Stayed here 4 nights - part of Newmarket rail holiday - terrific place to stay - basic room but comfy and good food. Will always remember the stunning scenery nearby and further north to Fort William. I cannot speak too highly of this hotel. Even my wife liked it !
.

Room Tip: Stay on middle floor

Having fond memories of spending a delightful skiing week here over 50 years ago when the hotel was vibrant and bustling we just popped in for a quick beer and a sandwich. And what a disappointment - the whole place felt old and tired, the bar was dingy, the furniture worn and what really summed it up was having to collect a pre-packed sandwich from the hall....but a snip at £1.29!

We spent one night here en route to Edinburgh from the Outer Hebrides, during October when the trees are turning orange - awesome! The hotel is imposing on a road junction close to the famous pack horse bridge over the river (how they got horse to cross it, amazes me!). The hotel is very cosy, and typical of the stone-clad Victorian buildings in the area.
Our room was in the new wing (when we could find it!) overlooking the car park; very convenient to nip out to the vehicle, also one can walk directly into the dining room from the rear staircase, due to it being split level. Unfortunately this made our room a bit too public for our liking. Also, the room was rather too small. Good job we were staying only one night, therefore didn't unpack our cases, because where can one store two 110 litre cases? The beds were standard doubles, brand new and clean, but we prefer kingsize, which is becoming the norm. It is a pity that the Architect, when designing the new wing, didn't sacrifice a couple of rooms to add an extra couple of square metres to each room. Friends travelling with us were put up in some of the original rooms, which they say are much larger and loftier.
Now the plus's. The food was excellent, very generous and well cooked. The staff throughout could not be more helpful and friendly; nothing was too much trouble. In fact, we would stay there again if we were touring, and if we were to stay a few days, WE would certainly insist upon one of the older, larger, rooms..

Room Tip: Ask for one of the older rooms, not in the new wing, although the front rooms can be subject to some...

Although not trendy or chic I really enjoyed the 4 nights I recently spent in Carrbridge. I stayed in a single room which was comfortable and clean. All facilities such as TV, radio,tea and coffee making were included and while it took me a little while to negotiate my way around I soon felt at home. Just one little grip the bed was a bit lumpy. That said a big bonus was the attitude of the staff who without exception were all friendly and helpful, this was clearly due to good staff training and they all genuinely seemed to be happy in their work. The food was well prepared and varied daily...try the wholesome soups they really are good. Outside the hotel the scenery is lovely and there are plenty of local walks and a very handy local Spar store which seems to sell just about everything. While the Carrbridge hotel is not 5 star I certainly would return and if the Scottish weather is anywhere near as good as that during my stay this hotel makes a great starting point each morning after enjoying a great breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are very quiet.

It's a good hotel in a magical setting with a gracious staff. Rooms are basic but comfortable. Food is well prepared and served a-plenty. But it was the staff that really made this such a wonderful stay. Just lovely people - so welcoming, so helpful and so friendly. Felt as if I was treated as family. Thank yo Colin! Thank you Paula! I'll be back again next year!

A great hotel, Breakfast was really great and dinners wholesome . A little problem with finding your room( need a satnav ) as all on diffrent levels. Rooms clean and staff very helpful. I would use the Hotel again.

Room Tip: Go for south facing rooms top floor in the new part.(rooms 240 onwards)

A great deal was made of the welcome by the management on our coach. Dishes of food mentioned in this were not even available on the menu. Room was largish looking out over the main road and a garage - hence noisy. We shared it with some massive spiders. The decor was dated and bed uncomfortable. Food in general was cold and roughly presented. Ham salad was three slices of packet ham with a few tired lettuce leaves and half a tomato. The vegetarian dish that night was unpleasant in appearance and taste. I managed to order a drink at the bar and was given a glass with a slither of glass on the outside which pierced my finger. Staff were attentive once the designated first aider arrived. Until then I was not even given a plaster. Perhaps the most revealing fact about the hotel set up is that I was not even offered a free drink! Breakfast was no better. The nicest thing in Carrbridge is the old bridge.
