We visited Moorfield House for a meal which we great. Had some doubts about making the reservation as some of the reviews on Trip Advisor were awful, but discovered these were for the previous owner, but the new owners were very welcoming and both the meal and service were very good, will definitely call again when in the area.

Myself and my partner had booked in for a one night stay in September 2015. We had been invited to a wedding in Braemar, which is quite remote. Due to this, I contacted the hotel prior to arrival to request an early check in (as advertised on their website, this was apparently an option.). On phoning, and despite explaining that... More

This is one of two reviews posted by the same couple. I have responded in detail to their duplicate reviews under the heading ''Verbally Abusive Owner''.

Poor, poor and poor! Owner of the hotel was surprised because of my dog. He siad, that we can get in with dog to the bar only! Hotel's website says totally different story. Our room was very dirty. Plenty of stains on the floor and bed. Floor in the bathroom is extremely curved. This is unacceptable that i could't drink... More

It is very disappointing to get such a dishonest review as this. In this case I am not surprised given how dishonest this individual was in his dealings with us during his stay. Given this situation I must leave a detailed reply. They arrived with a dog not having made any arrangements / booking for a dog to stay .... More

We enjoyed a most delightful stay at Moorfield House Hotel a couple of months ago. Iain (the owner) was so very accommodating, the room was clean and peaceful and the breakfasts/evening meals were simply delicious! What more could you want! Granted, the rooms do not have TV, but they’re not advertised to have one and there is a perfectly good... More

It seems a bit strange at first but the hotel is lovely, great food and so friendly. The breakfasts were tasty even if the timing was a bit early and dinner was excellent and great value for money. Our hosts had a great Glasgow humour and were dedicated to making their guests stay enjoyable. Well worth a visit and definitely... More

Nice Hotel, cozy room and nice bathroom. The room is not very big, therefore there was only one chair in the room. The Manager was really kind and helpful. Delicious breakfast, that was served on nice big tables in the dining rom. And there was also a cozy bar, which we did not use. We would come again!
