Visiting the Cairngorms- Rating 4/5

We cannot praise this family run hotel enough. A welcoming drink of sherry or whisky, and very tasty home baked cakes in the bedroom. The hotel is set well back from the main road, so there is no traffic noise. Breakfast, served in the conservatory, is very good, and entertainment is provided by the red squirrels playing in the giant redwood. Anyone planning a trip to the highlands should consider this hotel as base toexplore the Cairngorms. The proprietors go out of their way to apply the personal touch, sadly lacking in the chain hotels.

Perfection! - Rating 5/5

We stayed at the Fairwinds Hotel towards the end of three weeks in Scotland and, even though we stayed at excellent accommodations on our trip (and last year’s trip), this was our favorite. We had the Cairngorm room and it was large, bright, very attractively decorated, and supremely comfortable. The bathroom was also large, spotlessly clean, and beautiful. The towels were plush bath sheets. There was a lot of thought put into the rooms so they offered maximum comfort especially the wonderful home-baked tests. Breakfast was delicious, fresh, and prepared to order. We truly appreciate the attention Jeanette and Peter give to all the small details that make a place truly special. It’s really a lovely place in a quiet, lovely setting within easy walking distance to the Carrbridge Kitchen for lunch and the Cairn Hotel Pub (Rowenlea) for dinner.

Voyage photo animalière - Rating 5/5

Je suis venu dans le parc naturel du CAIRNGORMS pour les paysages et la photographie animalière. Mes objectifs principaux étaient les lagopèdes (grooses), les balbuzards pêcheurs (ospreys) et les écureuils (squirrels). Seuls ces derniers manquent à l'appel dans mes photos. Pour les ospreys, je suis passé par Gordon et son frère à Aviemore. Je recommande très chaudement ce spot incroyable où j'ai pu photographier, au zoom réglé sur 300/350 mm, les pêches très matinales des ospreys. Cher mais cela vaut réellement le coup (j'y suis allé 2 fois et j'espère y revenir). Pour les grooses j'ai suivi les conseils de l'hôtelier en allant au lac Lochindorb et pour les paysages j'ai suivi son conseil de prendre la route touristique qui traverse le parc de CAIRNGORMS. Accueil chaleureux et sympathique et localisation parfaite pour mes déplacements. Je recommande chaudement cet hôtel où j'espère revenir.

Exactly as it should be. - Rating 5/5

The hotel is clean, welcoming and well appointed. Exactly as it should be. The parking is good, the room and en suite shower room were clean and contained everything needed and included some additional unexpected nice touches. Breakfast in the conservatory was good and plentiful.In fairness I do not require much 'looking after' and am easy to cater for, but I have high standards. I got the impression the hotel had more to offer should I ask. Nice place, nice people.

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.
