“Food was really good”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Arrived Friday night for long weekend with our two children 10 and 6, and turned away from Bridge Inn and Ski in doo as full so headed for here and pleased we did! Kids portions were large and tasty. Really enjoyed pork with black pudding. Latter was some of the best I've tried!! Attentive waiter too.

“Great hotel, great location”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

Hotel in great location easy to find with helpful and friendly staff. Room overlooking spectacular views of Cairngorm mountains topped with snow. Good room size, some patches of damp in on suite, and peeling wallpaper in room if you look closely, but great value for money. Evening meal was tasty, good service. Bar had warm inviting atmosphere, staff and locals welcoming and friendly. Live music good but quite loud, surprisingly not a concern when up in the room. Breakfast had good choice and variety. Checkout time very reasonable at 11 and was able to leave my baggage there as it suited me till much later in the day. Great hotel, good value money, would thoroughly recommend it!

“Perfectly cooked, massive steaks!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We went there to try the Tuesday Special menu. The food was really good for the price. We enjoyed it so much we went there for steak night the following evening. The steaks were massive and perfectly cooked. The medium came medium and the rare came rare! There was also a good selection choice craft beer and real ales on tap to wash the food down with. There was football on the bar TV. We didn't find this a problem as the sound was already turned down and there was some cool rock music in the background. Very thoughtful of Mackenzies.

“Aviemore skiing visit”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Rooms were ok, typical for a snow sport visit, shower beds tv tea coffee facility. Beds and duvets were fab well needed after a long cold day on the piste. Breakfast was superb all you could want and more, the breakfast staff were fab shamefully I couldn't tell you her name. We had a room above the bar and we did hear some music but to be honest we were so tired it didn't bother us.

“Fab service, ok food”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Ate on a blustery Saturday night. Service first rate, reasonably priced, good sized portions. Convenient, but not a destination.
