Lovely hotel and room. Good breakfast even if you did have to walk to another hotel in the complex to get it - lucky it was not raining. A problem with something above our room meant we had to change rooms at 4 am. Not happy about this as this problem had been reported already, and we were still put... More

I booked this hotel as a weekend break for my wife who is in recovering from cancer, we do visit Aviemore regularly and this time I decided to choose a 4 star hotel, for some comfort. When we arrived it took a while to discover what Macdonalds hotel we were actually staying in, however it turned out to be the... More

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.

I haven't even been to this hotel yet and I have problems already. I have 2 holidays booked at this hotel, over Christmas and over Easter, and I booked them specifically as they have organised, supervised childcare sessions, which they are still advertising on their website today. However when you phone to try to book sessions (which must be booked... More

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.
