We didn't stay at the Hotel but ate there Three times in a week as it was always delicious food. Staff were courteous and VERY helpful-nothing was too much trouble. Atmosphere was great and it was always full - we always went early to get a table. Can't recommend the food and staff highly enough. Well worth a visit.

I never stayed at the Hotel but had occasions to have breakfast for both Saturday and Sunday. The staff were friendly, efficient and welcoming. The food was plentiful, tasty and hot with as much tea and coffee that you can drink. About 14 of us went to the Saturday entertainment, the place was jumping with people dancing and singing. the...

We stopped off in Aviemore for dinner in November 2016. It's difficult to pick somewhere that isn't touristy and a bit of a rip off. Anyway chose the Cairngorm Hotel and can only say it exceeded my expectations. Excellent range of real ales in the public bar and a cracking pint of Guinness too. We only had 2 courses. I... More

We opened the window but that made it very noisy. The bed was obviously 2 singles put together... More

Visited here twice for dinner during our stay in Aviemore. The food was fantastic and plentiful portions. Reasonably priced meals and a lovely cosy atmosphere. Centrally located in town so within walking distance from our accommodation. Will definitely return when we are next at Aviemore.

Went here for Saturday Night Drinks in September. Great atmosphere, Brilliant Band and excellent beer selection. My Wife and I then had dinner here on the Sunday night, the Service was excellent, food was delicious with decent sized portions. I will definitely return to the Cairngorm Hotel, and hopefully next time there will be a room vacancy.
