“Perfect location with the best home cooked breakfast in ballater”
Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

Our two night stay was a return visit and it was again a really great choice. The room was lovely service excellent and breakfast to die for. Owner and chef Lea provides an amazing selection for breakfast and everything is delicious. I will need to return again for more homemade muesli and delicious homemade muffins. (How I managed to eat this after a full cooked breakfast I do not know) everything was served by a bright and breezy Peter who is very knowledgable about the area. All in all first class stay.

Very friendly, really accommodating and a great breakfast. Easy walk into the village centre. Only a single nights stay, but would happily return. We were able to get into our room quite early for changing without much notice, our hosts were very helpfull.

I can't really fault this B & B - we only stayed one night, but it was perfect for what we needed. The owners couldn't have done more to make us welcome and the room was a good size and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent too, with everyone home made from the muesli and muffins to the jam.

A very beautiful B&B, as well from the outside as from the inside. We had a very big room at the front side of the house, comfortable and cozy. Lea is the perfect hostess and a great cook. The breakfast is unbelievable. Everything is homemade and they have a special menu which you can choose from (scrambled eggs, pooched eggs, smoked salmon etc) . Pieter is serving the breakfast in a very special way. He makes people smile. We had great fun.
The environment, including the wild life is impressive. The village is nice with all kind of different shops and restaurants.
Thank you very much for your hospitality, dear Lea&Pieter! You made Scotland very special for us! Big kisses form Holland! Richard and Helga.

Our 2-night stay would have been a great experience if the host had not behaved like a hyperkinetic Duracell rabbit. Nice rooms, ok bathroom, great breakfast. None of the guests understood why, at 9:40am, he started yelling that "10 o'clock is check-out time" and "people are always waiting until the last minute to leave". Completely uncalled for and extremely rude.

We were looking for a B&B in Ballater and chose Moorside House on the basis of previous reviews we had read on trip advisor which made reference to excellent breakfasts. They did not disappoint! Could not have asked for a better start to the day! There was a huge choice of different breakfasts on offer from the menu (how many B&Bs have such a full breakfast menu?!), I can wholly recommend the smoked salmon and the pancakes which come topped with fresh yoghurt, maple syrup and berries. Cereals, toast, tea and fruit were in abundance and the owners were very friendly and gave us excellent advice on good walks and places to visit. They also provide a menu from each of the local restaurants, so you can start thinking about your dinner choices before you go out. We ate at the Pizzeria one night. We were disappointed there didn't seem to be a great choice of pubs in Ballater, but had a nice lunch (if expensive) at the Snails cafe. Ballater is an excellent base for walking. We did a lovely circuit walk of the River Dee around Ballater (2 hours) and then went up the more challenging Lochnagar where the views were fantastic. Loch Muick was also a lovely spot which was well worth a look.

Moorside was definitely an excellent choice of B&B. Rooms were spacious and quiet and we had everything we needed. If we are ever in Ballater I would definitely stay here again. The service was absolutely excellent.
