We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights bed and breakfast February into March 2009. The hotel itself is an older traditional building in a great location particularly if you are interested in outdoor activities, walking, skiing, tennis, golfing or osprey watching all close by. The room was warm, comfortable and very clean with a spacious bathroom which had a bath and separate shower. The breakfasts are great with a choice of local produce and the bistro serves good quality food in pleasant surroundings. The hotel is pet friendly so it’s great for bringing your dog who can sit with you, and your drinks, in the reception area at night away from the areas where food is served. One of the biggest assets of this hotel are the staff who without exception were genuinely friendly, enthusiastic, competent and provide one of the warmest welcomes in the highlands. All of the staff, no matter their role in the hotel, went out their way to make us, and the dog, welcome. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to the Aviemore area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Arriving at The Boat Hotel for the first time can be compared to returning as house guests of a close friend, where needs are anticipated before arrival and the welcome is genuine. Where else can you wear your Hunter wellies at 8am, golf spikes at 3pm and dress up or down for dinner? But while we offer our guests comfort, some luxury and indulgence, this is not a stuffy hotel where you can’t sit on the furniture or let your kids enjoy themselves.

Adjacent to the renowned Boat of Garten Golf Club, we boast 2 AA Rosette food and stylish yet relaxing accommodations with exhilarating views.
