Great part of Scotland. Town very average - surroundings amazing. Did mountains railway funicular. Brilliant experience. Disappointing not allowed on mountain unless guided walk purchased. Hotel smelt of cooking not pleasant. Did visit to Inverness. Appalling grid lock traffic.

Stayed for one night at end of May 2016 to play golf at Boat of Garten - comfortable stay with very good breakfast, although as in top floor room, lugging bag and golf clubs up several stairs was a bit of a chore (easier on the way back down) - friendly waitresses at breakfast. Thanks

The best part of this hotel is the location, it was smack in the middle of the town and we had easy access to the train station, local shops and restaurants. The staff were alright when we arrived, did their job but I felt there could have been more of a smile! The rooms were great and beds were comfy... More

Clean, freshly refurbished but homey feeling hotel with fabulous staff, busy and well stocked but not noisy bar, very good restaurant, live music during dinner hours on occasion (pipers - in full regalia!), directly across from the adorably quaint train station (though I only heard train noise once)...why stay anywhere else?

As usual on a Monday night when we are staying at Silverglades, we have a meal at the Cairngorm Hotel. Spot on as always. I see they had a piper on the steps this year for the tourists. I wonder if that was Spud who was on the Cairngorm Mountain programme on BBC1 a few months back?

Plenty of cool little shops along the main road easy walk from the Hotel. You really should stop into the Visitor's Center and allow ample time to browze all the leaflets about many wonderful...

Had a lovely family meal. Was very busy and we had to wait 10 minutes for a table. Staff gave us a buzzer so we knew when our table was ready. Very family friendly and a good selection on the kids menu. Staff were very friendly and given how busy the restaurant was we were served quite quickly. Would definitely... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the one night I stayed here with my mum. We ate in the restaurant at night and although it was boiling hot (a little too hot) the staff were friendly and the food was tasty. The room was clean, tidy and decorated well. Very comfortable beds. The only downside was our room looked onto the car park (not... More
