Stayed in the Aviemore Inn which is part of the Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort as part of a weekend conference. The best thing about this hotel is it is next door to the conference main venue. Otherwise - lift out of order, keys do not tell you where or which floor to go to, damp on walls, mouldy pictures, toilet... More

This is a very basic hotel with free access to the town local authority access pool....do not waste your time or money. Deeply disappointed in our stay here. We booked this hotel for the weekend as my husband was competing in a cycling event. I thought I could relax in the spa while he was out cycling....there is NO spa... More

My wife and I stayed for a week in one of the units, it had three bedrooms a sauna and all the mod cons you could get. In the main part of the complex there was a well appointed bar and restaurant, you could relax at a table overlooking the swimming pool. The food was well prepared and cooked to... More

Stayed at the Luxury Lodges with a group of friends from the Continent and had a wonderful stay. Staff were most helpful and the setting and facilities were second to none. Lodge was clean and well equipped. I understand from the staff that the facilities are being upgraded in the near future - can't wait to return to experience these!!

I was part of the group with Mark W . My first room there was no wifi after a lengthy heated discussion I was given another room where the wifi worked. Breakfast on the Friday was good but for the next three mornings the service deteriorated drastically. I was the only one who didn't have a problem with house keeping... More

Stayed here in 2 lodges for a family birthday. Facilities good in the lodges and the swimming pool. Lodges have 3 ensuite bedrooms, basic kitchen(no grill or oven). Good wifi in the lodges. Resort is excellent base for exploring all Aviemore has to offer. Stay was spoiled a little not once but twice by the squad of cleaners. First we... More

We visited the resort with a view to potentially staying in the future and quite frankly will avoid MacDonald hotels like the plague in the future. When we arrived we were intending to purchase the day ticket but were put off when we happened to chat to a guest who advised us not to even bother as many items (Jacuzzis,... More

My wife, adult son, and I were pleased to stay here. There are a few different hotels located at the Resort, and we stayed in an adjunct to the Aviemore Highlands Hotel. Our adjoining rooms were clean and comfortable, well appointed, and very clean. The Resort Campus is large, although the walk to the center of town took a few... More

When we stayed here with family members I had hoped we would be staying at a location that was more centrally located. The Resort itself is not a place where one can easily walk to businesses and other sites. The only food on site was at an "Italian" restaurant but it was only "Italian" in name. The rooms were very... More

We booked 4 rooms: Lock broke locking a person in the room. If there had been a fire they wouldn't get out. This room was then not cleaned for the rest of the stay. Bar man didn't know how to make a bloody Mary and when it did come they charged for it twice at £16.20 for a bloody Mary... More
