Got a bargain off the MacDonald website for £34 for a double room including breakfast for a one night stay at the Aviemore Inn. It was clearly the quiet season so was upgraded to the Highlands Hotel. I have read mixed reviews about the resort but I always visit wth an open mind! Check in was simple, the member of staff was very nice and extreamly helpful. The room itself was nice and warm, and very clean. You could argue the decor and furniture was a little dated however it did the job. Bathroom was very clean and great shower. The bed was very comfortable indeed.
Breakfast which was served in the Aspects resturant without a doubt, has been the best hotel chain breakfast buffet I have ever had. Fantastic choice and the staff, yet again were excellent. Aviemore is a great location for exploring and plenty of eating places. I never eat or drink in hotels apart from breakfast due to expensive prices, however everywhere is like that no matter which chain you go to so why moan!?
The resort itself seems to be in fantastic upkeep, however walking around the Four Seasons Hotel is where some upgrade is due.
Used the leisure centre which was also very good. Didn't have to take your own towels which is very handy. Very clean and did the job.
Overall had a great first visit to a MacDonald hotel and will return for sure.
