Perfect for a short break and great fun to complete the journey to the hotel from Aviemore Station by the Strathspey steam railway. It's easy to take direct trains from the Central Belt and London to Aviemore. The hotel is warm and comfortable with friendly staff and good food. The are a number of pleasant walks direct from the hotel.

This is a friendly, comfortable well run hotel. Lovely relaxed bar and good pub grub. It’s a bit scruffy in places but the excellent staff and amazing location more than make up for this. The bedrooms are spacious and our beds was incredibly comfortable, not always the case in Scotland!

Beautiful building with a very warm & friendly atmosphere. App key was very easy to use. Room was perfect and all done to the highest standard with a highland feel.
Had a lovely nights sleep. Would highly recommend for the price too.

I honestly don't have a bad word to say about this hotel. Easy check in, beautiful hotel, gorgeous room, great location and the food (both breakfast and dinner) was amazing.

Staff are really friendly, helpful and polite.

I can't wait to book and go back again.

Our recent stay at 'The Boat' was excellent.
This is really a fabulous small hotel, which we love coming back too.
Lovely Setting in the small village of Boat of Garten, with easy access to the whole cairngorm area, including Aviemore and Inverness.
Plenty of lovely walks nearby too.

We booked a 2 night stay on their Autum DB&B deal and had a excellent time in this delightful hotel.
We stayed in a deluxe room, (Room 206), which was spacious, well appointed, very comfortable, large comfy bed, large bathroom with 'Highland Soap Company' toiletries and a rain forest shower, over the bath.

The hotel and rooms were spotless and very covid secure.
The food was superb and well presented, whether it was dinner or breakfast.

Magda, Dean and the whole team work so hard to ensure guests have a great stay and nothing is too much trouble.

We would definitely recommend here and we will definitely return
