No way 4 star!

Good location in centre of Aviemore - possibly only good point. No way is this a 4 star hotel. Staff completely disinterested. Couldn't access swimming pool as it was full. Couldn't book a restaurant for dinner on our half board rate as they were full. Had to have the buffet instead - which was predominatly cold with a terrible choice of food. Quality of breakfast was terrible with a hair as an added extra.
