We have just returned from our 2nd stay at Westhaven & must concur with all the previous reviews. The rooms are immaculately prepared upon arrival, with lovely clean, fresh smelling bedlinen & towels, a spotless bathroom & a very warm welcome by the owners, Sandy & Val.
Sandy & Val made us feel instantly at home by offering us a nice cool drink, just the job after the long drive up here.
We, again, stayed in the ground floor room, which although the bathroom is across a private corridor, has the best facilities, i.e. a proper whirlpool bath & a stand up steam shower with a built in stereo. Pure luxury!
Breakfast the following morning was sheer heaven, eggs, (any style you like), bacon, lorne sausage, black pudding, tomatoes plus cereals, toast, fruit, tea, coffee, all superbly cooked by Val. Bliss!
Following on from breakfast, a trip to the river spey ensued, & after a brief recap on the casting techniques by Sandy, we hit the river. Salmon fishing is notoriouly hard & we failed to catch one but we were able to catch a fine specimen of a sea trout. This was kindly smoked by Sandy, frozen & then we took it home with us.
Sandy & Val were excellent host's, interacting between all their guest's, offering them help & guidance on days out, amusing their children & above all, seeming to enjoy doing this.
Westhaven do not do evening meals but Grantown has a varied selection of resturants & takeaways on hand, & the Claymore bar allows customers to bring takeaways into the bar for consumption.
All in all, Sandy & Val offer excellent facilities, a wealth of local knowledge &, above all, a very warm & hospitable welcome. Thank you.
