Property condition

4/5 Good

Spacious and relaxing

Accommodation was spacious, beds were comfortable, and kitchen is fully equipped. There are no family change rooms for the pool so I was told to come back with my wife so my daughters could go swimming. Buffet was not good for the price. Other than that beautiful setting.

Love the setting, looking out onto golf course, trees with red squirrels etc However chalet was a little tired, electricity is not included in your room rate, The pool 2 hours a day a lifeguard is supposed to be in attendance for kids under 16 to be unaccompanied however they allowed tge Kids in but no lifeguard around, we brought this to the hotel receptions attention and they said they would resolve for future, we were at gym and kids old enough and strong enough a swimmer that it wasnt an issue for us, low and behold next day no lifeguard again, clearly rules are all talk and no care, Would definitely go back though as we love Aviemore and love the Dalfaber setting, Would say though as good as the resort could be it is definitely needing a little care and attention to bring it back to its potential but this seems to be the the case accross the MacDonald portfolio

5/5 Excellent

home away from home in a beautiful location

Our villa was perfect for our family of 5. The villa had two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa upstairs. The stairs were very creaky but overall the villa condition was good. The sun porch with view of the golf course valley with bunnies hopping around was a joy to watch. Having a villa gave us a sense of being at home during our stay.

Great room for family. Beautiful hotel, beautiful area. Good service at reception. We love sitting inside the sun room feeling so warm when outside was windy.
