Stayed here Sept 11 to Sept 16th on a coach tour from North Wales.
Hotel clearly revolves around coach tours. Breakfasts were great - set you up for the day (lovely bacon & eggs). Our evening meal was at 1930. Good choice of courses and great sweet trolley. Only gripe was that cheese course was an extra £4.95 if you fancied a change from the the sweet trolley!
Waiters/waitresses a mixture of Eastern Europeans and locals. Poles in kilts dominated - friendly and efficient service.
My single room was comfortable and quiet (Newtonmore is off the busy A9). I had a new flat screen tv in my room - reception wasn't great. Parent's had a double room next door with better picure.
Free Wi-Fi in the lounge worked perfectly.
Tail end of hurricane Katia meant the area was pretty rainy during my stay!
In summary, clearly a hotel that lives on three coaches a night being in.
Good food, good service and a great base for exploring the Cairngorms and beyond.
Got back to England today and had to retune tv to BBC2 Scotland to see the Shinty final - Newtonmore won for first time in 25 years - I was cheering like a local!
