Inverness and the Scottish Highlands

... Urquhart Castle, some other nice viewing areas like the Three sisters and the ruins of Inverlochy castle. Our final stop before the end of the tour was Luss.

Most of the people from the tour departed back in Glasgow, but the driver was heading back to Edinburgh that night so a me and a few others got a free ride to Edinburgh which was quite ...

So I was having a nice wee morning enjoying the thought that all my Ballumbie colleagues (and other Dundee and Angus pals) are back at work so I relished the opportunity to watch 'Heir Hunters' then a bit of 'Homes Under the Hammer' on a 'school day'. Then came the news from the travel agent through whom I've booked mg flights that I had to call them to discuss a 'major schedule ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Coylumbridge - Aviemore

    More 3 star than 4 star


    Just back from a weekend break here during which time I would say the star rating is 'optimistic'. The room we had was ok and pretty basic. The usual TV, telephone, hairdryer and tea/coffee tray. The bathroom was a bit disappointing in so much as a bit of mold and cracked basin/tiles etc. I think the rooms generally need refurbishment. The food was quite nice, especially the breakfasts, and the staff very friendly (one even refused a tip !!). Lots of kids though....didn't reckon on half term holidays starting this weekend!

    I would go back again but choose my dates very carefully to avoid too many youngsters. Great place if you bring the 2.4 kids with you.

    Not what you'd expect from Hilton!!


    For 116 per night DBB, this hotel falls well short of the Hilton standard. The rooms are pritty dated and in dire need of renovation. The hotel foyer is nice enough as is the restaurants but again I would say the meals were not up to the 4 star quality I would expect from Hilton. It was acceptable enough to stay for one night as it is clean, but I certainly wouldn't be rushing back.

    If you don't have kids with you...Be Prepared for Theirs!


    The 1st tip-off should have been that this hotel is considered part of the Hilton's Leisure Hotels. Now in the U.S. we don't have precisely that, so I mistook 'leisure' to mean great spa facilities, pool, exercise, etc. We fortunately did not pay for our stay (exactly); we traded our Valuable Hawaii Hilton Grand Vacation Club timeshare points to include a 'wonderful' visit to the Highlands while on a longer tour of Scotland & Ireland.

    Family Holiday


    We enjoyed our holiday to this hotel very much. Our little boy of 8 had a great time with the various organised activities and pool. The staff were both polite and helpful in all areas of the hotel. Contrary to previous reports our room was spotless and this high standard was maintained daily. The food was first class in both quantity and quality. All drinks were expensive especially the wine and champagne.

    Overall we had a great time and will return

    Breakfasts to die for


    Had a most relaxing, enjoyable 4 day weekend break at the Coylumbridge Hilton. Food was delicious and all the staff were friendly and helpful. We were 3 adults and had initially been concerned because we knew it was a popular hotel for families. But it was so well laid out and the children well organised that the many children who were there did not spoil our weekend at all! Not a place for those who like it very quiet. But excellent if you like good service, good food and a frendly sociable bustle. The evening bands were good too.

    Misleading info on lodges


    Having stayed in many various lodges with many various prices we thought we would try the Hilton Coylumbridge for that extra touch of luxury. The emphasis on luxury comes into the price which by past standards was not cheap. My family of myself my husband and our 3 children set off for what we thought would be the holiday with that touch of luxury. To our disappointment the lodge we had booked was very dated, very un luxurious and very overpriced. Having said that , i did complain about the standard and was promptly upgraded by a very nice lodge manager to a more superior lodge, which however still not live up to the standard we had experienced in other locations for less cost. The hotel could not be faulted in its entertainment package for the kids which was superb as were the staff. Overall we did have a great holiday which was very much geared towards my older children, them being 8 and 11, the youngest of my kids being 3 was left to mum and dad to be amused by, but there was a great pool and play area so no boredom there. Overall a great holiday base despite the poor accommodation!

    Total Disappointment


    We travelled from London for a three night stay at this hotel at the end of May this year, our booking was for dinner bed and breakfast in a family room. The hotel purports to be a four star hotel, to be honest I have stayed in much better three star hotels, we found the whole experience to be a real disappointment and well below standards expected of Hilton.

    Kids loved it !!!!!!!!


    We have just came back from a long weekend in Hilton's Coylumbrige hotel. Our kids had a ball and we had avery relaxing time. There was always something for the kids to do, with Supervised help, while we just sat and relaxed in the bar. It is not the type of hotel I would recommend going to without children. There were a mass of children playing all day and night throughout the hotel. Staff were friendly and courteous. Aviemore is a bit of a let down just now because the centre has been flattened to make way for a new development. It will be excellent in a couple of years time. We also had a day at Landmark - a type of highland theme park about 10mins from the hotel, again the kids thought it was great! All in all we had a good time and would go back.

    Most disappointing


    We booked a family room for 5 nights in August 2002 expecting the usual Hilton standard. But found this hotel to be very worn and dated well below our expectations. Having booked partly because of the sports facilities we were annoyed to find that the sports hall advertised as having table tennis etc could not be used when it rained because the roof leaked. The food was of a very poor standard. Needless to say we left after one night.

    Weekend retreat


    This hotel was first class for our weekend break. We travelled up from Aberdeen, which takes about 2 hours, with our 2 year old daughter and friends who also have a 2 year old. The rooms were large enough and had 2 double beds. The food in the restaurant was varied (we opted for the set meal which was included in our rate) and really good and the children were well catered for with their own separate tea-time. At night the live acts were great and children were all also included in the entertainment. Drinks are not that cheap, so take plenty of cash. The fun house was great for kids of all ages and there are plent of snack foods as well. There are two pools with loungers surrounding the area.Nearby Aviemore has more cafes, restaurants, bars etc and a supermarket if you need anything.
