Reading some reviews before our stay I did wonder what our room would be like. After checking in we were taken to our room through the ballroom and downstairs and this did nothing to stop me wondering what the room would be like. When the door opened we were shown to our room which was a suite - living room,... More

The hotel is a beautiful old building and the room we had was really nice. The bathroom was spotlessly clean but the food let them down badly, the breakfast was supposed to be a buffet breakfast but one of the kitchen staff served the food and he was very sparing with the portion he served and the food was stewed...

Decided to go here as very little choice in Kingussie for an evening meal. Looked very nice from outside, but went downhill rapidly after entering " Gillies".We had already reserved a table. We placed our order and then had to wait over 3/4 hour for our first course to arrive. Knew something was wrong when staff kept peeping round corner... More

We called in for dinner on two evenings whilst staying at Kingussie. On both occasions, we were impressed with the quality of the food and the pleasant, helpful staff. Great value for money - heartily recommended.

This was one of the stops along our travels during a study-abroad trip to Northern Ireland and Scotland in summer 2015. We stopped here after leaving Glasgow heading north through the highlands and up the coast to the ferry over to the Orkney Islands. I am a huge history buff and I loved everything about this hotel! My roommate and... More

The people on reception were a delight and always willing to help but that's as far as it goes. The toilet in our room was held together with duct tape. The television had more snow on it than the cairngorm mountains. And the breakfast was very dry as it had been sitting a while. The lobby area was lovely. But... More

I stayed at this hotel a few years ago to do some hillwalking in the local area. The room was comfortable and clean, as you would expect from a hotel of this size and rating. My problem was the way breakfast service was handled. Nearly all guests were seated in the large dinging hall and were required to queue up... More

The hotel was quite tired, and the lift was extremely slow. Overall it was value for money as it was bed and breakfast and a 4 course dinner. The food was very nice and they served some of the best haggis I have ever had. The hotel would be a great base for sightseeing. The staff were all very friendly.

Cold, unfriendly uninspiring bland and lack luster experience. Mediorce food from a ill thought of menu. Typical fare of a big establishment that considers bought in cheap n cheerful to be better than having skilled inspired staff. The hotel caters for coach parties and mass catering and it shows. The food was not even filling let alone hot nor tasty.... More

The hotel looks good at first, Queen Victoria is a former guest, but if she was there now she would not be amused, the room was quite small and the shower room was tiny, the dining room was catering mainly for coach parties, the first meal was poor and the rest average, there was not enough staff and the organisation...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Duke of Gordon Hotel and for your comments. As previously mentioned Touring coach groups are a main satay of our business and gives us the opportunity to remain open throughout the year. With regard to the entertainment within the hotel all of our advertising states the 'we provide entertainment most evenings'.... More
