    Large comfortable bed, well cooked breakfast, location.

    Arrived in very wintery conditions and snow. The resort is spead across several site and we first went to wrong reception area in the conference centre. There was a lack of staff to help you with were to go. I finally found restaurant manager who was able to direct us to a difference bluiding where our booking had been moved. I felt most sorry for the woman and three children who must have arrived by train or bus and where pulling their cases in the snow between hotel sites.

    Situated in a good location in Aviemore. Plenty facilities although we didn't get to use much of them just staying for one night. Room was clean and comfortable.

    We checked in a few days after New Year, the actual hotel we were staying at in the resort had a sign redirecting us to another reception to check in which was exceptionally busy and a bit of a wait. At first we got sent to a dog room in the Highlands Hotel, not the Morlich as booked because apparently it said we had a dog on our booking but we don't have a dog... We then had to make our way back to the reception, after a bit of a wait in a long queue again the staff changed our room to the Morlich however it was a twin, not a double. Back to reception to resolve this... Unfortunately after all of this we did not have time to wander around the town as previously planned which was disappointing as we were only staying the one night. The bar next to the Italian restaurant was extremely understaffed for the time of the year. Breakfast was ok. There is a lovely restaurant down at the railway station where we had dinner, I highly recommend.

    Room very comfortable and slept well

    Restaurant staff need a bit more training, total mix up with drinks order and only two drinks ordered. Totally unable to sort situation out. Also no reception staff at check in and people waiting.

    Bed was comfy but only good thing to say from the entire weekend

    Very dissapointed with the MacDonald hotels standards I had a huge list of complaints the entire weekend .. Nothing was organised meals were below average quality staff werent very helpfull . Got told we couldn't use the spa until later .. even though this was 5.30pm due to it being full. On both nights we got served the wrong food .. staff forgot about desserts. No robes provided . Went to the aspect bar and paid £9 for the worst cocktails I have ever tasted.. So much so the waiter actually rejected 2 of my first requests and said he would recomend as they weren't very good .. . Not a 4 star hotel it was geared towards young families but no luxury extremely Dissapointed as this was to celebrate our engagement which I also noted on our request. From a 4 start hotel you would expect some sort of good will or hospitality to make our break extra special but it was the complete opposite .
