The best thing about the hotel is the friendliness of the staff. I was made to feel very welcome and they asked about my journey when I arrived. During my stay they took an interest in where I had been and what I had been doing. Richard is nice, laid back and friendly.
The kippers for breakfast were superb and a great start to the day.
The hotel is very convenient for Grampian Transport Museum, Alford Valley Railway and Craigievar Castle.
The hotel is in a very pretty location on the banks of the River Dee and the conservatory where you have breakfast looks out to the river and the bridge and over to the fields.
Macaroni cheese for dinner one night was a big and tasty portion, ideal if you have been out walking or cycling like me. Fish and chips the next night was equally good. They have a good selection of whisky at the bar.
The room was simple, but I didn't need anything more as I was out and about all day. It was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. Minor point is that the water pressure for the shower could be better.
I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend the hotel to anyone planning a visit to the area.
