    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Friendly staff and good service

      The extortionate price of the drinks in the hotel bar! Outrageous. Hotel bar lacked atmosphere because no one was there. No wonder at £17.80 for two drinks (doubles) but very small measures.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      The location is excellent, especially as a base for a family with children. The Highland Wildlife Park, Cairngorm Funicular Railway and Landmark Adventure Park are all reasonably close by with lots of other attractions not far away. It's also handy for a short wander into Aviemore itself for an evening meal. Good places to eat close by include Papa Rocks and especially the Cairngorm Hotel (right next to the main entrance to the McDonald Resort). If you have young children the soft play area is fantastic - huge in size and on many levels! The pool isn't bad either.

      It's looking a bit dated. The rooms could do with freshening up, some of the furniture could do with replacing and the bathroom had lots of cracks & general signs of plenty wear'n'tear. To be honest it felt more like a 3 star hotel than a 4 star. I would have expected a small fridge and a better selection of tv programmes (especially for the kids).

      Excellent room , super friendly and respectful staff .The room we were allocated took into consideration my partners special needs as she cannot walk upstairs due to a chest complaint. I would stay again and would recommend the Macdonald to anyone.

    • Couple
      6.6

      Great location in the centre of Aviemore. Reception and breakfast were friendly and I would definitely recommend the breakfast.

      Overall the room and bathroom were as clean as they could be however both are in desperate need of a refurb.

    • Couple
      8.8

      Great location with an excellent room.

    • Older travelers
      9.4

      Very good. Marvellous location. Excellent breakfast! Have stayed here on several locations and would certainly stay again

      No hot water in morning (apparently a boiler problem) otherwise no problem

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Everything about the hotel is great. We have stayed several times and are never disappointed with anything - from service to food !!! The staff are great, nothing is a problem for them. I love that there is everything within the complex so you dont have to venture far for something to do if you dont want to. Overall - great hotel and fabulous staff - cannot recommend this hotel high enough.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Its location to surrounding activities as well as the ones on offer at the resort

      We were disappointed that the jacuzi and steam room were ouit of otrder during our visit

    • Older travelers
      5.4

      Convenient for local restaurants and facilities

      Hotel building and layout very old fashioned and dated

    • Couple
      7.4

      The room, food and staff were very good.

      The bar prices were too high, the steam room and jacuzzi were out of order, the spa treatments were fully booked, there was no fridge/CD or DVD player in the room as advertised, and our bed wasn't made on the Saturday.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      It is centrally located in Aviemore and yet still retains an air of being in the countryside. The leisure facilities were extensive, especially the swimming pool, which was very large.

      If anything, the room was maybe slightly worn but it was large, clean and comfortable.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      everything close together as the weather was very poor

      Food and drink veryexpensive

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      great staff excellent breakfast

      rooms in good condition but could do with a bit of a upgrade

    • Couple
      10.0

      Had a great stay! Need the televisions updated tho. Also waited 4 hours on a dvd player

    • Couple
      10.0

      Excellent rooms and the best hotel breakfast we have had.

      The hotel is one of four on a large complex and it took us about thirty minutes from arrival to find our hotel and room. Better signage would be a great benefit.
