We visited through an Itison voucher with the 'unknown' in mind and couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. This was an impromptu midweek break where we were welcomed by friendly efficient staff and an upgrade! The room (101) was spacious with the added surprise of a rolled top bathtub in the lounge. The room was well furnished with large comfortable bed, two lounge chairs and coffee table and of course the 'bath'. Shower and bathroom facilities were fresh and bright with a lovely large shower cubicle, great power shower too. Dinner on the first night was very well presented and tasty, the bar area again was friendly, busy, and especially well behaved, dog friendly. Guest IPA was lovely as was local beer choice, if interested, there is quite a number of malt whiskey to choose from for all tastes.
Aviemore is only a short 4 mile drive with plenty of shopping for all tastes, or an off road walk away from traffic for us walker and dog lovers.
In summary I would highly recommend you test the water iin this boat! For a short or longer break, thank you Dean and your competent and attentive staff and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
