Reviewed yesterday NEW

The effortless charm of the hosts, Val and Dave Stewart, was matched by the beauty and comfort and spotlessness of the rooms, fine linens and ridiculously comfortable beds. However it was the warmth of the welcome, the bright burning fires in the breakfast room, and the immense, gorgeous breakfast fare and simply stunning dinner time food that transformed this into...

Warm welcome from Colin before we met owners Dave & Val. Room was excellent with plenty room for us. Only slight detraction was no armchair in the room, but large lounge available equipped with TV etc. Bathroom in our room was brilliant with copious quantities of very hot water instantly available. Could have stayed in the shower all day!!. Room...

We stayed two nights at this cozy B&B. The friendly host and serene environment makes us an enjoyable stay. Not to mention the relatively convience location for visiting all Speyside distillery. As a summary to our stay, highly recommended!!

We adored this B&B! The home is stunning with large rooms and elegant decor. The living area with open fire provided an area to relax and unwind. Very romantic for couples and those touring through the area. The hosts were very welcoming and open to help/provide recommendations. The breakfast was fresh and very tasty. We will definitely come back.

Dave's warm welcome set the tone for two terrific days here. A stylish and comfy country house, beautifully done & spotlessly clean we appreciated the extra generous touches which made this a special place to stay. Val's culinary delights wowed us! Thank you!

I hesitate to write this review if only because I am afraid that this little gem in Speyside will be booked solid when we try to return - and we WILL be back someday! House is beautiful and perfectly restored, our room (the Glenlivet) was enormous and gorgeous. We slept like bears in a cave with those wooden shutters...almost missed...

Nestled away in the heart of the whisky trail, is this beautiful home with several ample rooms for the weary traveler. The home is modern yet impressively period with furniture and architecture.

Beautiful B&B and great hosts. Warm welcome in person and by fire. Dave even joined in and shared a dram of whisky. Great rooms, beds, shower, location (although a bit off the beaten track, just adds to the uniqueness). Breakfast was perfect. All in all.... would make a detour just to stay there!

Food was excellent room was beautiful, Dave and Val look after all the guests superbly. Val is an exceptional cook. No bar but you can take your own wine to each meal so this is not a problem. Dave will put it in the ice and Cork for you. After meals settle down in a lounge with open fire... Perfect.
