I felt this hotel was more like a 3* in style and service. There were plenty of facilities which is why its a 4* hotel. Bathroom was very small that there wasnt even room to put your toiletry bag. For breakfast some mornings we had to wait more than 5minutes to be seated when there wasnt even a queue or... More

We enjoyed our few nights stay at the Aviemore hotel. Hotel, rooms, swimming pool, cinema and all other areas are exceptionally clean. Our room was tastefully decorated to a high standard and spacious for a family of three. Wifi was provided and was of a decent speed. Breakfast was in the main complex building a short walk across the car... More

If your looking for a peaceful retreat in the Scottish Highlands this is this place to consider. The lodge was spacious, clean and comfortable. The amenities associated with the resort were great something for everyone, especially children. The facility is within walking distance of the main shops and restaurants of Aviemore.

Very good resort. Surprised us with lots to do for the kids, not just a pool. Itinerary provided each day for them (and us) to do. Hotel and room were clean and spacious. Kids loved their bunk beds! Only downside was no bar in the Aviemore hotel or vending machine, so for a late request for bottle of water, we... More

Stayed in the newly refurbished part of the hotel. Perfectly functional and a bit unfinished. Needs a bit of finishing off / warming up! Room service was only just available and not very good. Could be doing with lowering the price by £30 for best value.

Stayed recently at the MAR in a 3 bedroom Woodlands Lodge. Nice place, good wifi - couldn't seem to make any outside calls on the phone though. Tried to report the issue - no answer at reception. On arrival at the lodge there was no firewood or kindling. Asked for some at 1500hrs. It eventually came after the shift change... More

We stayed in the Aviemore Hotel at the Resort. The rooms were recently refurbished to a high standard, only inconvenience is the bars are still being done up so you had to go to the main centre or another hotel for drinks or food, they are all pretty close together so not a big issue. We had a king room... More
