We arrived in time for drinks & a wonderful cheese plate in the bar. The room was very comfortable, as was the bath. Breakfast was tasty. Our hosts were warm & welcoming, very helpful. We received some good advice on nearby attractions.

Had a meal here, with friends, for our 33rd anniversary. Before booking we went for a drink in the bar the day before and were made most welcome my Martin. We were confident in booking when he explained that there would a delay in serving because all the food is cooked from fresh and not reheated. We were not disappointed...

Grant and his family are excellent hosts and he is a first class chef. They were able to adjust their menu to suit our dietary needs and went out of their way to ensure that our stay was thoroughly enjoyable. I intend to return for a leisure visit as soon as I can. Highly recommended.

We stayed one night with our grandson after a visit to Balmoral. We couldn't fault anything. The evening meal and breakfast were delicious, the room very clean and comfortable, and the family very friendly and welcoming. They are great with children and our grandson loved it. We even saw 2 red squirrels in the garden while eating breakfast!

Have just had a wonderful three day stay here. The owners were wonderful hosts and Grant was a very talented chef. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone holidaying in Braemar. Dog friendly and very welcoming. My friends and I were so delighted we will go back some time soon. Give them the chance to impress you as well.
