We didn't stay at the hotel, but were staying locally for a week, and dined at the STar Hotel every evening. The staff were very friendly (and the hotel is dog friendly, so we could take our two mastiffs with us). The food was good value, no frills or french words on the menu. Highly recommended by me.

The hotel was modern in the 70s but makes up for it in service, menu and food. We were spoiled for choice by selection of meals available. When it arrived, huge plateful and really tasty. Couldnt fault it, highly recommend a stay here or even just a meal.

Was a average hotel. Bed covers dirty and hairy. Food amazing and kind staff. Dogs welcome I think that is why our bed was a bit hairy and dirty is because it was a dog and from another person as we didn't let our dog on the bed

The Staff were all very friendly, the service in the Restaurant was excellent and the Bar was equally good. The food was good and the portions were just the right size. The Accommodation was very comfortable. The price for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast for four nights was extremely reasonable This was my second visit and I will be back again.... More

I wanted a reasonably priced overnight where I could arrive "off the hill" in whatever state I would find myself and that is precisely what I got. Soaked and dripping my welcome was fine and the offer of drying my gear was there for the taking. My single room was OK as was the bed, linen, towels and shower, the... More

I never ever write reviews but I felt I had to after a visit for dinner with my partner whilst on holiday. We thought the menu had quite a good selection so we went in. We got a nice greeting from the barman then ordered our food. We didn't wait too long but oh my GOODNESS. The sirloin steak was... More

Very basic hotel and low cost. Location is fine for Cairngorms. Rooms are rather dated and the shower (room 1) certainly needs sorting out. But generally very clean and with friendly staff. Food was similarly basic but perfectly acceptable. All told it was reasonable value for money with no frills.
