The hotel complex is located at a ski resort in the Cairngorms. Our room was small but pleasantly appointed. The breakfast buffet offered a limited number of choices considering how big it was. The WiFi was spotty. There are a couple of restaurants located on site, but the service was slow, especially in the steakhouse, and the menu overpriced. The...

Dear 'wannahike' Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on TripAdvisor.

Although the hotel rooms were a typical MacDonald room the complex is very big with 3/4 hotels in all. Great facilities for families but not for those wanting a quiet get away. The breakfast was in one large room serving all of the hotels in the complex. There were 3 restaurants to choose from and the one we went to...

I would have rated the hotel a 3 star for an overnight stay. The only reason the rating isn't lower is that I don't feel we stayed long enough to develop a full opinion - it is also because I am being kind. One and a half of the awarded rating is for the bed. The hotel complex it's self...

As mentioned by other reviewers, we too found no one on reception. A note directed us to the conference centre. We had booked an exec king room but found ourselves in a small twin room.

Just returned from 2 night stay at the recently refurbished Morlich hotel.Normally we stay at the Highlands hotel but this wasn't available on our dates so we were offered the Morlich.

On arrival, the signs to the reception are very misleading in the resort. We drove in circles looking for the correct reception area, when we finally located our hotel, we found that there were no staff on the check-in desk & a sign asking us to dial 0 for assistance. We did so and could hear the phone ringing but...

Recently stayed at the Morlich as part of a business convention. The hotel is nice and certainly the dramatic mountain backdrop sets the scene as you first arrive. The hotel itself has recently undergone a major refurb according to the staff, and on the whole the room itself was good. Liked the modern feel and subtle embracing of the rich...

My partner and I were looking forward to a well deserved break away. We had booked an Executive King in the refurbished Morlich Hotel.
