Stayed for 2 nights in a suite which had everything you would need for a short stay. We had an excellent time. Couldn’t fault anything with this resort/hotel. Situated among beautiful scenery on Royal Deeside. Would highly recommend. Short but beautiful walk into Ballater.

We had just one night here - booked a studio but we were upgraded to a suite. It was nice to have extra space, though out doors did open out onto the communal bins! We had booked a slot in the pool, which was all very efficiently managed, Everywhere was clean - no covid worries at all. We enjoyed a cocktail or two in the outdoor seating area, and the bar staff had no problems with us requesting glasses of tap water also, and to take up to our room at night. All the staff we encountered were very pleasant. The resort did have a slightly dated air to it - I had last been when it newly opened over 30 years ago so this was not really surprising.

Excellent resort with attention paid to every detail. Suitable for people who like walking, fishing or golf only. We love walking and there is an abundance of nearby routes to suit all levels of difficulty. The spa had an excellent pool with room for a decent swim. Restaurant was ok but drinks prices were high! Apartment was rather warm and due to being on the third floor there were restraints on how far you could open the windows.

We visited the suites within this hotel again, for the first time in 2021 and the staff continue to provide a welcoming, clean, hygienic environment in which to have a relaxing stay with a range of amenities should you require them. We tend to use the accommodation as our centre from which to undertake various walks in the local magnificent scenery.

We had a comfortable stay with very attentive staff. Weather wasn’t the best during our stay but didn’t stop us exploring the surrounding areas around the hotel. Would highly recommend to anyone considering a stay with the Hilton.
