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

We had a two night stay here with Dinner bed and breakfast. The room was functional with the usual TV and other stuff. It's very quiet, so you should have no trouble getting to sleep. The Dinner was average fare, with a noticeably small Dinner Plate - I suppose to make the dinner look more than it was? The WI-FI... More

We have taken on board your comments about the Wifi coverage it is something we are currently looking into. We hope that these points will no deter you from making... More

Typical motor lodge-type hotel with large tour groups. Clean room although shower didn't get that hot. Nice lounge for customers with free wifi. Tasty full cooked breakfast included in price of room. Good service and friendly staff. Would stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
For true Highland hospitality come to the Highlander, a hotel renowned for its good food and warm welcome. The hotel is an ideal base for touring the North of Scotland with mountain ranges, forests, lochs and river valleys waiting to be explored. Wind down in our inviting restaurant serving an array of dishes made from locally sourced produce. Perhaps a wee dram from the bar would suit; choose a whisky from one of the many local distilleries for which this area is famous for throughout the world. ... more   less
