On a coach trip around part of the Scottish Highlands we were offered a comfort stop in Aviemore. It was grey, cold, windy and raining. We weren't in the mood for shopping and strolling along the main street was not an attractive option. So we dived into the Cairngorm Hotel as a refuge. We were made to feel welcome and... More

We got into town late and the restaurant was crowded. My dad had muscles and said the cream sauce they were in was one of the best he’s ever had. There are plenty of choices to satisfy any tastes and the desserts were also very tasty.

We popped here on our first night and had a lovely steak. Desserts looked fantastic and we will have to pop back to sample another evening.

The food was superb in this restaurant! Starters and mains were cooked to a very high standard. The scallops and black pudding starter was defiantly a highlight! Staff were lovely and a pleasant dining experience. Also if you attend the quiz night you also get offered free stovies (winner winner)!

Very efficient, helpful and pleasant staff. I discovered the over 60's smaller portion menu. I enjoyed roast beef, boiled and roast potatoes, yorkie and mixed veg. I had soup for starter which was tasty. Husband chose soup and ploughmans sandwich. Sandwich ok. Nothing to wfite home about.
