There is no way we can fault any aspect of our experience at Cairngorm Hotel. The service was pristine, so hospitable and couldn't do enough for us. E hotel itself had so much character and charm and a lovely atmosphere. Extremely child friendly with a fantastic menu catering for everyone! All our meals were beautiful and tasty and the sandwich... More

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Cairngorm Hotel. Although it was quite full due to a wedding party, we got a nice wee table in a corner. The service was great and really quick, despite the restaurant being very busy. The food was delicious and the selection was really good. Dessert was even better, we thought. What we really... More

We came here on our last night in Aviemore and the waiter Alan quickly welcomed our party of 9, rearranging tables to accommodate us. We were served quickly and efficiently and our meal was delicious. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their main course and the desserts were amazing. A special mention again to our waiter Alan, nothing was too much trouble and... More

Highly recommended for its architecture and historic charm. The afternoon deal 1200-1700 was a great deal for soup and sandwich for £6.75. It arrived promptly and was a harty scottish broth and cheese and pickle soup which was the best meal I had in aviemore!

Came for dinner with wife and two kids (7 and 6). Have eaten here many times before but not for the last 12 months. Glad to see that the previous high standards of food, service and value remain. Nothing too much trouble, food great and good value as ever. Really hard to see past the Cairn for a decent meal... More

Went for lunch after a ride on the Strathspey Steam Railway opposite. Liked the fact that the bar is for drinking and the dining room for eating. Very efficient staff and service. Had the venison goulash which was excellent. Recommended.
