Our room on the ground floor was very spacious and the breakfast offered good choices.
Our room was missing the tv remote and hairdryer on arrival, so I had to sort that out. Didn’t like the children’s buffet at the Aspect restaurant- not all kids like burgers or sausage...however we enjoyed the Italian restaurant more. Enjoyed the pool, but dissappointed that there is no longer a wave pool. Overall enjoyed our short stay on the whole.
Swimming pool & sauna facilities are great. Kids loved softplay area as well as the playroom.
Room was rather small for the price paid. Long waiting times at the restaurant.
The pool was a good size and wasn't too busy during our stay. Food in the Italian restaurant and Aspect restaurant was very good however most of the kids buffet food in Aspect was lukewarm at best. Having a cinema on site was good especially if the weather is poor. The kids disco and magic show was good and kids really enjoyed it.
Every part of the resort felt very under staffed as if they hadn't prepared for school holidays. During the kids disco/magic show there was 1 member of staff trying to keep on top of the bar and having to run between the bar and the restaurant (which wasn't open during our stay) to pour a pint of Peroni. Not the most efficient process. The customer service left a lot to be desired. If we went back I would recommend the Highland Hotel rather than the Aviemore Hotel as it had a restaurant and a nice bar on site.
facilities for kids- swimming, soft play etc
limited dining on half board offer
Staff were very good with speedy restaurant service. Reception understaffed at times but very friendly and helpful.
Only real criticism was our door keys failed to work for more than a few hours so both keys needed to be programmed twice!
