We stayed at the Hilton Craigendarroch from the 23rd to 25th May.
We had a deluxe room which we booked via their website.
Our room and bathroom was fine – very clean with a huge bed, and a balcony,
and a nice big flat screen television.
However, the corridor leading up to the room wasn’t too impressive, with a musty odour
and stains on the carpet.
The staff - from reception to the bar and the restaurants were all very friendly and helpful.
However, it was obvious that a lot of the staff were quite new (quite a few East Europeans) and just finding their way around. But no matter the nationality, they were all very friendly.
The buffet breakfast was excellent with a great selection of cereals, fresh fruit, and loads
of ‘stuff’for my full Scottish breakfast.
We only had dinner once at the hotel (Club House) but found it good value and we both enjoyed what we ordered.
There are two swimming pools – one for kids and a games room for adults as well as kids.
There’s also table tennis, squash and a full size snooker table.
The grounds of the hotel are very nice for taking a stroll around.
And of course, for trekkers like us, there’s so much choice of walks in the vicinity of Ballater.
