My wife and I had a great stay at Fairwinds Hotel in the Strathspey Room, which was lovely with excellent breakfast. The bathroom was lovely with walk in shower and very modern with underfloor heating. The only comment I would make would be to add a bidet, as room was available, and why is there two wash basins? My wife and I don't wash together so one basin would create space to put toiletry bags close to the basin. These are small points though. Overall an excellent stay.

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.

Wonderful stay- Rating 5/5

Great stay if you want to explore the Cairngorm or the rest the surrounding area. The welcome is very inviting. The room was nice and clean (great shower). The breakfast was one of the best we had on our holiday.You also get a complimentary home bake in the room daily (which were very good).You can eat in a pub or restaurant just a few minutes walk.It's just a bit of the road so it's nice and quiet there.We wish the owners good luck on their grand design (the chapel next to the hotel).The best place if you need some R& R. Oh and very good wifi!

We really enjoyed our stay at Fairwinds.The new owners - Peter and Janette - couldn't have done more to make us welcome. We did miss the delicious dinners that we had while Lindsay and Alison were there, but can well understand the new owners reasons for not continuing with them. We hope to be back.

So far, so good. - Rating 4/5

A beautiful place in a lovely setting (wooded walk right outside the door). Hosts very nice but perhaps trying too hard to make conversation. Breakfast was great, room very clean and comfortable. Bathroom recently refurbished, but room decor a little dated. Proprietors only been there a couple of months, so can be forgiven. I'm sure it will get better and better.
