“Lovely B&B very friendly owners”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a lovely weekend in the Glenshee area and stayed here. Lovely bed and breakfast providing everything we were looking for - comfy beds, great location for Braemar and close to the skiing at Glenshee, hot showers, free wifi, parking and good breakfast.

We had room 6 which is quite a small en suite twin but more than big enough for us and had everything we needed. For the price very reasonable.

The owners were very helpful and we thank them for making our stay a nice one. The added drying room for ski boots is an extra bonus after a good day skiing!

Just got back from staying 3 nights in a triple room for a short break skiing. accommodation is post on with very helpful pleasant owners. room was spacious, clean and just what we needed after a hard days ski. our room was en suite and there were plenty of power points for charging iPads, cameras, phones etc. to top it all off each morning we were presented a delicious cooked breakfast to set us up for the day

Very difficult b&b to find as the house had no name showing.
Comfortable room and bed.
Fairly large en suite,but an awful shower that just came out as a weak dribble!
Pleasant dining room and a very good breakfast.
The owner was friendly and cheerful.

Stayed at Craiglea before climbing Derry Cairngorm. This is a walker and cyclist friendly B&B. The bed was very comfy, the room had a TV, tea and coffee making facilities and free wi fi. The en-suite bathroom was quite small and on the cold side. David and Angela, were very accommodating by cooking us an early breakfast, which was very good with lovely bacon from the local butcher. They will also do an evening meal on request, which I wish we had requested as there were so few places open in Braemar to eat on a Sunday evening. Would stay there again.

We were in Braemar for a wedding at mar lodge so needed a room for 2 nights. The room was huge with a double bed and 2 singles, it was clean and comfortable, bathroom seemed fairly new. We met friends on the Friday who were all staying in the fife arms hotel and by comparison our B and B was far better!! Breakfast here was great - made to order and a decent selection. The owners were fantastic, very knowledgeable about the area and willing to share any info they could. We weren't in the B and B for much time but it was great for our stay and ticked all the boxes. There was a lot you could do through the B and B like cycling so I am sure if we had been up for a holiday we would have been just pleased with our stay. Would absolutely recommend.

Steep flight of stairs to room Number 1. Large room, double bed and a large, bright bathroom with bath and separate shower cubical. Rest of the house, entrance, stairs, and garden all in much need of careful tender loving care. Unremarkable breakfast. Advertsied that they had free WiFi, which was one of the attractive choices when I booked, but it was not working the night we stayed, frustrating! Welcoming hostess.

Room Tip: Room No 1 might be the best.
