Reviewed 12 October 2012

Did not stay but nipped in when it was pouring rain. Really warm and cosy, six of us had a family meal there. Food was excellent,service great, portions were huge. Hospitable staff and did not have to wait to long to be seated. All homemade and delicious 10/10.

We stayed for 2 nights in September (our second visit) and would recommend this hotel. It is an old building and you have to allow for that (eg main stair carpet slightly frayed) but the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Service in the bar is excellent even when it's busy - and it does get very busy especially on Saturday night. Live music most nights. A special mention for the breakfast staff who were well organised and cheery ! The breakfast itself was very good with lots of choice although maybe shouldn't charge £1.50 extra for a (not very good) omlette

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back will avoid road noise. We stayed in 115 which looked on to the rear car park

My husband and I had a great weekend here. Hotel has a lovely "castle" theme to it. Staff were very efficient, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We had a room at the front of the hotel, nicely decorated, warm and clean, not a huge room but just right for our length of stay. Only criticism is that the walls are very thin and some guests were not quiet coming along corridor late on in the evening. Hotel always seemed to be busy. Nice bar to relax in for a couple of drinks. Hearty breakfast available or you can select what you want. Service was very good in the restaurant with good choice. We also ate at the Winking Owl just up the road on the second night just for a change, which we would also recommend. Aviemore is a Beautiful place to visit and would stay again at this hotel.

Yes, liked this hotel a lot, full of Scottish charm , nice cosy rooms , lovely food and friendly staff,
The only negative point i would make is the fact that hotel guests cant make a reservation for a table in the restaurant which is always busy and quite often you have to wait for a table. This is quite acceptable for non residents but surely paying quests should be able to have this as standard

Room Tip: ask for a front facing room facing railway, nice view of hills etc.,

We spent a night at the Cairngorm Hotel recently and were so pleased with what we found there. The room was comfortable and had all we needed, the staf were friendly and helpful. The decor of the hotel was very pleasing and lastly but not least, the food was very good. As we were there on a Thursday night, we were lucky enough to try the Highland Buffet, which we really enjoyed. All in all a repeatable experience.

My husband and I just returned from a fanastic weekend in Aviemore - ok the weather helped a little, but the hotel helped a lot! Have stayed at this hotel before and never been disappointed. Will ask for a room at the front of the hotel for our next stay as the birds are definitely early risers! Excellent food, excellent staff, and a fantastic weekend break. Looking forward to our next weekend in Aviemore. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of spending two nights at the Cairngorm hotel, as part of a walking tour of the Highlands. Our room was quiet, comfortable and well-heated. The staff were attentive and the dining room choices were both varied and reasonably priced. The day we arrived, the group went for a two-hour walk. My husband, who's not a real walker, fell behind and, as it turned out, was busy gathering wild mushrooms in the nearby forest. He brought an anorak-full of the mushrooms to the front desk and asked if the chef could prepare a plate of the delectable fungi for our group - which he did! I cite this as an example of how accommodating the staff are. The hotel is decorated in traditional style and one really gets a sense of being in the heart of Scotland.
