“Excellent, specially with the winter deal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2012

Stayed here for the night before going to see the husky rally. The room was lovely some might think it on the small size but we though it was perfectly fine. The bathroom had a decent sized shower which was good and worked perfectly if a little on the loud side when on. We had food in the bar which was excellent, although wish we had noticed the meal deal they had which before ordering. Although in saying that I got one of the specials and that wouldn't have been included. As for the food it was excellent as was the breakfast in the morning. But the number of people eating I would say it has a reputation of having good food. Also helped but the fact it is reasonably priced. Staff were all very nice which always helps make a difference. . Will certainly look up this hotel next time we need to stay in the Aviemore area.

We have stayed at the Glen many times over the years, this review however is for the bar and pub-grub only.
As a member of a hillwalking club the obvious attraction of Newtonmore is the great location and the number of Munros on the doorstep. Wherever you stay in Newtonmore be sure to pop into the Glen for a pint of real ale and great pub grub. The staff and owners are well used to hillwalkers and if your boots are not that pristine, they will not mind. Live entertainment is often provided in the bar and makes for a good atmosphere. Best pub in the town.

After spending nights in two Travelodges in the central belt on a family break, this was a great find for the return trip. For Travelodge money you get an excellent bed, a quiet room, decent breakfast and good beer and food on hand - you even get cheery staff!
I found this hotel through the Good Beer Guide, and would never have know about it otherwise. It's very handy for the A9.

Our family of three adults stayed in the '2+1' option which involved a shared bathroom and - I guess - some of the older rooms in the hotel. However, it was a comfortable stay, staff were helpful and the bar a comfy spot with good food and cask ales, including a beautifully kept Deuchars. The restaurant opposite (same food) seemed a bit gloomy by comparison. Breakfast fine but unremarkable.

Badenochtraveller, Owner at The Glen Hotel, responded to this review, November 12, 2011
Thankyou for taking time to post your positive review. All the team at The Glen Hotel are pleased to have been of service and we hope that you will return in the future. Just to confirm your thoughts, our 'Triple Combination' (a twin & a single room that share a bathroom) are two of the last rooms to be refurbished and whilst your have confirmed that they were clean and comfortable they are in need of modernisation. We hope that this will be completed by summer 2012 which will include conversion to en suite. We acknowledge this fact in the rate that we charge and on the night the reviewer stayed the rate was only £25.00 per person including full Scottish breakfast. Unfortunately a Sunday night at the end of October is very quite for us and the residents dining room was unused so will have been lacking in 'atmosphere' as everyone preferred to eat in our lounge bar. There are some aspects of refurbishment planned for this room too over the coming winter.
Once again, thankyou and we hope that we see you again in the not too distant future.

We have now stayed at the Glen Hotel at least six times. It is our ideal hotel: small, cosy, spotlessly clean, exceptionally helpful staff, good food and wine at sensible prices. You can choose to eat in either the bar or in the dining room - both have the same menu.The location, right on the main street of Newtonmore is so convenient as is the car park. Comfy beds mean a good night's sleep. The bar is popular with visitors and local alike.

Room Tip: We usually choose an en suite room at the front of the hotel but you can also opt for rooms at the b...
