Great location for a short break but Hotel is getting a bit tired and in need of refresh. Breakfast was less than average and quite chaotic, chef seems to dissapear often to collect food and guests are left waiting.

Booked for 2 nights on the DBB deal. Hotel was lovely, reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was on the top floor and we had beautiful views of the mountains. The room was spotless and tastefully decorated, liked the complimentary water and the fact that you could listen to the TV/radio in the bathroom. Both breakfast and dinner... More

Stayed in one of the lodges, very comfortable for me and my family. Enjoyed the leisure facilities too. The only problems I had were with the wood for the wood burning stove being too wet and some activities not available, such as the indoor kids bouncy area, which when we asked about at reception, the man on duty just said...

£10.50 an adult for a swim!!!! Wouldn't mind if the standard of pool had been worthy of that but alas no. Okay but not great. Water cold. Water slide operated occasionally. Jacuzzi broken... Get the impression that many paid it because of lack of options nearby (as we did). Not saying not to go just hoping that MacDonald take note...... More

Greeted by a lovely friendly well informed lady on reception who unfortunately is not a reflection of the rest of the hotel! We paid £135 for 1 nights stay at the end of our week long visit to avimore/cairngorm to extend our holiday. Our room was a family room, plenty of space but very very dated. Peeling wall paper, tired... More

Size of family suite was great, comfy beds, very clean. Shame about the lack of television /entertainment: baby in bed by 8 and no free view or movies. Allergy catering excellent. Would go again!!!!!!

Comfortable room. Only down side it was a twin room and I thought I had booked a double. Staff at breakfast and dinner where extremely nice. The evening meal was excellent. We would definitely return.
