Waste of money

the staff were nice but the hotel is dated. The leisure facilities weren't the best either. The sauna wasn't working and the steam room was little more than a moderately warm room. Definitely not worth the money

Poor Service

Location, swimming pool,
We booked dinner bed and breakfast. On both nights we could not get our dinner as the restaurants were fully booked. The queues for breakfast were very long and people who had trains to catch or things to do left. The hotel obviously save a lot of money by having the restaurants undersized compared to the number of guests. The Internet was not available for most of our stay and when it was it was not even capable of handling email. The staff were obviously used to complaints regarding the issues and were generally unconcerned. We will not go back to this hotel.

Comfortable, nice environment, close to shops

Huge area within the hotel area, abundant wildlife, good for walking,
Check-in and check-out were smooth. Lots of rabbits and birds within the hotel grounds - great to watch. Rooms are newly refurbished. The steak club dinner was great - good quality and service. However, there were a lot of corridors to get through to get to the room - not so friendly for people needing assistance.

Location, pool and bed
Bit misleading. Nice stay , room was comfortable for a short stay . We were told sports bar would be open. We went there on the Monday night at 6.30pm to find it was closed! Not very welcoming and other bar was old fashioned and led into main aspects restaurant.did not eat at hotel for dinner as main restaurant had little choice and very expensive.italian restaurant was closed . Overall we had a lovely break, used swimming pool and soft play for our two year old. We're out and about seeing cairngorm mountain during the day and had a lovely meal in cairngorm hotel. Highly recommend it there .bar at main restaurant could do with a refurbishment and be a bit more welcoming.

Great Location, could be better service

Turned up at wrong reception to check in, had luggage including golf clubs, directed to other reception quite a bit away, but no offer of help with luggage. Had to change into golf shoes etc at reception and a good five minute walk with clubs to first tee.

Great location but rooms could do with a re-furb

Quiet hotel, located in the heart of Aviemores pubs and restaurants
The hotel was fine and was decent value on agoda. The rooms were a bit small and the contents of the room were quite old, and in need of a bit of updating. The breakfast was excellent and the restaurant was very nice too.

Aviemore inn

Zwembad en sauna
Onaangename aankomst. Niemand in het dorp kende de naam van de straat waarin het hotel zich bevond, noch de naam vanhet hotel. Uiteindelijk toch gevonden via een pub in de buurt. Inhoud van het hotel 10 x beter dan het uiterlijk liet vermoeden. Toffe kamers en het zwembad en sauna was een aangename afwisseling op onze rondreis in Schotland. Ook het eten was in beide restaurants verrassend lekker.
