Very tired hotel with the need for a total revamp. The main part of the hotel was very nice but the bedrooms were really dated and not very clean. The bar staff weren't very helpful and had to be asked several times if our food had been ordered. Won't be back.

Went for a spa day here for a friends hen do. The facilities were lovely although the sauna wasn't working and there was no signage to state that it was out of order. The pool was quite big, but very cold. Although we understand kids are welcome in the pool it was quite off-putting as they were bombing into the...

We stayed here as part of a Paultons Park short break. The hotel looks impressive on arrival and the check in service was fine. We then wandered aimlessly to find our family room which was outside of the main hotel. When we eventually found room no 2, the bathroom door was locked so a maintenance man had to be called...

Booked this hotel last minute on booking.com. Lovely grounds and impressive when you drive in. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, okay size and the towels were large and very good quality. The spa was okay but not very luxurious. We didn't eat in the restaurant so cannot comment on that. Breakfast was okay but quite expensive for £17.50 each.

The grounds to this hotel are excellent to enjoy a nice stroll because of this the hotel is always going to have weddings on which limits you to where you can go within the hotel. I liked the idea of staying in a lodge and the lodge we stayed in I found it to be nice and spacious. I did...

We've been going to Aviemore for 17 years and decided this year to have a change. We were welcomed by a pleasant gentleman on arrival. Unfortunately he was the bearer of bad news for our kids aged 9 and 11. NO INTERNET for the whole week! Fortunately they have found plenty of other things to keep them occupied. The cottage,...

My best friend booked us a package for my 18th birthday, bed, breakfast, dinner and two spa treatments. Food was lovely, service was lovely and our room was lovely, a little chalet in the grounds, very cute! The spa was amazing and I would definitely recommend it, the spa staff were also very lovely! Only thing is that the rooms...
