I had looked at this hotel on line and as it was a Macdonald hotel, I expected a good standard.... Oops, how wrong I was. We were SO disappointed with our room and the public areas ie. 'Lounge' areas, were non existent. The only seating area was an area off the dining room with just tables and chairs. No sofas... More

Although there have been a few negative reviews for this hotel, we found it to be good. The hotel is in need of a refurbishment, but it was very clean and the beds were the comfiest we have slept in for quite a while. The room was a good size and the en-suite adequate. The buffet breakfast was very good... More

We travelled to this hotel as part of the Statesman Rail first class trip. This hotel could not provide us with coffee at lunchtime on a Sunday - it was stated that they had just thrown the last away. Why they could not make a fresh batch is beyond me. Staff were nowhere to be seen, and it lacked the... More

We have just returned from a weekend away visiting friends in Aviemore during which we stayed at the Strathspey Hotel in the Macdonald Centre. Our executive double room was on the 6th floor but faced to the centre rather than to the mountains which would have been ideal. The room furnishings were excellent with a huge 6 foot bed and...

I am currently staying at this hotel and however hard I try I cannot fault any aspect whatsoever. The room is clean, comfy and well equipped and the view is stunning. The food at breakfast and evening meal was perfect and faultless. The biggest asset of all is the staff, they are all a credit to the hospitality industry ,... More

So disappointed with MacDonald Hotels. I have previously used them on many occasions and now been left with a bitter taste in my mouth. I booked the Strathspey hotel at the MacDonald Resort Aviemore to celebrate my friends birthday and was just left totally embarrassed. The maintenance in the bedroom was stocking for any star level. The carpet was thread... More

The MacDonald Strathspey Hotel is over-heated, grubby, with worn out carpets & furniture, chipped baths & toilets. Simply awful & certainly not 4 star. Nice enough staff & breakfast but that's all. The building is ugly, unwelcoming and is usually deserted. It looks & feels like the sort of place that littered Eastern Europe in the 1990's - a decrepit... More

Stayed two nights here with my husband for Valentine's weekend. Very disappointed with the hotel itself. Apparently this hotel which is part of a complex of hotels & leisure facilities, is due to be pulled down within the next year to be replaced with serviced appartments. Check in was a prolonged affair as there was only one member of staff... More
