Reviewed 28 September 2010

A group of 5 of us booked the cairns hotel for a seven night stay, one of the couples pearl anniversary when we got there after travelling 10 hours from Leeds, This owner Gareth denied any knowledge of our booking he was most unhelpful. We had to find another place ourselves we were not even offered a complimentary drink or meal and he made noises about finding us somewhere but that was it so please BE AWARE

Stayed: September 2010

Didn't know what to expect as hotel under new management since our last visit. Standards still the same. New owner, Gareth is very welcoming. Rooms very clean and comfortable, slept like logs. Home cooked specials as well as standard menu available daily. This was very popular with tourists and locals alike. Soup particularly popular. The residents of Carrbridge use the Cairn as a meeting place so that says it all! If you like comfort, ambience, log fires and value come here

We chanced upon this hotel by accident. Our luck was in as there was one room vacant as somebody had booked it but not turned up. We could not have chosen better. The proprietor was charming and most helpful. The food was cheap and delicious. The staff were lovely including the barmaid. Would definitely stay again

Myself, husband, and 2 young boys have just returned from this hotel. I have rated this 5 stars all across the board. The room were spotless as was the bathroom. The breakfasts were lovely, grapefruit, cereal, fruit juice, tea/coffee, toast, cooked breakfast, kippers. We also ate in the restaurant at night which was great and relaxing. Starters cost £2.95 and the most expensive was £8.05 which for Venison Pie and mash is pretty great value.

The bar had a right local feel to it and the punters had good banter.

Last, but by no means least, the owners of this hotel are fantastic, they made us feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble, we will definitely return. I will recommend this hotel to my family and friends as you and your family deserve every success. Thanks very much.

We had a very comfortable stay at the Cairn Hotel. All staff are friendly and welcoming and aim to make your stay a pleasant one. Carrbridge is in a great location for enjoying outdoor pursuits or relaxing in a lovely setting, this hotel is perfect for relaxing at the end of the day.

Stayed here for a few nights while doing some walking in the area. It's a good small hotel in an ideal location if you plan on doing some outdoor activities, it's only a quick drive from Aviemore/Cairngorms.

The rooms were very comfortable and spotless, they obviously spend a lot of time and effort keeping them looking good.

The pub was very good, real fire and real ales on tap. My only slight disappointment was with the food, it isn't expensive but not really inspiring just standard pub grub. The breakfast as well was a bit disappointing with only a few things available on it.

The staff were all very friendly and eager to help out.

While we were in Carrbridge we looked in a few of the hotels and this definetly seemed to be the best of them, espcially considering the money some other places were charging.
