We were 3 people staying just for one night. Appart from the mouldy jam served during breakfast, we were charged twice: first charging on our card the previous days before our stay, and after, as we couldn't checked our account details because there were no internet facilities, they asked for a payment with cash. Since August, we've been trying to... More

I stayed with two children in July 2014. Firstly the good points......Tony the owner is a really friendly and helpful guy. As with other reviews, he told us where to eat, and pointed us in the direction of local attractions. The breakfast room and common areas in the hotel were clean and very tastefully decorated with modern artwork. The breakfast,... More

Rule #1 for a stay at the Ossian Hotel: Do not look at its website. You will be disappointed when the reality of the hotel kicks in which has little to do with the warm and luxurious atmosphere that is advertised there. Only the price is luxurious, and we have not found anything warm there. Rule #2: Upon arrival go... More

Relaxed and comfortable place to stay, a good, simple B&B. Tony is most welcoming and helpful, very tasty continental breakfast and comfortable rooms. Excellent location for the Cairngorms and Aviemore. Many thanks for the stay

Stopped off here with our two dogs on our journey south following the A9 being closed. Host was friendly and although the rooms were all booked he assured us that if the road didn't reopen he'd be able to sort something out for us. The road opened in time for us to continue on our journey so didn't stay over,... More

Considering that they are in the process of major rennovations, this was a very pleasant experience. Although there was no hot breakfast available, the cold selection more than met our needs. I am sorry that future guests will be going self catering but this will not put us off visiting again. Many thanks Tony, for your hospitality and good luck... More

Charming bnb with a very friendly host. He knows everything about where to go and what to do in the surrounding area. It will be an even better place to stay at after the new rooms are done. Stay here.

The room smelt, the decoration was very shabby and the bed was squeaky and lumpy. I could not stay here and they have refused me a refund. I was advised at the door that there would be no hot breakfast and the restaurant is closed. Not up to the standard one expects when paying £47 a night.
