Stayed here for one night whilst visiting the highlands. Whilst the room itself was clean and well presented, you should be prepared for considerable noise from both inside and out. Fortunately my wife had packed ear plugs so she slept OK, I usually sleep like a log anywhere and everywhere (including the dentist chair!) but had a pretty disrupted night. Given the current staffing crises facing the hospitality industry in the UK I’m loathe to criticise but the complete inflexibility on checking in time was also a little frustrating.
Overall, our stay was good. The room we stayed in was adequate but not worth the price we paid. However, the food was excellent, and the staff were marvellous. The big bed in the room was nice and comfortable to an extent, but the sofa bed was horrible, mainly down to me being too tall for the bed, and the strings from the bed, poking me while I slept. Apart from these niggling problems, our stay was pleasant and unlocked some memories of previous stays in the area. If you are looking for a quiet place to rest your head, this is the place for you, but I wouldn't recommend it to those staying longer than one night.
Hotel & Reception - I have stayed in the Cairngorm hotel several times when visiting Aviemore, mainly because I really appreciate the traditional Scottish decor, it makes the setting special and unique compared to anywhere else which is what lures me back. I received a pleasant welcome from a friendly and helpful young lady managing reception, we were quickly checked in and informed of anything we needed to know (such as details about breakfast and the restaurant opening times) the same young lady was on reception during the majority of our stay (3 x nights) and she politely greeted us and our dog each time we walked past. Rooms - our room was particularly big which was great, we had a dog friendly room which was clean and in good condition, the toilet was immaculate with nice toiletries available and housekeeping visited each day, our large bed was slightly on the firm side for our liking and my partner did struggle to get comfortable. Breakfast - we enjoyed the cooked breakfast each morning and the food was excellent. I didn’t think there was much choice for a continental breakfast (it really consisted of fresh fruit juices, a tray of cheese, ham and yoghurt - no bakery items available although toast was brought out to the table) I have to mention two members of breakfast staff in particular came across as stroppy and I overheard one of the ladies being quite rude and abrupt to the table of diners behind us because they had turned up for breakfast off the street and they were not guests, despite the gentleman having phoned up in advance to be told this was okay (as I heard). Bar & Restaurant - the bar was bustling at night with live music and friendly staff who are happy to chat and make you feel welcome, one evening I asked for a hot chocolate and I received what must have been the loveliest hot chocolate I have ever had! we ate dinner in the restaurant 1 night during our stay, we enjoyed our meal and again the staff who served us in the dining room were also pleasant. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed in the bar which is a bit of a bummer as this meant we only went into the bar on 1 of our nights, but it is completely understandable as I believe food is served in the bar area too - but just something to keep in mind if you are bringing your dog. (dogs are welcome to sit in the Reception area where there are some soft sofas & seats) Overall the hotel was fair value for money, we had bed & breakfast at a rare hotel in an ideal location with free parking - I would come back to stay again and I would recommend to others. Enjoy!…
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal tonight. Fish pie and Steak Pie were delicious. Piping hot and good portions. The Sticky toffee pudding which you generously served with cream, ice cream & custard was amazing!!! Lovely atmosphere & thanks to your hardworking staff. Looking forward to our next visit.
Hotel was just okay, perhaps I had higher expectations after reading the reviews. We paid extra for one of the bigger rooms, it wasn’t worth the money! The shower had barely any pressure and never really got warm. We could hear everything from the room next door and when they were showering the extractor fan sounded like a drill! I didn’t have a good nights sleep due to the tiny uncomfortable pillows. Breakfast was over cooked and not enjoyable and I felt it was thrown at us by the waitress. She was probably trying to be efficient and make sure everyone was being served but she came across as uninterested and slightly rude. The hotel was convenient for an overnight stopover but I doubt we will ever stay again.
We visited tghe Cairngorm Hotel for two nights during our Schotland tour with friends, and enjoyed every minute. The hotel is clean, authentic and with a superb staff. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the food is great and you should certainly enjoy the great typical Schottish atmospghere in the pub. Live music makes the experience complete, as well as the bakcpiper playing outside tghe hotel at night,. We had a great time. Only negative remark we can make, is the too small washbasin in the bathroom . . . due to lack of space. But that's a minor remark.
Convenient to the train station. Room was quite comfortable and clean. Food was okay, but nothing special. Unfortunately, the person at the front desk was often rude to guests and I’ll prepared to answer questions. The stairs are daunting and there’s no help to get bags upstairs.
The staff are the absolute gem of this hotel. We visited twice in this stay in Aviemore and they all were so friendly and couldn’t do enough to ensure we enjoyed our visit. A huge thank you to Alan for all his wonderful assistance. Food was amazing too. Thank you and we’ll see you soon!!
A gorgeous independent hotel, very “old fashioned” in its style but NOT old and tatty like many hotels of this style. Very enjoyable stay fantastic food and a great “pub” style hotel bar. Would happily stay again. Great location dead opposite the train station
We stayed here over bank holiday weekend for a walking holiday. Very happy that dogs are welcome in the hotel (with a £10 per night charge which was fine) and the room itself was decorated nicely. Small, but roomy enough for a couple and a dog and was very clean. We didn’t eat breakfast so can’t comment on this, although it did smell lovely. The view from the room however was amazing! We could see all the snow covered mountains from our bed. My only critiques on this hotel was that our bedroom, which was at the front of the hotel, was possibly the hottest room I have ever slept in in my life - and I run cold! The radiators weren’t on at all so I’m not sure how the room was so hot, but it hindered our sleeping quite a lot on our first night. We then tried to open the window but the pub noise then kept us awake. I asked for a fan at reception and a very helpful member of staff provided one to us which made a huge difference. Once the window was closed, we couldn’t hear the pub noise at all. Overall, the Hotel is in amazing location with walking trails right on your doorstep - we will definitely be visiting here again!…
