Really loved this hotel, great location and fantastic food, the food from the bar area was very good value. Great walks around the area and beautiful scenery. The suite that we stayed in was lovely and kept immaculately clean.

Having owned and visited timeshare properties all over the place, this has got to be the finest one we have exchanged into. Different system for finance but still affiliated to RCI. The Chalet was furnished to the best quality as one would expect from Hilton. Lots of extras like a very smart TV with keyboard. A good leisure facility, excellent... More

My husband and parents in law and I stayed in lodge 3 over Christmas and what a wonderful time we had - I'd never visited Craigendarroch before but we definitely will again. We were in lodge 3 and it was great - it had 2 bedrooms, lots of storage space and plenty room for us all. Downstairs there was a... More

These are good sized lodges. We stayed in a 2 bed unit and it comfortably sleeps 4. There is a pull down bed in the main living area but there are two Velux windows with no blinds that may impact sleeping for some. Place was clean and well looked after. There were two new bathrooms with heated floors, one with... More

We stayed at a Lodge in Craigendarroch for 3 nights and when we checked out we found that the town of Ballater and all routes in and out of Ballater were closed due to flooding. We attempted to get to Aberdeen but returned to the hotel after a short drive. Staff could not have been more helpful and we were... More

We booked an overnight stay for Christmas night, with Christmas Day dinner. The suite we had was furnished to an excellent standard, (except for the available teas and coffees which could have covered a better range of choice) and comfortable and quiet. Our one complaint was that is was not quite warm enough on our arrival, and never seemed to... More

Have been visiting my timeshare for well over 20 years and that continues to be an absolute pleasure. The country club facilities have seen a few changes over the years ...... and that's what I'm commenting on here. Pool and spa really enjoyable (tho it would be nice if kids stuck to the kids' pool!), food and drinks served in... More
