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

We spent three night at the Moorfield House hotel and could not have been better treated. Ian and Elspeth are fabulous hosts catering to guests' every need. The rooms are clean, warm and comfortable. The food is superb from the perfectly cooked poached eggs in the morning to the unique dishes prepared each evening in the small (eight table) dining... More

This is a dog friendly hotel. We had a lovely room in an annex next to the hotel. Very quiet. Lovely owners. Super food both in the evening and at breakfast. Very helpful. Lovely walks nearby. Would definitely return.

A group of four of us booked to stay at the hotel overnight while walking from Blair Atholl to Coylumbridge, via Linn of Dee. Ian could not have been more helpful, giving us lifts, setting up a private dining room, enabling us to have dinner after the kitchen was scheduled to have closed and providing packed lunches for day 2...
