    The facilities including the swimming pool were a welcome break after a long day taking in the sights. Most of the staff were extremely helpful and willing to maximise our stay in any way possible

    Superb

    The location was perfect for what we wished to do. Our room was very comfortable and the reastaurants/bar provided adequate variety of food. Swimming pool was very good as was the Gym.

    The room was very warm. Windows could be opened although a little stiff. A ceiling fan would be welcome.

    Thanks to Booked.net we got a great price for Halfboard accomodation. We enjoyed relaxing in the pool and jaccuzi

    Fabulous

    Staff were very friendly and helpful, food was good.

    Information on hotel services was limited, meaning we kept having to ask reception whenever we wanted to use a facility. For example the literature in the room only referred to Hilton in general, and signage was limited, so we couldn't find the restaurant and spa, which are in a separate building.

    Locality to beautiful surrounding area.

    Many trees outside balcony (room 40) totally spoil views of surrouding hills. Hotel room was not adequately tidied (table was covered in dust). No fridge in room. Service at meal was sporadic, with the courses rushed throughout. Steak overdone. Restaraunt right next to swimming pool with smell of chlorine and right next to area where activities were taking place, with lots of background noises. Couldn't eat in main restaraunt due to dress code being applied, which I thought odd considering this is only a 4 star hotel, not really Gleneagles. Oustide, the hotel grouds are in desperate need of attention. Weeds all over the place, gardens not kept tidy. Could be so much more if a little more attention to detail spent on it.

    This is the perfect place from which to explore Deeside. Room was spacious and comfortable enough.

    the sauces in the restaurant tended to overwhelm dishes and the shower was less than poweful

    Superb

    The food. The menu was extremely good even in the Club House Restaurant, which was not the a la carte restaurant. Good hearty food with an exotic twist. The location is also very good.Great views of the hills and surroundings even during bad weather. Great gym as well.

    The hotel is on multiple levels and getting to bedrooms on the upper floors from reception requires the use of two elevators and quite a walk. Not easy with heavy luggage.

    Lovely location and good breakfast.

    Very disappointed with the room, small and pokey with an uncomfortable bed. Hotel is a bit dated now and pretty shabby. The swimming pool is also very tatty with broken tiles everywhere. The food in the restaurant was mediocre at best, not what you would expect in a 4 star hotel !!

    Excellent location.Really nice dinner and breakfast and good comfortable room.Easy car parking.

    The Hotel was very reluctant to give us a table for dinner until after 9 pm.They said they were very busy.After a bit of a battle finally got a table for 6 pm and enjoyed an excellent dinner in a half full restaraunt,dont know why.
