Good Hotel Guide Review

‘There is no finer place to stay to explore the Highlands,’ say fans of Carol and Gordon Bulloch’s ‘friendly’ B&B, ten minutes’ walk from town, on the edge of the Cairngorms national park. It receives a full entry this year for ‘lovely amenities’, hospitality and attention to detail. The ‘gracious’ hosts ‘have thought of every possible personal touch’. The early Edwardian stone house, designed by Alexander Marshall Mackenzie (architect of London’s Waldorf Astoria), overlooks ‘beautiful gardens’, with summer house, woodland and pond. New arrivals are welcomed with tea and home-made scones by the drawing room fire. Each bedrooms is named after an Arts and Crafts designer and has freshly baked cakes. Well-equipped bathrooms have underfloor heating, Scottish toiletries, a choice of a whirlpool bath, a double-ended slipper bath with rainfall shower over, or a walk-in shower with body jets. A breakfast that’s ‘worth skipping dinner for’ serves porridge with cream, whisky and heather honey, eggs from the resident free-range hens, a full Scottish with haggis, local sausages, black pudding. You can ask for a packed lunch before hitting the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail or spending a day fishing. (Nancy Iriye)

Guest comments

'You should go out of your way to stay at this idyllic inn. It could not have been more enjoyable. Carol and Gordon are the most thoughtful hosts, and so kind. Lovely amenities include luxury bedding, heated bathroom floor and towel racks, and beautiful gardens. The breakfast is worth skipping dinner for--a huge assortment and also made to order choices. ' - Nancy Iriye - September, 2017
'This was our second stay. Everything is understated first class. Not fussy, just right. And with a very friendly feel. On our first visit several years earlier we were in an auto accident. Carol and Gordon were wonderful during this difficult time, and did everything they could to help us. Simply wonderful people. Our favorite place in Scotland. ' - Phillip Shaffer - September, 2014
'The perfect place to stay. Everything is done to make your visit special, from the luxuriously furnished house and bedrooms, the beautiful gardens, the delicious breakfast and "cake fairy" treats each day, to the warm hospitality of the owners. They make all the food using the highest quality locally sourced ingredients, and provide luxuries you would expect from a five-star hotel. ' - Denise Carr - April, 2013
'Carol and Gordon run an utterly luxurious B&B. It's so cosy, and they are wonderful hosts. The house is full of interesting Arts & Crafts furniture. One of the main draws is the food. The breakfast is one of the best I've eaten anywhere. And the 'cake fairy' is a fabulous little treat. So many small and thoughtful touches like this, made us feel thoroughly pampered. ' - Flora Marriott - April, 2012
