Trying to review the restaurant. We didn't stay at the Lodge. The restaurant was only "ok", although probably better than other options in Braemer that evening. For some reason, Trip Advisory wants me to review the Lodge rather than the restaurant.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at the main building of the lodge. The rooms are plain but large. The sink is in the bedroom because the bathroom is very small. The restaurant serves a good breakfast and dinner. the small town center is nearby. No help with suitcases and we are no youngsters.

We had two rooms reserved - a doctor (MD) from Spain and myself after a long, long journey from Harris Island that started at 5 a.m. that day. Suffice to say that when we arrived at the Braemar Lodge, I immediately noticed poor training of the check-in lady. She seemed unsure as to whether we were in a hotel room... More

With reference to your false review When you arrived (9.25 pm. ) you were met by a member of staff who has worked for me for (9) years & is trained by Visit Scotland & has regular refresher courses which she excels at. She asked you your name & which type of accommodation you had booked as we have 3... More

Calling this is a bunkhouse is a misnomer; it is the cleanest, comfiest, best equipped bunkhouse I've been in. It is very much like a comfy alpine lodge inside. Good drying room, very well equipped kitchen, super comfy beds and towels (wow), clean showers and toilets, all well stocked. No hesitation in giving bunkhouse10/10. You can also grab breakfast in...

I´m a little hesitant about writing this - It feels like I would like to keep the place as a secret, but at the same time I would like everybody to know how excellent this place really was! The Hunting lodge is very cosy, familiar, personal and still very professional - with exceptionally good service and very good food! We... More

Not a five star hotel but a wonderful spot in a beautiful area. Loved the feel of the place. The whisky bar is great and everyone was pleasant. The accompanying restaurant is wonderful for both breakfast and dinner..

Log cabins were ideal for a group to use as a base for mountain biking, we hired two for nine people. Enough room for everyone, and the la z boy sofas.....just great. The food in the hotel was second to none...it all made for a very good three days, cheers!

We stayed a single night in The Braemar Lodge on the final night of our driving tour of The Highlands. Unfortunately we got delayed in the Cairngorms and arrived at the hotel much later than we had planned well after 10:00PM. Fortunately the proprietor did not seem to mind staying up for us which was a great relief. The location... More

Stayed overnight in the "superior room" with four poster bed, room 2. Friendly staff. The room is clean and comfortable and all basic needs catered for, however, as we had spent the previous night in the Malmaison in Aberdeen it was a little disappointing especially as the room rate was more expensive! The bathroom is extremely small, and a bit... More
