We ate here. Our previous night out had been to Winking Owl and I can categorically say that Cairngorm Hotel was a much nicer place to eat. It was friendly, unpretentious and welcoming. The food was hearty and delicious. I had the lamb and barley stew and I was mightily impressed. I would definitely eat there again

We didn't stay in this hotel, but after somebody recommended it for food, we decided to have dinner here. It was Valentine's Day, and as we hadn't thought about that slight problem in advance we were a bit concerned about how busy it might be. We walked in at about 7pm, were told it would be about 25-30 minute wait,... More

Having popped in many times as a walking guest to the restaurant, my parents bought us a nights stay here as they were staying to so we could have a family weekend together. We stayed in Room 101. The first thing that was noticeable was the huge beds. The room has all the usual hotel services that you would expect.... More

I did not stay at the hotel - which looks jolly good, if you like the clichéd tartan & broadsword theme - but did eat and drink there. Dinner was good and wholesome but not in any sense refined or memorable. Tourist food. Service pretty good too. The hotel offers a Highland Buffet on Thursday which looks good and is... More

On checking my Cairngorm season ticket benefits I decided to try out the cuisine. The hotel is very Scottish but done very tastefully. It has a lovely cosy, warm welcoming feel. Staff are very cheery, friendly and attentive. The food was very fresh, beautifully presented and very tasty. Will definitely be returning. The menu is very varied with a great... More

If you are looking for a pleasant hotel in Aviemore for a weekend away look no further than this hotel. Very nice and helpful staff and nice rooms. This hotel is especially recommended if you are travelling by train(2 mins from stepping off)

The cairngorm Hotel is my favourite place for a drink and meal in the Highlands. We haven't been here since December 2013 and its nice to see nothing changes, not even the staff! This place just never lets us down, food, drink and atmosphere is always the same and that's why we like it so much. As always the menu... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel on 9th feb for 3 nights and have to say that we thoroughly enjoyed it! We booked the room through a kind and friendly lady called Clare who helped us with questions we had about skiing. 10/10 for customer service! The only negative thing I would say is that the room and... More
