OK I admit I only paid £55 for B&B for me, my husband and our dog which was really cheap. Clean room, with every essential provided but I couldn't help but be frustrated at Bespoke Hotels completely missing a trick with this hotel. Called the Highlander, near to Aviemore in the Highlands, there is nothing Scottish about this hotel. When... More

A typical 70s build hotel with a lack of sound proofing. There are 3 blocks for residency all with two floors but no lifts. However I noted that people with limited ability were in the block where there is only a half flight of stairs for going up or down. Rooms basic but clean and in my bathroom you could... More

The Highlander Hotel is a lovely Hotel. The only drawbacks are rather small showers and the hotel is a little out of date decor wise. Also there is no porterage. The staff are excellent and very friendly and the barman Eric raises a few laughs with his stories about catching the Haggis. The hotel is very clean and the food... More

One of the best hotels with good location and friendly staff. Stayed here on way back from Isle of Skye, reached close to midnight but the room was ready with hardly anytime spent in logistics. The Room was an old architecture, well maintained. Definitely worth money and stay. Breakfast was good, the surroundings of the hotel are good as well.

Hotel mainly for coach parties. Check in swift & well organised. Service exceptional - good choice on menu. Basic food but always hot and well presented. When you consider they are serving 150 plus meals at the same time they do a great job. Stayed in room 38 - I think the whole block has been refurbished. New bathroom -... More

Stayed for five days and my Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was neat and tidy, cleaned every day. Food was good even though the restaurant staff were very busy. Sadly lack of entertainment but the company was good . Would definitely stay again if up that way

Stayed here on package break. Room was quite spacious with lots of storage space and large bathroom. Unfortunately we were awakened in the early hours one night by an overflow gushing water outside the room and the noise of the tank refilling. This was quite quickly fixed. The insulation is not great so lots of noise from the guests overhead.... More

They don't like you to arrive until late afternoon if possible but check-in was quick and welcoming. As other reports we had read we found the hotel rather dated and needing a little tlc. The plumbing was noisy and the shower hot and cold. However despite having read recent bad reports we found the food acceptable and edible and the... More
