We visited this hotel as part of a visit to Cairngorms National park. The hotel was good but a bit tired. The staff were friendly and food excellent. Parking was fine but be cautious you park round the back and initially we thought we were going into the wrong place as when you follow the directions it looks like you...

One of few places to offer single rooms. Conveniently situated just off A9 in centre of town with free parking. Co-op and other shops nearby and 2 fish and chip eateries. Comfortable bed. Shower a bit sluggish on second floor. Church clock chimes every hour even through the night. Good choice at breakfast though 8.15 am is a little late...

Book this to arrive to be met with a run down old fashioned smelly hotel. Looks really rough with broken windows and doors. Receptionist seems to think its not her problem? I don't like running places down but this place is quite possibly the worst establishment and business I have ever came across.

A pleasant stay in this character hotel in the centre of the town. Not a great choice for vegetarians at breakfast which was a bit overcooked. Some nice vegetarian sausages would have been great, The room was a bit bland looking.

Attended on the 2nd January for lunch before getting the train home and popped in as it was the only place serving. I had the hunters chicken which was tasty but came with boiled potatoes which I found and odd choice. My husband had the fish and chips though he couldn't eat it as the fish was full of large...

I picked this hotel due to the fact I was hill-walking in the area and I was something reasonably priced to put my head down. The hotel is in need of refurbishment, however the bedroom was clean,warm and bed was comfy. The staff were friendly and they accommodated us by serving breakfast early so we could get on our way....

Over the past few years we have stayed here for the friendliness of the staff,rooms are basic but we've never complained about the food locally sorcerd and always well well presented. A perfect location for the highlands.
