We already knew the layout in Aviemore...so exactly where this was..and if you are travelling by rail as we were, then this is a dream..straight out of the station and across the road..similarly by road..a minor detour off the A9. The hotel is pleasant from the outside and the reception area is very attractive and welcoming. Our room (which was...

Found our way here after been caught up in a bad accident on the A9. Staff were extremely pleasant, attentive without being "in your face" . Huge menu catering for all sorts of tastes. Grandchildren had fish fingers and chicken coupons which were obviously home made, couldn't resist a wee taste , they were delicious. Adults had soup and a...

Location: The hotel is located in Aviemore in the beautiful Cairngorm national park and is a good base if visiting the area, you will need a car though.

We've stayed before but not since having our son, he's now 4 and the family room we had was great! Lots of space and our son even had a special "turret bedroom" (I will definitely request room 124 again next time we visit). Breakfast is fantastic and all the staff really friendly. Honestly can't fault the Cairngorm Hotel and will...

Caroline from the States here (hey Fiona and Harris!). This place is absolutely wonderful. Amazing food in the restaurant, and wonderful people there and in the pub. Plus awesome music on Tuesdays and quiz night Wednesday. Go. Trust me.

Absolute joke. Call to book the day before and was told that they don't do bookings, And then said to come for 6pm got there for 5:45 to sit at the bar and wait to then be told at that time there full and people was sat down eating.

Staying near Aviemore we ate on 2 nights at this hotel. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the service was good and the food was wonderful. The choice and quality for vegetarians was also far above average.

We had a short stay in Aviemore recently and went to the restaurant on the first evening. There is a nice range of meals, including some good Scottish delights like black pudding or haggis. The desserts were amazing too, get the banoffee sundae! It was so good we came back two days later for more!
