Visit to these premises for the first time since it was refurbished. They appear to have done a brilliant job, looked classy. We stayed just before they closed for refurbishment and this visit was to see what differences they had made before considering a revisit. I would say on what we saw that they had done a great job.

The Hilton Craigendarroch Hotel has been taken over by Hilton Grand Vacations. Bedrooms have been converted into beautiful suites complete with microwave, china, cutlery etc. Unfortunately, the Hilton Grand Vacation "model" means Hilton are selling off the suites on a sort of timeshare basis where points are granted according to the size of suite and date of usage. Therefore, when... More

We have just returned from a short break at this accommodation, we had a 1 bedroomed premier suite which was very well equipped and 5 star throughout. The resort itself is top quality throughout, the leisure club is spotlessly clean and the pool, spa, etc is of a high quality. We would thoroughly recommend eating on site as the food... More

We were booked to stay at the Deeside Inn in Ballater but they got a block-booking so transferred us to a suite at the Hilton! What joy! Especially since we were running the Balmoral 10k that day and doing the 3 mile 'Wee trail' race the following day. The suite was beautiful and really comfortable. The staff were very friendly...

We were surprised to see the quality of the suite. We only spent one night, but wished we had more time to spend in this beautiful setting. The suite had all the comforts of home, and the views were beautiful. The staff was excellent.

I have just returned from a holiday at HGVC Craigendarroch. The lounge bar, the restaurant and other facilities have been completely refurbished to a very high standard. The food standard was very good and reasonably priced for the locality. A couple of small negative points - the restaurant was rather hot but give staff their due they kept us supplied... More

We have owned a lodge for some 20 years now. The restaurant (new) serves superb food. The spa is great for relaxing, pool great and the gym has a good variety of machines - to suit all! Peace and tranquillity !!

We have owned a lodge for nearly 30 years but have passed usage to family members for the past 6 years, so our return was approached with some trepidation. We need not have worried. The condition of the grounds and lodges was excellent. Much had changed in the time but most things were to the same high standard. We ate... More

The restaurant was fantastic and very reasonably priced. Our waitress Rachel was very helpful with the menu and her recommendation was thoroughly enjoyed. The only criticism was that the small restaurant was just too hot. There was no air conditioning and we had to ask for the door to be propped open. The staff themselves must really suffer. Perhaps it... More

I've just returned from a week stay at the lodges here and we had a great time. The lodges themselves seem to be undergoing a refurbishment - ours had a new bathroom, but my sister's bathroom was very dated. The lodges are well equipped and comfortable. The entertainment available within the lodge/tv/games is very handy as it is a bit... More
