Lovely hotel, nice comfy rooms, great staff, food was excellent, great for exploring Speyside area or for golf groups. Played Newtonmore and Nethy Golf courses, many more within 30 min drive. Pool was excellent, our daily swim was a highlight. Cosy Highland Hotel.

Popped in for a few drinks whilst a couple of times whilst staying nearby on holiday. Cosy little pub area with a good atmosphere and very friendly staff. Would definitely consider booking a room here in future and after seeing the menu I'm disappointed we didn't try the food.

Stayed with a 2 year old and 4 month old for 3 nights in June 2021. Our family room was excellent - clean, bright and plenty of space (double, single plus travel cot). Staff were always friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We ate breakfast and dinner in the hotel during our stay, food was excellent. Enjoyed having the pool to ourselves. Felt completely safe with the Covid-19 measures in place.

We stayed here as a family for one night. The room was spacious and had all the essentials you would require. We are in the restaurant downstairs and the food was great and also really good value for money. The staff were really accommodating to our toddler which was nice. The breakfast the next morning was also reasonable. Would definitely recommend
