Well run B&B right in the centre of Aviemore. Comfy with lots of nice little touches. Breakfast gets a 10 out of 10 from me. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming and a credit to Scottish Hospitality. I would definitely recommend this guest house. You will not be disappointed. One of the best I`ve stayed in in Aviemore... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, felt for the price we paid the room was very small as was the bathroom and a little old fashioned. I think there is a big difference in the rooms and didn't realise from the pictures that it would be so small, however it was clean and tidy and the ladies we saw were lovely!... More

Good place to come back to in the evening. Smallish room, smallish shower, but everything worked and breakfast was good. Unfortunately for us, we visited late in the season so many places we wanted to visit were closed. But this in no way reflects on the guest house.

Cairngorm Guest House was very nice. We stayed for one night and the room was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms look newly renovated. Breakfast was good and B&B was in walking distance of everything in Aviemore.

We was in the downstairs room, off the lounge. It had it's own back door, so was very useful for coming and going - even more so, if get a parking space near the door. The room was very clean and the shower, could stay in all day long. Bed was comfy. The wardrobe seemed to be a little damp... More

Stayed here last year so didn't think twice about returning. We were in a different room this time (room 11) which was a bit smaller than the room we had last time which was a room on the front. I would pay the extra for a bigger room as the shower and bathroom were very small indeed. We stayed for... More

Hi beds are always a very subjective subject and the other guests who slept in the room after you, had no problem with the bed. We have in any case renewed the mattress to be on the safe side. Best regards Peter More

nice place, although it was a quick stop just for some warm, a cup of hot chocolate and a cup of tea. Hope to be able to stay there for more than one night so that it would be perfect to go up the Cairngorm Mountain without needing to return to Perth...

Second stay at CGH and just as impressive. Was there with a group of Harley riders last weekend for Thunder in the Glens. Wonderfully clean guest house with extremely friendly owners and staff. The breakfasts are great and set you up for the rest of the day. Nice communal lounge to relax in as well.
