Camping in Grantown on Spey, we decided to treat ourselves to Sunday lunch at the Garth Hotel. Our choice from the fairly short menu was excellent: buttery mackerel pate, a generous portion of well-cooked roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and nice crisp vegetables followed by Scottish cheeses served at just the right temperature. The staff were very pleasant... More

The Garth is a compact hotel and the bar can get crowded at times. Staff welcoming,courteous and helpful. Food is excellent although the allowance of £22.50 on a half board deal is less than generous given the menu prices. The rooms in the new rear extension are the best.

Nice folk, good breakfast. That's where the good points end. Poor décor in rooms (ceiling paper peeling) and bathroom could do with a good blitz with cleaning solution (bath had black stains around the tiles). Pricey (over £100 per room per night) not worth the money.

We were told by a local that the Garth Hotel did an "early bird" dinner between 5:30 and 6:30, at 25% off and, though we were staying in another hotel, as we had nothing else planned for that evening of our stay in Grantown we made a reservation. It was an excellent choice! We were seated quickly, presented with our... More

Can't help but love a hotel that has an impressive bagpiper in full regalia playing when we arrived. Very comfortable rooms and nicely appointed common areas, very good food. Staff was very helpful, friendly, and certainly added to the welcoming ambiance of this place. Would have been 5 stars if it weren't for the unusually deep bathtub that some of... More

Having heard Spud the piper in full swing, playing the bagpipes in full regalia (sorry, not sure what the correct term is for his uniform) we popped in to the Garth Hotel to ask about a room for the night. Kenny was very welcoming and even took our picture with Spud, and we found the rest of the staff equally... More

We stayed two nights in this hotel while touring the highlands. We had an excellent evening meal both nights and a really good breakfast freshly cooked to order on both days. The staff are really freiendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. all in all an excellent hotel.

Went for dinner. First time was ok, second a wee bit disappointing, overpriced, ordinary food and a waitress who kept saying "no problem" to every move. Everything a bit plasticky from plastic water jugs to flimsy loo seats. Nice tablecloths though

Booked a party of twelve into the Garth and was very pleased with the whole experience. Very efficient and friendly check in. Excellent rooms, quality restaurant and bar, both staffed by very friendly, local people. The location of the hotel makes all parts of the Cairngorms easy to access. We will be back to sample more of their hospitality.
