    the price the location the ambiance the breakfast

    the internal corridors were tired and needed re-decoration and the carpet either needed replacing or at the very least refitting as it was a trip hazard and an accident waiting to happen

    Accommodating in sense of storing bike but that was about all.

    The room was tiny, not clean, holes in the wall and the one piece of furniture was ripped - room 106. The single bed was the smallest I've experienced in any accommodation. We specifically asked at dinner that the fish was kept seperate from the cheese on the platter due to dietary needs this was ignored. One staff member couldn't speak English and kept just answering yes to any question. We were presented with a bill for drinks as soon as we ordered dinner rather than adding this to our dinner bill. The breakfast was poor and obvious they were rushed. Would not recommend this to anyone.

    Beautiful room with gorgeous garden terrace (for the same price as a standard double in the deal we got). Clean and very comfortable. Lovely bathroom with luxurious large tub. Great location by the Strathspey Railway, perfect for exploring a stunning part of Scotland. Restaurant food was delicious although menu is a touch limited (I'm always gutted when there's no beef option!).

    Breakfast was a touch disappointing, a request for no mushrooms and tomatoes was ignored and we noticed that other guests had similar problems. Staff are very charming though and the food itself was lovely.

    The location of the Boat in Boat of Garten is ideal as a base for exploring Loch Ness and the Cairngorms. The hotel is charming, comfortable, and close to a great golf course, the Osprey Center (don't miss it), and the steam railroad.

    Nice and comfortable atmosphere. Quiet location and good sleep. Food was tasty.

    Poor breakfast because: - long wait for ordered dishes - very small portion (only one slice of bread per person) - tables were not cleaned up immediately

    The location is excellent, just next to the Strathspey Steam Railway, and so handy for all rail enthusiasts. The food in the restaurant was also excellent, imaginative menus, delicious. The service in the restaurant was very good. The eggs benedict for breakfast were wonderful!

    We had booked two single rooms. Mine was far too small. Each time I got into bed, I bumped my head on the low ceiling over the pillow. Also the bed and mattress too narrow, and sloping...... next time, we should book a twin room which, I know, is much larger and more comfortable, since I asked to see one just as we were leaving.

    The bed was comfy and the food was good.

    Noisy room above kitchen. Staff had no training and no leadership it was so disorganised it was like staying at Fawlty Towers.

    Standard room was a good size with comfortable beds. Bathroom was clean and well appointed.

    Room was very hot. We had booked a room with a double bed but was allocated 2 singles. Lack of wi-fi signal in room Poor wi-fi signal in lobby Food was not what we expected. Had to eat in the bar which was very noisy

    The situation of hotel is fantastic, situated next to the steam railway station where ,while we were dining in the hotel we watched passengers being served dinner as the train stood at the station platform. We felt we were watching the Victorian days on tv. Another major bonus is the close proximity of the Osprey nests only 5 mins by car. We spent 2 hours watching the three young birds in the nest , mother keeping a watchful eye especially when a buzzard appeared. Well worth a visit. A nice walk after a lovely dinner took us down to the river Spey calm water,full reflections of trees,& the odd cloud perfect ,back in time to enjoy the entertainment in Hotel bar & a wee dram before bed.

    The staff were all very pleasant and helpful.

    Hotel sent e-mail 3 days before my arrival asking if I required anything else, I asked for two things, and on my arrival I found that neither had been carried out. Also there was no where to sit other than the hall because I had a dog,a lounge would have been wonderful. I also had the misfortune to get a bit of plastic in my dinner ok it was dealt with properly,and they apologised.

    Location, within easy reach of attractions of interest to us. Ecellent room, with terrace and lawn area. Welcoming reception staff.

    No lift. Restaurant staff impersonal and aloof.

    Good food Good location Faulty Towers-esc entertainment

    The guy in the tie must be the manager as anyone else who so carelessly got everybody's orders wrong would have been sacked! Surely when the breakfast menu says Mushrooms you'd expect more than one.
