This review is in respect of the swimming pool at the Dalfaber part of the resort. If you want to swim in a tiny pool for £25 quid (2 adults 1 child) this is the place. Nothing special about the pool. Also be aware that when you use the changing rooms, first impressions are that all clothing lockers are taken... More

Room was what we needed as in previous stays. Staff were always pleasant and helpful although we had some difficulty communicating clearly with waiters at times as they were still honing their language skills. Well-looked after at breakfast time. Food was very good in the evening if some occasional blips and delays with the service, although staff were always very... More

our stay at the Highland macdonald aviemore was fantastic, the quality of service was excellent particularly from Colin the assistant manager at the leasure complex, his handling of our daughters fall and head bump at the pool area was exceptional. a credit to your hotel.

We stayed 2 nights for our anniversary, I didn't like the room on the ground floor so was moved with no problem. We booked an executive room as I wanted a bath, this was expensive at £400 for the 2 nights. but its was very clean and comfortable. Every member of staff we met was friendly and helpful. At breakfast... More

Good standard on cleanliness but not very convenient having to go to another part of resort for breakfast, especially in the rain. also bad fitting door (3215) making it noisy as you could hear everything in the corridor.

Hotel is run down in main reception. No evening entertainment. Staff couldn't care and had to hunt around for them on numerous occasions. Rooms basic and not worth price paid. Our family room was along various corridors and then eventually up stairs so not ideal for taking a little one to.

A relaxing 2 night stay at the Macdonald highland resort. We enjoyed going to the nearby Caladonian hotel. There was live music which was excellent. Normal prices at the bar. We found the drinks a bit expensive in the Macdonald hotel (£24 for bottle of wine)

All in all the resort is very good and the woodland lodge we stayed in really was a home from home that I fully intend to return to. We enjoyed our stay in all aspects except the service provided by some of the staff in the restaurants. We ate in the Italian restaurant on the first and second night of... More

We had a few issues with our lodge, which are being addressed just now so it would be unfair to paint a poor picture, the resort are trying to do what they can to make a return visits more pleasurable. So hopefully that will be arranged for the end of the year, the lodges are roomy and there is everything... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold food and the restaurant was pleasant. The room was small, but nicely presented, fresh and clean. Bed and pillows were very comfortable as well. Only down side was a smell of damp in the corridors leading to the rooms although it wasn't present... More
