Me and my boyfriend went to Aviemore at the end of July for the Aviemore stopover music festival. On the McDonald hotels website the prices were extortionate coming in around £700 for two nights however found a good deal on another website. On arrival the hotel was rather difficult to find and not too clearly signposted but went into the... More

Stayed with a student group. Service was great. Restaurant was nice and the food was good. Rooms were nice and clean bathroom shower didn't have a door and that was kinda strange. But over all a really nice to stay

No reception so you book in at the resort centre. No lift working without having to trail through the restaurant on the ground floor. 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. Receptionist told us he had booked us into the Academy (different hotel)... More

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
