My husband and I stayed here on spec one night in April. The rooms were spacious and clean, the bed was HUGE and very comfortable. Only small criticism was there was no bath. The owner/manager was very helpful letting us know about the area. A nice well stocked bar and delicious breakfast too.

We were passing through and stopped for lunch. This was absolutely lovely! Chunky veg soup and ham sandwiches - lovely thick soup full of a variety of veg and delicious sandwiches on very fresh wholemeal bread served by very pleasant staff member. And a nice touch we noted - late comers arrived 20 minutes after lunch finished but were quickly... More

I was one of the party of three who stayed on 11th March and it is apparent that the management team have watched too much of "Gone with the wind" as ....frankly, they do not give a damn, as witnessed by the reply to the comments by BarnacleScotland, whose comments I support totally. I cannot recommend this hotel and think... More

I don't believe that Trip Advisor is the appropriate platform to get into petty arguments and it is such a pity that this reviewer and his friend did not have the social ability to voice their concerns whilst they were at our establishment. There was plenty of time to do so,especially as I kept the bar open late for this... More

Three of us travelled from Wemyss Bay North Ayrshire to The Glen Hotel Newtonmore on Tuesday 11th March as part of a rail journey to the Kyle of Lochalsh. Our accommodation was booked in advance with written confirmation received and deposit paid. This hotel is a small country establishment with its foot planted firmly on the Scottish 'tourist trail' being... More

We stayed here for one night, the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had dinner in the hotel which was excellent-I especially enjoyed the fish pie. All the staff were very friendly and polite, would definetly stay again if in the area, just to sample the food again!

Kim, Chris and David made us feel very welcome. Last month I decided I'd take my son and his friend skiing in Aviemore. I phoned the Glen Hotel and Kim was very kind and helpful in allowing me to reserve a room over the phone. She had a very professional and friendly manner about her which was great. We arrived...

We ate at the Glen twice and also attended their quiz night. Loved everything we ate especially the Arbroath Smoky Fishcakes and the Black Pudding starters. The children's menu was great just smaller versions of the adult meals and not the usual nuggets and fish fingers. The staff were brilliant, really friendly and courteous. Couldn't fault anything at all. Go... More

We had dinner here and were well impressed with the amount of choice on the menu. The lamb shank was delicious and the fajitas were very nice too. Prices were reasonable. The staff were extremely friendly. I would definitely recommend it- great choice and good, decent priced food,

A pleasant friendly pub, with a good range of drinks. Had a great time there at Hogmanay! They have quiz nights fairly often which were good fun. The staff are friendly and chatty. A more traditional pub in Newtonmore than Braeriach.
