Our room was well decorated and furnished with a small but adequate en-suite. The highlight of our stay was the evening meal which was excellent very well cooked and presented...

With the warm welcome, super comfy beds, quiet location, open fires, well stocked bar, really friendly staff, can there be anything more to add? Yes! What a chef! Worthy of any top restaurant, this guy can cook a storm. Fantastic menu, everything we have eaten here is brilliant. Great range of gluten free options, steaks and venison cooked to perfection,...

We visited the Rowan Tree with our two dogs. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and chatty. We had a meal each evening, which was amazing. The breakfast was also lovely. The Rowen Tree was really great with our dogs. We will definitely return again. A big thumbs up for your fantastic...

I stayed at the Rowan Tree Country Hotel for six nights while on a winter skills training course in the Cairngorms. The Rowan Tree has a lovely blend of character, warmth, informality and hospitality. I was made to feel instantly at home. Steven, Monique, Veronika and especially Sheena went out of their way to look after me. Being a veggie,...

There was a roaring fire when we arrived which was perfect. We sat at the bar and the older bar staff were very talkative. The younger ones didn't say too much. The food was fantastic - very filling and cooked perfectly. The rooms were a good size, clean and well kept. The bed was very comfortable. The whole hotel has...

This is a real country hotel. Roaring fires, hearty food, great friendly service and good, clean, comfortable accommodation in the heart of one of Scotland's most amazing locations. If you've ever seen the film 'The Great Outdoors' with John Candy, this place will make you smile as you enter. It's full of character, country charm and warmth. It's very in-keeping...

Top quality food in a beautiful hotel and phenomenal service. Every visit to Aviemore I look forward to my visit to the Rowan Tree, have been going for years now. Mostly because the atmosphere and service is the best I've received. Sheena is one of the main reasons I love this place, what a lovely lady.

The hotel was clean, comfortably warm and welcoming. I asked for a room on the first floor - stairs being a problem. Room changed with no problem, but my room {3} had two steps up to the ensuite bathroom - can't win them all. The lounges were both comfortable with a real fire in one of them. Restaurant was very...
