Like many of the buildings in these parts, the Balavil has a rather austere granite outside with a rather ugly extension tacked onto it. But get inside and there are oak panels, old paintings and a very warm Scottish welcome. Rooms are a decent size and comfortable, the bar food is varied and well priced and the staff very friendly and helpful. There's a small swimming pool with a rather rickety Sauna which seemed to work perfectly well, there is a regular bus service from outside to the ski resort of Aviemore and if you want walking there are loads of opportunities right on the doorstep. If you want a plush hotel with all mod cons this is not the place for you, the furniture and carpets are all showing their age but who cares? It gives the place character and that's what you want in the Highlands of Scotland.
