Well, firstly there were 3 different menus in the public lounge and the menu on thr outside had no relevance to what they were serving inside, so we didn't know exactly what was available. Starters were very poor. Pate was only just passable stuff. And then the burgers we ordered were just two very flat patties of no flavour, texture...

My wife & I had lunch here. Disappointing sandwiches on menu. Chicken & bacon sandwich was caked with mayonnaise and sent back. Ham & mustard was better but bread was from supermarket and squashed/pressed. Accompanying salad and chips were stale. Very disappointing. It does not take much effort to make a decent sandwich for £5.

Travelled to" The Duke" on a coach tour with Cairngorm travel. We have done lots of coach tours with other companies and have to say this is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Hotel itself is clean and well presented. Our bedroom and bathroom were lovely. Only downside of the room 422 we only had a view...

We travelled with Cairngorm Travel and had a really nice stay at a hotel old enough to have loads of character, but kept in good order. Our room was pleasant, with comfortable beds, a tv that worked and bathroom. Thankfully it had a real metal key instead of those ghastly cards that rarely work. The food was good with a...

We booked a coach trip staying at the Duke and were really pleased we did. Lovely warm welcoming hotel, nice spacious room on ground floor, good food in the restaurant and served by charming staff. On the morning we departed three staff members took the time to step outside and wave us off. How lovely. We will certainly be back.

Excellent first visit to the Duke! Room spotless, meals plentiful and varied choices. Staff polite and helpful. Cairngorm Travel once again provided an outstanding tour with driver, Steve providing an interesting commentary about Haggis!! Breathtaking trip up the Cairngorms funicular railway with fresh snow thrown in from 6am that morning!! A bonus was meeting up with someone I worked with...
