Three of us were welcomed with tea and biscuits on a rainy afternoon by Val and Keith. They could not have been more accomodating and helpful. The house is set back a bit behind some woods near the end of the main road through Grantown so it is in a very quiet and peaceful setting. We were able to watch... More

This B&B has 5 star accreditation but elects to operate as a 4 star. We stayed for three nights in Aug. 2013 using An Cala as a base for three days walking on the Speyside Way. An Cala (haven / port in a storm) is a lovely Victorian villa set in half an acre on the outskirts of the town.... More

Good breakfast, and a short walk into town! We traveled with a baby and they were very accommodating. Keith has lots of suggestions of out-doors activities! Rooms were well appointed and bed was comfortable.

Very warm welcome from Val who made us feel very welcome and even reserved a table for our evening meal at a nearby hotel. Room was very cosy with all the usual facilities including fresh milk for our cup of tea first thing in the morning. Breakfast was good as well! Well worth a stay, but be quick, they may... More

We can only echo the previous reviewer's comments, having stayed in the same room on the 20th May 3013. Everything was perfect. A grand, well looked after, stately house. We would definitely stay there again. Breakfast was lovely as was the view into the front garden. Val and Keith very helpful and friendly.
