Non residen swimming prices for two adults £22 and two children £12 unbelievable prices. Absolute rip off. Should have investigated the prices before arrival. Couldn't say no once there as kids would have been gutted. Aviemore is slowly becoming overpriced poor accommodation and over populated tourist spot. Been coming here for ten years in a row and this is definitely...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on Trip Advisor. The price is for a day pass for the swimming pool. I am sorry if you felt this was overpriced however the prices are in line with other hotel swimming pool's entry price. Kindest regards Lindsey Randall Operations Manager

This was not our first stay and it will definitely not be the last. The facilities are absolutely fantastic, we have now dined at both restaurants on site and would highly recommend both. Great service from the hotel staff also who cannot do enough to help ☺️

Our lodge was ok but it is need of updating, a week is too long as it doesn't have much comfort. There was no washing machine or cooker but we had a large dishwasher. Why would one need this? Sofas are very uncomfortable. Restaurants in resort didnt always open in the evening so we had limited choices where to eat.

We were only there for one night but wish we could have been much longer. Fantastic resort, loads to do on site and off site. The swimming pool is excellent and carers for all ages. And a wonderful peaceful sleep.
