My husband and I and our two small dogs had a brilliant holiday last week. We ate in the restaurant every night. The food including the breakfasts were superb. This is a very dog friendly place to stay, the dogs allowed in the bar when food is not being served. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely... More

A fantastic find in a quaint little Scottish town. We only stopped in for dinner, but we for the clientele friendly and warm, the food beyond recommendable and the hospitality went above and beyond for us. Definitely go, even if it's just for a drink.

Stayed for 1 night for a wedding, nice greeting from lovely friendly staff it is very clean, the single room was a bit small the double was fine we had a meal late afternoon which was very very nice. Ballater is not a big place so easy walking to the village.

We visited the Alexandra Hotel 29th January 2015 for an evening meal. The Hotel is spotless and the welcome from Fiona was very warm and as it turned out her knowledge and advice was invaluable. We had the 8oz sirloin steak and the haddock and chips and I can honestly say that the meals were superb and very good value.... More

The food was cooked to perfection and very good value for money [those who had steaks said they were cooked to perfection whether rare, medium/rare or medium]. There was a good range for all courses, including those... More

This is a centrally located hotel in one of the most beautiful towns in the Highlands. It's a wee bit shabby but the rooms were spotless, the shower was warm and powerful, and the breakfast was fantastic. We didn't have dinner there - we went to the incredible Indian on the Green - but the bar was quite nice despite... More
