We have returned from a lovely weekend in Kingussie, where we stayed in the Auld Alliance for 2 nights. The stay exceeded our expectations and was very good value for money.
The room was very clean, modern yet traditional and captured the highland atmosphere.
Lydie, the owner, was welcoming and extremely kind. She was very obliging and has an excellent local knowledge of Kingussie and the surrounding area with regard to trips and places to visit.
The breakfast was outstanding, mixing french cooking with traditional Scottish produce. As a vegetarian, I was not disappointed and my needs and fussy eating habits didnt appear to be a problem. Everything was homemade, and freshly prepared.
This hotel caters for all age groups, we are in our 20s and usually enjoy a busier, city lifestyle but this break was a perfect atmosphere and just what we were looking for. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in Kingussie, so we didnt even feel the need to venture into Aviemore.
Anyone who find fault with this hotel must consider having their head examined!
Our only regret was not having dinner in the hotel after sampling the fine cooking at breakfast time.
We liked it so much, we plan to return in December when the snow arrives!
