Cairngorms location.

The rooms are spacious and clean, according to guests, so you can relax and unpack without feeling cramped. Plus, you should find that things like towels and bed linens are changed as often as you need, with good daily servicing of the rooms.


Historic character.

Negative Reviews


Dated décor.

Guests comment on the fact that the rooms are rather tired and dated, so it seems that some refurbishment is in order. It's an old, rather rambling building, so you might find that some areas are a bit dark and sombre too, which may not create the best first impression.


No WiFi in the rooms.

The lack of WiFi in the rooms is a bugbear for guests - you can only get online in the hotel's lobby, and depending on where your room is, this might be a fair trek away. It's a bit of a pain if you just want to check some emails.


Uninspiring menus.

The food isn't to the taste of many guests, who say that the selection can be limited, and the food a little dull. It seems that the hotel puts on special menus for large groups, but if you're visiting independently, you might find that your choices pale in comparison.
