My wonderful boyfriend booked this hotel as a surprise for us. Fantastic hotel, lovely food & friendly staff. Our room was at the back of the hotel which was very quiet. Good spacious rooms, comfy bed. Very relaxing. Definately coming back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 114. This room was at the back of the hotel which was quiet apart from the birds i...

A great place to stop if yopu are passing through Aviemore and looking for a quick meal. Easy parking around the hotel. Service is good, food portions fairly large and good value for money. One of these days I will take a longer stop and hopefully try the food on the train which this hotel provides.

After 9 hour journey was denied access to our (empty) room + had to sit in reception. Woken up by noise in the small hours by hotel revellers in hotel grounds. Unconvinced that the English are actually welcome and overall quite disappointed with the lack of a warm welcome, in no doubt that this is a business first and clearly a good one!

Room Tip: If you want to stay IN Aviemore then this is smack bang in the centre but were I to go back I would...

A nice, clean and traditional hotel. The rooms were small but well equipped and clean. The staff was professional. The food in the restaurant was good, and the breakfast diverse and satisfying. The bar was fun and they had locally brewed Cairngorns beer on tap. Like everything in Aviemore, everything was in walking distance, including some wonderful morning walks in nature.

I had read some reviews complaining about the rooms being small, all I can say is that the room we had was a good size. The service we received was excellent and being able to sit in the large and comfortable foyer was a bonus. The room was clean and serviced daily. the bathroom was not the biggest but was adequate. The shower was powerful abeing a height where I could stand up straight - I am 6ft 1. There was a large choice at breakfast which included cheese, meat, fruit, cereal, porridge, kippers and the usual hot items, the hot items are all served to your table.
The only criticism from my wife was that there was not a lot of storage space. We will certainly be returning to this hotel in the future.
