Didn't stay at the Moorfield but had booked it for evening meals during our 3 night stay as it is one of the few places in Braemar that allows pets into the bar area. The service and food were really good. The bar area has metal furniture which looks uncomfortable but isn't. Bar also has a log stove, which adds... More

My husband and I visited on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews but were seated in a room with no windows and metal chairs and tables. Once we realised this was where they were proposing to serve dinner we decided to leave- there was only one other customer there so the host was clearly annoyed. We had a drink and... More

Rubbish Review !! It helps if you get you facts right when you leave a review !! What happened was on arrival they were invited to have a seat in the bar to look at the menu, make their choices and have a drink while the meal was being prepared. Dinner is served in our lovely conservatory style restaurant which... More

I stayed there with my boyfriend for Valentine's night. After the arrival, we have been informed that there's nowhere for us to eat in the hotel restaurant , because all the tables were booked out to people who were not even guests!!! When I dared to ask for explanations and advise on where else could we go and eat, the... More

A very selective and inaccurate review of events from someone who clearly thought they were a bit of Diva ! This couple booked B&B online for Valentines Night. On arrival I explained that as it was Valentines night other guests and others had already booked all of the tables after 7.00pm - so it is not true that they could... More

I stayed here for one night in Mid March due to work commitments in the area. Following quite a lengthy drive i arrived at around 19:30 where i was greeted by the warmth of a roaring log burner and the friendly smile of the owner Ian. Up on check in Ian explained that it was quiet season and there was... More

Just got back from a four night stay at the Moorfield House Hotel. The hospitality was great after long days in the hills but the food was the highlight. Every course excellent throughout. I'll definitely be back!

The welcome felt genuine when we first arrived and the same relaxed informality continued during our two night stay. It was true Scottish hospitality. Our bedroom was bright but the lounge (where wifi reception was best) was a bit dark to be comfortable for long. The bar (which we didn't frequent - for once!) had a fire and looked much... More

Thanks to everyone at Moorfield. It's not the first time we have arrived soaking wet from the hills. Yet, it's never any trouble for the team to welcome us in and have our kit dry and ready for the next day's adventure. An excellent choice of wines and beers to accompany good food. A really comfortable and friendly place to... More

Fantastic real ales, and a superb meal - reasonably priced. Greeted with a genuine warm welcome and also catered wonderfully for our adventurous 4 year old! Will certainly be back to stay for a night or two in the future.

We very much enjoyed our all too brief visit. A smiling welcome, a well-appointed and comfortable room and a very enjoyable dinner all added up to a most pleasant stay. Our two little dogs were allowed in the bar and the food was deliciously un-cheffy (and great value for money!) The absence of tv in the bedroom was, for us,... More
