“good, clean rooms for cheap during the Braemar Gathering”
Reviewed 17 September 2008

Was able to book two rooms for one night only (most places in Ballater wanted a two night min) back in March for the weekend of the Braemar Gathering in September. Stayed in the "cabins" which is a seperate building from the hotel, noise wasn't an issue, rooms were clean and decently sized. Private bathroom for the room was larger than expected including a full tub and nice large towels. There was a radiator in the bathroom and one in the room which was a nice touch as it was cold in the morning. Breakfast is served in the dining room, a wide selection of cooked foods was available. Internet access was not available but we were only there for one night so it wasn't a big deal.
Overall a good place I would stay at again if in the area.

We have recently returned from an enjoyable stay in theGlen Lui.It isin a beautiful setting with comfortable well equipped accommodation.Good food is served in a dining room from where there is a wonderful view .Family owned & run there is a warm,friendly atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble.With lots to see & do in the area this makes a very good base.
