“Comfortable and homely. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Good hotel and accommodation. Very friendly and attentive staff. Breakfast on first morning was greasy and over fried but second morning was very good. Welcoming and relaxed bar. Restaurant meal in the evening was average pub food. Lack of drawer space in the room. But overall an enjoyable stay.

My sister-in-law had her wedding at the hotel and we stayed for 5 nights. The staff were more than helpful to make sure the day ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble and so I was able to prepare her bouquet and the buttonholes in our room with no distraction - my lunch was even bought up on a tray - their idea not mine, but it was extremely appreciated. Food was always hot, nicely presented and service was excellent. Lots of choice for breakfast. The staff were very friendly and any problems were dealt with immediately. The room was comfortable, clean and reasonably spacious. As we traveled by train having the station across the road was a plus and hotel is well situated for shops. We would certainly come back.

We stayed in this hotel on the evening of the 6th November, room was a spacious room just above the restaurant.

Room itself could possibly do with slight upgrading but overall it was spacious warm and well appointed. It had beautiful views and spacious enough.

Although the sign on the bathroom wall suggests if you would like a bathmat for standing in the bath for a shower they are available at reception – I am unsure why they would not just be placed in the room? This would be muy only minor complaint re this hotel.

We had a few drinks in the bar which was cosy and welcoming and staff were very friendly.
The whole place is decked out in a very traditional Scottish feel, I have to say I enjoyed this immensely!

That night we ate in the Cairngorm Restaurant staff again were helpful, meal was served quickly and would recommend sampling the food, we certainly didn’t have any complaints.
If you are staying in Aviemore you couldn’t go far wrong staying here.

We were looking for somewhere children were allowed in on Halloween. This hotel proved to be excellent. It was clean and tidy and the staff were great with good customer service. Wheelchair access is via a lift which the hotel staff operate willingly. Menu was quite good and the food we had was served quickly but was hot and well cooked. I would certainly stay at this hotel next time I visit Aviemore.

Good local hotel with friendly and welcoming staff - fairly typical type highland hotel. Comfortable & clean room with free wifi - only complaint was that the bathroom was freezing cold. Hearty traditional Scottish breakfasts provided - very good. Had an evening meal in the main dining room - good home cooked food at reasonable price. Band with traditional type entertainment in the main bar - which was well attended by locals - always a good sign.

Very central with all town amenities readily available - and right across road from train station. Good car parking available at hotel.

I would certainly stay there again when in the area.

We were looking for a place to stop and eat on the way to Inverness and we stumbled over this place.

What a find. Very good service from the moment we walked into the hotel and were shown to our table.

Waiting staff were very helpful too. Very extensive menu with lots to choose from.

The food itself was lovely, well presented and reasonably priced. Would certainly recommend this place and would come back again

After using the cairngorm hotel on a number visits it was an obvious choice for me and my then girlfriend to have our wedding at the hotel. It was definately one of the best decisions we have made. The main prople we dealt with were Rhona, Claire, Shobian snd definately not forgetting Craig they couldnt do enough for us nothing was too much trouble and made everybody's stay there perfect so much so that a few of the people that stayed that weekend will be going back in the future,
Thankyou so much a perfect start to our married life.
