We were invited to try this resort following a stay at another Hilton hotel. Our suite was large, clean, immaculate. Excellent furnishings bags of natural light. The staff were attentive, polite and helpful. This is a beautiful setting and the original building has retained a host of original features. This venue is highly recommended.

We were here to celebrate my husbands birthday. The rooms were nice and comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners at the in house restaurant. Good quality and price was quite okay. Service was noteworthy as well. The pool is wonderful, much larger than other properties. Big enough to do laps. And there is also a lovely steam room. We... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. The accomodation is of a very high standard, large well equipped units with plenty of room, very good leisure centre and now a very good restaurant on site.

We we looking for a nice hotel near Balmoral Castle and found this Hilton. We loved our room, the hotel service, restaurant, etc. Couple that with a location that is close to the castle and the town center and we couldn't ask for more. We wish we had a few extra days to stay.

We ended a two week tour of the British Isles here and absolutely loved it. The resort is really welcoming, cozy, and just a restful haven. The units are very well stocked and comfortable, though not very luxurious, they have everything one needs. The country club is outstanding with state-of-the art workout room, squash, two pools, a jacuzzi and a... More

Stayed in lovely open plan lodge with large balcony. We had warm sunny weather during our week's stay which contributed greatly to our enjoyment of the lovely surroundings. The property was in good condition - quality furnishings and modern bathroom. In the hotel the swimming pools were a good size with a hot tub - everything appeared to be very... More

Stayed here for a long weekend! lovely grounds and really well furnished suites. The grounds are wonderful, and the resort is only a short walk to the large village of Ballater so a post office and convenience store are never far away! Overall,the staff were very professional and attentive. The spa/pool area were peaceful and clean. The quality of the... More

We stayed here for a week with HGVC points supplied by owners of 3 other properties. We had a two bedroom lodge (4). The structure itself is tasteful with wonderful views of the mountains and river. Our lodge's location was (thankfully) tucked in a section with the best views on the property. It is a two-story unit with a bedroom... More
