Angela has just started managing this long standing B&B set in the gorgeous little town of Ballater. It is a large residence complete with separate guest lounge. It used to close in October but luckily under new management it was still open. My room was cosy and comfortable. Breakfast was also very good. A lovely stay.

This is a small guest house managed by a hard working staff. The establishment is ideally situated just a short walk from the location of the Games and the town centre of Ballater. My friend and I stayed on a bed and breakfast basis in clean and secure rooms, and in addition to the stay enjoyed cooked Scottish breakfasts, with... More

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.

A real home from home. The proprietor, Gordon, was an excellent host when myself and nine friends stayed for the weekend. Nothing was too much trouble. At breakfast time there was so much to choose from, you were spoilt for choice. There was certainly no need to go away hungry. The accommodation was up-to-date, clean and comfortable with spacious rooms.... More

Netherley Guest House was a very charming B&B in the very cute/quaint town of Ballater. 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. It's close to several activities - Balmoral Castle was only about 15 minutes away, and the Cairngorms National... More

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
