We were at a family wedding on the 20th sept first proble the carpet was that bumpy in the lobby I caught my heel and to my embarrassment feel to the floor then after the speeches were done I went to the toilet and got told off as the soup was being served and I was not the only one!!!!! also was asked to hurry with my soup as the hotel had a schedule to keep that was the saying of the day then when our main meal came we were half way through when the waitresses removed the veg of all the tables before anyone could say anything they were gone found the restaurant manager running round checking every 2 minutes to see if anyone was finished alot of people said they felt rushed so never finished their food the wedding cake was cut and the bride had asked that every table got a plate of cake there was a couple of tables that didnt my sister needed to take her son (who has a medical condition with his bladder )was told told she could not go to the toilet as they were doing the line up she explained that she needed to take her son to the disabled toilet as he needed sorted and it was her mothers wedding and she would understand to which she was told she could not use the disabled and had to trail downstairs to the ladies which is to small and not private for her 7 yeat old son I could go on but my biggest problem was the attitude of the restaurant manager dont know his name just that he has glasses and a beard and was the topic of conversation the next day as to how rude he was the wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life I just hope the bride and groom get a very big apology

We stayed 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The hotel is a little tired in places but the room was spacious and clean and the bathroom clean and functional, although the bath linen was past its use-by date.
The food was excellent and the staff very obliging. There was even entertainment in the lounge each evening and a jigsaw puzzle for anyone to contribute to!!
Would recommend a stay here.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The hotel is a traditional Scottish hotel with all the charms and character of an old 'Dame' that is in need of a face lift in places. The redecoration of the hotel is an on going project which takes a little time. Each year we strive to improve another area of the hotel but like the Forth Bridge, as you get to the end you have to start at the beginning again. I do hope we will be able to welcome you to the hotel again and to this special and spectacular part of the world.

Our tour group was supposed to be lodged at Macdonald Aviemore Resort. Instead we were taken to Duke of Gordon Hotel. In room, a memo from Zsolt Balogh, General Manager of
Macdonald Aviemore Resort, found in our room said about Macdonald Aviemore Resort being
unable to accommodate us, "This is due to an oversight on our part and is in no way the fault of
your Holiday Company". Facing the hotel, our room was last on left, second floor. THEIR hair
dryer I borrowed blew the circuit on the floor. 45 minutes to get electricity back. Bathtub was
duct taped on front. Our room looked SHABBY -- not like pictures of rooms on web. Fire alarm
was set off first night -- Fire Brigade came, shut off alarm, found no cause. Faulty Towers???
I realize the hotel was built in 1906 and it's time to bring it into the 21st century!

Room Tip: Ask to see your room before you have to stay in it. If it looks like the photos on the web, fine, if not...............ask where those rooms are!

Good accommodation,good food,excellent staff and good place to tour from.Entertainment good and it was live.Don't expect to much and you will be pleasantly surprised with a bit of scottish dancing too .Another couple of pubs in the town are ok. Don't miss the folk museum just south of Kingussie......excellent.Spent 5 days at the hotel and it was well worth it .

Room Tip: we went for the four poster room....very spacious.
