We stayed one night bnb. Checkin was fast and simple. Directions to our room were clear. The room was lovely, large and clean. The breakfast was buffet but plenty of choice and most importantly hot. One small problem was that the shower head was live. We informed reception and were offered an apology and a change of room which we... More

This beautiful hotel is much more than just a place to sleep . The rooms are large and beautifully appointed with heather patterned woven fabrics. Roomy bathrooms with great towels and amenities. The hotel is a city in itself with several restaurants , a bar, shopping center, skiing, horse riding and even a movie theatre! I would give it a... More

We stayed here for two nights and we were a bit concerned about the number of poor reviews we had read. However, the hotel has responded to this sort of feedback, and we didn't see any evidence of the problems that others have mentioned. Staff were always in attendance where and when you expected them, and couldn't have been more... More

The hotel complex is located at a ski resort in the Cairngorms. Our room was small but pleasantly appointed. The breakfast buffet offered a limited number of choices considering how big it was. The WiFi was spotty. There are a couple of restaurants located on site, but the service was slow, especially in the steakhouse, and the menu overpriced. The... More

Although the hotel rooms were a typical MacDonald room the complex is very big with 3/4 hotels in all. Great facilities for families but not for those wanting a quiet get away. The breakfast was in one large room serving all of the hotels in the complex. There were 3 restaurants to choose from and the one we went to... More

I would have rated the hotel a 3 star for an overnight stay. The only reason the rating isn't lower is that I don't feel we stayed long enough to develop a full opinion - it is also because I am being kind. One and a half of the awarded rating is for the bed. The hotel complex it's self... More
