“Would not recommend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2011

I can not understand the good reviews for this place; I have been to Aviemore many times and stayed at lots of Highland hotels and this was one of the most disappointing. The room was tiny, the shower was an old fashioned shower, but it had a head on it designed for a power shower so the water dribbled out and the TV did not work. The receptionist was really nice and friendly but the woman serving breakfast was really grumpy and unfriendly - did not understand the concept of customer service. After spending two weeks in the Highlands this was the most miserly breakfast that I got; my partner ordered the full breakfast which was just about acceptable, but I only ordered two items from the cooked breakfast but I got the same portions for each item as my partner therefore my breakfast was tiny. Tiny cup of coffee given at breakfast which was cold by the time my breakfast arrived. Considering the competition in Aviemore I would not return.

Stayed 1 night, but will be returning again soon. The location is central to avimore, with off road parking to the front and rear. The hotel is so well kept internal and external. The rooms are light and well presented with on suite (shower over the bath) flat screen telly and tea/coffee in the rooms. The menu is great, a lovely variety which is very reasonably priced. The staff are super, friendly and accommodating. The price was so reasonable £70 b+b...worth a stay.

This B&B is situated near the centre of Aviemore and there is off road parking. It is spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. On the down side, our double room was quite small and could maybe have done with a little refurbishment. Breakfast was good - a full cooked breakfast served by cheery staff. We did eat there one evening and while the food was very good, it did work out quite pricey - like tapas with an international slant. We would definately stay there again if we were in the area.

Stayed here for 1 night (at a discount rate) on a walking trip with friends. Hotel recently renovated, clean and modern. Room was small and basic, but clean, tidy and comfortable. Breakfast was pretty good, and staff OK. Didn't dine in the evening so can't comment. Maybe better for a short stay than a base for longer.

After staying two nights at this hotel we were impressed by the cleanliness of the room and the en-suite bathroom. The staff in the hotel were extremely friendly and we couldn't fault their service. The food was superb and we liked the idea of the themed restaurant menu. The hotel's location is fairly central in Aviemore and has adequate parking facilities. We would definately recommend this hotel and will visit again.
