We booked a two night stay via Expedia which included a “All your Need is Love” package in one of the king sized garden rooms. On arrival we were shown to our room and assisted with our luggage. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were delighted with our clean, bright, modern room with large comfortable bed and large decked patio area leading to gardens. Our room had a chilled bottle of champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries, plate of large bath bombs and candles for our enjoyment. The bathroom was modern with a large bath and large shower head fitting. We had two big fluffy bathrobes to relax in. The room had a large flat screen walled mounted TV although the channels were limited. The tea/coffee facilities and bathroom products were replenished daily as were our romance package treats! We had our breakfast delivered to the room along with glasses of champagne which was wonderful. Be sure to ask for 2 of each item on the breakfast menu otherwise they will assume only one is required.
We ate in the bistro one night and thought the food was to a good standard and offered a wide variety of good quality local produce.
We would recommend this hotel as it is clean, modern and offered good value for money. It is in a lovely quiet spot and was just what we wanted to relax and get away from it all. Its location is superb with a cycle hire shop across the road, near golf courses and it is next to one of the stops for the steam railway (which is worth doing). It is only a 5 min drive from Aviemore where there is a wealth of activities and things to do. We will definitely return and hope to stay here again.
