My first visit to Scotland was made exceptional by the Craigendarroch experience and wonderful friends.. Stayed in a lodge with amazing facilities. Superb. The highlight was seeing a Red Squirrel. The facilities in the hotel part were excellent. Had lunch and drinks there. Very good value for money and lovely surroundings and staff. Pool facilities were also excellent.

We have just enjoyed a very nice break in a suite at Craigendarroch, this was a midweek, a night and day of relaxation. Everything was as I expected the room was of a high standard spacious and spotlessly clean. The restaurant was very reasonably priced and the menu provided a good choice. I would have no hesitation recommending the hotel... More

An excellent hotel, with spacious rooms and an excellent set of leisure facilities, with two impressive indoor pools, Jacuzzi etc. Located up the hill from the small town of Ballater, the hotel is also close to several walks along and around the River Dee in unspoiled and accessible countryside. If you arrive at the right time of year, 1st April... More

We had a very nice two bedroom unit with a sauna. It is within walking distance to the village and some good restaurants. The coop is a grocery store in the village with a good selection of food and wines. The bar at the resort is very nice and offers many different entertainments throughout the week. We had a great...

A very nice room (2 room suite). Ballater is a lovely quaint location. Overall we had a very good value deal as we were there on a special 3 night package. Apart from the front desk, staff were helpful, although some seemed very busy at times which maybe was putting them under stress, particularly in the bar and restaurant. We... More

We spent two nights in a one bed suite on the third floor. Very pleased with the suite. The only complaint would be the sound of a generator or something starting each morning at 5am. Could be the pool. The windows could also be doing with being allowed to open more, especially as it was a warm weekend. That said,... More

The accommodations were excellent as can be expected from a Hilton property. What I can perhaps add to the many fine reviews is how this spot works as a home base for exploring the Highlands. It worked fairly well. We spent 4 nights here in late July, and this was my first experience driving on the left. Renting a car... More

Craigendarroch falls somewhere between a hotel and a resort. We are at the end of a long holiday trip and chose this as a good place to meet old friends and wind down. It has been a great choice, just up the road from a charming village and with easy access to the Highland countryside. We are four adults staying... More

We only spent one night at this hotel but I wish we had more time there so we could enjoy our room more! It was a two room suite with a kitchenette area and sofa-TV area right off the bedroom, which had its own TV. The bathroom was very nice as well. The whole suite was very clean. It's not... More

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
