    Great stay

    Had such a great time! Bar staff there are fantastic. A shame they don’t have local breweries on tap there. The restaurants don't seem to have a middle ground between quick service and slow service though but that is me probably being picky. A lot to do around Aviemore so we were only really around in the morning and evenings, however when we were there it was great.

    Short break stay

    Lift was not working on 2nd floor & as our room was on that floor it was most inconvenient as my husband has arthritis & is waiting on new hip while I have arthritis in both knees

    Fantastic hotel, excellent service

    Fantastic stay at morlich hotel will definitely return. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Room immaculate, bed comfortable and high standard of cleanliness. £25 each to spend on dinner went far and food was excellent in the Italian restaurant. Staff again very friendly and welcoming. Loved the pool and particularly the wave machine. Felt very safe overall and can’t wait to come back.

    4 night break

    Rooms were very clean and no problems at all. The issues were around service in the restaurants and concerns around how serious Covid was being taken. At times in the Morlich Giovannis there were too few staff especially at breakfast and although breakfast was served to you when no staff were available some guests were helping themselves to breakfast food and touching spoons and surfaces which wasn't good. We had issues with a couple of members of staff whose mask only covered there mouth and not nose and another who regularly could be seen taking their mask off, touching their mouth and nose then putting mask back on before continuing service. They could at least have used hand sanitizer. Cups and cutlery were not clean on a couple of occasions and although we saw tables being wiped down chairs were not and often had crumbs on them. We didn't think with Covid standards were as high as they should have been.

    Had to leave town to get an evening meal

    Nice hotel, staff were pleasant enough but we were really disappointed to be informed that there was no availability whatsoever, in any of the four restaurants, for the entire duration of our stay. We were told we would need to make our own dinner arrangements in the local area or further afield. Staff were apologetic, but to recommend a 10 mile drive to a neighbouring town in order to have dinner was very disappointing. Sadly finding a restaurant with availability became the focus of our first day rather than enjoying our break, only to then be further disappointed at seeing many empty tables in hotel restaurants later that evening. I would suggest that guests are notified in advance if availability is tight in order to avoid disappointment & inconvenience on arrival. Otherwise, hotel was quiet, clean & in good condition. Good WiFi. Good shower and a very large & comfy bed.

    Wonderful location shame about the tired rooms

    So this resort review is confusing me. The common areas are beautiful, the food in the restaurant is amazing and the surroundings really nice. However, the rooms are really tired looking and in desperate need of a lick of paint. In our room on the first floor we had a really comfy bed and that is where the positive things end. The bathroom had loads of flaking paint, the silicone around the shower was all peeling off and the protective rubber end of the door stop was missing so was really sharp. For a 3 night stay for 2 people we only had 1 shower gel miniature and to top it off the room was hotter than the sun and had no AC or fan. We turned off the heated towel rail which was on when we came in (in July!!) Opened the window and closed the curtains when the sun was in room but still it was unbelievably hot during the night. All this hotel needs are some small tweaks and it will be top class. The food in the restaurant and the service the staff gave is what you expect for a MacDonald hotel but the rooms were really disappointing.
