From the moment we entered my wife and I were made so welcome and the warm duck terrine I had been looking forward to all day did not disappoint. With a start like that the meal and the fine Italian red wine carried on the excellent evening. My wife and I both chose the corn fed chicken and that too was a delight. As a dessert, my wife chose the rice pudding and I had the pears. Excellent again so we finished off with liqueur coffees. We have eaten here before and when we return to Aviemore in December we will certainly be eating here again. Management and staff at the Rowan Tree are all superb. Thank You to all of them and especially the Chef.

We had a lovely evening at the Rowan Tree country hotel restaurant. The place was classy and cosy, the food was delicious and beautifully presented and the staff was just lovely. We would have loved to return while on our holiday in Aviemore but sadly we couldn’t, as we got stuck in the snow on the day of our second booking. We would strongly recommend the Rowan Tree country hotel restaurant for a good meal to anyone staying in the area. Thank you for the warmth and friendliness. Two members of the staff made a big impression on us but sadly we forgot to ask for their name. It was the lovely woman who took our second booking and the girl who took our payment.

The food etc was excellent. There is only one comment we would make, we are local farmers and the main product round here is lamb, it would be nice to see lamb on the menu along with venison another local product.

Excellent hotel, comfortable and clean with great amenities. Kind, patient and accommodating owners and staff, we had a small issue with our first room due to my parter being too tall for the double, but easily fixed and remedied and upgraded to a king room without issue. Restaurant part itself is excellent, great food and nothing was too much hassle for them. Would definitely recommend to others if visiting Aviemore or surrounding areas, wouldn’t stay anywhere else now.

I don't give out "10/10" lightly but my family and I had an exceptional experience at Rowan Tree House. We both stayed and ate their for two nights. The rooms were charming, the beds were comfortable, the owners and other staff were very attentive and did their very best to give us whatever we asked for, and the food was delicious. My family and I happily recommend Rowan Tree House!

Nice warm welcome and enjoyed a drink in the bar area pre dinner. Given menus to time to make our choices and decide on a nice matching wine. Difficult to plump for the best food as the scallops were cooked perfectly, the tandoori Monkfish delicious, blow torch sea bass a wow and the dessert just brilliant. A great night out and despite the challenges of Covid a wonderful experience. We'll be back.
