Nice and clean guest house, tasty breakfast and a warm welcome in Scotland. The guest house is in town centre in a quiet street. Thank you, Gordon! Excellent advices for our dinner too. Reccomendable.

The accommodation was up-to-date, clean and comfortable with spacious rooms.... More

We really enjoyed our one night stay - the room (especially the bathroom!) was wonderful, the maps/restaurant recommendations were helpful, and breakfast the next day was delicious.

Ballater is a great little town- and so close to Balmoral! The Netherley House was a wonderful find. Good location, brilliant breakfast, friendly host, all in all, one of our favorites. Clean modern bathrooms and nice amenities. Enjoyed wandering in the town- delightful shops!

Cosy spotless room, fine breakfast and a great host. Went to Ballater to do some cycling, we got to check in early (11am), so could get changed in our room, and in the evening there was a secure place for us to keep the bikes. Great location in the town centre.

Found this place late in the day, just by driving by, after taking too long to drive there from the Perth area. Stayed only one night due to schedule. Room was VERY large, high-cielinged, with twin beds and a very new, nicely remodeled bathroom. Gordon was a charming host, letting us view the room before we said 'yes,' helped to... More

Clean, comfortable and very welcoming. Ideal base for visiting the Cairngorms with plenty of outdoor pursuits to enjoy. Rooms are clean and comfortable with everything you need. Gordon is the perfect host. Highly recommended.

We spent some nights at the Netherley Guesthouse and felt very comfortable. The house is modern, charming and clean. The breakfast room is very unconventional equipped compared with standard B&B's. The hosts were very friendly.
