A fine hotel in a lovely part of Scotland, but needs a bit of work and new ideas. We were also very dissapointed at our room allocation as we were given a room directly at the top of the stairs (108). We were travelling with our son (1 year old) so had an early dinner and headed upstairs to put... More

My sister & I stayed for 2 nights at the end of July and were made to feel very welcome by all of the staff. The bar man & young Spanish waiter were extremely pleasant & friendly!

Stayed here Tuesday, 5th august. Last stayed eight years ago and noted all the public areas were all redecorated and very pleasant - lots of sofas, chairs and period furniture which suited the style of the hotel. Bar space quite small but quirky and good atmosphere. Dining area is new in relation to the hotel but suits the needs of... More

Took the advice of another reviewer and booked a superior room. It was a large room with a great view. There was a lovely bowl of fruit, robes and slippers waiting for us. We can't say enough good things about the staff. The wait staff in the restaurant were amazing. They were very attentive in spite being very busy. Manuel... More

Just returned from a weekend at this hotel. On arrival, the reception was manned by a young man whose English was limited, although they could see he was struggling, 2 other reception staff stood by and watched. When one of them did decide to help, she did so grudgingly and her manner was rude to say the least. We were... More

We found our room quite dirty particularly the bathroom floor. The hand basin was badly cracked and I felt it could be a source of germs. The staff in the dining room were in some cases very rude. I had quite an argument with one young Scottish boy, Donny I think could have been his name. They seem incapable of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Old world charm at the newly restored Craiglynne Hotel. Our Victorian granite hotel, situated under the majestic Cairngorms, has just been restored and refurbished to the highest standards. With 82 stylish rooms and superb grounds, relaxing here during your stay is irresistible; however we also highly recommend visiting the beautiful villages, mountains, rivers and forests nearby. After a day exploring, there's nothing better than sinking into an armchair by one of our roaring log fires to share stories of Lochness, Inverness and the hugely popular whisky trail. When you are looking for hotels in Grantown-on-Spey, near Aviemore, stay with us and be one of the first to enjoy our restored hotel. ... more   less
