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

As mentioned by other reviewers, we too found no one on reception. A note directed us to the conference centre. We had booked an exec king room but found ourselves in a small twin room. No one was answering any phones so we had to return to the conference centre. We were then moved to the Highlands hotel in the... More

Just returned from 2 night stay at the recently refurbished Morlich hotel.Normally we stay at the Highlands hotel but this wasn't available on our dates so we were offered the Morlich. Having stayed in the hotel when it was the Inn we were a bit unsure what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Although the rooms are smaller they are... More

On arrival, the signs to the reception are very misleading in the resort. We drove in circles looking for the correct reception area, when we finally located our hotel, we found that there were no staff on the check-in desk & a sign asking us to dial 0 for assistance. We did so and could hear the phone ringing but... More

Recently stayed at the Morlich as part of a business convention. The hotel is nice and certainly the dramatic mountain backdrop sets the scene as you first arrive. The hotel itself has recently undergone a major refurb according to the staff, and on the whole the room itself was good. Liked the modern feel and subtle embracing of the rich... More

My partner and I were looking forward to a well deserved break away. We had booked an Executive King in the refurbished Morlich Hotel. We arrived at 1pm (early) and the lovely man on reception told us he would hurry our room along and to come back at 3ish. Check in is at 4pm, a little late in my opinion.... More

We stayed here as part of our skiing package and paid £163 per night including breakfast and dinner which was a bargain. The standard of the hotel was amazing. The food was exceptionally good in the Italian and the 'steak house'. The hotel staff were very friendly. <20mins to the Aviemore skiing area. A real stunner. I would like to... More
