After reading the reviews for this hotel before we went we were unsure what to expect. However we did not need to worry. The main building is over 200 years old and it generally reflects this with the odd creaky floors and the decor. It is a three star hotel and does not profess to be more. Some areas are looking a bit tired and it is apparent that much work has been done to meet current required standards.
The main restaurant has been described as like a works canteen, We do not agree. Yes it is large, but you have to be aware that it doubles as a function room. During our 4 night stay it was used for the evening entertainment as well. The serving system used works well, and the staff are quick to take your order, serve and clear away after meals. The menu is well stocked with at least three selections for starters, four for mains and many options for hot and cold desserts. For a fussy eater like the writer I had no problem making my selections. For specific requirements all you had to do was ask.
The bedroom was reasonably roomy, clean comfortable and warm, maybe a bit old fashioned. One comment is that as the room faced east the provision of blackout blinds or curtains would have been useful as it remained daylight until well after 10.30pm and the sun rose very early in the morning.
Overall we found our stay very pleasant and the staff very helpful and obliging. With reference to the more detrimental reports on this hotel we would suggest that the writers could not have stayed here and in some cases could not have been inside the building.
If we are in this area again we would not hesitate to use The Carrbridge Hotel as our base.
