Recently stayed here with my family (Mother, Father, Brother and Grandfather) as part of a package coach and railway holiday around the Scottish Highlands. The hotel is in a great situation with easy access to the the nearby Cairngorm Mountain Ranges, Inverness, Loch Ness and other areas of interest. The rooms are very basic and need some redecorating, cracks, a... More

Spent 2 nights at the Highlander Hotel recently and can only endorse the comments made from others which are positive and meritted. The rooms are spacious and clean and the food is good too. Staff are industrious and friendly. I was able to negotiate a good deal which undoubtedly made the trip north worthwhile. Only thing I found lacking was... More

Enjoyed stay. Staff helpful and pleasant. Decor needs updated. Bar meal lovely as was full Scottish breakfast. Apart from highland folk museum which is worth a visit and the wildcat trail there isn't much else in Newtonmore. However Aviemore is about 15 mins by car and there is lots to do within a 30 min car journey.

Stayed two nights at the Highlander Hotel. Decent sized rooms, comfortable bed, good meals and very friendly, helpful staff. The hotel is a bit dated and the room above had very squeaky floorboards but these are very minor things. I would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Booked with the hotel directly for the spring deal offering dbb for £69 which seemed like a good deal .... on arrival hotel seemed quite tired and car park in need of resurfacing (which seems to have been...

We were disappointed to read your review. The offer includes dinner from our standard table d'hote menu, however if you had mentioned that you weren't keen on the choices you could have used your meal allocation to choose from our lounge menu. We have started a refurbishment programme in our bathrooms but as you can appreciate with 85 rooms the... More

Main areas very outdated. However large and clean, room was quiet despite being on the main road. Shower extremely small. Beds are new and some furniture. Cupboard area in hall spacious. Food was just edible in my opinion but it was more or less free for 2 nights for 99. This should be the standard price for this hotel though,... More

Stayed on a Saturday night through a groupon deal with my partner and daughter and have to say we had a lovely stay, food and accommodation were well above what we expected (due to what we paid) and would highly recommend this hotel. Bar prices were good as well and free wifi in the lounge for the kids too

We stayed at this hotel using a Groupon voucher for 2 nights with dinner on the 1st night and a bottle of bubbly in the room - I wish we hadn't bothered. On arrival, I was instantly reminded of a 1970s style motel, driving between the reception and the accommodation to the the car park which was so full of... More
