaurant in Scotland were half as good! Fast, friendly service. Attentive staff, and manager. Huge selection of dishes on the menu, with prices to suit everyone. Specials for children and the over-60s. Good drinks at reasonable prices,...

The Cairngorm has become a real favourite when going to Aviemore for an overnight. As soon as the snow arrives we book in to make the most of a couple of days on the slopes. It feels like home from home. Always a very friendly welcome from reception and the food is always excellent. Huge menu of choice (the slight... More

Myself and my partner visited here on Sunday night for dinner. Didn't expect much to be honest but we were blown away! We had three courses and each course we had was delicious and very generous portions! The best meal we have had in a very long time and the prices were really reasonable. The service was great, the waitress... More

We spent 3 days in Aviemore in mid December, weather was beautiful for two days, 4" of snow on the last day. The Cairngorm Hotel is in the middle of town, great location for walking or hiking. The two rooms we had were large, (unusal in Scotland), and warm, and they had an additional space heater if you were really... More

This is a delightful 1860s hotel opposite the railway station in Aviemore of the same date. Good value for money. It is convenient for the Cairngorm National Park with its climbing, walking, skiing, fishing etc. Open fires, stuffed deers' heads, Landseer prints that sort of thing. Swimming pool round the corner. Bedrooms have real baths, quiet, old fashioned and well... More
