We were staying in Aviemore for the night on the way back home and decided to have dinner at the Cairngorm hotel, this is a great venue for music but an added bonus for me was that there was a shepherd's pie on the menu which was actually vegan - and very tasty. Its so nice to not have to... More

Love this hotel. Great location, really Scottish decor makes you feel like you're in the highlands. Perfect for a night's rest in between outdoor activities. The bedroom we got was on the small size, the bathroom felt a bit squeezed in. It didn't really impact us though. The bed was large and the room was tidy and had everything we... More

Provides the comforts of home, comfortable bed, well maintained and a restaurant that serves hearty scottish favourites. Counter services were friendly and helpful. There is one peeve though--wifi. The wifi beam is on, but can´t seem to connect. Work on it guys! Also, it doesn´t provide laundry service. To get to it, you have to walk about 5-10 minutes from... More

Booked this hotel as a stop over between Stornoway and Lincolnshire. Arrived just after 8pm to find the place swarming with people. It was really bad trying to find a parking space as it was completely full, managed to squeeze in but not in a parking space. There were boisterous people everywhere and the front of the hotel was noisy.... More

The hotel has a nice selection of food options to choose from. We stopped in because the soup came highly recommended. The service was fast and efficient. My meal was okay. I ordered the steak sandwich and the meat was tough and gristley. I should have had the soup.

On a recent visit to Aviemore we visited the hotel for breakfast. The restaurant was not busy and there appeared to be two waitstaff working. The waiter was very rude although the meal was satisfactory. Do not recommend if you like polite service .

Stayed on 2 Fri nights, 5 Aug, then 12 Aug, while transiting elsewhere and back. Across street from train station and care hire. Grocer, shops, ATM, church within 5-10 min walk. Our rooms were quiet both Fridays even tho over the dining room. (Must say the 830 to 900 pm Piper concert on front steps could be heard loudly.) Superior... More

Very nice hotel with friendly professional staff. Room clean and nicely appointed. Beds very nice. Could use a lift as stairs can be a challenge with bags... bar and restaurant were both good. Parking was tricky as it's a popular eatery for locals . Would stay there again.

We ate here on four nights out of six on a recent visit to Aviemore as the food and service are of a consistently high standard, with a wide ranging menu. The restaurant is always busy, and a short wait can occur (up to 40 minutes), but buzzers are provided allowing you to enjoy a drink in the bar while... More

What a great idea to serve our traditional fayre in this format. Food was so good, and there was so much choice some of it taking me right back to my childhood. Service was great and although we had to wait this just goes to show how popular it is. Just a shame I couldn't eat more than I did... More
