Looking for a weekend break in Strathspey, we found the Garth Hotel on a late booking site and reserved three nights. Despite the last-minute reservation, our room, which was a 'standard double', was excellent with a (modern, steel-framed) four poster bed and, impressively, a small seating area in the bay window. The view was down the main street, over an ornamental garden, which in this location was probably about the best in the hotel.
The staff were all friendly and attentive and added to the experience. We dined in the restaurant on only one night, but the meal was of a very high standard and served promptly. The breakfasts comprised a buffet selection of cereals, juices and fruits, followed by the full highland selection of locally sourced meat and fish.
The bar is very small, but has a good selection of malt whiskies and other drinks, including the local beers. Outside seating is also available - but beware of the midges especially later in the evening.
Overall, an excellent stay at a very reasonable price. It is very likely we will return.
