“excellent location with good price”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

just returned from 5 nights at this nice hotel (2nd visit). hotel in excellent position - opposite aviemore railway station. ideal if travelling by train or overnight sleeping car train from london. hotel booking all smooth & friendly. check in just the same. hotel has 32 rooms - we had room at the front of hotel (room 101) nice & clean. good bathroom,tv,tea,coffee,hot chocolate,biscuits supplied daily. no lift in hotel,but disabled lift outside main entrance. breakfast very good with cerials,yoghurts,fruit salad,cheese,ham,jams,honey,rolls,mini muffins and superb cooked breakfast - egg,bacon,sausage,beans,tomatoes,mushrooms,saute potatoes,potato scones,fried bread,black pudding. teas/coffee & toast. hotel does superb meals,with fantastic choice. pub/bar with friendly customers/staff. nothing any trouble for hotel staff. wifi (internet) free near reception (cant get in rooms !) plenty of parking spaces. very good value for money. pet friendly. great to look out of window in the room and see the snow coming down. i recommend this hotel,and the winter weather makes aviemore,but any time of the year you would enjoy. if you have never been to aviemore - try it - you will fall in love with the place & hotel.plenty of eating places in aviemore but hotel has superb choice,tasty food and excellent service ! will def go back.

Room Tip: room 101 with nice views over the caingorms . end family room on 1st floor looks good.

Room was clean, but small and poorly designed,e.g. Door opened straight into a chair, large kettle impossible to fill from tiny sink and taps, bed uncomfortable with plastic under sheet . Breakfast was plentiful but eggs over cooked. Staff were pleasant and helpful and on the plus side the room was reduced to £70 so fairly good value but would not rush back.

Stayed at the Cairngorm for a couple of nights and would certainly stay again. Friendly relaxed atmosphere. Accommodation was very comfortable and the food was really good. Buffet on a Thursday night was excellant and extremely good value.
Good location.

We stayed at the Cairngorm as part of a house searching trip in the area.
It has a realy warm and welcoming feel as you check in.
As it is across the road from the Railway Station, the Bar is always full, but the atmosphere is brilliant. We chatted to locals and tourists and all agreed this was the place to be in Aviemore.
Little extras like plates of hot pies,sausage rolls, onion rings, chips etc were produced for all to enjoy on a cold Saturday Afternoon.
The rooms are spotless & warm.
The Breakfast was first class, all the usual bits of Full Scotish, but wuth the addition of Haggis.
The Evening meal was plentifull and very tasty. (Yes Haggis again as a starter)
Realy good value for money.
We are planing another trip early 2013 and will definatly choose the Cairngorm again.

Room Tip: We had a front room overlooking the main road and station. Though it was busy, we had no problem sl...

Enjoyed train journey to Aviemore with a friend. Came off train and walked straight across road into hotel. We received a very warm welcome by reception staff. This was the start of a most enjoyable 2 night stay. Room spotless ( only issue was that we only had 1 chair to sit on in room) with an excellent power shower and bath. Food in restaurant was excellent in quality, quantity and in presentation. Would definitely recommend this private run hotel and hope to return in the future.

Visit Aviemore every year at the same time. Eat here daily, often more than once. 1st class service in both bar and dining room. Staff very friendly with excellent menu. Although we have never stayed in the hotel, if we didn't own a timeshare nearby, it would certainly be our first choice of accomodation.

Did a quick internet search as I needed an overnight stopover on the way to Elgin and found the Cairngorm. Hotel was very nice, bar and dining area looked good (although I didn't use them) and there was entertainment on. Room clean and tidy if a bit on the small side but perfect for just me. Breakfast was cooked to order and was also nice with a good range of choice. Highlight was power shower in bathroom which was excellent.
