Our reservation stated the hotel was in Balateer however the hotel is in Bramaer 16 miles away. The address also shows Balateer. They had said they have tried to get it corrected three times to no avail. We had paid for breakfast was was told we had to pay until we confirmed with reception.

Spacious bedroom clean and comfortable
Entrance area olde worlde -check in quick with all relevant info given. Bedroom on ground floor clean and comfortable. Lighting a bit subdued- not good for reading in communal areas. Staff all friendly and helpful. Buffet style breakfast - no complaints.

3/5 Okay

Three star Hotel
Perfect place to put your head down after a hard day touring. Don't expect anything else from a 3 star hotel. Did not eat there upon receiving recommendations from locals to eat elsewhere. Adequate facilities. No complaints. Staff looked after us changing rooms that had lift access for us being older travellers. Grateful for that.

The hotel is in need of a major makeover. The receptionist saved the holiday she was extremely helpful and was covering various positions at the hotel which was clearly understaffed The food wasn’t great especially in the hotel dining room, cool chicken and inedible mashed potato Breakfast buffet was cold Hotel bathroom dark with missing lights, dirty sanitary ware This hotel is in a beautiful area where hotels are limited but the Invercauld arms needs to get its act together before I return
