We stayed for one night and was given a separate room accessed from outside. It was quirky and had a big comfortable bed. There was access to park our car at the door. We had a lovely meal within the hotel which is small but full of character.

Booked on a Groupon deal, but wished we booked for the rest of the family! Yeah the hotels a bit dated, but the bed was sooo comfy. The shower in our room was just about a shower, but when your husband has a bathroom showroom that is very hard to beat! But defo needs updated! Prev comments no one about,...

Short and sweet....my lasting impressions. We paid £100 for one night bnb and stayed in the Ministers Room.......dark and dingy with not even a picture on the wall. The room and the hotel is made out to be in keeping with its old styling of yesteryear so the furniture within is all the old, solid, brown wood, traditional style....quite depressing...

Recently stayed here for two nights but most probably won't go back. The hotel is situated off the High Street and is really quiet even though there is a train track behind. The decor is fairly old but you can see they are trying to maintain it as well as they can. We stayed in the Coachman room (i think)...

Our second visit to this hotel did not disappoint, lovely location, room was warm clean and comfortable. Excellent service from the staff. We had dinner on both evenings and the food was good. As the train station was only a 5 min walk away we took the train to Inverness, quick and easy with no hassle of parking!

Had coach house room, comfortable with ensuite. Bed was king size and room had two seater couch and good sized quality flat screen TV. Food, breakfast and dinner was good, and the service friendly. WiFi only available in the public areas of the hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend break which was booked through Groupon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to our Hotel:Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, an oasis amidst the magnificent scenery of the Spey Valley. Shimmering lochs are fringed by sandy beaches, and sparkling rivers lie in the shadows of heather-covered mountains. A paradise for outdoor activities, golf, fishing, climbing, rambling, pony trekking, water and winter sports, and those who appreciate invigorating Highland air, dramatic scenery and Highland hospitality.The village of Kingussie is in the Central Highlands of Scotland, surrounded by the Monadhliath and Cairngorm mountain ranges, it provides the opportunity to explore the peaceful countryside with the chance to see a wide variety of wildlife from Golden Eagle or Osprey to Red Deer Stag and Pine Martin. There is also an abundance of wild flowers, plants and trees. 2 miles from Kingussie is the rspb insh Marshes Reserve, one of the finest wetlands conservation areas in the UK. Many wildlife events are organised from here. Golf Pass available guaranteeing 30% reduced rate at all eight of the finest courses within the Cairngorms National Park.A romantic Highland Retreat, highest standards of accommodation, welcoming hospitality, & customer care. Nestling in a secluded, walled garden with ducks, red squirrels, rabbits, deer, pheasants & numerous beautiful birds in attendance. Regret we cannot accommodate children but offer indulgent refuge for grown-ups wishing to enjoy peace in beautiful surroundings with attentive service, & a relaxed adult atmosphere.All modern facilities while retaining the original charm of the Old Manse & Croft.Various stylish, en-suite, room types, doubles/twins/super-king doubles/a large suite and the superb, triple aspect, Penthouse Suite, with ever-changing views of the surrounding village and mountains, including romantic four-poster rooms with locally hand crafted traditional four-posters, mostly king size, and all with double baths, showers. Personal controllable heating, The pampered comfort we offer tells a story, which speaks for itself, as many guests return time and time again. ”Monarch of the Glen” was filmed entirely in the Spey Valley, including many scenes featuring Kingussie.The sport at which Kingussie excels is Shinty and if the team is playing at The Dell (their local ground) you will have the opportunity of watching one of the oldest Gaelic field sports, performed by a team with an unrivalled record of championship and cup wins in the modern era. So….break free from city life and take to the byways, vast moorland, hills, and highland glens. Breathe in the pure highland air, which brightens the eye and lightens the step. Total freedom to relax, unwind and accept the slower pace of the Highlands. ... more   less
