Very nice stay.

Pros: The Staff
Cons: Decor upgrade throughout.
Location: Great location for the Cairngorms national park. We also visited the Highland Wildlife Centre which was also great.
Staff really made this hotel shine. Overall the hotel is a tad plain and could do with a bit of an update, however, it is very comfortable and would definitely recommend. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food for both breakfast and dinner. My 4 year old daughter liked it so much she wrote a thank you card to the staff. Well worth a visit.
