Stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of October. The hotel is situated in the middle of town opposite the train station. There is ample car parking. Upon arrival we received a warm welcome, hotel is clean and stereotypical Scottish. (Tartan carpet and Highland memorabilia). We stayed in room 102 right at the front of the hotel, on a clear...

My wife and I spent a lovely night in Aviemore during the kids holidays in October. Some of the evening was spent in the public bar of the Cairngorm hotel where we enjoyed the lively atmosphere and quality beer. We'll be back.

We stopped off at the Cairngorm Hotel en route for a meeting with friends in Pitlochry. What a lovely old fashioned hotel. Lots of dark wood and tartan carpets. Two friendly receptionists advised us that breakfast for non guests was available from 10am. As we had arrived just before 10, this did not pose a problem. The large Scottish was...

This is a lovely, traditional, Scottish hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the location is perfect. The food served in the bar and restaurant is excellent - they use local fresh produce and the menu is varied. Aviemore is ideally situated in the highlands for many outdoor activities.

Been staying at or eating in the Caorngorm for years now and have never been disappointed! We were there twice this week for dinner and again our meals were great and the staff as friendly and helpful as always. Portions are large and there's no way we could manage three courses, the pudding are always delicious so we opted to...

Stayed one night. Great location in Aviemore. Picturesque hotel. Nice large room. Great restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Getting luggage up the stairs can be a challenge but does not detract from the hotel stay. Would recommend especially if you are going to be enjoying Cairngorms National Park.

We stayed here one night. The hotel is an experience in time travel, back to the 1950s. We enjoyed our stay, despite having to carry our bags up the stairs. The room was small but cozy, with lots of light flooding in through the windows. The restaurant and lounge area were popular with locals too thus book early if you...

We enjoyed our stay so much as the staff were friendly and welcoming, lovely rooms with excellent attention to detail. The icing on the cake was the after service as I left my shoes in the room, so I called and they were posted out to me the same day. Thank you very much

We had a wonderful experience at the Cairngorm Hotel. First off, the customer service was outstanding. All of our interactions with the staff were excellent, friendly and attentive, and I would like to specifically mention Sandra who could not have been more helpful or pleasant throughout our stay, thank you Sandra! This is a very busy location, with the restaurant...

We stayed two nights and found it to be more than comfortable.You have to carry your bags upstairs as there is no lift but we managed. The bed was very comfortable and the shower good. Right in the main street so walk to everything. The restaurant is good and the beer is cold. Breakfast was included and very good. They...
