I and my hubby have just returned from the resort of Aviemore.We went skiing for the first time in the Cairngorm Mountains.
We did the pit(so called for the beginners).All was briliant,we booked it through Skinorwest and they were very reasonable.We had 5 nights Dinner/Bed and Breakfast,ski/boot hire and two days lift passes.
We stayed in the Highlands hotel,which was on the Macdonald hotel Aviemore resort.There are other hotels on the resort and a Gym,swimming pool with slide,sauna and steam room,plus a spa.
Dinner and Breakfast,was in the Aspects Restaurant,though you could also have dinner in the Spey Valley resort/Golf club,as long as you book a reservation first.A driver will pick you up and take you and later on,bring you back.(All very organised).It was called a steak house and it was lovely and made a nice change from the hotel.
Now the Pricey bit....The bar,...two glasses of wine,will set you back at least nearly ten pounds and as there were four of us,you can imagine what the bar bill will be.
The staff from Reception to the housekeepers were outstanding and were very good at their jobs.So a credit to all.
It was lovely place to stay and just down the road from the resort,there was plenty of shops and pubs.
I would definitely recommend this place if you are going skiing,climbing and the watersports.There is really so much to do.
