“Another excellent visit to Westhaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2011

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.

Would highly recomend this B&B to anyone travelling to Grantown on Spey. The room was well equipped and comfortable, with tasteful decor and nice touches e.g. his and hers robes. The private bathroom was astonishing... a huge room, massive, with a corner jacuzzi bath, twin shower cabinet with all the mod-cons (radio, steam facility, foot massager) - brilliant!

The building itself was modern, clean and had plenty of information for tourists about the local area. It was a little hard to see the sign, it sits back from the road, with access between two other buildings.

Val (the owner) was lovely. She knows the trade inside out and makes all her guests feel very welcome and at home. She cooks a mean breakfast too, with plenty of options and flexibility for requests.

Just to add to the positive reviews. We stayed for the weekend in a triple room, which was spacious and had a very nice en suite shower room. Room was clean, tidy and all you need for a weekend away. Made to feel very welcome and arranging an early breakfast for one of the mornings was no trouble.
Location is excellent for exploring the beautiful surrounding area.

Both my husband, I and 2 Children aged 10 and 11 thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were all made very welcome throughout our stay. Accommodation was spotless throughout and very comfortable. We have stayed in many B&B's in the past, but this is by far the best. We will definately be returning sometime in the future.

Great location, central to the Cairngorms National Park. A lovely, warm, clean B&B to come back to after our days out. Friendly hosts who were knowledgable about the area. Very tasty breakfasts in the mornings too. Westhaven helped to make our holiday to the Cairngorms truly enjoyable.

Arrived late afternoon after driving from Killin. Val met us and provided us with a really warm welcome, and we felt immediately at home. Showed us to our room which was immaculate. Quiet with lovely view of trees in the garden and hills in the distance from the skylight windows. Breakfast was full and sumptious, and recommend a start to at least one day, with porridge and a "wee dram". Snowed on our first night, which was very special for us, coming from Australia. Val arranged a dinner booking for us at the Garth Hotel. Her recommendation was excellent, great service and great food. Wish we could have stayed for longer than our three nights. Thanks Val for a wonderful stay.
