A major disappointment after visiting Muckrach and using excellent dining room many years ago as a family on multiple visits to Grantown on Spey. Speyside itself did not disappoint, still beautiful with Grantown the perfect Highland town.
Hotel location, privacy, solitude still wonderful. Room and accommodation OK although shower plumbing not sealed through tile, tiny TV and overall needed upgrading, bar OK, several armchairs covered in Tartan Rugs, to hide splits in the uphostery.
Biggest disappointment, dinner on first night, overcooked pork, with butter/herb which had melted so now veggies etc saturated with butter, ridiculous high price even with cheap wine. Needless to say we ate elsewhere the following evening (Garth Hotel, very good)
Breakfast Good. Staff, particularly an Australian lady very good and welcoming.
Never saw the owners although we spent time in Bar area, and Dining.
A bit disappointing having remembered the Muckrach as a small but wonderful experience.
