            Over all attention & politeness of staff. Room comfort & facilties

          • Single
            9.6

            My room was large and delightful with a great view. The meal was excellent. A real Caesar dressing (not sweet like the bottled glop) was an unexpected joy, and the liver was cooked to perfection.

            The quantity of mash accompanying the calves liver was terrifyingly huge.

          • Group of friends

            Great staff, very friendly in general. Good food.

            Resturant staff need to smarten their act up. It was haphazard in terms of service with non smiling staff. We wanted to look at the menu before we sat at the table , that seemed to confuse them greatly. I asked if the corals would left on my scallops when they were served and was assured they wouldn't be, they were. I asked for vanilla and chocolate ice cream for pudding. I ended up with chocolate, mint and toffee pecan/praline. Table was cramped for 3 people and the cork was stuffed back into the bottle, not sure why. I asked for a jug of water and after an age was given a glass each, never refilled. .

            Nothing the service was shocking

            We booked for dinneq when we arrived. Shown to table 20mins later nn drinks or menus drinks were wrñg when they finally arrived. Food came 25mins. Later. Waiter spilled drink over man at next table.desert was supposed to be raspberry cramachan but it only had 3 in it. They need to visit the 3chimneys on skye to see how its made.wont be back

          • Older travelers

            The Boat is a very well run hotel in the Scottish Cairngorms, surprisingly stylish and very comfortable. Our room was light, spacious and very clean, with an exceptionally comfortable bed and very 'swish' bathroom. The food was very good and service by a mostly foreign staff is very professional. The hotel allows guests' dogs in bedrooms but not in public areas - our room had french doors on to a private balcony with direct access to a lawned area.

            In my opinion, the only downside is that the hotel is impersonal and has a slightly corporate feel - unusual in a small village situation.

          • Single

            Nothing good to say unfortunately

            Service poor, room certainly not 4 star accommodation, evening meal was very poor, breakfast was good though

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            The standard of accommodation was excellent. Room was clean and comfortable. The food standard was very good and the level of service and friendliness was excellent. I would have no hesitation in returning to this venue.

            Location

            Very small television,bedding?clean,needs renovating

          • Couple
            7.8

            The location of the hotel is very good, near aviemore and surround by nature. A steamtrain line is located next to the hotel.

            The hotel claims the money from your bankaccount during booking instead of pay the money the first or last day of your stay. This did not happen with any other hotel that I have booked using this site and no warning is given that you pay during booking.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            The food was very good, staff pleasant and helpful.

            My room was in need of refurbishment, the tariff was high when compared with similar facilities.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            The staff were very helpful and pleasant.The room was comfortable and well serviced daily. The location was just what we needed for a golfing and whisky tour holiday.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Good food and nice beer

            Decor in the rooms was a bit dates. Toast at breakfast seemed to be made with the chepest bread and we didn't appreciate that fact that the manager was having a business meeting which everyone at breakfast could hear.

          • Single
            9.2

            Ideal location for visiting Cairngorms and surrounding countryside..
