“A comfortable place”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We stayed in July in a lovely family room, which has a stylish en suite bathroom. The room was nicely decorated. There is a fridge and facilities for drying for guests' use. The service was very friendly (helping us to plan the day's activities) and the breakfast was tasty (alhtough it was only available until 8:45). All in all, a very pleasant stay.

I would highly recommend this comfortable and charming B&B! Peter and Gail were welcoming, personable, and helpful. The rooms are immaculate, comfortably furnished, airy and pretty. The house has a bright, sunny breakfast room, where a delicious Scottish breakfast was served with options to suit any palette, including yogurt and a daily fresh fruit salad. If you have not tried the iconic Scottish dish, haggis, try it here, it was delicious! There is a spacious lounge area where you can sit in the evening and socialize with other guests, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The location of Cairngorm Guest house is conveniently in walking distance to many local restaurants and shops. Highly recommended is the Cairngorm Hotel for traditional food, prepared with a light hand, fresh ingredients and nice updated interpretations. The dining room is beautiful, the prices reasonable and there is usually a bagpiper playing outside.

The Cairngorm Guest House is a wonderful base for exploring the area. The tram ride up Cairn Gorm is not to be missed. We enjoyed beautiful hikes in the Abernethy Forest and up Meal a' Bhuichaille. Our traveling companions had a wonderful day touring the Speyside distilleries.

This is a beautifully appointed, very welcoming guest house. Rooms are decorated to a high standard with lovely en suite facilities. Peter greeted us, settled us in and promptly served up cake to accompany the good selection of teas and coffees provided in our room. Breakfast was extensive with a Special on each day provided by Gail, the other cheerful owner and her lovely team. This was recommended by a local and we can hughly recommend it for its ambience, energy and general enthusiasm. Nothing was too much bother for this team.

The room was great and had the things that are easy to forget (hair dryer,face cloths, Cotten buds ect). The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was bright and clean.

The owners where great, so helpful and welcoming. Any needs we had they where more than happy to help!

The breakfast was very good and there was a lot to choose from, our order was taken quickly as well. The breakfast room itself is great and there are some lovely views.

It's such a homely place to stay and I would recommend it. There is even a guitar and instruments on the stairs!

Peter and I are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. The staff and ourselves do try very hard to make our guests feel welcome and cared for. Our guitar has been played by quite a number of very talented musicians.... unfortunately I am not one of them !!!! Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review. Gail

Stayed here for 2 nights this weekend. Very enjoyable stay. Room a good size and comfortable. Have stayed in Aviemore many times but always at the local hotels. The Cairngorm Guest House is definitely much a much better option.

Room Tip: The Cairngorm room is excellent. Good size room and bathroom.

Our room was very clean and recently decorated and perfect for our purposes: a tour of Northern Scotland by car. We were welcomed and shown to our room a given a nice piece of cake to enjoy when we made a cup of tea.
Our breakfast was possibly the best we have ever had. The dining room was clean with crisp white table cloths; in addition to fresh fruit, cereals and porridge the "full Scottish" was delicious including haggis and black pudding.
Service was friendly and fast; a really enjoyable experience
