Stay was ok but there was a smashed picture in the room when we arrived.Entertainment stopped at 8pm which was very disappointing as well, service through the hotel was poorer standard to previous years as well.

Reception had us book as B&B not half board but this was sorted quickly (not sure if this was the hotels fault or Hotel. com). Room was clean, comfortable and modern. Only issue was dinner was served in another hotel in the resort. Just as well it was not raining. Dinner was excellent, breakfast was good. Issue with staff, although friendly and helpful, trying to understand some was difficult. Too many foreign staff and not enough Scottish - Why.? Good hotel and handy for visiting the area. More...

Nice hotel. Stayed many times. Always appears quiet and off season. Maybe I'm lucky. I think the most confusing thing is there's about 4-5 residences ran by MacDonald's in aviemore and think they need much more distinct names, Alpha, Delta etc. Or even pair the resistances with the food on site, so burger, pizza, restaurant, steakhouse etc. More...

In general hotel is well equipped. Decor is getting a bit dated and service seems slow. Breakfast time is a challenge and more could be done to improve layout.

2 grandsons aged 9 and 6 had wonderful time on inflatables /soft play and in the pool. Because they were so happy with that we grandparents were able to relax read and just think about where we would go to eat. Breakfast buffet delicious Carvery and Italian were fine though all would have benefited from warm plates.Lunch suffered from poor service in Laggan Bar though food was good .Chicken fillet take away seemed out of place.

Expedia DBB offer has a bug - the hotel is not properly informed of the rate and it is hassle when you arrive to explain that you have paid in full. The hotel is packed with activities for kids but a bit tired - management need to do a walk through so they can truly experience from a customers point of view and put things right (e.g badly lit stair well, breakfast room, porridge very salty, lack of healthy kids meal options...)

The location of this hotel is excellent for Aviemore and local attractions. Helpful to have onsite restaurants and activity centre. That’s why we chose the hotel. For the price I think the buildings are run down and the rooms are fine but nothing exceptional. The pool is quite cool and the jacuzzi wasn’t working. The kid’s room was fab. Expect more for 4* but facilities make it worthwhile if you get a good deal. More...

There are plenty of activities to do in or around the hotel for young kids and adults too. The on-site restaurants (we tried Aspects and the Italian) were really tasty and reasonable, although drinks were a little expensive (hotel prices). The activity centre and play park on-site were really useful and very well maintained. The Highland Safari Park is a must for a young family. More...

Would expect a little bit more from a 4 star establishment. My room was on the ground floor making privacy scarce. Dark and quiet so I slept well.

This is THE place to stay in Bath. First class service, great rooms and the best parking. The hotel property is gorgeous. You could never leave the hotel grounds and have a perfect day . Outstanding bar for an afternoon Gin & Tonic or a nightcap. More...

Most excellent stay at Macdonald Bath Spa. Friendly and attentive service, 5 star rooms, comfy beds, gorgeous hotel grounds, convenient parking, central to all of Bath and a lovely bar for a nightcap. A perfect anniversary weekend.

We had stayed at the hotel previously, so knew what to expect. Resort concept still hasn’t got it rights. No-one in ‘entertainment’ bar when we returned from dinner at 9.30pm.Investment

Lots to do and will definitely be back again. All staff friendly and welcoming and great choice of food and activities for all. Just a shame we didnt arrive till late due to a long road diversion on the way down from North. Wish we had booked another night. Great service all round, thanks Expedia and Mcdonald Resort. More...

This would of been 5 stars had the family room we were given been clean. We were moved rooms but it disrupted the kids initially after a long drive. They did rectify the problem but make sure your rooms are clean before you allow guests in. Not a cheap stay but apart from that it was fab and good facilities. More...

There are nice spaces to sit and the staff are friendly and helpful. There’s several nice little touches (4 bottles of water in room fridge, fluffy gowns in room. The star is docked for the distinctly unimpressive catering. The evening meal was good service but was a little tasteless - didn’t taste fresh, and was very uninspiring in general. I would recommend not eating in the restaurant here, but instead visiting the nearby (15 min) bath city centre restaurants. More...

Great facilities for children. Our son was unwell overnight and the staff went above and beyond, waiting with us for an ambulance, leaving us chocolates and checking in with us later on. We would definitely return.

The staff were great, the breakfast was particularly good and the evening meal was very nice. We liked the option of using the half board package at the Steak House at the other McDonald resort in Aviemore Rooms were cleaned everyday Didnt get to use other facillities as we were out a lot. The shops were expensive.

Room was clean and bed comfortable. Bathroom would benefit from having some hooks on wall/ door. When arrived, no-one was at reception and no phone was available to call for a member of staff. Not great first impression!

The room was really cold, old electric heaters so took ages to heat up the room and it didn’t really heat the room at all. Not an issue in summer but this time of year the room was very cold. Apart from that, brilliant time! More...
