“The best Guest House you'll find”
Reviewed 6 May 2009

A group of us have just spent 3 nights in this wonderful Guest House in Kingussie. Pete and his wife, Deborah were the perfect hosts. The rooms were bright, spacious and spotlessly clean. My husband and I had the suite which was most luxurious. We had dinner there two nights and the food was delicious and incredibly good value. The Hermitage is right in the centre of the town and has a lovely garden. The guest lounge is comfortable and we all felt very much at home. There was much attention to detail and all the little extras show that Pete and Deborah really care about their guests. We would definitely recommend The Hermitage. http://www.thehermitage.clara.net/

This a Fabulous Guesthouse. From the moment you step in the door you are at home. This is our 3rd year staying with Pete & Deborah and are booked in again for next November. Breakfasts are divine.

This is a superb guesthouse! We had tried and failed to find two twin rooms in Aviemore on the bank holiday weekend, but a quick check of Tripadvisor on the blackberry threw up this place, thankfully they had 2 rooms left!

4 muddy guys, 4 muddy bikes and 2 cars were welcomed by the owners at 8pm. The chap was very helpful, allowing us to lock the bikes in his shed and handing us a 10% discount for the local bar/restaurant..... where we went promptly after a quick shower for a well deserved steak and chips.

The rooms, the massive breakfast, the owners and the facilities were all top notch. I'd happily recommend the Hermitage to anyone and would certainly stay again.

Booked last minute and were fortunate that a room was available for the 2 days we wanted. Peter and his wife were very welcoming and were very helpful with possible meal options and discounts at local attractions. A really nice touch was offering a flask of tea/coffee for us to use during the day and a couple of scones at breakfast that we could take to have a snack out.
The room we had was on the ground floor, king size bed in a very tastefully decorated room. Very clean and with enough storage. Being a large room in did need the heating on all the time. Some might find it a little chilly.
Breakfast was of a high standard - fresh friut, cereal, cooked breakfast , toast, juices and the aforementioned scone.
Really enjoyed our stay and good value for money

Really very nice B&B. We booked a larger room which was lovely, really comfortable bed, proper high quality cotton bedlinen and lovely clean bathroom (with great shower). Nice touches like products (decent quality brands, not half empty and not out of date) left for guests to use in bathroom. The owners obvisouly care a great deal about service and this is really evident in the cleanliness of the rooms (spotless and comfortable) and the breakfast the next morning - nice quality cooked breakfast, good proper butcher sausages and bacon and nice touches like homemade scones (which Peter was happy to wrap up for us to take away). I am not a fan of B&Bs in general -always finding them a wee bit grotty and forced, but this one was really great and will stay again.

What a great little guest house. This is our second time at the Hermitage and it has been great both times. The owners are so accomodating - we were travelling with a baby the first year and then a toddler the 2nd. They were able to book us into the family room which was great, and accomodate us with an early meal so that our daughter could join us. Because it is small it is possible to put a baby in your room with a baby monitor to enjoy dinner ( we did this last year ). Food is lovely, home cooked and plentiful and if you let them know in advance they can avoid certain things for you. You can also get a bottle of wine to enjoy. Breakfast is equally as good and sets you up for the day. It's warm, clean and nicely decorated, so all in all you can't go wrong!

An excellent Guest House where the rooms are immaculate and the evening meal a good "home-cooked" dinner. Would thoroughly recommend. Our bedroom was a twin with en-suite shower and it was spotless and very comfortable, the hosts are welcoming.
We had a delicious breakfast
