5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great place to stay in Aviemore
3 bedroom lodge was perfect for 4 adults and 2 dogs. Plenty of space and great that all bedrooms were en-suite. Location was great and the woodland setting was perfect

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Overpriced “luxury”
Stayed in lodges and these must have been amazing in their day but the state of the lodge is like a run down caravan. The resort itself although clean disappointed in all areas leaving the impression that the place is looking run down. There are areas shut down. Large areas not covered by street lighting due to them not working, leaving pathways in darkness, left feeling unsafe. The lodges are next to walking route so you have meandering people walking past. The lodge itself although impressive with the en-suite rooms has a tiny kitchen for the space in the cabin, certainly wouldn’t like to cook for a cabin at capacity. There was no instructions or info left to help, perhaps email would have been good due to Covid. There were lights out in neatly every room, inside and out and walking round you could see others had similar issues. The ceiling in the rooms and bathroom are showing signs of disrepair. Toilet handles loose, mould in showers, ripped furniture, outside steps not even. Certainly not worth the money charging and looking at the hotel, wasn’t impressed so wouldn’t look to rush to book in here.

Aviemore break
A little tired looking but overall comfort is very good. Difficult situation because of COVID and check ins could have been staggered a little to avoid the queuing. Breakfast is only decent but the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.
