This is run as self catering now but has everything of the hotel it was, except the staff that is. 14 of us being family and friends and two dogs stayed here for a week.

An ensuite room for each when we stayed. All nicely decorated & equipped with everything we needed but some of the showers were quite slow. Laundry room is in the basement which the kids thought was cool. Lovely surroundings, Wildcat number 15 resides here (part of a trail of 130 model cats to be discovered) throughout Newtonmore.

We recently stayed at Alvey House on a family holiday, and it was the perfect location. There were 6 adults and 2 young children in our party. The house provided us with ample space, and was warm, cosy and welcoming. The well equipped kitchen was great for cooking family meals in, and the dining room a lovely location to enjoy... More

We stayed here for my partners gran and papas golden wedding anniversary. The house was fantastic and very accommodating for the 19 of us and even let my inlaws take their 2 dogs, which is very unusual! Having the run of the house was amazing and we all took turns at cooking and washing up, the dishwashers were very handy!... More

Having learnt that Alvey House had changed hands, I joined a group of 20 cycling friends for an exclusive use weekend a few weeks ago. What a transformation in every way!

20 of us from our bike club stayed the weekend past, Ian & Julie couldnt have done more for us, very welcoming, good food just what we needed for a weekend of cycling. Great atmosphere relaxing yet the attention to detail was fantastic, i.e getting back from a soggy day cycling to Tea Coffee and Cakes.... exceptional!

My family and a couple of friends spent two nights in this quaint, comfortable, and recently refurbished B&B, just off the high street in Newtonmore. The view of the rolling hills and meadows is priceless! Ian was a very hands-on host, with a great sense of humour, who immediately made us feel very welcome and later gave us very good... More
