We were warmly welcomed by Denise when we arrived and shown to our lovely cosy twin room. There were several choices of cooked breakfast, I had eggs benedict which was cooked to perfection! My partner had porridge which was also delicious. There was also homemade bread which was lovely. I would love to return there on my next visit to...

Stayed here for a night before venturing into the mountains for a few days. Great location for exploring the east Highlands. Good large room with bath and shower, great breakfast. Fantastic knowledgeable host who even made the bread to compliment a great breakfast. Can't fault it

This is the best guest house I have stayed in, cosy, clean, comfortable and very, very welcoming people. Best advice given for the local area for places to visit and for eating out, only stayed for one night with a friend and her 3 year old but will definitely be back and recommending to as many people as possible! Absolutely...

East nearby parking, charming guest house, immaculate interior, very, very, clean . What separates this b+b, aside from the jaw droppingly low price, superb breakfast and massive rooms, the service is perfect.

Wow! Our ground floor room at the rear, with it's own street entrance, was enormous. Even our own table and chairs. Diane, our host, is lovely; very welcoming and helpful with suggestions for dining options and routes to our next destination. Parking is free, but either on the street or in the council carpark opposite. Very good breakfast.

The drive to Tomintoul is spectacular! We spent two nights here. It is a great location as a base for seeing the distilleries. Serene and beautiful biking and hiking nearby too. The village is pretty sleepy at night so if you are looking for pub entertainment, stay in Aviemore or Grantown on Spey. The innkeeper here is lovely. I was...

Came from the north and arrived in the lovely village of Tomintoul. Denise, our very friendly landlady, set us up in a great room with large bath room and nothing missing. Breakfast was super and we had 5 cocked options to chose from (all cocked by Denise husband). We got great tips on activities and very pleased with the options...
