Last minute booking we were warned that our room was above the pub and could be noisy but it was fine. Busy busy place but great fun can't book for dinner turn up and they will give you a buzzer to let you know when your table is ready while you have a drink in the bar. Typical pub food...

This hotel was recommended to us and I have to say it didn't disappoint. All rooms have been newly refurbished, the food is excellent, so much so we ate there both nights. The staff are all very helpful and friendly, fantastic atmosphere in the bar (particularly as the rugby six nations was shown). Will definitely stay here again next time...

After being let down by a nearby restaurant, this hotel was able to accommodate 9 of us for a meal with no fuss. We had to wait 10 minutes which was more than acceptable. Food and Service was so good we went back 2 nights later, again with no booking and although the restaurant was very busy we were seated...

Hope this is just a blip. I've used the restaurant many times over the last 35 years as a resident and as a non resident. Never anything special but ok. This time last week visited with my wife and daughter. I chose the infamous 8 oz burger. Now I know why it's infamous. It was tasteless, like trying to eat...

We had unfortunately booked a table for 10 but turned up with 12. Which is a nightmare mistake only realised upon arrival. The CairnGorm hotel presented us with no options and were aggressive about it. We had floated the option to merely add one person to each end of the long table but they made a drama about it and...

Excellent service in a bar that feels like a pub rather than a hotel lounge. Decent beer and friendly service and good value food (though I think they move you to the coffee shop or restaurant at busy times) Bad weather meant we spent a fair bit of time in here!

Lovely menu, huge portions so don't order too many sides and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it for anyone with kids, without kids, with grandparents, without - just anyone.

Went to the bar for a drink. Bar staff just grunt at you and are unfriendly. Such a shame and embarrassing as I am sure many tourists visit as the hotel has a dominant position in the main high street. Clearly they have become arrogant as they appeared to be busier than most other places!
