Had an enjoyable weekend, we had a superior room (112) over looking road at front and river to side. The room was excellent with plenty of tea/coffee/drinking chocolate and water replenished on a daily basis. Very relaxing listening to the river in the evening.Meals were excellent with a good selection on offer. On arrival, there was nobody in attendance at... More

Spent a three night stay as part of a Ramblers Walking Weekend. Full bus load of passengers also staying in the hotel so I believe it was full. Like most of these old Hunting Lodge type hotels it is dated but full of character. Nice big lounge and entertainment in the evening. Bar with a couple of lounges and decent... More

This hotel takes centre stage in Braemar and is probably living off its reputation. Although clean enough the bar in the hotel lacked any atmosphere and the drinks served were of poor quality and seriously over-priced. I wouldn't recommend going here. Avoid.

My partner and I have just stayed here for 3 nights. From the outside the Fife Arms is a magnificent old building but once inside its a completely different story. We were in Braemar for The Gathering so the prices were exhorbitant for the first 2 nights and then 1/3 the price for the last night. Our bathroom was awful... More

Really did not enjoy the accomodation. Something in the bed made me itch both nights. It was also far from comfortable. Had intended to stay three nights but left after two. Stayed here for the Braemar Gathering. Staff tried to be helpful. We thought the food reasonable. Dinner both nights was quite good. This hotel really does need an overhaul.... More

The Fife Arms is an old fashioned building in an area where most visitors are unlikely to be looking for 5* luxury. Everything about the place was perfectly acceptable. The staff were helpful and efficient, our room was clean and roomy, the food was good and good value, too - in the bar for our evening meal. That said, the... More
