“why are people moaning”
Reviewed 23 October 2007

i went to the carrbridge in june and i found it great. we had a wonderful greeting from the manger, the room we had was clean and had good facilities. the bed was good the room was good, the meals were great. i found the entertainment great too. i think that the hotel had a great old fashioned scottish feel and you can't go wrong for your money i am going back soon and would reconmend it to anyone!! nicola age 16

i stayed here at the weekend along with a my pipeband, we were playing at a competition in inverness and stayed at this hotel for the weekend, the rooms are simple and standard but u get what u pay for, all rooms had toilet and shower and were all very clean. the hotel itself was a little dated and could do with some refurbishment but was not dirty or shabby.
we had dinner in the hotel on the saturday night and the food was lovely, the bar is not too expensive, we paid around 2.50 a drink which is what u would expect from a hotel.
i have one major complaint about this hotel and that was that the lock broke on one of the room doors and the people were stuck in the room until a joiner came to fix it, the hotel then charged us for this even though it was not our fault and the joiner himself said it was because the door and the lock were so old, the hotel argued with us and demanded that we paid for this!!!!
the hotel breakfast is very disappointing, they served stale cold toast and the full breakfast was a buffet but it had been sitting out for hours so the food was cold and not very appealing, however on the saturday they did put on a nice continental breakfast for us because we had to leave at 7.30am to travel to inverness, this was nice of them since they had to open the kitchen early.
overall i would not return to this hotel again but it is ok if u want to stop over for one or two nights but do not expect to be staying in the hilton!

Sounds like the previous poster had a particularly bad room.

In my experience it is good value for money in comparison to what is available in the surrounding areas. I frequently go there with my family of four and pay between £50 - £70 per night DBB for us all.

The hotel is old and in the slow process of rennovation. It is one of the many hotels that are popular with bus parties - ie low cost.

The rooms I have had have been adequate and clean (with a shower) and I have enjoyed the simple but good meals. I would recommend this hotel to people who want value for money but don't expect a first class hotel.

Stayed for 4 nights friday to monday , management and staff were pleasant, room however was not near the standard we expected , were given an attic style room , with double bed , covering was no where near ample , no shower in room ,which we would have at least expected , room grubby to say the least , could have done with a good clean , overall very disappointed with our stay ,not worth the money , would not stay again !

Spent 1 fantastic night at the Cairngorm Hotel Aviemore then moved to a weekend deal at Carrbridge Hotel, Carrbridge, booked through Easybreaks. Purpose of the weekend stay was to take part in dog sled events with our dogs in nearby Aviemore. Arrived at the hotel just before 4p.m. Temp outside was below freezing and there was no heating in the hotel bedrooms. The room we were shown had a 3/4 size bed with mattress so thin that the outline of the spars below were partially visible. ASsked fro another room and on moving the furniture to set up the dog cage, we found paper handkerchiefs, sweet paper wrappings and what looked like a cod liver oil capsule on the floor under the bed. Spoke to management and also asked about the lack of heating. They advised the heating was just about to go on and could not offer any alternative rooms. Easybreaks could not find us other dog friendly accommodation and neither could the local tourist information. All in all we had to travel the 100miles home without taking part in the sled dog event. Easybreaks apologised and said we would receive a refund and nothing more. will be in our account soon. Altogether a very disappointing trip.

Stayed January 2007
