“A Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We stayed at this hotel during a recent visit to Newtonmore. We arrived after a long drive to be greeted by Marion and Graeme who were so friendly and accommodating. We had actually booked into one of the smaller rooms, however as the hotel was quiet we were upgraded to 'The Beeches'. This room was amazing- good sized bath and a large bed which was perfect for our romantic stay and engagement! Breakfasts were 10/10 with plenty of choice and clearly top quality ingredients.
Throughout our stay our hosts were so friendly and as they also live at the property with their young son, it felt like staying at some relatives house, not your usual hotel.
Overall this hotel is just lovely and we can't wait to return!

Room Tip: I'm sure all of the rooms are lovely but 'The Beeches' is extra special!

Stayed for two nights in November. Location was excellent - tranquil and lovely setting. Close enough to drive to all the top attractions. Lovely views and we were lucky to see some of the local visitors - red squirrels in the garden and the sheep dog in action in the field opposite. We stayed in the Firs room which was spacious, cosy and had plenty storage space. Everything was immaculate and the little touches - tea/coffee tray, blanket, hot water bottle etc. - were more than you get in 5 star hotels! The amount of tour information and DVDs in the lobby was also very useful.

Marion made us feel at home throughout the stay and was an excellent hostess. Rosie the dog also said hello and caught up with us after our days out.

The breakfast was excellent - great choice (porridge, kippers, sausages, bacon, eggs, cereals, fruits etc.....) and all high quality local products to boot. The breafast room was lovely and the hallway with the fire was very cosy.

We only have very high praise for Coig Na Shee. Would love to return.

Perfect setting at Newtonmore, in the Cairngorm National Park. Lovely older property sympathetically restored with caring and helpful hosts. Very good breakfast cooked to order.
Recommended and will stay again.

My wife, my brother and I stayed three nights in Newtonmore at Coig Na Shee, a delightful B&B. Our trip to Scotland was planned as an afterthought to a well-researched trip to Ireland, but staying in the Scottish Highlands turned out to be the highlight of the trip. Hosts Marion and Graeme had excellent recommendations for where to go, what to see and where to eat and drink. The B&B is spotless, comfortable and well worth the price. Of course, there's the full Scottish Breakfast of egg, sausage, tomato, mushroom and ham, along with porridge, coupled with a broad array of cold cereals, fruit and yogurt.

We stayed with an other couple for one night in this beautiful house and wish we had more time here. Marion is a gracious host (I'm sure Graeme is too, but we only saw him as we were leaving!) Marion made sure we were comfortable and prepared a lovely meal for us - available with advance notice. There is lots of information about the area with things to do. The house is also immaculate. We didn't mind taking our shoes off at all to keep it that way!! We also experienced THE most comfortable bed in all of our 7 nights in Scotland.We highly recommend Coig na Shee!

We stayed for one night at Coig Na Shee in one room with two twin beds and one room with a double bed. The house is easy to find with good directions provided by the hosts. The rooms are on the smaller side but suited our needs perfectly and are spotlessly clean. I appreciated that Marion provided a binder of information in the room with a listing of numerous local activities, restaurants, maps, etc. We slept very well and the house was quiet. Also nice was a landing with numerous books and games and toys for children. The breakfast room was lovely with a great deal of food provided; fresh fruit, yogurt and cereals as well as porridge, kippers or full English breakfast to order. Overall, a great B&B. We would definitely return.
