“McKenzies Inn Aviemore Scotland”
Reviewed 29 July 2009

This pub is on the main street in Aviemore town and is therefore centrally located for the town's restaurants and other facilities. Also, it overlooks the Cairngorm mountains and the location is pretty quiet.

The pub has a few rooms and ours was adequately furnished and clean. Bathroom and shower facility were good.

Breakfast facilities were excellent and we experienced a very friendly and attentive service.

One word of advice; don't be put off by the shambolic appearance of the reception area, with boxes scattered around!

The highland Inn is the most friendly ,welcoming place we have ever stayed in.The staff are very efficient and so friendly. This is our fourth year at Mackenzies. The hotel changed hands early last year, the new owners have improved things , ie live music, karaoke,freeand easy etc, however we were not disturbed in our accomodation at all if this wasnt `our thing`. The food is very good with a varied menu and a quick service whether you eat inside or outside.
Aviemore is an easy place to tour from, go on the Funicular railway, visit the osprey center, the Reindeer center, the Steam railway to name a few!
We shall definately be there again next year, cant wait!!!

I have just read this last review and cant understand what they are talking about. We stayed there in june and we found this place. a great little inn to stay at! CHRIS and CHRISTINE, who run the place, was so friendly and helpful and the rest of the staff was brilliant. They had live entertainment on, which was amazin, the bar was so busy that night and the staff was always so pleasent and cheery, even though they was rushed off their feet the whole night. We are music lovers ourselves and we noticed that they always seem to have live music on, which suits us to the tee. Honest if you love music, Mackenzies is the place to go.

Avoid like the plague...apart from the fact that most of the staff look like they could do with a good wash the cramped old fashioned rooms are a disgrace....dirty looking,un-ironed quilt covers, stained worn out carpets and tiny bathrooms with inadequate shower space with a shower curtain that sticks to you...lovely.
Breakfast was ok but thats about the only positive thing I can say.
Do yourself a huge favour and go to the International Rooms and Restaurant a few doors along and you'll see accomodation and food at its finest for practically the same price as you'd pay for this dump !!
