We have eaten at the Cairngorm every visit to Aviemore but today was a huge disappointment. Sunday Roast Menu offered choice of three meats plus Turkey on Xmas special. First choice - roast lamb was very fatty, overcooked, and chewy. Meat was obviously machine cut - very thin slices. Vegetables small portions and uninspriring. Not very digestible - sent back....

We had a 1 night stay in November to celebrate my wife's birthday.From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were looked after to a standard way above the official 3 stars. We stayed in a lovely modern , spacious and clean room on the 2nd floor, with a stunning morning view of the Cairngorm mountains. We...

We didn't stay at the Hotel but ate there Three times in a week as it was always delicious food. Staff were courteous and VERY helpful-nothing was too much trouble. Atmosphere was great and it was always full - we always went early to get a table. Can't recommend the food and staff highly enough. Well worth a visit.

I never stayed at the Hotel but had occasions to have breakfast for both Saturday and Sunday. The staff were friendly, efficient and welcoming. The food was plentiful, tasty and hot with as much tea and coffee that you can drink. About 14 of us went to the Saturday entertainment, the place was jumping with people dancing and singing. the...

We stopped off in Aviemore for dinner in November 2016. It's difficult to pick somewhere that isn't touristy and a bit of a rip off. Anyway chose the Cairngorm Hotel and can only say it exceeded my expectations. Excellent range of real ales in the public bar and a cracking pint of Guinness too. We only had 2 courses. I...

We were booked in here for a relaxing weekend away however it was far from relaxing Our room was in the older part of the hotel and directly above the kitchen, so it was very very warm despite no heating being on. We opened the window but that made it very noisy. The bed was obviously 2 singles put together...

Visited here twice for dinner during our stay in Aviemore. The food was fantastic and plentiful portions. Reasonably priced meals and a lovely cosy atmosphere. Centrally located in town so within walking distance from our accommodation. Will definitely return when we are next at Aviemore.

The lobby is a little tattered and a little off smelling. the hotel is in the heart of it and walking distance to anywhere. Breakfast was ok but not brilliant, the omlets were aweful but there were lots of...

Went here for Saturday Night Drinks in September. Great atmosphere, Brilliant Band and excellent beer selection. My Wife and I then had dinner here on the Sunday night, the Service was excellent, food was delicious with decent sized portions. I will definitely return to the Cairngorm Hotel, and hopefully next time there will be a room vacancy.

Weekend break in Aviemore was made by this great hotel. Very welcoming staff who have a clear customer focus, nothing is too much trouble. Food in the restaurant was delicious, hearty and plentiful with lovely staff. Breakfast was especially good with plenty options and staff who are very attentive. The room was really cosy and comfortable adding to the homely...
