We stayed here on a promotion for 3 nights in November (they are trying to sell the Hilton Club points based timeshare concept here so giving a huge discount on a short break if you attend one of their presentations) and found the suites beautifully done - great interior design where they have protected and nurtured the character of the...

Set just outside the village of Ballater in the Scottish highlands this hotel is amazing! We booked the rooms online and expected a standard good quality hotel room. What we got was a suite of rooms! Huge bedroom, very large well appointed bathroom with two basins, sitting area with comfortable seating, small dining table and kitchenette with tea making facilities,... More

As some of you know I try to be open and fair with all my comments, and this will be just that. When i initially booked this Hilton, it was done over the phone with Grand Vacations Sales Team, then I visited Tripadvisor to be curious. What I was reading was not great not completely bad but did not give... More

Service was extremely slow, 40 mins wait only to be told everyone had ordered at the same time and my choice of meat balls was handmade. Well it was a Sunday and most restaurants etc expect to be busy on a Sunday lunchtime. Insufficient staff on duty, bar counter covered in trays of dirty crockery that had failed to return... More

Stayed in a suitey attached to the hotel. If you fill it with kids it feels like good value - and they are attracted by Gym and pool. Great place to visit with friends after a wild day in the Cairngorms. Meals are great value.

We spent several days up in the Cairngorms and found it a wonderful place to get away from everything and yet be close to leisure activities in Scotland. The Hilton either had services on site or has a partner/vendor for just about everything you might want to do. There is a great heated indoor pool on site along with other... More
