The Grant Arms hotel is a favourite place for a short break. The facilities are good with comfortable beds and good showers. Shampoo and body wash included. The food is tasty and well prepared and well presented. Local suppliers are the norm. The BWWC is a useful resource for wildlife lovers with information available as to what is around. There...

We have been staying at the Grant Arms for several years and have learned to book well ahead. We are drawn by the hotel's old-world charm and comfortable surrounds, the excellent in-house bird & wildlife club, good food, reliable wifi and the familiar comfort of our favourite room which we always try to secure. This was our first winter visit...

This was our second visit and my review would be very much the same as that written for September 2014. The food is good and varied but the after dinner coffee is not good - from a flask left in the bar. Surely this could be part of the table service? I was surprised that there is still no offer...

My wife and I wanted to visit the Cairngorms and Aviemore Area. We picked the hotel from TripAdvisor and booked two weeks before our stay. There were standard, superior and Four poster rooms available. The hotel has a rich Royal history. With our booking invoice, the hotel sent us an incredibly extensive information pack which detailed numerous activities available during...

I love the Cairngorms and Moray Firth (wider Black Isle) with a passionate obsession with wildlife. The Grant Arms has positioned itself within this area of interest with great success. While the hotel doesn't cater only obsessives such as me, it does hold excellent resources and links guests for information (sighting) sharing and guiding and watching arrangements with other local...

I came here for the first time for 4 nights in December 2016 for a wildlife birding experience. It was the perfect place to stay with a tremendous ambience and outstanding meals. After a full day out in the countryside, a relaxing G&T and the warmth of the reception rooms to relax in were just the answer. Also the available...

We had a lovely break, wonderful food, guided birding some of the time, lots of good advice and friendly interest. We were also blessed with lovely weather, specially for our visit to the not-to-be-missed Findhorn Valley.
