Lovely family dinner here last week. Though not the cheapest place to dine, the service was great, the reception warm, and the food delicious. Would definitely eat here again.

We again visited The Cairngorm Hotel a couple of times during our annual week's pilgrimage to Aviemore.

A good varied menu and the food served by friendly efficient staff. Good honest fare and excellent value for money. The soup and sandwiches are very popular and for good reason. Always busy - a sure way to tell that it's worth a visit. Have been for lunch on many occasions and have never been disappointed.
