Our five night stay at the Inchgeal Lodge was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable trips we've taken, in no small part because of the accommodation itself. Set alongside the beautiful river Dee, the B&B was clean, fresh and well maintained. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom was modern, with the shower powerful and refreshing. Free wifi,... More

2 scruffy bikers arrived at 6:00pm looking for a couple of rooms for the night. We were greeted warmly by the landlady who showed us a choice of rooms at a discounted rate. The rooms were clean and spacious, the bathroom perfectly adequate and the shower excellent. Wifi was free but signal was weak in my room (fine in the... More

Couldn't get a room in Braemar for the night, and this place was booked via the tourist information office there. Talk about worth the trip!! It's one of the few places I've stayed that I couldn't find any fault with. Our room was comfortable and clean, equipped with everything we needed including wi-fi. Had a top night's sleep and one...

I stayed at Inchgeal lodge B&B in Ballater, Scotland in May of 2015 and found it to be excellent in every way. Dianne the hostess is warm and friendly, the room we stayed in was large and airy with a beautiful view over vast green lawns with fabulous old beech trees. It is a big, old Victorian house, originally built... More

Stayed here whilst backpacking across Scotland as part of the TGO Challenge. Diane was welcoming and very helpful. I left a plug adapter for my phone behind and Diane gave this to some fellow Challengers who were also staying at Inchgeal so that they could pass this back to me in Montrose. Bedroom was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was... More

Stayed one night in Ballater with my boyfriend and in-laws. Booked quite late and Inchgeal was the only place that had suitable rooms for us. It's a beautiful, elegant house, really central. Immaculate with lovely rooms and great showers. Breakfast was very good, no complaints. Owner lovely and welcoming. Thanks for a really nice stay. Would stay again and recommend.... More

Although this bed and breakfast has only a few rooms the double room we stayed in was beautiful room with view looking out over driveway and river with plenty of space a lovely ensuite bathroom and comfy bed, the breakfast was very good and service was excellent through out our stay. Ideally located for walking or hiking in beautiful Ballater.

We stayed for three nights and got a very good price offered and were not disappointed. We had a ground floor room which was large and had a good bathroom. Diane was lovely and served a very good breakfast. The guest lounge was a wonderful place to watchTV in the evening warmed by a wood burner. Ballater is a good... More

Five of us stayed for two nights at the beginning of October. Four of us were climbing, my wife just wanted to relax after the Ryder Cup. Shops were conveniently close for her to potter around on foot and the house warm, so she spent a good deal of the day just relaxing with a book. Rooms were extremely generously... More

Having tried a number of other B and Bs in Ballater and finding no vacancies we came across Inchgeal Lodge and what a find. The owners made us feel welcome and were extremely friendly. The guest lounge had the hottest wood stove we have ever experienced, but welcomed on a cold night. The breakfast was a traditional Scottish one and... More
