Stayed overnight Thu/Fri 7/8 August. Double room with breakfast £70. Not a particularly warm welcome from a young woman who "was not used to checking people in" and did the absolute minimum in showing us to our room. Lock on the door very difficult - door didn't fit properly. Reported to the waitress at dinner who "would pass it on"... More

Not much going on in Carrbridge, but it worked well for a midweek quick stay. Host was friendly. Rooms were basic, but clean. Nice to have food and bar right downstairs. We ate in the pub and had a good dose of pub fare. Not much else to do in town in the evening. We had a lovely walk in... More

I love the Scottish summer- it's my favourite day of the year! It's also a big disadvantage though, because so many people in the Highlands flock to Landmark Adventure Park. Stupidly, we did the same. Landmark was SO busy, with a 45 minute queue to enter (for non season ticket holders) - and lengthy waits for most of the attractions.... More

Evening Meal and breakfast very good. Helpful staff. Room rather small, very little space around the bed with limited access to the wardrobe. Bathroom very small really only fit for one person at a time. Rural location.

Booked into this hotel on Saturday 26 July for 1 night B&B. Only booked on the Friday evening and was pleased to be allocated a double room. £50 which included me bringing Kaos with me who is a boxer. We checked in at 3 pm. The checkin staff were very friendly. The room was at the back of the hotel,... More

We did not stay in hotel...just had meal. Food had probably once been very nicely cooked but when served was dry and looked re heated. Staff pleasant enough and clearly working hard. My main reason for posting this review is to say that I would not have eaten in pub if i had visited the loos first. Ladies was grimey...really... More

We were stuck for accommodation on a Saturday night when everything was booked out or too expensive. Cairn hotel were nice enough to give us a single room for 2 people without breakfast. It was a nice room with comfy bed and little sink. Enough room for one of us to sleep on the floor.

Was in Carrbridge visiting and it was suggested the Cairn as a place for a meal. Sat in the "conservatory" area windows nice shame about rest of décor. We were given (very stained and grubby)menus quickly but took another 20 minutes to get someone to take our order. The mains were OK both priced around £9 each. The pudding (sticky... More

Visited Landmark so stayed for 1 night with other half n 2 kids. Food was lovely, room was clean and spacious. Staff were all very friendly and polite. Kids got some DVDs to watch which kept them amused for the evening. Great breakfast in the morning ready for the day ahead. Would recommend and will return.
