Ok going to get the negative out the way first the towel rails in the Academy are absolutely lethal, my son (age 11) got out the shower right next to me and leapt in the air on contact, the room is 3917. I phoned reception to advise he had been burnt and a foreigner whom I am not quite sure... More

We have just returned today from Aviemore resort had a great time, the weather was fantastic. Happy enough with the price we paid booked the hotel during January sale on website roughly cost £260 but certainly not happy if we'd paid over £500!! Negatives: The rooms were clean but a bit shabby in the Academy building, there was a mark... More

On our way back from Inverness we stopped a day in Aviemore and stayed at the Macdonald Hotel! Good location and hotel facilities. Great if your are visiting or planning to stay with kids and family (Not so good for couples). Restaurant was busy, Service was very slow and food average.

We stayed here in March 2014 with the purpose of skiing in the Cairngorms for a couple of days. The rooms, the bar, the restaurant and the reception area were pleasant enough, but the hotel corridors are fairly grim and in need of refurbishment (which is currently underway). The staff were all pleasant too, but the information about the area... More

Booked a short romantic break in January. The website hinted at renovations, saying that x number of newly refurbished rooms would be available in the Summer. Turns out, we were right in the thick of it. Noisy building work, blaring radios, builders shouting, dust everywhere. Incredible that one room was open for business whilst the adjacent one was undergoing renovation.... More

My partner and I wanted a weekend break away, and it delivered that. Rooms were o.k, not 4* I expected and we booked an executive room. Nice to have wine and fruit in the room though. The staff were very mixed, some were fantastic and so friendly and other were a bit rude. One lady just butted in while I... More

Had a great time at this resort rooms were basic but for a three star it was clean and had everything you need. Plenty to do at the resort and breakfast was excellent. The stay was made more enjoyable due to two members of staff Doreen on reception who was extremely friendly and helpful and Connor in the Village bar... More

We booked this through Hotel Connexions with doubt in our mind remembering we had a horrible stay with the Macdonald Hotel group in their signature collection hotel Old England Hotel and Spa in Windermere eighteen months ago and still await a satisfactory conclusion but that is another story. Here we arrived at mid day knowing that we were not booked... More
