“A large childrens playground”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Seems very well set-up for kids and i am sure you will enjoy it if you are travelling as a family but if you are a couple avoid! All facilities are over-run by children making it a noisy experience that we fully regret choosing. Food was good and the staff excellent but rooms small for the price.

Thank you for your review of Hilton Coylumbridge. I was sorry to read of your disappointment with the number of children at the hotel but as a family resort this is usual for us especially at weekends and during school holiday periods. Outwith these times we do have quieter weeks which i am sure you would find more suitable and so hope that you will consider staying with us in the future.

We went for our anniversary weekend. Lovely room. Spotless bathroom, good toiletries and nice fresh towels.
Dinner first night and last night was excellent. Middle night we went to the Italian buffet. We could only get a late slot so most of the hot dishes had gone. Antipasta was good but plates were hot. Gave up trying to get cold ones. It's really designed for families and I wish we had known. It was a bit of a disaster but we'll know next time.

The staff are friendly and James in the dining room deserves special mention. Breakfast was good. Only downside was waiting on waffle machine....a definite hit! Could do with another one when its busy. The waffles are gorgeous. Nice fresh fruits and any amount of hot and cold dishes to choose from. Considering how busy it was we were served with tea and coffee quickly It is very much a family friendly hotel. There were lots of children. Start of the school holidays and mothers day but they were a credit to their parents. Well mannered and well behaved,really nice to see.

Pool is a bit dated and could do with a revamp. We still enjoyed it. The weekend was a bargain and we will definitly be back.

We have recently come back from a 3 night dinner, bed and breakfast stay at the Hilton Coylumbridge and can't wait to go back! Staff are all lovely. The hotel has been beautifully decorated with a very calm and modern feel. Food is great with a great range to choose from in the morning and a varied menu in the evening to suit all tastes. Rooms are very clean with plenty amenities. The lounge is very nice to sit at all times of the day with the bar close by. There was entertainment on 2 nights we stayed which was very good and a nice end to the evening. The hotel is in a great location a 2 minute drive from the centre of Aviemore and not far from the Cairngorms and Loch Morlich. Definitely would recommend this hotel!!

Visited here to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. The hotel itself is a little jaded in the room areas and certainly doesn't seem to have the "Hilton" experience, however, the evening meal was excellent in the restaurant and the dinner, bed and breakfast rate of £95 for two was fantastic value for money. Breakfast in the morning was a bit of a hit and miss affair with the chef who was trying to service undercooked fried eggs from a huge pan of fat looking particularly scruffy and dirty themselves which put me off - we had to ask for coffee, extra glasses, cutlery etc so not great but the food was acceptable. The pool area was good and I enjoyed my morning swim and the wooded bar was excellent with really good service. Overall, we would visit again and recommend to friends and family but would be highlighting that it's not the Hilton that most people would expect.

Thank you for your review on your recent stay at Hilton Coylumbridge. As you rightly say we are not your typical city centre Hilton Hotel, although our property, which was built in the 1960's, fits well into our beautiful surroundings and this is an aspect which attracts many of our returning guests. I was pleased to read that you would consider staying with us again and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

The location of the hotel is great - 5 minutes drive from the hub of Aviemore, but situated in beautiful pine and birch woodland with views of the surrounding mountains. The exterior of the hotel is nothing special to look at. There is plenty of parking in various car parks situated round the building.

The public spaces have been refurnished to very good effect. The foyer area is large, airy, and modern with plenty of comfy seating and a nice bar. The Costa Coffee in the foyer is slightly bizarre though! There is a nice wood fire and an interesting wall separating the bar and foyer lounge made of circles of sawn wood.

There are several different dining options to choose from to suit all tastes - the bar has an extensive range of 'snacks' (although the portions are enormous!), there is a bistro, you can get cakes from the coffee shop, a 50s style diner, and a more formal restaurant. We ate at the bar, the restaurant, and the diner.

At the bar the food was very good and the menu had some really interesting options. However, our order did get mixed up and we found the portions to be more like large pub meals rather than the light snacks they were advertised as.

The restaurant was very nicely decorated with silver birch details. Breakfasts were delicious - a good range of hot and cold options, including fresh salad and dressings, a selection of breads, and a pancake station. Plenty of everything, not too busy even at peak times, and everything at the right temperature. The fresh squeezed orange did taste like it had been mixed with squash one morning. What was provided on the table seemed a bit hit and miss - some tables had milk, some had salt and pepper, etc. We also had dinner here and found the food to be fairly simple but nicely cooked and presented. Would have been nice to see some venison as a main course. We did have some delays with drinks and it took a while to be seated but staff were generally very friendly and helpful.

The diner is a great venue for kids (its situated in the Fun House) and has fairly straightforward kid-friendly but not very healthy food. The decor has been well done and its nice for families taking a break from the soft play!

The rooms are comfortable and very clean but are beginning to look a bit dated, particularly the bathrooms. Plenty of hot water, towels, and very nice toiletries. Sleep quality was excellent - didn't hear a thing on either of the nights we stayed. The peace and quiet is just bliss.

We found all of the staff we interacted with to be friendly and cheerful - no complaints at all here.

The hotel has lots of super facilities for families of all ages - swimming pool, a kid's club, soft play, golf course, tennis courts, play park, bowling alley, etc. You almost don't need to leave the hotel! There is also live music on weekends which the children can dance too - very welcoming and inclusive. Additionally, there is a great apres-ski style bar called the Woodshed which is a nice log cabin style with a roaring fire, friendly and knowledgable staff, pub quiz machines, and local ales - perfect!

We came to this hotel a lot when we were children and had great memories. Lovely to see that the family-friendly spirit of the place remains while some aspects of the hotel have been successfully modernised.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with children there are lots of options - connecting doors, twin doubles, and...

Thank you very much for your review on your recent stay at Hilton Coylumbridge. As your review suggest we are a very family friendly resort hotel although during the week and outwith school holidays we can be quieter for those guests who are looking for this type of stay.

I was delighted to read that you and your family enjoyed your stay and do hope that we can welcome you back again in the future.

Excellent hotel and facilties for family vacation although the rooms and amentities in general are a but run down. For a family vacation in the Scottish highlands the hotel is very well situated in regards to the township and ecotourism, especially Cairngorm Mountain.

Like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your hotel and staff generally. We have been going to MacDonald resort for years and decided to come here for a change. Wish we had done years ago. Facilities are phenomenal for kids and adults. Food and service have also been a sheer pleasure and I can assure you me and my wife are very discerning travellers. First class all round visit and we will certainly be back very soon.

Room Tip: We stayed near the bar area and the noise was not an issue.
