"We are on cloud 9, we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us not just yesterday but everything on the lead up to our stay, you were just amazing!! Our experience of everything at the hotel was just excellent. Thank you again for everything.”
Jennifer & Fraser


"We were married at Macdonald Aviemore resort in October this year having postponed our original date from July. We could not have been happier with our day and the setting, with the beautiful autumnal colours, was even more perfect than a summer wedding! We used various accommodation across the resort and all got top marks. We used the onsite chapel that we decorated with the help of the special events executive and had an intimate reception in the Skye room. Both the chapel and function room were perfect for the day we wanted and atmospheric for a small gathering. The meal following our wedding was incredible and the staff on duty were fantastic. All of the staff at the resort on all of our stays have been helpful, friendly and extremely professional. From the very start of the planning for our day the special events executive was fantastic, she led us through everything taking the time to answer all of our questions and dealt with the multiple changes we needed to make in order to comply with the ever-changing covid restrictions with kindness and understanding. Our day was incredible from start to finish and we did not want it to end. We cannot thank you enough for making our day so perfect."
Michelle & Alasdair (bride & groom)


"I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the amazing service you gave us for our wedding. Everything was perfect and we all had a wonderful day. The lodge was fabulous and the table and meal were lovely. Everyone commented how nice the meal was and the service was excellent. Once again thank you so much you are both an absolute credit to your hotel and your profession."
Clare (bride)
