One night stay here before we headed to the Aviemore Half Marathon. The reception was welcoming. Check in couldn't have been easier. Service was top class and food and drinks were excellent. Quite pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for.

The hotel itself was lovely. Staff were cold on arrival, and would not accept a split payment for the room. Our tv was broken, and we had to call four times before someone eventually came up after an hour and a half, to tell us they couldn't fix it (without looking at it). Not what you would expect when you...

Was not worth the money, bar closes at 10pm. Breakfast was like feeding time at the zoo. For the money we would have liked to be served. Lunch was even poorer in the Spey centre.would not recommend for the money it cost

My wife and I had been using the hotel's swimming pool, sauna and steam room for quite a few years. It is a great place to relax after a hard day's work. I find that the maintenance of the gents' shower has been gradually deteriorating during the past 12-18 months. Out of the three shower cubicles I examined (the forth...

This would be a 1 star review save for the excellent staff. We brought 4 children and were hoping for good wet weather facilities for them.
