This is an inn/pub rather than a traditional B&B. The location is a long way from Aboyne and Tarland is just a small village. The room is a bit cramped but neat and tidy. The staff are pleasant but the breakfast was very average compared to proper B&Bs that only charge a little more. I wouldn't stay here again if... More

our very first 3 out of 5 score in ten years and find the critic confusing - we don't advertise anywhere as a b&b - if one wants to stay in a traditional B&B why book a hotel? We also clearly state in our address and location that the hotel is Tarland, Aboyne however we have an Aboyne postcode and... More

Wasnt a problem for me but be aware just in case you think you can wander into Aboyne. The hotel was just... More

While I didn't get to stay as the hotel was already full, my family did, and I stayed up the road at the manse B and B. The commercial staff made our three day visit to Scotland all we imagined it could be- they were welcoming, informative, helpful and just lovely! Thank you! Great food and great staff!

From the outside this didn't look like much but as soon as you walk through front door you will not be disappointed and to cap it off the food served is top notch also so if looking to stay in this area I wouldn't go anywhere else

Stayed for one night and was so surprised how quiet and relaxing the place was. Best nights sleep in any of the hotels I have stayed. Clean and cosy bedroom and everything you needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.
