The UK’s largest independent hotel group, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts, has renewed a long-term agreement with RCI, having been affiliated to the world’s leading holiday exchange services provider for more than 20 years.
Macdonald Hotels & Resorts currently has 10 resorts signed up to the RCI holiday exchange programme – four in Spain, four in Scotland, one in Wales and one in England. Each resort has earned an RCI quality award, with eight having been awarded RCI Gold Crown status, and two receiving RCI Silver Crown status. The resorts offer leisurely breaks, with excellent facilities, and all against a backdrop of the most magnificent landscape.
The popularity of Macdonald resorts with RCI members is attributed, in part, to their fantastic locations, together with their standout features, of which Macdonald Spey Valley & Golf Country Club in Aviemore, Scotland, is a prime example. The Scandinavian-style apartments are set in acres of mature woodland on the banks of the River Spey and the golf course was recently voted the most picturesque in the UK at the 2015 Scottish Golf Tourism Awards. There is also an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool for visitors to relax in.
Elmers Court Country Club is another delightful Macdonald resort. The Tudor-style manor house is surrounded by 23 acres of immaculate lawns and gardens. Once inside you’ll find an indoor pool, whirlpool, and sauna, plus treatment facilities, including massages – for the ultimate indulgence.
Simon Jackson, CEO of Macdonald Resorts Ltd said: “The long-standing relationship we have with RCI continues to deliver year after year, due to the flexibility it offers to thousands of our owners.
“Through RCI, our owners are able to maximise diversity in their holiday planning, while we are able to offer them flexibility, combined with the consistent quality and high standards our owners expect of our holidays, and which they have come to rely on.”
Dimitris Manikis, vice president of Business Development, RCI Europe/Middle East/Africa, said: “Quality sets the timeshare accommodation and experience apart from other self-catering holiday types. Macdonald Hotels & Resorts can be relied upon to ensure that its resorts, guest facilities and service levels are of a consistently high standard. I’m sure that RCI members will continue to enjoy their stays at these popular Macdonald resorts.”
