Dining in Aviemore

Macdonald Windsor Hotel has achieved a top 100% score in a recent Costa Coffee 'Proud to Serve' excellence audit. The AA-awarded four-red star townhouse hotel has been serving Costa Coffee and Coolers ice drinks in its informal Caley's Lounge bar area since early July.

When conducting his audit, Costa Coffee's inspector looked at the availability of the coffee making machine and the hygiene standards met by members of the team in its operation, as well as how the drinks were produced, their taste and presentation.

Commenting on his visit the Proud to Serve inspector said, "The Costa standards at Macdonald Windsor Hotel are excellent and all of the correct procedures are being followed when preparing drinks. Therefore, I do not have any suggestions for improvement at all.
