Swapped our time share to a sleep 8 lodge here last week at Craigendarroch as we had a few years ago, and once again we were NOT disappointed!! Such a beautiful setting, very peaceful and the lodges are very very well equipped. As my husband is disabled now I had previously rang to check on our allocated lodge, to ensure... More

Friends are getting married and seizing upon this as a great excuse to explore more of the country, we pick up our car from Aberdeen and drive into the Cairngorms, where home for the night is the Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Craigendaroch Suites. Bit of a mouthful huh – it appears to be a timeshare style property with individual... More

This is very corporate, very shiny, very impersonal. The bed was very comfortable, in a strange room with a sink, microwave, mock fire and view of a wall. Sadly we didn't sleep well due to the loud air conditioning unit outside. In any event we had been woken by a fire alarm at midnight. The alarm is in the room... More

Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff, amazing setting. We were there Christmas 2011 and they have so many activities to choose from for adults, children and families. As always while in Scotland, everyone is very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

Had the opportunity to stay her in August on holiday in Aberdeenshire. We loved our first night so much that we decided to book our last night there as well. The restaurant, the Keller, has some nice fine dining at reasonable prices, compared to Aberdeen City. We also had an upgrade our first night to a one bedroom suite. It... More

Relatively affordable pricing and good portions with great taste & quality. Good size indoor heated pool although heated temperature could have been more comfortable. Highly recommended for relaxing family... More

OK, let's start with the facts. We were offered a very good 3 night deal from the USA booking office. The catch was that we had to go to a sales presentation for an 'hour'. The premises is actually quite nice with lovely suites and excellent gym/spa facilities. The restaurant is very good value and provides excellent food also. We... More

Recently stayed in a suite at the grand vacations club for two nights. The hotel is nice and the local scenery is beautiful. However, it took about 5-10 minutes to get from the reception area to our suite and it wasn't quite up to my expectations. There was no room service and the food but the food was good in... More

First visit to the new look Craigendarroch Suites following the closure and refurbishment of the hotel and the creation of the new 'suites'. The new decor, soft furnishings and accessories throughout the venue is absolutely amazing, great colours, fabrics and textures. I was however very disappointed in what I had booked, that being a studio suite versus what I actually... More

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant and once again we were bold over with the food and service. The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Well done to the chef and the staff. We will be back. Thank you. The Gibbs party
