Lydie offers a warm welcome and the house is beautifully and tastefully restored to reflect a French and Scottish culture. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable with a fine view across to the hills. We only had breakfast but it was carefully prepared with home and local produce and home baked croissants. Lydie is a wonderful cook. There is great... More

Really nice hotel with lots of character but updated. The breakfasts were amazing in novelty, quality and amount. We also had a wonderful dinner there one night that was very special. If we ever go back to the Cairngorm area, this is where we would certainly stay.

Well, what a fantastic experience this was, a real treat to go here for an evening meal. Pre dinner drinks in the lounge with open log fire, then an absolutely lovely meal created by Lydie Bocquillon the chef and owner of the Auld Alliance Kingussie. I have eaten at many fine restaurants and i can tell you that the food... More

The Auld Alliance is a lovely place. The owner Lydie really looks after her guests well. If you stay here or near Kingussie make sure you go for an evening meal here. The food is fantastic. Kingussie is very much a place for "pub grub" and Lydie offers something far more upmarket and tasty. It was my birthday whilst we... More

We stayed at this property for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. We were traveling with our adult son and had two rooms, both of which were beautifully decorated and comfortable. The small bottle of Whisky provided was a lovely touch. This beautifully maintained property was classic and comfortable and worth going to but the icing on... More

It was perfect, the location, the food, the costumer service. The house is beautiful and they care about details. The town is lovely abd the people are friendly. It is very easy to go to nice walks around the national park.

This restaurant is truly wonderful, myself and my husband haven't had food like this since we visited France. The whole experience was perfect from our drinks in the sitting room (fantastic wine and gin choices from our lovely hosts) to our wonderfully well put together menu. It's just so obvious that there is a real love and passion for food... More

My son lives near Kingussie and for a birthday treat he suggested we took his grandparents so, (3 generations of family) went to the Auld Alliance on Tuesday evening. From the moment we arrived the ambiance was exquisite. We were greated by a most friendly member of the restaurant, nothing was too much trouble. We were shown to a beautiful... More

We were staying in the area as a house party of 15 and booked to have dinner on our last night at the Auld Alliance in Kingussie. We had a real treat, being welcomed by two lovely members of staff on arrival and ushered into a beautiful lounge in this lovely early Victorian house. After drinks we were invited to... More

On the whole we had an ok time at the Auld Alliance. There were some really nice touches that we really appreciated like the whisky refills in our room and the lovely home made biscuits. However the wifi was hard to pick up and we arrived early and felt very uncomfortable to have done so. The rooms are comfortable but... More
