Such a lovely hotel. Upon our arrival we had a friendly welcome, our room was lovely, clean and had a lovely view where you could see the mountains. Very central to everything. The food is great, good portions, staff are friendly and always happy to help. Very relaxed feel and would definitely go back.

Stayed here whilst visiting a friend in Aviemore. We booked a small double and found it to be perfectly adequate for a night or two but for those staying longer it might be a bit restrictive. Beautifully appointed room although I was told on booking out that the first floor rooms are due for upgrade soon and the ones on... More

We stayed on a Wednesday night before walking up Cairngorm the following day. Arrived by train with hotel directly across the road, so ideal location. We were given a first floor room at the rear of the hotel. The room was small, and difficult to move around if someone sat at the desk, however it was only one night. There... More

I can't begin to describe how good the service and food is in the Cairngorm Hotel. All staff are so efficient and friendly and the food is to die for. Not one single complaint, hence why we returned twice in two days! Would highly recommend this restaurant to all friends. Every time I visit Aviemore it is a given that... More

A short stay in Coylumbridge led our family out for tea on a Monday evening to the Cairngorm Hotel which had a great stir about it as we went in and we were doubtful of sitting down, but, within minutes, we were shown to a table, drinks organised and menu taken very efficiently and with good humour. The menu is... More

A one-night stay while on a Highlands short break. This is a very traditional hotel and very Scottish in terms of public areas decor, which adds to the charm. Very friendly staff and excellent, extensive breakfast. Our room was a little on the small side but that didn't really matter for one night. The hotel also has a restaurant (not... More

The food at the Cairngorm may not always be the most fancy or adventurous, however you are always guaranteed a warm welcome and hearty portions. The bar is often bustling with locals and visitors to the area looking to enjoy some of the local beers and often live music that is on to entertain. The restaurant has a large menu,... More

Had a lovely, clean superior room on the second floor with desk, separate table and chairs, and even a sofa in the turret. Recently redecorated in muted neutral/stone colours, though some touching-up is still needed. Comfortable bed but the winter duvet was way too much for late summer. Bath with shower over; water took a while to warm up and... More

We visit the Cairngorm hotel about 4 times a year. Everytime we go the food is excellent and staff very polite and helpful. Always a busy place. Can't wait for my next visit to Aviemore for a fine feed. Kids also love it Cheers Paul Anderson

My stay in Aviemore always includes a visit to the Cairngorm Hotel. Service is exceptional. Try the restaurant for hearty traditional food & the bar for a true taste of Scotland at its best. .......................................................................
