Buffet breakfast was lukewarm. TV in our room only had three channels plus children's programmes. Reception desk was unattended when we arrived. Loved the had a super -king size bed and large shower. The hotel is well-placed for enjoying Aviemore.

Great food but noisy room
Very good breakfast and dinner, room was a bit dated / tired looking but clean and comfortable, only problem was very noisy been on the first floor lot of noise from ground floor and the very old and noisy lift, doesn’t seem to have any insulation in the walls as you can hear other guests in adjacent rooms and people coming and going through the corridors.

4/10 Fair

Understaffed and dirty
The room was fine, very clean but needs a little tlc, broken toilet seat and peeling bathroom door. The public areas of the hotel were a disgrace! Filthy toilets with 1/7 lights working, tables not cleared in the bar area for 2+ hours, staff stressed and shouting at each other. Our dinner on the first night was not good, bland and fatty, when we said this it was shrugged off! The restaurant was very busy and chaotic. If you don't have enough staff to cope with your guests don't book so many guests!

8/10 Very good

Looking tired
The hotel was looking a bit tired in places. The room was smaller than expected but too much furniture in the room didn’t help. The restaurant was closed so we had to go in the food hall. It was packed with companies, large groups, noisy. You couldn’t hear each other it was so loud. Not relaxing! The staff on reception were a bit hit & miss with the info they provided.
