Stopped here for dinner with my boyfriend whilst we were on holiday in Nethy bridge at the recommendation of our landlady. What a great recommendation this was! The pub had an amazing atmosphere and the staff were more than accommodating when we asked to eat by the fire in the main room rather than the dining room. There was an... More

I stopped here for night on my recent Lejog ride and loved it. Warm room, comfy bed and super bar with great bar food. What's not to like! The old bridge is well worth a very short walk to it. The Wildcat beer is a great pint.

I have just returned from a few days staying in the Cairn Hotel I can't thank the staff and Gareth the owner for making my stay such a pleasant experience. If I'm in the area in the future I shall certainly be staying in the Cairn Hotel.

The location is stunning, the staff are super friendly and so accommodating. It was like stepping into a home from home. I,m Vegan and Gareth and the team made sure... More

Just had a 5 night stay with my daughter. Warm welcome, friendly staff, comfortable room & cleaned every day. Breakfast was great. Always well presented & plenty on offer. A great example of Scottish hospitality. Hope to see you again soon. Sue & Rebecca.

Love love love this place. It hasn't changed at all since I last visited 10 yrs ago and that is a good thing. A proper rustic Highland Inn with great food and the best pub in Scotland. A warm friendly staff and talkative open guests meant we had such a great stay. We will be back on many more occasions.

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
