Reviewed 20 August 2014

Had an overnight stay on a DB&B summer deal. Hotel a bit dated but the room was a good size, clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and meals were fine. For what we paid we have no complaints. Newtonmore and surrounding areas are lovely.

Spent a couple of days staying here B&B. We had a triple room and had booked here as they allowed us to have our dog. The room was good sized, clean and comfortable if a little dated. The rest of the hotel is also a little dated but in good condition and pleasant.
We ate in the bar and the meals were excellent but the downside is that the bar doesn't serve Scottish beers.
Breakfast consists of cereals, tinned fruit and yoghurt and also cooked options. The cooked breakfast portions were small and served on small plates but toast/tea and coffee plentiful. We were very pleased that they could provide Gluten Free bread.
The real positive of this Hotel is it's staff who were all very friendly and helpful.
I would happily stay here again.

We had a two night stay here with Dinner bed and breakfast.

The room was functional with the usual TV and other stuff.
It's very quiet, so you should have no trouble getting to sleep.

The Dinner was average fare, with a noticeably small Dinner Plate - I suppose to make the dinner look more than it was?

The WI-FI is no-existent - unless you're willing to camp out in Reception for the duration of your stay. I wish Hotels would get Powerline WIFI Boosters of even extra Routers placed around the Hotel- It's not expensive to do and it would keep your guests happy. WIFI is used by everyone these days and Hotels would be daft to ignore that.

The Manager on Reception when we were there provided excellent service.

Thank you for your review - I was disappointed that you felt that the dinner portions were small if anything we are regularly told that our portions are too generous. We have taken on board your comments about the Wifi coverage it is something we are currently looking into. We hope that these points will no deter you from making a return visit

Typical motor lodge-type hotel with large tour groups. Clean room although shower didn't get that hot. Nice lounge for customers with free wifi. Tasty full cooked breakfast included in price of room. Good service and friendly staff. Would stay again.

Booked on a 2 nights B&B with Dinner on first night. £99 total for 2 of us. Seemed too good to be true! We were wary, having read some of the reviews on this site.

We were not disappointed. Arrived 1430 (check in from 1500) to a warm, friendly welcome.

Room available. Large room and bathroom. Very clean . Clock radio by bedside. Not many hotels provide this and you wake up at night wondering what the time is. Excellent touch.

Sound proofing in room (35) could have been better. Sounded like we had a restless baby elephant upstairs, but no big deal. Overall hotel quietened down after 2300.

Service in restaurant was quick, efficient and friendly. Food was excellent. See photos.

A very enjoyable stay.

We stayed two nights in the hotel with dinner the first night. Food was wholesome and reasonable portions, Staff friendly and helpful especially in the restaurant, WiFi in reception/lounge only which was a bit disappointing, room was quite big and very clean with a good very big comfortable bed. The Hotel is bit dated and a little tired but good value just the same as a stopover/ bus tour hotel, Couldn't get a phone signal in our room but thats not the fault of the hotel. If I was in the Aviemore area climbing Munroes I would consider staying there again. PS nice breakfast but personal preference of mine.... please add beans to the full breakfast and heat up the porridge.

Thanks for your review and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do offer baked beans but to give a bit of variation on a full cooked breakfast we change the days that they are offered on. Hopefully the next time you are staying with us they will be on!
