      Individual guest reviews

      • Group of friends
        5.8

        Breakfast was very good indeed, with plenty to choose from.

        I did not like the location of our room or the outlook. Unfortunately we were overlooking the backyard and dustbins and there was a generator under our window which was very noisy all night.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        The views from a resonable sized bedroom & a very comfortable bed

        The check-in was very slow mainly due to people checking into the Lodges and there was little space to accommodate people. The hotel is looking tired and shows signs of lack of investment. Bedrooms not easy to get to and key did not work - had to return to reception to be told that only put the key in 3/4 and this should work- it did! Bathroom very small.Food did not live up to expectations and the smell of chlorine while eating was not conducive to a pleasant meal nor was sitting on banqueting seats at an unbalanced table

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Very Comfortable - easy dining at fair price - good food

        Waiters in Restaurants tended to rush around a bit

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        The food was of a very high quality and the staff very much in control

        The Spa was very busy and past its sell-by date. The staff were not interested.

      • Group of friends
        5.0

        We did not use the spa nor the swimming pool but if we had had the time, this would probably have been nice. The surrounding was fantastic.

        The location was a bit away from the village center. The beds was too hard. Totally impression is: Not value for the money.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Price and the fact that we had friends in one of the lodges.

        Chair in bedroom ripped upholtery

        Location

        The standard of food was unnaceptable, especially the buffet at the lochaber suite. the breakfast could have been much better and not what I would expect of the Hilton chain! The rooms were too small and very dated and not at all up to the standard I would expect for a Hilton. Overall I was not impressed at all with the Hilton Craigendarroch hotel. This hotel could be so much better as the location is absolutley perfect.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Restaurant was fabulous.

        Did not like that the spa was no longer open.

      • Couple
        7.4

        Overall trip was good with a couple of niggling issues. Wifi access cost 14.99 for 24 hours- this is a massive pet hate for me- if you spend money on a decent hotel wifi should be free as standard, the hotel has it anyway, it's a ridiculous hidden cost too many hotels seem to find acceptable. Stop treating your customers with contempt. 2nd , our tv was broken, not usually an issue but the weather was poor and it would have been nice to have a cosy night with a movie. Initially all tvs were down due to weather, then just ours was broken. No urgency at all to fix this and when it was fixed the quality was so poor we couldn't watch it anyway. Again a nighle which shouldn't be an issue in a decent hotel.

      • Couple
        6.2

        Good location for walking and hiking in the Cairngorms

        The bathroom in our room was moldy, damp and smelly and fairly grim and not something you'd expect from the look of the rest of the hotel and the price. Our double room was about half the size of the really spacious twin room we had booked for our friend for the same night.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        For the purposes of our visit it was a good choice.

        The hotel is in need of upgrading, the public areas are tired, carpets are worn, paint chipped and the bathroom in 46 was ridculously small. It was odd that our daughter was placed in a large room in the old part of the house when we were placed in the rather bunker like new wing. The Club House building design is odd, it does not make use of the views, the dark glass windows in Scotland in the middle of the winter does not work at all. Staffa t breakfast were very 'stressed'. The breakfast buffet at 9.30 was depleted of a number of things on both mornings so -food resourcing needs attention.
