Garth Hotel, Grantown-on-Spey

The Garth Hotel stands on the north end of the village square in the heart of Grantown-on-Spey, which is generally regarded as being one of the best preserved examples of an eighteenth century Scottish planned town. Our Georgian high street offers unique and individual shops.

The Garth was built in the 1850's and began its life as an inn. Over the years the hotel has prospered, becoming the premier independent hotel in Grantown-on-Spey with a bustling restaurant split over two levels with the top level giving panoramic views over the gardens and the town, whilst the lower level is popular for family or party dining.

The Garth is perfectly placed for a 2 minute walk to the museum and the High Street and a 5 minute walk to both the Craig Maclean Leisure Centre and the Grantown-on-Spey 18 hole golf course.

Boasting a bar with a choice of real ales and up to 60 malt whiskies, there is also a cosy lounge with a real log fire for the colder days and nights which is a great place to chill out. If you are looking for private dining for parties up to 8 or 22 we also have the perfect space to hold your meeting, conference or family get-together.

With on-site car parking and well maintained gardens that are popular with residents and locals alike, the Garth Hotel is the ideal place for a snack or well earned drink at the end of the day.

The 18 en-suite bedrooms comprise single, double/twin and family rooms. Set in beautiful countryside and the lovely town of Grantown-on-Spey, the Garth Hotel is the perfect place to have a wonderful holiday or take a short break. We have 3 ground floor bedrooms for those with limited mobility and you can bring your dog too as we are dog friendly.

Our restaurant is open every day serving the very best in local produce, freshly and imaginatively prepared in our kitchen. Why not have a pre or post dinner drink in our Cocktail Bar or in the cosy lounge with open fire in the winter months. Our bar stocks local draft ale, bottled beers and of course a superb range of over 60 malt whiskies including an impressive selection from Speyside. Take a look at our wine list and our malt whisky for more information.

The Spey valley is the home of the annual spring 'Spirit of Speyside' Whisky Festival and the Malt Whisky Trail. Some of the finest whiskies in the world are proudly and lovingly produced in this 'neck 'o the woods'. Once tasted, this amber liquid becomes a pleasure to be repeated and the tasting of different single malts and blends is a must.
