“Double room with breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

The staff were friendly and helpful.However in the cramped ensuite there was more species of mould growing in there than a laboratory also around the bedroom window.the breakfast was really good.shame because for the price had there not been all that mould(no exaggeration) our stay would have been good

Just arrived home from 3 nights at the Mackenzie's highland inn. Don't usually write comments on here but felt it necessary. We had a fantastic time, everyone of the staff made us feel extremely welcome. The food was excellent and great value. A particular thanks is in order for the lady who cooked our breakfast she was brill. This place was perfect for our skiing trip, 5 minute drive to the slopes, complimentary breakfast and cheap rooms. Would highly recommend this place to stay

We visited Mackenzies Highland Inn this summer for a 2 night stay while discovering the area. Amenities are basic as expected for a budget stay, and a nice clean room. The bar has a good selection of beers, and advertised themed food nights every week. Although we didn't find time to sample any, we did have a beer or 2 served in welcoming surroundings. If breakfast was anything to go by, the meal selection will be a definite to sample on our next visit. A great wee place in beautiful surroundings.

Me and my son stayed here for 3 nights and thought the value for money was outstanding. The breakfast was always spot on with a good choice. The bar is one of the best stocked bars I've ever seen. Staff were friendly and helpful. They do meal deals on weekday nights. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed 2 nights in Feb for skiing. Price was £20 pp including breakfast. This place is a good find if you want a cheap hotel in a good location. Room was OK, a bit cramped, good TV, and the bed was large and comfy. Breakfast was great and staff were friendly. Worst thing was the bathroom, probably, which does function but really needs updating.
I will definitely book again. You do get what you pay for, sure, but this will suit anyone wanting cheap clean accommodation in central Aviemore and a good breakfast.

Having read some reviews we were a bit worried about what we were letting oursleves in for but we need not have been! We stayed in a 4 bed dormitory with a private bathroom - hostel style. The room was basic but very clean and had extra stuff not usually included in a bunk room (toiletries, tea-making facilites with shortbread biscuits and an abundance of tea and coffee :) a range of towels and a television).

We paid a very low price which included breakfast and this was absolutely delicious and very filling! Infact I cannot fault the food and would recommend the Mackenzies Inn for this reason alone!! We ate there the first night after a long day travelling, and didn't eat in another restaurant for our entire stay because the food was so good! All the meals were exceptionally reasonably priced and the bar is well stocked with something to suit everyone. The staff were also very friendly and happy to help which made our stay comfortable and homely.

Location is right in the centre of town, 3 minutes from the train station and bus link.

I cannot comment on the other room types, but considering we stayed in the cheapest room available I can't think that they would be any less than what I have mentioned above. The only thing I would say is that if you are looking for a quiet evening on a Sunday, please be aware that there is Karaoke and it can be quite loud (but it was a good laugh!).

Would definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for somewhere cheap and friendly which serves food not out of place at a high end restaurant!

Room Tip: Rooms 6 7 8 are away from the bar and therefore quieter

After reading reviews was a bit wary of what we were booking ,hotel is not 5 star and doesn't claim to be if you are wanting a fancy hotel then go pay the prices ! This hotel is cheap, excellent base , excellent food ,hearty full English breakfast to set you on your way !
Rooms bit tired but let's face it your not there to stay in your room . Staff were very nice and helpful and food was massive portions and very reasonable priced .
Would I stay here again ? Definitely for the money for 2 adults and one child ! For 2 nights ,I would have spent double for one night ! Great wee hotel ,thanks again to all the staff x
