This is a friendly hotel in the heart of aviemore. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is good and good value. We had a little problem one night with the heating in the room and this was quickly sorted by the night porter. Would come again

My latest visit since Feb c2014. Nothing has changed. The hotel is welcoming, the staff are warm and friendly,the food (especially breakfast) is whole and hearty. The location is perfect and the rates are good value. The Internet is about the worst I have ever experienced. The staff apologise and say they are seeking to upgrade but they said the... More

Great hotel in a very central location where the beds are comfy and the food is excellent. The bar itself deserves a special mention as its a great friendly place with nearly always something going on to keep you entertained. Highly reccomended

We only ever stay here when we visit Aviemore. Being right opposite the train station makes this place extremely handy indeed. Very welcoming, great bar scene, good food with generous portions whats not to like? We'll be back.

We popped in to the cairngorm on New Year's Day and it was very lively, great Scottish band playing, really got your toes tapping. A good pint of best, and they had the footy on too, it was a great atmosphere for the new year. We then went into the restaurant to have our dinner, good honest pub grub and... More

We have stayed at the Cairngorm many times, nearly once a year, and enjoyed every visit. In 2010 we stayed for 3 nights over Christmas Eve - 27th December and had a brilliant time! The staff are always friendly and helpful, the food is yummy and the bar warm and cosy!

Had to travel up and around this area and meet with others so decided on here as a place centrally located, easy to find and open to non-residents. Met mid morning and ordered that breakfast - grand - just what the doctor ordered after an early morning start and a bit of a journey. All in all seemed to be... More

8 family members arrived and as unable to book we had a 5 minute wait for a table but were given a little 'buzzer ' to let us know when it was ready then taken through to a great table by the window. Out of 8 of us we had a vegetarian, coeliac, 2 children and 1 adult fussy eater... More
