Perfect base for Cairngorm and great food and clean accommodation

Found a real gem for bigger groups or families.

A very modern, clean and spacious apartment that is part of the hotel. Secure parking in front of the apartment front door. Apartment has a kitchen, fresh milk in the fridge, coffee and tea. You could make your own meals but the hotel menu offer something for everyone. Food is not fancy but good portions and filling with good quality ingredients. Perfect after a day in the hills. The apartment is very clean and modern, beds are new and good quality mattresses. Shower has good pressure to warm you up after a day outside. Will be back. Sleeps 5 in 3 bedrooms.

Terrific bar staff

I had a great one night stay in this wee hotel.

It's a bit out of the way but the room was of a high standard and the staff in the bar/restaurant (Calum) were very friendly. Only complaint was that I made a point of paying my bill for dinner and the room before going to bed so I could get away sharp but in the morning was told my room still had to be paid. I then waited while lady, who was very nice, served breakfast to other guests then she checked my receipt and admitted it was a mistake. I was a bit annoyed since I DIDN'T take my paid breakfast so I could leave early but ended up waiting about!.
