Such a shame it's an old hotel With potential but it's so out of date.... Reception staff need customer relation training. Excellent breakfast staff. Yes i would return as it is very central And it was just a bed for the night.

The place had a post apocalyptic feel. We saw no one in the foyer or anywhere else when we arrived or when we returned in the early evening (Saturday). There was no one at reception just lots of empty space and gaping rooms. On closer inspection there was a sign up that told us to check in at the Mac... More

Stayed here as included in ski package. The hotel room is quiet and we had a good 3 night so far. Buffett breakfast is fine... As the hotel is part of the Mac Donald's, there are swimming area, play area, small shopping centre and few different restaurant you could choose from. One thing that surprises me was the evening dinner... More

We stayed for 3 nights, along with 3 other families as a party of 18. The entertainment for the kids, including the pantomime on the 30th of December was excellent. The food on Hogmanay ( New years eve) and New years day was fine and again the kids were well catered for. The only downside would be the quality of... More

The strathspey hotel needs a makeover. If you are here for activities it is good you have all the essentials to chill out in after a long day cycling or skiing. If you are someone who does not like outdoor activities and you are here to slob around the hotel this one is not for you. The highlander is probably... More

Travelling as a family of three, we spent two nights at this hotel - on 14th and 15th June, 2014 and were quite taken in by the charm of Aviemor and in particular, the hotel. Great service, wonderfully quiet rooms, quaint entrance to the hotel and ample parking. In fact the parking is so large it can easily accommodate over... More

Without a doubt, this was the best year yet for a Christmas weekend away to see Santa at the Macdonald Aviemore resort. There was so much for the children this year, from the amazing elves, in particular Basil who ran a number of sessions from decorating stockings to designing t-shirts, to the fabulous grotto, it was truely outstanding.

We have just returned from a short stay at the Four Seasons Hotel. We had 2 nights bed and breakfast at a great price and considering what we paid it was great value for money. We stayed in room 4108 which overlooked the car park and had a view of the mountains. The room, although in need of refurbishment, was... More

I first stayed here 6 years ago. Unfortunately it looks like nothing has been done to it in 6 years. The hotel was perfectly nice and clean etc, just very tired and long overdue for a make over. Breakfast had the usual choices of cereal, fruit, hot stuff and croissants. The choice was perhaps the worst I've experienced in a... More

Stayed here for 1 night with friends as we were in Aviemore for a night out. Checked in at the main resort reception and quoted a higher price than on my confirmation email. After some discussion the receptionist agreed to match my confirmation email. On confirming the original booking I was told this hotel was new to the McDonald resort... More
