“very good B&B”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

A great B&B with lovely breakfast and a fantastic dinner! The room was very nice and clean.Lydie made us feel very welcome. The whiskey which was waiting for us when we got there was a nice surprise. We loved our stay and would recommend this place to anyone.

I can't speak highly enough of Auld Alliance. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. The food is among the best we have ever had. Lots interesting and well sourced ingredients. The breakfast was a refreshing change from the usual fair. The fruit compote and cocotte were divine. Lydie gave us lots of local information and indulged us in chatting about food, which she clearly knows all about! We were there on honeymoon and were delighted that Lydie helped us celebrate with some flowers and a glass of kir royal. Completely above and beyond what you'd expect. We will certainly be returning for our anniversaries each year, I simply can't wait. Might squeeze in a winter trip as well to get the best out of the front room and the fire!

Xmas and New Year at the Auld Alliance was special anddisctintive.
Lydie the owner and excellent chef, supported by Sandra her Liverpudlian jack of all trades made this a stay to remember and savour. They provide the type of service that not even a 5 star hotel can match.
From the roaring log fires in the middle of winter to the mouth watering meals, all different and unique, this was a stay that everyone should experience at least once.
The personal service and individual touches made you feel completely at home and comfortable whilst also being totally spoilt.
Other have gone on about the food so I wont bore you with repeating how excellent and tasty it was, but if anyone is going to the cairngorms they should definitely try the restaurant, simple, unpretentious but totally classy!!!

The owner & manager, lovely Lydie, modestly describes the Auld Alliance as a ' restaurant with rooms ' rather than a ' hotel ' . However, the Auld Alliance exudes cosy comfort and character and Lydie's cooking is a gastronomic treat. If you enjoy a wee dram, the bonus is that B & B includes a fine malt which you can savour in front of a roaring log fire. Truly , she creates a charming ' home from home ' atmosphere .

basic accommodation, but nicely done,could do with some biscuits and more shampoo/soap, very hospitableand friendly host, nice sitting room with comfy chairs and log fire, and a snug ! breakfast was best we've ever had, not traditional just different, tasted very fresh, would certainly recommend, and would stay again, didn't try the evening meal as you had to order that morning, but after the breakfast would sample in future
