Hotel in a great location for exploring the Highlands, and the beds are about as comfortable as you can get in a hotel. The check in staff were lovely and the interior of the hotel, although in need of some TLC in places is stunning. There was however 2 main gripes with our visit. When we arrived there seemed to...

Mum and I had the most enjoyable holiday at this hotel through Cairngorm Travel (27 June - 3 July 16). Des the coach driver and his wife Margaret did us proud. Very informative and very friendly. We had a lovely room at the hotel, staff were very friendly and the food good. Will definitely use Cairngorm Travel again.

Lovely one night stay here - clean, comfortable room and nice breakfast. Hotel has a nice atmosphere and very Scottish/traditional. You have to ask for a hairdryer from reception. Has wi fi but it can be temperamental, especially when trying to watch videos. Plenty parking round the back.

My husband and I recently stopped into the Duke of Gordon for some cocktails while visiting teeny-tiny (but adorable) Kingussie. I sampled both of the local cask ales and he decided to try some of the local whiskies.

We wanted something to eat at 4.30pm a few days ago. And the Duke of Gordon said it served food all afternoon. And indeed it did. The menu is a good range. And our food was decent quality and certainly value for money. The service was excellent.

We found this restaurant by chance after the Tipsy Laird was closed because of a gas leek. The eastern European waitress was very friendly. Some of the food was a bit greasy but we were starving and ate up hungrily, inexpensive venue.

My husband and myself stayed Friday 27th and Saturday 28th May as there was one of their Ceilidh specials being held. There is quite a difference in the hotel as it has been re-carpeted and freshened through the ground floor. It is obvious that upgrading is taking place and the staff and food are still excellent. Highly recommend a visit.
