Thanks for your comments. We are glad that you had a nice time with us! The refurbishment of the hotel is a really big job, so we are going step by step. The first was the renewal of all the bathrooms.

We are sorry the hotel did not meet your expectations, unfortunately we have no control of the construction of the building.

Convenient, comfortable hotel near Aviemore.

Pros: It was very clean and comfortable.
Cons: The twin bed mattresses were not very comfortable, a bit stiff; didn't seem a really good quality, as the Hypnos ones supplied in Premier Inn hotels.
Location: Very quite location. Not much to do but we were only there overnight so didn't have time to explore.
This hotel afforded a clean and comfortable room, though not large, in which to stay overnight when travelling from the North West Coast to East Coast of Scotland. We would recommend this hotel to other travellers. Breakfast was more than adequate and the full breakfast was well cooked and served by pleasant staff.
