My husband had purchased Virgin Experience vouchers as a gift for me and as the hotel (a sister hotel as part of the Crerar group) I had chosen originally, was fully booked,we chose the Deeside inn. Having read through the reviews on here we were still happy enough and looking forward to our stay. We checked in on the 22nd... More

Small rooms, only room enough to open the suitcases on the bed. Very hard mattress. Great lounge, good food and great service. The place is old, but they are making improvements. Good location, not far from the same shops where Queen Elizabeth shops on holiday.

Charming inn. The food in the restaurant was excellent. Really enjoyed the live music in the pub. Staff was very attentive and nice. Would definitively stay here again. The room was small and cute, but the bathroom was not top notch.

Stayed one night with a group of 12. Check in was friendly and efficient. The bar and lounge area is a pleasant place for relaxing. The set menu dinner was excellent and breakfast was very good. The bedrooms are basic and need sprucing up and the mattress was not the best -I could feel springs. All staff were pleasant and... More

Lovely highland welcoming hotel. Bedrooms are nice , clean but basic. Pets are welcome which we took advantage of. I think £10 per dog per night is a bit steep though!. Overall I would highly recommend it.

I went into this place this evening for a bite to eat, the place itself is ok, the food was ok but you wouldn't want to be the hungry kind of person as they skimp more than a bit for the prices they charge. Anyway I had a joke with the manager about portion sizes but once the bill came... More

Was staying here for one night with my boyfriend and really liked the hotel. The hotel itself is very central and is great value for money. We had a lovely view of the town from our room. Downstairs is lovely and very comfortable and has lots of chairs and fireplace which is great. The rooms were nice but the furniture... More
