Spent 4 nights at this hotel. The staff were friendly and very helpful particularly with my requests for any special dietary requirements. The public areas were in good condition and were clean. My room was in need of a little TLC but was clean and the bed was comfortable. Cons to staying here: the more motel feel with having to... More

If you want a cheap break in the Highlands,the Highland hotel in Newtonmore is good. Although it is a bit dated the room was very clean and had everything we needed. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We got dinner one night that was okay. For what we paid I have no complaints -apart from the Internet. I knew we... More

The staff were mainly European and each and every one of them was polite and very helpful. Our room was lovely and warm with lashings of... More

Stayed two nights with an Itison voucher initially as a base for skiing. Could not believe the tariff displayed at desk as £120 for a double room, nor that there were still places like this; Yards and yards of swags and tails in the public rooms! In serious need of bringing into the 21st century. However it was spacious, warm... More

Had a 3 night stay at the Highlander hotel in Newtonmore. This was such a comfortable hotel to be staying in, with the staff being so friendly and pleasant. The food was really really good and would recommend it to anyone.

A step back in time to the set of the 70's soap? The decor would make you think so. Luckly the rest of the experience wasn't so 'wobbly', The food was simple but well cooked with a hearty breakfast. The whole hotel was clean and comforable. The staff were helpful and the service was good. The sound proofing between the... More

The hotel is a bit dated (retro?) but work is being done on it which did not impact on our stay. Had our dogs with us but plenty of areas to walk... More

We had our small dog and walked in the surrounding hills. Great place to go if you ski, there is ski rental and ski lessons available in hotel. We... More

if first impressions count then this hotel should take a good look at its kerb appeal. The place is dingy needs investment not a place i would stay , lasted all of 20 mins before we handed the keys in and left. We will not be back.

Room was clean,dinner was a proper plate full of simple home cooked food and cooked breakfast was very good. The hotel is dated but all staff very nice especially the... More
