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

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and we were very disappointed with the Inn.

My wife and I went away for my birthday and just needed a base so we could see the area around Aviemore so we were not too bothered about where we stayed so we picked the Aviemore Inn. We got a deal of a 3 course meal and two nights for £120. The room was comfortable and clean but the... 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. One of my friends was handed their key in an envelope only to find out the key was broken in half. They were relocated to another room.... More

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. Otherwise - lift out of order, keys do not tell you where or which floor to go to, damp on walls, mouldy pictures, toilet... More

We were travelling in a group and had to go to another building for breakfast as well as dinner, not too much fun in the rain.
