Had a great weekend with the family at the Highland Resort. Family rooms are in the Academy Hotel which is basic but ideal for purpose, closest to the town centre, and the kids love the pool and soft play.
As we have found with a few Macdonald hotels though, corners are cut and it could be so much better.
The hotel is set in one of the most beautiful areas of the world, with fantastic natural produce on the doorstep. None of that makes onto the breakfast menu, for example - have a look at the Mountain Cafe for what you can do with local produce. Or the cafe at Rothiemurcus and the venison sandwich at Glenmore is a must.
Service also isn't great, Sunday breakfast was really poor and with check out at 11 and the soft play and pool slide not opening until 10 the last morning with kids up from 7 seems quite long!
