    Worth its 3 stars. Generally, the place was classic. We spent 1 night in suite. Employees were loyal and helpful.

    Staff are professional, location is quiet! The view out of the windows was pretty. Moreover, we parked our car onsite. They served splendid food for breakfast.

    We really loved rooms and staff. Adjacent to the downtown, 10 minutes on foot. We can't wait to come back as everything met requirements.

    Very nice hotel, located on the outskirts of Ballater with a view of the nature and the adjacent golf course. Our room was very nice and furnished with love and very clean. But there is no lift in the hotel, so that we had to carry the suitcases up the stairs. The staff was without exception warm, courteous and helpful. The dinner was good, but not outstanding. The breakfast was sufficient, varied and tasty. All in all we were satisfied.

    Nice small hotel in a good, quiet location on the outskirts of Ballater. Very good breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The hotel asked us some time before our arrival if we wanted to reserve a table for dinner. Staff very friendly. We got a free upgrade to a suite on arrival.

    As in many hotels in Great Britain there are only a few sockets available.

    Nice location. Rooms with great view. Friendly and helpful staff at the reception.

    The standard of the rooms is very different. The standard rooms are relatively small with little comfort, one category above that the rooms are very good.

    I was attenting my friends wedding on the 3rd november so only slept here for one night and had breakfast but Very friendly staff and was impressed to see our waiter at breakfast in a kilt. Would love to go back in the summer for a relaxing weekend :) xo

    My room was alright but my friends were in another room and it looked very dated.

    A great hotel in the town which takes dogs in the garden rooms. These are delightful, spacious and warm. The main hotel had a cosy lounge and bar with a great roaring fire to come back to in an evening. Sweet little bar with a good pint of Cairngorm Tradewinds ale. The breakfast room looks out over the golf course through the trees with red squirrels running around outside. Idyllic.
