“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 6 February 2011

Stayed here for one night after a heavy day on the slopes... a few miles further to drive than the array of hotels in aviemore but definitely worth the 10 minute journey.
The proprietors were very friendly and welcoming, and the place had a very cosy and inviting appeal. Its not in any way modern or flashy, the rooms are basic but adequate and warm.
Food was excellent. We ordered the most expesive thing on the menu but were not disappointed at all.... Breakfast was included in the price of the room and it was spot on.
Free wifi was advertised but didnt seem to be available - no major problem really and not worth causing a fuss about.
We booked through laterooms and were expecting to pay on arrival as is the norm however payment was taken on booking which was a bit of a surprise. Not an issue just be aware this may happen.
On the whole we were really pleased and would stay here again

Reviewed 7 January 2011

Traveled there in a last minute spontaneous whim to have a Scottish New Years, but accidentally made an incorrect booking through hotelbookings.com. When the hotel was contacted they very kindly were able to make arrangements for us after all. Rooms were very clean and there was plenty of space in the family room for all of us. Staff was friendly and the food was great! The best bit was the Guiness bubbler, totally cool. My only problem was that the coffee/tea in the morning had to be requested but the croissants were out-of-this-world. Had a lovely stay overall and was fairly close to the ski resort without having to be too much in the traffic of Avemore.

Reviewed 29 September 2010

The hotel was tired. The information about the menu was laughable. Wines from around the world meant a Chardonnay and a Red Vin du payes. The owner was rude and his cooking was well below par. There were no lights left on on the landing at night and the owner's attitude to his guests was not what one would expect. We stayed at several other hotels and pubs on our recent trip to Scotland all of which were considerably better and in some cases cheaper than the Ossian.

We stayed in Aviemore, or should we say Kincraig 5miles outside Aviemore, in the Ossian Hotel. We found the staff to be friendly and the accommodation to be exactly as advertised. The best part of the stay for us was the expert advice of the local area we received from Tony the owner, his knowlege of activities in the area really helped us get the most of our holiday. Will definately go back.
