I was recently on holiday with my boyfriend and his family and we decided to stop in by the Cairn Hotel in Carrbridge for a few drinks. My boyfriends parents had visited before and had told us how impressed they were so I was eager to see for myself. Well, it did not disappoint! As soon as we entered we... More

We have stayed here on many occasions en route to Orkney and always want to stay longer. Last visit was just before and just after Christmas. As always, the staff were friendly and welcoming, and the rooms are well catered for heating wise with self controlled electric heaters. It's good to have a bar in such a small place, and... More

I have been coming here for a number of years due to the charm of the place. The rooms are not all that special. But, it is quite cheap so cannot expect too much. The bar / eating place is so beautiful and rustic. It is a really nice setting and the staff and locals are lovely and friendly.

Booked last minute through late rooms for only £35.00 bed and breakfast. That in itself is very good value, but the hotel is also a very welcoming village pub with at least 3 'real ales' on hand pump. My room was very comfortable with a basic en-suite that was fine for my one night stay. I did not have a... More

Spotted here for food and pints. Couldn't fault either. Portions were the perfect size and great little atmosphere in the country pub. Very clean and we were sitting in beside the fire. Staff very attentive and friendly. Looking forward to visiting again!

Very reasonably priced, has got a great little pub with open fire, kind locals & their dogs and fantastic food for both evening meal and the cooked breakfast. The hotel is a great find. It is clean, has friendly owners, a great pub and we try and go at least once a year.

Stayed at the Cairn Hotel for one night while on a trip snowboarding at the Cairngorm Mountain. We stayed in the Garten room which was on the small side but very clean and cosy. Evening meal was delicious and very well presented. I chose the smoked haddock macaroni and would definitley recommend! All the staff were very friendly and welcoming.... More

We booked at short notice for one night only and were very impressed with the standards we found. The hotel is right on the main road and our room faced onto it but we were not disturbed in any way. When we checked in we were given a larger room than expected and found ourselves in a family room which... More
