We stayed here two nights whilst touring Scotland. Our en-suite room was on the ground floor and spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful and good to recommend superb eating places. Also the breakfasts were very good, with plenty of variety. Highly recommended.

Stayed for one night recently. Received a very friendly welcome from the owners. Double room was very comfortable with a small en-suite shower. Breakfast was great, smoked salmon and eggs for me but the fresh baked bread was a treat and a nice touch. Nice easy evening walk to Crags bar for pie and a pint too. Would happily stay...

We arrived wet and bedraggled from canoeing on the Spey, despite which we got a very warm welcome from Jan and Janny. The rooms were all very good: warm, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty with plenty of choice (but could have been hotter). We would recommend this guesthouse.

This is one of the best B & B's we have ever stayed in. The host's were very friendly and willing to suggest different places for evening meals. Their rooms are wonderful very bright and spacious, cosy and immaculate. Breakfast is served in the conservatory to the front of the house and the food was of very good quality.

Having stayed in and around Grantown on Spey many times in the last year, I am sad not to have tried Willowbank sooner! Your hosts are charming, happy, friendly and accommodating (literally).
