“ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2010

Good central location but arrive early as there is restricted parking within premises. Room was adequate but the pillows were past their sell by date. Breakfast was disappointing with salty bacon and poor quality sausages. This was surprising since Aviemore has a first class butchers' shop with lots of top quality sausages and black puddings. Be prepared to get up early as breakfast is srtictly at 8.30 am.

Only just found I can reply to guests comments.
Can I just correct some of the points made.
We have parking spaces for 6 cars to accomodate our 6 rooms, this has been officially passed by the planning and roads department, you must have enough parking spaces.(actually you asked to leave your car in our property for an hour or more after check out to go shopping, which was not a problem)
Extra pillows can be given if required, 4 pillows per double bed is standard but if ,more are needed, no problem. We have our breakfast bacon and sausages delivered from the local highland companies and our eggs from highland farms. Breakfasts are a matter of taste, we do try to accomodate as much as possible. We need to have a time schedule for breakfast to ensure all are catered for.

Perfectly average, clean, with fairly comfortable bed. RIght on the main street, which made it a little noisy for a light sleeper. Breakfast was fair. Convenient to shops and food.

A lovely friendly welcome can be expected from Ellen & George every year. We always stayed when we come to Aviemore. Good breakfast with all choices. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Convenient off-road parking. Few minutes walk to local amenities. We would recommend the Vermont Guest House to anyone who wants to stay and ideal for travellers. We booked with them again this year.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2009

Still on he road from Land's End to John o' Groats, Aviemore made a logical stop.

The Vermont is situated at the end of the main street that is Aviemore.

With parking at the back of the guest house, this made a perfect stopping point.

We were welcomed as we drove in, and were shown to our rooms. We were lucky enough to get a room with a shared bathroom. Both the rooms and the bathroom were very clean.

Breakfast was served promptly, and was generous in size.

Would consider staying here again.
