Enjoyed a few days here at Easter. Restaurant was excellent. B & B very good and staff cheerful and helpful. Room 4 is adequate for a couple but bathroom is very small. Did not see other bedrooms in main building but chalets looked good and spacious.

We stayed here for 1 night in April 2017. We had planned to stay in a nearby hotel only to find out that it was a B&B and was not suitable for us. We arrived at the Glen Lui and it was sunny, there is a lovely outside decking area with tables and chairs, parasols and its south facing. We...

We stayed at this hotel while on a mountain biking trip. It had evrything we needed and both staff and owners were very friendly and helpful. The only problem was the slightly insecure storage for bikes but Ballater probably doesn't have a very high crime rate. All in all the Glen Lui offers good value and I would have no...

We were in a superior room at the front of the hotel. It was a good sized room with ensuite bath and shower. All very clean. The towels were changed every day and the room made up very promptly. The staff are very friendly and we didn't feel "awkward" at any time. The hotel has a large terraced area out...

Nice hotel but do not stay in the "Pine Terrace " rooms. We were put in one but moved to the main hotel which is 100% better. Nicely decorated rooms with lovely views. Showers in the basic rooms are very average. Two of the rooms have roll top baths and are Seriously better than the others. Breakfast is fine. We...

Stayed at the Glen Lui Hotel as part of a Roe deer hunt at Balmoral Castle with internationaladventures.us in June 2014. My cousin and his wife stayed there in June 2016 on my recommendation based upon our stay and hunt. This is a quaint little hotel just down the street from where the Queen's service guard stays when she is...

The Glen Lui is one of our favourite places to stay, the rooms are beautiful and some have been refurbished within the last two years , the bathroom in room 3 is very spacious and the bath perfect for a long soak after a days walking. The breakfasts are tasty and there is a good choice of cooked breakfasts, the...
