Fairwinds:A Delightful Holiday Destination - Rating 5/5

An extremely relaxing and enjoyable stay. A A warm welcome upon arrival, excellent breakfast, comfortable, well appointed bedroom, everything spotlessly clean and immaculately maintained. The surrounding grounds are a peaceful haven, and beautifully landscaped. The location, in the middle of Carrbridge but set back from the road, is ideal. I highly recommend Fairwinds as a most attractive and high quality destination.

Thank you for your review.The sink in the bedroom is a throwback to the days when the hotel was the manse to the church and en-suite bathrooms were unheard of and some guests quite like it even if somewhat quaint!Having said that, we are looking at ways in which we can incorporate the sink into the bathroom in Cairngorm and Osprey rooms - Osprey certainly in the coming closed season and possibly Cairngorm as well although this is the more difficult of the two rooms to do.

Feel at home - Rating 5/5

A friendly greeting, a wee sherry, a home made chocolate slice in the room - everything about the Fairwinds hotel is designed to make you feel at home. The hosts are lovely, the rooms are comfortable and clean and the evening meal was scrummy. All up - a very welcome antidote to the bland and impersonal.

Stayed two nights - Rating 4/5

We stayed two nights and had dinner on the first evening. Whilst some may find this hotel a little dated you will be made most welcome by the owners and will experience those little extras that sadly is not the norm.

peaceful Retreat - Rating 5/5

The perfect quiet getaway.Proprietors friendly and welcoming.While menu is limited the food is excellent and freshly cooked.Hotel and cabins sit beside a small pond in woodland where you can watch a variety of wildlife while eating.
