We came across this hotel on our search for a nice pub as our own hotel had closed its bar. It's a pity we didn't know about this little jem of a hotel before we booked our weekend away as we would have preferred to stay here. Its absolutely lovely inside, so warm with a log burner and very dog friendly. The owner Del was fantastic and didn't mind a bit of banter. The locals were very friendly too. Drinks were only served inside until 6pm, but you were able to sit out in the beer garden at the back until 10pm (due to government guidelines). The patio heater in the beer garden was fantastic and kept us warm. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a night booked here but due to COVID he took the decision to safe guard his staff by remaining closed. Had told the booking company. He rang a local hotel and found us a room to help us out. Very friendly guy and when he feels safe enough to open up again then certainly worth a stay.

We stayed 2 nights in the Braeriach Hotel as a family of 4. The accommodation was exceptionally good value with warm and comfortable rooms and a friendly Scottish welcome. Parking right outside too. It snowed while we were there to my children’s delight and the owner of the hotel was able to direct us to a great hill nearby for them to toboggan. Newtownmore is a quiet highland town, there is a local shop and some good places to eat. It also has a lovely 10km “Wildcat Trail”around the perimeter.

My sister, brother in law and I had an overnight stay here on 6th February 2020 and we were all delighted with our choice. After the train journey from York, with a change at Edinburgh, we passed through some marvellous scenery in Fife, Perthshire and on into our destination at Kingussie. Newtonmore is approximately 2-3 miles away and we made the journey by service bus 151, (there are a few alternative service buses) - lots of advice from fellow passengers and a friendly driver were all extremely helpful. On arrival at the Braeriasch, we were welcomed by our host Del, rooms were as described and after depositing the luggage we went downstairs for some much needed refreshments. A good range of soft drinks, beers, lagers, ciders and wines were available - we were in Scotland - and the 'gantry' didn't disappoint either with a fine collection of spirits as expected. Meals were available from 5pm and we all enjoyed our choices - mine were a delicious lentil soup and homemade steak pie, our compliments were quite vocal to our cooks, (Del's other half), Sam and their, handsome - according to my sister!!!- son Matthew - who might have helped out a little ha-ha!) Throughout the evening our drinks were served by the lovely Ellie with support, as and when required, from Matthew. A few locals ventured out in what was becoming a cold evening and I had a very pleasant conversation with Brian who had called in for his couple of pints. Beds were comfortable and checkout came way too soon. In summary if you're looking for a 'Welcome in the Highlands' there's a very warm one awaiting you here. Our thanks to Del, Sam, Matthew, Ellie and Brian

Well where do I start, On arrival we entered the hotel bar what looked like a run down old mans drinking pub, we asked if we could check in and were given our key after been told you must pay now, by whom I assumed was the owner, he was more concerned in chatting to his mates in the bar. We enquired in the morning about breakfast to be told you must order this the night before which we were not informed of at check in. Once in our which I have to say was clean, apart from the coffee splashes over the wall under the mirror. The family room we were given was right above the main bar and very loud until 1am with groups of people singing and shouting, not suitable at all if you had children trying to sleep, the room had very poor lighting, the sink was cracked and there was no where to hang your clothes, the toilet would not flush which we reported and was fixed some time later. But what REALLY offended myself was when the barmaid referred to my husband as "your man friend".
