We stayed over New Year 2016/17 with our 3 year old and grandparents and brother and sister in law. Terrific family stay all round. Rooms are comfortable and the staff very good indeed. Overall the food in the package was excellent, New Year's Eve was a good meal and entertainment with band at midnight and terrific fireworks. Something for all...

This is the second time we have stayed here and I can say we love Aviemore and this resort, I was really pleased when I was asked if we wanted an upgrade.

We really enjoy the hotel, which is excellent and is why we have been going there for many years. However, we noticed that the staff on check-in were not very helpful and their attitude is not particularly customer focused. Improvement in this area is urgently needed to bring it in-line with the standard of the hotel.

We arrived in between Xmas and New Year for 3 nights. The resort overall is really spacious with four separate hotels and an entertainment centre and lovely shops in the middle.

We had originally booked to stay here for 2 nights after New Year. This was to cost £299 which we thought quite expensive but with all the onsite facilities promised we thought it probably worth it.
