Stayed here last year so didn't think twice about returning. We were in a different room this time (room 11) which was a bit smaller than the room we had last time which was a room on the front. I would pay the extra for a bigger room as the shower and bathroom were very small indeed. We stayed for... More

nice place, although it was a quick stop just for some warm, a cup of hot chocolate and a cup of tea. Hope to be able to stay there for more than one night so that it would be perfect to go up the Cairngorm Mountain without needing to return to Perth...

Second stay at CGH and just as impressive. Was there with a group of Harley riders last weekend for Thunder in the Glens. Wonderfully clean guest house with extremely friendly owners and staff. The breakfasts are great and set you up for the rest of the day. Nice communal lounge to relax in as well.

Really nice house, excellent bed and breakfast - this is how it should be done. Friendly hosts, comfy, clean, well appointed room, great breakfast. Number is in the phone for a repeat visit, and now my number 1 place to stay in the area.

This guest house was very good and the family room for four adults worked fine. The breakfast was delicious and freshly made. The host was friendly but very short bound. She seemed to be stressed. But this didn't affect us. The guest house is perfect to reach the national park and to explore Aviemore.

Stayed at the Cairngorm Guest House for 2 nights and had to comment about Pauline. Pauline was so attentive that I thought she was the owner! Upon our arrival, 4 hours early, we were wet from walking in the rain. No worries! The room was ready and she invited us to move right in. She gave us cake to accompany... More
