This is quite a big hotel and in need of a facelift. I think it is used mainly by bus tours. the room was ok - clean enough, comfy enough, a wee bit run down but that didnt bother me. What put me off was 1. the car park is not big enough for the number of cars (and the... More

We recently stayed at this wonderful hotel and it was an absolute pleasure to stay there from the beginning until the end. The staff are extremely helpful and courteous and the lodgings are very clean and well presented and affordable.

The hotel is a bit tired in places, but this is more than made up for by the efficiency and friendliness of the staff, especially in the bar and restaurant areas. The rooms are clean and tidy with good facilities such as flat screen tv's, coffee making etc, however the decor of the whole place is stuck in a time... More

The hotel is in desperate need of a face lift but that is the least of there worries. The food reminded me of school dinners at primary. The mashed potato tasted like powdered mash and the veg was full of water. As soon as you finished a course the plate was taken away within seconds, the next course arrived in... More

For the price you pay the room is not bad at all! Its quite big, clean and beds are comfy. The hallways look dated but for something more upmarket you would have to pay more. The shower wasnt poerful at all so took a bit longer to have a shower. Staying here is fine, 10 minute drive to Aviemore. But... More

We stayed here for a weekend while visiting Aviemore for the Harley Davidson rally. Our room was comfortable & clean. We arrived on the Friday and decided to eat in the hotel restaurant that evening before heading in to Aviemore for the rally. The service we received was out of this world, our waiter was very polite, quick & very... More

Had an overnight stay on a DB&B summer deal. Hotel a bit dated but the room was a good size, clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and meals were fine. For what we paid we have no complaints. Newtonmore and surrounding areas are lovely.

Spent a couple of days staying here B&B. We had a triple room and had booked here as they allowed us to have our dog. The room was good sized, clean and comfortable if a little dated. The rest of the hotel is also a little dated but in good condition and pleasant. We ate in the bar and the... More
