We arrived in Braemar with nowhere to stay and this was the only place with any vacancies. We had the deluxe room as that was all that was left and the room was beautiful, comfortable and clean. I found the staff weren't particularly friendly or helpful with the exception of the barman. We got down for breakfast ten minutes late...

One night stay at this hotel. Hotel apears tired, needs refreshing. Our room was clean and basic, but bathroom needed a refurb. We ate in the dining service was good but the food very basic, would recommend eating in bar or else where! Over all a very cheap night but you get what you pay for.Staff very helpful

Rooms spacious and spotlessly clean. Friends had front room which was more spacious and looked to the front of the hotel. Service was excellent in the dining room and Reception. Food was well presented and plentiful. Altogether a great few days away at a very reasonable price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The impressive baronial style of The Invercauld Arms is set against the stunning backdrop of the Grampian Mountains. The Castle view Restaurant with its impressive windows and wood paneling adds to the character of the hotel and makes for an informal dining experience with us. The Rebel Lounge comes alive most evenings with our talented entertainers offering a relaxed style of entertainment for you to enjoy. In the winter months there is a traditional coal and log fire burning in the front lounge providing a warm welcome for weary travelers. The intimate atmosphere of our Slante Bar provides a very cosy and relaxed setting for unwinding at the end of the day. The Invercauld Arms is ideal for those looking to partake in outdoor activities, explore the Highlands or just relax and enjoy the unrivaled world famous Scottish hospitality. ... more   less
