Nice hotel
Very old hotel kept up rather well tho, rooms were clean and spacious but looked no where as nice as the pictures. Breakfast was very good. Nice remote and quiet area.

Lovely small hotel, some parts recently updated, others a little more dated. No elevator, but some lovely views. Good food, we enjoyed dinner and breakfast.

Good B&B
This is a nice place with friendly staff. The room was clean and comfortable. The food was good but t beware that the restaurant closes early. Fortunately they were nice enough to serve us right before closing. I was able to easily communicate with the staff via email. All questions were promptly answered although there was still a misunderstanding about my mother's incapacity to use stairs. They made adjustments to move her to a room with less stairs when we arrived. On of our rooms was particularly lovely because it had a nice patio with a large porch to sit on. I would definitely recommend this place when in the area.

Peaceful stay
We stayed here when other plans fell through due to weather. We had a huge room with a bay window and great view of the highlands. Meals were good and the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful

Take this Boat for a sail
The Boat Hotel is a worn but charming gem in Boat of Garten. The bar is family-friendly and cozy, and we found the meals exceptionally good. The room was perfectly adequate and comfortable. The Hotel is located near a number of very nice hiking trails. For those looking to avoid the buzz of Aviemore, a stay at the Boat is highly recommended.
