Friends from Caithness and ourselves booked two rooms in the Garth Hotel for the third of September to enable us to attend a vintage car rally in Grantown. We booked our rooms in May and with less than a fortnight to go to our much anticipated weekend, we both received e mails stating that the hotel could no longer honour... More

Our bed was a little small, but we booked very much at the last moment and I am sure they have better rooms and anyway, this one was ok. We had an excellent evening meal and the breakfast, (freshly cooked to order) was also terrific. Staff very pleasant throughout.

We visited for an evening meal, on a recommendation, and were very disappointed. We ordered our drinks - including a bottle of wine - and had to chase the staff up twice. Eventually we were told that the wine was not in stock - 20 minutes after we had ordered it. The food arrived before the drinks, far too quickly.... More

Stayed here for our last night on a trip around Scotland. Lovely, welcoming hotel. Nicely decorated. Room was very nice - bathroom slightly on the small side but makes good use of space. Good location - easy to walk around the town, and simple to get back out to other destinations (we were heading for Inverness via Culloden). Restaurant -... More

After one night in the Grant Arms due to availability, we moved to the Garth where the rest of our party was staying. The Garth appears to be a bit older than the Grant Arms, but the small pub and dinning is considerably better. We were traveling heavy and I didn't immediately see an elevator, so I dragged the bags... More

The Garth looks like an impressive, small hotel and the colourful, traditionally dressed man on the pavement, strangling cats (playing bagpipes!), raised expectations further. We were a group of 3 adults and 2 children out for an eatly evening dinner. I got the impression the staff weren't looking forward to another busy Wednesday night..... and it certainly got very busy.... More

From the welcoming hotel clerk to the helpful waitstaff, I enjoyed my visit. My hotel room was on the first floor on the street, but it was quiet and cozy. There was a slight problem in the bathroom with a little water leakage. After I talked with the front desk, all was fine. I ate dinner and breakfast at the... More

Friendly staff and a good location on the edge of this one street town. There are an number of steps to tackle, even with a ground floor room. Good food in the restaurant and a huge selection of whisky.
