Just stayed for two nights to celebrate our anniversary. We dined here both nights and service was quick, and food was good, ample portions. Entertained was excellent. Breakfast was very tasty - cannot fault it. The room was adequate, bed very comfy. However if I was being picky would have liked bottled water available in room. The bathroom was on...

Having visited Aviemore on numerous occasions and had drinks and eaten in the Cairngorm hotel we felt it was time to stay a night. The rooms are pleasant and clean with everything you need. A bit on the small side but what wins you over is the friendly and accommodating staff, the log fires and the outstanding food. I'd most...

Haven't stayed here but have eaten here many times.... Huge menu to choose from and we finally did their buffet night last year which was fantastic! Kids have plenty to choose from too. Would love to stay overnight sometime to enjoy the bar atmosphere!

I loved the design of my room, bathroom I found was a little small and the bath was too small for me and uncomfortable, but the double bed was lovely. Cleanliness was ok until I found the nasty surprise next to the toilet, yep you guessed right! Really disappointed in my evening meal, I had the roast lamb dinner, not...

Website states pets welcome. So we decided to have lunch and take the dog. Went into bar to be advised dogs only permitted in reception where we could get a coffee but not lunch. Website should withdraw reference to pets welcome. We went elsewhere where our dog was welcome. Won't be back

Stayed here for one night shortly after the new year. Received a warm welcome when we arrived and we enjoyed the traditional Scottish decor. Room was very nice and had all the facilities needed including hairdryer and iron. The hotel is in a great location to stroll through the main street and to enjoy other eateries. However we decided to...

We stayed at the MacDonald Aviemore Highland Resort just behind the Cairngorm Hotel, we paid for dinner bed and breakfast for 3 nights, by the time the 3rd night came and due to poor customer service we had experienced we decided to see if we could have our New Years Day Dinner at the Cairngorm Hotel. This was the right...

We had booked the Christmas Day lunch at the Cairngorm Hotel restaurant. We were greeted pleasantly and seated quickly. Our orders were taken swiftly. I had a delicious pate starter and my husband liked his salmon and prawn. He enjoyed a champagne sorbet and I had a heartwarming soup. We both opted for the traditional turkey but I rather wish...

The cairngorm hotel produces nice food and drink and is central in Aviemore. The staff are friendly and helpful and it is a good place to sit back and relax. The rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable.

This is a very nice traditional hotel. All Highland decor and atmosphere make it an ideal location for a Scottish break. In particular the staff were very helpful and accommodating. It has been quite busy the 2 times we visited which is generally a good sign and is part of the great atmosphere, but I'm sure it would also be...
