We have been going to this weekend for 4 years now and it’s always been very good but this year was a disaster. Macdonald has cut so many corners this year obviously trying to squeeze every penny out of it but im almost certain they will be paying for it this year as most of the

Recently stayed here courtesy of TPAS for their annual conference and awards ceremony. Our room was clean and very well equipped. The food was to a very high quality too although toast at breakfast had to be requested a couple of times before being given any. All in all a lovely

We stayed at our favourite hotel overnight while visiting a friend on my birthday. Checkin was swift and professional. Our room was huge with two comfortable armchairs and a huge bed. Everything was as clean and fresh as we have come to expect. These have to be some of the most c

Just needed a break after a long spell in hospital and opted for Aviemore . Hotel is situated ideally for exploring the beautiful countryside which at this time of year is just breathtaking. Hotel is modern and rooms very comfortable and warm. Food in restaurant is very good and

Came here with my girlfriend for our 2year anniversary. We had a lovely stay and the harsh reviews for this hotel is unjustified. The rooms are big and comfy. Staff are friendly. My only complaint is the actual corridors could do with a lock of paint but you don’t sleep in the co

I have a long weekend booked for December with the family and not sure whether the bunk bed room is worth extra money or to stick to classic room ?
Sorry, I had a classic room so not sure what the bunk bed option would be like.

Does this hotel have leisure facilities such as a gym, jacuzzi? Etc? Thanks in advance.
How much is it to bring my dog and can he get into all of the hotels or is it only some of them that take dogs.

I booked the dinner and breakfast option, can you please tell me if the dinner is buffet style or a la carte? If the latter, is it 2 or 3 courses? I take it that the dinner applies to every night of our stay? Thanks

"Highland hotel is a fair hike from the amenities. Don't book Highland Hotel if you are very infirm as there are split levels."
"Building 2 has a shortcut access to leisure facilities."
"If its a family stay (over 4 adults) take the lodge.."
"Just check everything is to your liking when first accessing the room especially if of restricted mobility"
"Top floor water pressure not good so shower quite weak."
