Very nice and relaxed stay
The hotel and room was very clean and tidy. It had a really nice vibe and I felt welcome as a solo traveller, I'm a vegan and the food was superb especially the soup. Couldn't ask for more for the price.

Royal connections.
First visit to Ballater. Quaint little visit with Royal links. The Deeside Hotel is also quaint and homely. Ornate rooms and period furniture add to the atmosphere. Comfortable bedroom with nice extras. Breakfast was superb with excellent choice.
