Well situated in the centre of Aviemore the hotel has all the required facilities for a comfortable stay, although in need of refurbishment. Our twin room had a good shower, important for two wet hillwalkers. Dinner and breakfast are of a good standard. The restaurant does not take dinner reservations, but we were shown straight to a table at 8.00... More

We stayed in The Cairngorm Hotel in Aviemore for 2 nights, as a family of 4. We were given a family room at the 2nd floor, which looked like attic. Room was very small to take a double bed and another double/sofa bed for the kids. We could barely move around. Luckily we found excellent, hot, weather when we visited... More

We stayed at the Cairngorm Hotel for 1 night as part of a touring holiday in Scotland. The hotel is in an old grand building but is starting to show it's age and is perhaps due a refurbishment. Our room was large and comfortable albeit a little old fashioned. The staff - especially the lady on reception - were very... More

We stayed in The Cairngorm Hotel in Aviemore for 2 nights recently. Great welcome at reception & all the staff were friendly & very accommodating. Food was fantastic and the Manager went out his way to find us a table for dinner. Well worth a visit.

Went for a meal with family (wife and 2 kids under 7) on Friday night. Service from our waitress impeccable, nothing too much trouble. She showed flexibility in making slight changes to our order (wife has wheat allergy). Food when it came was first class. My steak pie was rich with a lovely ale gravy. My wife's mince and tatties...

We eat in the restaurant all 3 evenings and both of us had a different starter and main each time........the food was very... More

We have been passing through Aviemore for over 30 years so have stopped here for lunch before (generous sandwiches which judging by the crowded bar is still the case) but this is our first time staying in it. The staff were all exceptionaly friendly and we would come back here again. We were out very late on the Saturday night... More

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.
