Stayed here mid December whilst visiting Aviemore for the reindeers and steam train. The hotel is very well situated, has very accommodating staff, comfortable rooms and delicious food in the downstairs pub. The only minor, minor issue was that the walls were quite thin but not enough to stop us from sleeping. I highly recommend this hotel!
