Much better to opt for half board. Previous visits were on B/B basis. Only choice in evening was grossly inflated steak optoins. This was much better and at a sensible cost. the alternative menu for B/B is not an option unless you are Half Board.

We stayed in the Aviemore hotel, the room was lovely, warm and comfy. The en-suite was clean and fresh. Beyond the room the bar was freezing as was the lounge, so much so you did not want to spend any time there. Dinner in Giovanni's was good, tastey and value for money. Dinner in the steakhouse was very tastey but...

Room satisfactory however bathroom tap not attached properly, we did receive a complementary bag of truffles. Evening dining experience not great as dietary requirements not adhered to.

Easily accessible, a nice choice of facilities. Maybe a bit more choice for food would have been good, but overall very good. Staff nice and helpful, hotel clean & well refurbished. I had a little trouble finding the exact hotel I booked as numerous hotels in the resort area.

Newly decorated rooms, friendly staff. Booked a family room which was lovely. Breakfast location varied on each day, first being Giovani's (notified by a sign placed on fire door), the next day the sign was still in place but the breakfast was actually in the main area of the hotel. No evening entertertainment but would still recommend and stay again.

Great location, leisure facilities are great, pool, steam room and sauna. Resort could be better lit in evenings, quite dark walking from our hotel block to the restaurant area/village. Needs better sign-age too. Didn't know which reception we were to go to or where breakfast was served. Quite annoying that breakfast isn't served in the same building you stay in....
