David Mature couple Norwich, United Kingdom 3 November 2011

It was a perfect quiet location yet close to all restaurants etc in the town. Lovely room with an excellent view. Val and Sandy were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was first class. We were going to a wedding but as we had the key to the front door there was no problem about being back really late. It's Val and Sandy's house but the rooms have their own separate entrance which makes it very private. We had booked the double room with an external bathroom but we swopped to the first floor ensuite which was bigger and had the view.

 Anonymous Mature couple United Kingdom 17 September 2011

Friendly welcome - proximity to town centre 

Merrilyn Mature couple Rundle Mall, Australia 16 September 2011

Cesar Mature couple Brasilia, Brazil 13 August 2011

Cathy Family with older children BOURNE END, United Kingdom 11 August 2011

Good sized room for family of 3. Free to come and go as we pleased which isn't always easy in bed and breakfast accommodation. Discount at local hotel for supper thanks to owner of b&B. Spotless room. Helpful and friendly landlady. Everything was fine but it needs to be made even clearer that no credit cards will be taken as payment. Luckily I still had a cheque book with me!

Laura Young couple salisbury, United Kingdom 9 August 2011

Home from Home Lovely b and b We went for a wedding. Owners felt like family :) Scotland has a greatness Cant wait to go Back ! Laura and Andrew Matless Salisbury Wiltshire

Andy Young couple Waterlooville, United Kingdom 27 July 2011

Val & Sandy were great hosts, what an excellent place to stay. Will definitely go back if we visit Grantown on Spey again. 

Hélder Family with older children Caldas da Rainha, Portugal 15 July 2011

We arrived with a lousy weather, lots of rain, but as we entered, the warm welcome of the owners made us forget those conditions outside. It was much better than I antecipated when I booked the room (and I really was expecting to be good!...). The owners are superb hosts and make you feel like part of their own family. Great experience. Great breakfast. Spotless cleaning. Definitely a place to be back in a next visit to Scotland. 

Mick Young couple Portobello, United Kingdom 12 July 2011

The bed was like sleeping on a cloud Breakfast, while it was fantastic, it was very hard to get out of the cloud bed by 8:30 Did you find this review helpful? yes no 9.2 Maria Family with young children Moscow, Russia 12 July 2011 Hospitality of owners

David Mature couple LEVEN, United Kingdom 2 July 2011 Central location.

Richard Young couple Aberdeen, United Kingdom 23 June 2011

Jill Solo traveller Filey, United Kingdom 20 June 2011

Lovely clean guest house . Really comfortable bed - super bathroom . a really good choice of breakfast - which would cater for everyone's needs and tastes . Plenty of parking space . Not far from the main road but very quiet . Easy to walk from Westhaven to local woods and public footpaths - so I didn't need the car . Hosts very knowledgable about the local area and further afield . Super hosts - made to feel very welcome - treated more as a friend rather than a guest - thank you !

As I am involved in the whisky industry, the location is ideal for the Speyside ' Whisky Trail ' . 

Martin Group of friends Gävle, Sweden 9 June 2011

 Clean, large rooms with stunning views and great facilities. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Highly recomended! 

Dobromila Group of friends Bruxelles, Belgium 9 June 2011

location, comfort, room was very clean and neat, breakfast was perfect with fruits and whatever one could ask for. 

Alan Mature couple helsby, United Kingdom 5 June 2011

Porridge with a dram was excellent. Huge bathroom/shower room was nice (although it was across corridor from bedroom, this was not a problem) I would describe place as a bed and breakfast rather than hotel. View from the bedroom over the hills as the sun set was somthing I'll remember for a long time.

James Mature couple Ottawa, Canada 3 June 2011

We enjoyed being very comfortable and well cared for. We did not like the fact that the bathroom was not en-suite, but we got over it, the jacuzzi was excellent. 

Helen Group of friends WARWICK, Australia 2 June 2011

A lovely b & b, great location and very comfortable.

Val is a wonderful helpful host, and a fantastic cook. Breakfast was delicious!

We had a hard time figuring out the shower, even with written directions. It was difficult to get a water temperature between cold and scalding.

Jacuzzi and dual shower!! Morning breakfast was a treat as well.

Bathroom was seperate to room (across hallway). Not a great problem, but not obvious from the website description.

La habitación muy bien decorada, la cama muy comoda. nuestro baño enorme, con bañera y ducha hidromasaje doble (aunque fuera de la habitación pero no compartido - con tu llave). La dueña muy amable. Buen desayuno y buenas recomendaciones de restaurantes.

Sehr ruhig und zentral gelegen, luxuriöser Komfort der Zimmer, sehr nette Besitzer, Parkmöglichkeiten vorhanden. Kann ich nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen.

Sant Climent de Llobregat, Spain
September 22, 2008

Habitació, Bany i personal de molta qualitat  

Tan sols el fet que el bany i l'habitació estan en dos portes diferents, pero la qualitat del bany amb jacuzzi i dutxa gegant multi-funció compensen aquest fet.

La cucina è il cavallo di battaglia di quella struttura  


August 31, 2008

Sehr gepflegte, mit viel Liebe zum Detail ausgestattete B&B Unterkunft.

Es ist kein Hotel, sondern eine B&B Unterkunft. Keine Möglichkeit zur Zahlung mit der Karte. Keine Möglichkeit zum Abendessen in der Unterkunft.

san didero, Italy
August 21, 2008

Abbiamo apprezzato la gentilezza dello staff e soprattutto della sig.ra Val, in camera c'era di tutto e di piu', tutto eccellente  

l'unica pecca e' la mancanza di segnaletica stradale. In paese nessuno conosceva il posto e arrivando di notte e' stato difficilissimo trovarlo!  

SADA, Spain
August 5, 2008

Es un B/B nuevo, la dueña encantadora, el desayuno de primera. La habitacion confortable y el baño una pasada, ducha de hidromasaje, bañera de hidromasaje, alboenoz....

La unica pega era que aunque el cuarto de baño no se comparte con nadie estaba fuera de la habitación, en la puerta de enfrente, por eso cada vez que querias usar el baño tenias que salir al pasillo.
