We used our HGVC points for this trip, and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the suite, the pool area and the general environment. Our one bedroom suite had a fireplace and both the living room and bedroom each had a small deck. You can make tea or coffee in the room but it is not equipped for more...

Stayed for three days in one of the gorgeous suites. Aileen and her team were fantastically welcoming, even printing out walking maps and checking ski lift status to help us with our day. Suite was a joy, sumptuous and luxurious. The food was so good in Kelliers restaurant that we ate there every night. Beautifully presented and great ingredients. thoroughly...

We visited this hotel after being offered a special deal through HH, it was a very good deal and we are glad that we visited. The surrounding areas are fantastic, we visited the local distillery and had a great time, we also went on a Land Rover tour with a local expert - this also involved some walking in the...

We have been to this area a few times so we do know it fairly well, we stayed at the Hotel a couple of years back - that was great !! now to the lodges, I would say they could do with bringing into the 21st century (to much pine for me) but on the whole they are clean and...

Having not been since childhood, I was relatively excited to be invited for two nights in a large timeshare lodge at Craigendarroch. The lodge itself was in serious need of renovation, the kitchen and all the cabinetry in the accommodation was dated, worn and tatty. The family who invited us have had this lodge for more than 30 years admitted...

As a HH member I was sent an offer for a two/three night stay at a great rate, the catch (if you can call it that) is that you had to attend a short sales promotion during the stay. I was a little apprehensive as we had never been induced into this type of holiday by way of a sales...

I recently stayed here in a lodge with my girlfriend and our two young children. The bathrooms in the lodge have both been recently refurbished and are modern. Possibly the rest of the lodge could go with a little modernisation but never the less it was still lovely. The food in the bar and restaurant was lovely and extremely good...

Very nice visit here, we stayed in a suite initially on a promotional tour, the tour encouraged us to invest into the HGVC programme. Don't be put off by going along for the promotional tour as it isn't pressurised selling!! You can simply walk away no problem at all. Staff all very friendly. The restaurant is not big so certainly...
