We adored this B&B! The home is stunning with large rooms and elegant decor. The living area with open fire provided an area to relax and unwind. Very romantic for couples and those touring through the area. The hosts were very welcoming and open to help/provide recommendations. The breakfast was fresh and very tasty. We will definitely come back.

Dave's warm welcome set the tone for two terrific days here. A stylish and comfy country house, beautifully done & spotlessly clean we appreciated the extra generous touches which made this a special place to stay. Val's culinary delights wowed us! Thank you!

I hesitate to write this review if only because I am afraid that this little gem in Speyside will be booked solid when we try to return - and we WILL be back someday! House is beautiful and perfectly restored, our room (the Glenlivet) was enormous and gorgeous. We slept like bears in a cave with those wooden shutters...almost missed... More

Nestled away in the heart of the whisky trail, is this beautiful home with several ample rooms for the weary traveler. The home is modern yet impressively period with furniture and architecture. Rooms are very modern with great bathrooms/showers and, as well the rooms are quiet. Dave and his wife are great hosts making sure that we were settled in... More

Beautiful B&B and great hosts. Warm welcome in person and by fire. Dave even joined in and shared a dram of whisky. Great rooms, beds, shower, location (although a bit off the beaten track, just adds to the uniqueness). Breakfast was perfect. All in all.... would make a detour just to stay there!

Food was excellent room was beautiful, Dave and Val look after all the guests superbly. Val is an exceptional cook. No bar but you can take your own wine to each meal so this is not a problem. Dave will put it in the ice and Cork for you. After meals settle down in a lounge with open fire... Perfect.

Beautiful country house in a quiet, idyllic location. Immaculately clean and full of charm. The log burning fires in the lounge and the dining room were very inviting. Val prepared a three course feast in the evening which was scrumptious. This, combined with Dave's welcoming nature and good humour, so attentive yet not at all intrusive, made the stay an... More
