Great place to take kids. Brilliant park, soft play and pool. Supervised play is a good break for parents. Cinema on site is great and plenty to do with shops and bars on site and only a short walk into Aviemore.

40 minute wait for 2 drinks, starter arrived before the drinks. Starter plate was not removed before main meals were delivered. Asked for ketchup and they never took anything over. Also heard a lot of complaints from other guests.

During our evening meal in the Steakhouse and breakfast, the staff couldn't be more helpful and at the same time, non-intrusive. A well presented and comfortable room, although lacking a small fridge and complimentary water! Although short, a very enjoyable stay.

We really enjoyed our stay, reception staff went out of their way to allow us into a room a little earlier. Lovely hotel and very comfortable stay and the facilities that were offered looked good but we were only there for one night so didn't get to use them. Lovely breakfast.

On reaching the property we thought this was going to be a disaster as it looked like a 60/70s building. We got a lovely surprise with the room which was large and furnished nicely with a large comfy bed. Only negative was we had to go to another hotel for breakfast and dinner. In the cold and windy weather it... More
