Highlander Hotel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Newtonmore
Reviewed November 11, 2013

This was my first time in Newtonmore for a long time and my first time staying at the Highlander Hotel.

Briefly, this was a very enjoyable stay. The staff were friendly, chatty and accommodating and there was a selection of cereals, fruit and cooked food for breakfast.

The one evening meal we did have was very nice and reasonably priced.

The room was clean and cosy and large enough for me, my wife and children.

There is also ample parking and plenty of amenities and attractions nearby.

Couldn't fault it at all!

It was the Annual Re union at the Highlander Hotel in Newtonmore great meal and fine hospitality. I will be back next year all being well. It is great to see that in some Hotels the hospitality is still very good and the staff coped very well with over 130 for the dinner.

Just want to say that the service we received between 21-25 October 2013 was fantastic. Jeanette went out of her way to help and support us when my snoring got too much for my wife and kindly offered me a separate room to sleep in for the last two nights.

We found this hotel on Classic Breaks website and, at £28 per person per night for bed, breakfast and dinner, we decided to book for 4 nights. A great decision!

It was very convenient for Cairngorm where we had three excellent days skiing. Also driving distance to The Lecht and Nevis if desired. Ski Norwest are based at the hotel making hire of equipment and purchase of tickets so much easier.

The room was warm, clean and comfortable with large soft towels and good bedlinen. Tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer and toiletries were also provided. Room was serviced daily with towels, bedding and provisions replaced as needed. The heated towel rail was a welcome touch in the bathroom. Modern flat screen TV and alarm clock added to the facilities.

A team of very friendly and efficient staff were on hand in the large and busy restaurant. We never had to wait long but equally never felt that we were being rushed. Dinner was included in the price and was 3 courses with 4 options for starter and main, including at least 1 vegetarian choice. We enjoyed the retro dessert trolley which provided a selection of temptingly fattening puddings. . Breakfast was also plentiful with cereal, porridge and fruit buffet and good quality hot choices made to order. I cannot imagine anyone going hungry in The Highlander and most tastes were catered for. The staff here are wonderfully friendly and welcoming.

I would go back there any time and highly recommend the hotel to anyone, particularly if you're on a budget.

Our second stop with our Newmarket Tour of Scotland was the Highlander Hotel in Newtonmore. Our room was comfortable and, whilst overlooking the main road, was quiet. The dawn chorus from the nearby woods was wonderful to hear. The bathroom shower needs some attention – I had to run round to get wet!! Food was OK, served to the table but staff hovered waiting to collect the empty plates and unused wine glasses. Comfortable lounge.

Room Tip: If you lie a dawn chorus, have a room roadside.

We stayed here on our way to a canal boat tour from Laggan. Hotel was clean and comfortable, but the walls and floors were pretty thin so noise was very noticeable. We were on the second floor, so not too bad but we could hear the folks on the first floor talking! The restaurant was pricey and the night we were there, there was a bus load of tourists and the place was packed. We had dinner at the pub down the street which was a better choice. Not many options in Newtonmore, so OK for a short stay. Staff was VERY helpful in arranging a taxi to get us to the dock at Laggan Lochs.

Room Tip: UPSTAIRS will be much quieter!

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in August. We were on a dinner bed&breakfast basis. Yhe room in the hotel was very clean and comfortable. The only thing that might be upgraded was the shower.. The quality choice and quantity of the food was really good. The staff were very friendly and so helpful. We found plenty of things to do in the area as well, and had a really lovely break.
