“Great weekend break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

We stayed for a weekend at the end on February and had a really enjoyable break. The food was really good in terms of quality and value, we had a late supper on Friday and a full dinner on Saturday. Both were first class. Bar and restaurant service was excellent, breakfast was mega!

The location is perfect if you want to enjoy Aviemore night life and the hotel bar was packed both nights, with really good atmosphere.

Minor downside was the size of the room, although it was clean and well presented. Overall we were well looked after, had a great weekend and would certainly go back.

We have just had another great lunch here.We always visit the 'Cairn' whenever we go to Aviemore which is quite often.Every time you go here you will be met with a smile by the staff as they are all so friendly.The bar has a great feel and atmosphere to it.
As for the food well its magic always cooked fresh and arrives hot.We usually have the soup and a sandwich excellent value,home made soup and freshly prepared sandwiches you just cant beat it and they are so filling.The bar its self has a very good selection of beers and spirits and you could easily pass a couple of hours here before you know it.

Brilliant hotel in the heart of Aviemore. Central and ideally located for all local activities on offer - and there are lots. The service was second to none. The room was very clean, tidy and tastfully decorated. We ate in the hotel on our second night and again the service and food were outstanding. The bar seems to be the hub of Aviemore with nightly entertainment on offer. Would highly reccomend this hotel. And will most definately be visiting again.

Did not stay at this hotel but had lovely 3 course Sunday lunch for 2 people with 2 soda & limes for £28.50 great friendly staff great table service nice old surroundings in the dining area you can also have other menus in the lounge bar with conservatory but is more noisier.

Would recommend to all ages including family with small children
