No meals served there in the morning so you have to go over to the resort centre for breakfast. Rooms clean but very dated. All facilities are over at the nearby Highland hotel . All in... More

Stayed here on Thursday night before flying out of Inverness the next morning. We checked in in the conference centre just across the road and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Our twin room was 156 on the 1st floor. It was spacious with a good ensuite but a little shabby and tired. The television was like something out... More

Got there about 3.30pm - no reception so you have to go to the next hotel - the reception area was so busy - then discovered that they were taking bookings from people who had not booked in advance so this was taking ages - only two computers.

We stayed here for two nights for a Stag weekend. The hotel was just average - the room had two beds and was in need of some redecorating and upgrading. There was no one in the reception in the hotel which meant going to the other building to check in. Overall, the place was fine for somewhere to put your... More

The rooms were dull and both lifts were out of order. Upon arrival, the initial lift was not working and we were directed to the service elevator. Worked temporarily. Desks were never monitored.

This hotel was unbelievably bad. From the moment we walked in the door we were assailed by a musty smell. The lift wasn't working, and had not been for a while, so we had to use the service elevator. Naturally the smell there was awful. Our room was old, smelly and generally unattractive. The shower head kept flopping down. When... More

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.
