We stayed here when the proprietors had just taken over and returned recently for a long weekend. What can I say? WOW!! What a transformation. We stayed in the family room. Huge! Sparkling clean. Beautiful decor with a nod to their beautiful surroundings through the use of local fabrics and tasteful art work. The most comfortable beds and hotel quality bedding. This guesthouse is definitely what I would describe as a top end boutique b&b. It offers all the comforts that branded hotels don’t even offer these days. Gorgeous toiletries, fluffy towels... not to mention the complimentary shortbread. Breakfast was also perfect. Excellent choice, locally sourced products and friendly, welcoming service. I honestly couldn’t rate it highly enough. Seriously good value for money and the owners are on hand to help with any query you may have. We will be back!!

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay here for my birthday. The location is perfect for exploring aviemore and surrounding areas. The room was clean and spacious and had everything needed for our stay. The owner was friendly and helpful and the ladies at breakfast were lovely too. The breakfast choice was really good and tasted great. We will definitely be back for longer next time and would highly recommend staying here to anyone visiting the area

Ok check in we were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our rooms. The lady checking us in gave us the rundown on how breakfast works and let us know that the common areas were reserved for breakfast to keep any potential covid spread down. There was sanitizer everywhere and a total feeling of safety. Breakfast was THE BEST we had had all week on our vacation around the north. Also for any other Canadians, get the pancakes with the real Canadian maple syrup. Was the icing on the cake so to speak. Owner was great to chat with and you can tell that he and the entire staff enjoy what they do and do it better than most!

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst doing some music teaching in the area and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Breakfast was excellent, and all staff were amazing. I owe a great thanks to owner, Mark - who was kind enough to allow me to borrow a plate and cutlery for my takeaway, after I wasn’t able to get anywhere to sit in for dinner in Aviemore. Cheers, Mark! Bedroom was very clean, and comfortable - with a little oak table which I used to work on in the mornings. I’m 21, and have never written a Tripadvisor review before - but would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone needing a place to stay in Aviemore!
