Stained for 2 nights and loved the room, was quiet and set in lovely area. Food menu was bit limited but that may have been the deal we used. A pity it was heavy rain during our visit so didn't get out to see much of the area.

I stayed for one night on my around the UK tour, although I hadn't booked I was welcomed. Harry could not do enough and even put himself out to help me with a problem I had with my motorcycle. Clean rooms, soft pillows and clean bathroom 10/10. I have read some of the other reviews and quite frankly you can't...

Room wasn't up too standard, wobble stool, tiny tv that the remotes never really worked with, cracks in the walls, the free WiFi didn't work on my or my partners phone, toilet made noises at night time, quite expensive at 70per night for the lack of luxury, only good point was the big breakfast in the morning

One glance of the kitchen said it all. Untidy, two dogs running round, dogs food on the floor, dirty clothes lying on the floor. One of our guests had to walk through the private area, which was not just dirty - but absolutely filthy and very messy. We changed rooms, so that the customer did not have to go that...

We stayed in The Boat House for one night in June. We booked well in advance and were a bit surprised that, for the price, we were expected to share a bathroom. However the B&B was very convenient for our needs. We received no formal confirmation and arrived unsure if we had a room. The owner who greeted us was...

We are a family of 4 and stayed in room 3 for 3 nights. We were welcomed with friendly faces who went beyond to make our stay nice. The rooms were clean and the breakfast that was served was tasty. We also enjoyed visiting their sweet dog. The B&B is very convenient to Aviemore and surrounding areas.

We stayed for 4 nights over the Easter weekend, it's a very nice place, clean and tidy & staff couldn't be more helpful. The breakfast was very good and they give you the option to have it when you want and pretty much what you want. The location is very good with lots of things todo within a short distance....

Really lovely staff (and a really cute dog!). So helpful! Went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Place was nice and clean, and they were more than happy to provide us with extra stuff, such as plates, so we could eat in our room, and a map. Nice breakfast included and (as apparent) its is really...

On a day trip to Inverness we cut things too fine to travel back to Lanarkshire before dark. We reached Aviemore when already dark so contacted a relative who knows the area. She arranged for us (3 adults, 3 children and a 3 week old baby) rooms at The Boat House which was just a 5 minute drive away. We...
