was up here for a wedding. Great reception, fabulous staff overall. ( hence the very good and not just average).One ok meal ( cod was certainly not fresh). wedding breakfast fabulous. Cake and tea in the afternoon - lovely. Bar staff and entertainment first class. Room clean, 'traditionally' furnished - great bed, but compact in general but didn't stay much... More

Been meaning to write a review about this hotel- we have stayed there on a few rallies over the years. Great value for money. Centre place for the bikers at the Thunder in the Glens. The drinks are well priced- and sitting outside with the band playing was a great experience. Good food. Good location right opposite the railway station

Good food. very nice cream of tomato soup! The haggis lasagne was very tasty. Craving it now! Also very nice selection of beers on draft. Catered to 11 of us on a Saturday whilst a wedding was on and coped well. Would recommend! Previously only been here before for pints whilst waiting on the next train, nice to see it... More

We stayed here for one night, a Saturday when Aviemore was very busy. We were allocated a room at the front which I expected to be very noisy but it wasn't. The room was very comfortable but take note the hotel does not have a lift so if you are on the second floor, which we were, it can be... More

This hotel may not be the latest in chic, but it does everything you want and when you need it. If you come to Aviemore without a car, the hotel, with direct series from London by day and by night, is just across the main street from the station. From the hotel, sightseeing all around Speyside can be undertaken by... More

Second time staying here and will definitely be back again. Stayed for two nights. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was lovely. Our son loved the bagpipe playing every night and the suit of armour at the entrance. Rooms were clean. Great location.

Arrived on spec, asked for double room, price quoted was reasonable so we accepted and made our way to the top floor, and because we packed the kitchen sink nearly had a coronary getting there. Staff very friendly, breakfast fine, bar good atmosphere, check out no problems. Good old fashioned hotel with bags of history.

We visit Aviemore annually and always visit this lovely hotel for the pub and restaurant. The bar area offers a good range of bar food. The sandwiches are huge and great value for money and the beers are certainly not the price they are in London! The restaurant does a fantastic buffet evening where you can sample all the best...
