Really delighted with our stay. This was our second visit in less than a year and we will definitely be back soon. The staff were friendly and helpful, the facilities excellent and the food very good. Lovely clean pool. Just a great experience overall.

Although we only stayed one night we definitely wanted to stay longer. Reception staff friendly and helpful, rooms spotless and well furnished. Bedding was luxurious with a mattress topper you sink into and lovely pillows. Towels were lovely and thick and fluffy. Arran Arromatics toiletries supplied in rooms and throughout hotel. Tea, coffee and shortbread also supplied in room. Plenty... More

No A/C and was unusually hot but comfortable rooms. Pillows horrendous, got a crick in my neck! Staff very friendly, I did not mention pillows so they do not know about this. I had a... More

Lovely hotel with great facilities and everything you would want or need. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with modern fittings and fixtures. The Scottish Steakhouse restaurant food and service was excellent for dinner and again breakfast the next morning. The staff are professional and very friendly and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would choose again.

My partner booked this hotel for a birthday surprise weekend in Aviemore. The hotel is nice but being 4 star i expected more from it. The room was spacious with lots of tartan interior but could do with a face lift. We stayed for 2 nights and one of the days our room was not made up. We had been... More

Furthermore, the hotel wasnt kept in the best on condition, sone boards over glass on corridor doors and very dark and uninviting corridors. The hotel was very much out of the... More

Expensive for whats on offer. Tired facilities and poor value for £170 a night! The resort could do with a major facelift with investment in more variety of facility and activity. leisure centre is too small to cope with 3 resort hotels.
