really good food and atmosphere and service

I had Venison with a berry sauce. Wish they had strained the pips out, as blackberry pips play havoc with one's teeth , but otherwise fautless

My wife and I were looking for lunch and went into the Cairngorm.
We were showed a table by a nice girl who had our drink order taken very quickly.
I orderd the haggis and my wife the chicken. The portion was huge but very tasty.
The prices were quite good and if you want a nice lunch this place should suit you.

Called into Aviemore TIC seeking a recommendation for lunch and they recommend this place and so glad they did!
After 17 days on the road we were keen for a decent Sunday lunch and this place delivered. We received prompt friendly service the minute we walked thru the door. Lunch options were explained to us and we settled on the 2 courses for £11.95 each. Started with entrees of chicken liver pate and stuffed mushrooms then proceeded to have roast beef and roast pork for mains. Boy do they serve up big portions, food was fantastic and we didn't dare look at desserts.
If visiting Aviemore do yourself a favour and give this place a try, amongst the best service we received on our trip, unfortunately was only in Aviemore 1 night otherwise would have eaten here every day. Well done Cairngorms Hotel, your staff, service and food are a credit to you.

Having checked out menus in all the eateries available in Aviemore, we decided on this Hotel. We chose well. We were impressed by the staff who were helpful, courteous, efficient and looked after their customers extremely well. There is a lovely welcoming, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The food was served very quickly, piping hot, and delicious. We shared a starter of smoked meats on a bed of salad - sounds boring, but it was far from it. We then had mains of venison casserole and scampi. Followed by a shared dessert of cheesecake. We enjoyed the food so much, we went back the following night. We shared the hot camembert cheese followed by venison steak and fish pie and again shared the cheesecake. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and presentation of the food - it was extremely good value and within most visitors' budget. We later went into the lounge area where there was live entertainment - a young man playing great music on guitar. It was a really enjoyable night and a lovely ending to our visit to Aviemore.
