My partner and I stayed for 2 nights, and found Craiglea a lovely B&B option for exploring the Royal Deeside. Warm welcome; cozy, tidy room with comfortable bed; great big bathtub; nice location to walk to the town (though there's not too much there/open in late December); good breakfast; and helpful advice from Dave as to where to walk in...

We had 3 nights in Craiglea B&B back in March and used it as a base to try our the near by skiing. Just bear in mind this is a B&B not a 5* hotel and you'll stay happy! Our room was nice and spacious for the two of us (although I do think it was the biggest available) and... More

Slightly cramped room, with dripping tap and questionable layout, more than made up for by welcoming and friendly hosts. Well positioned for local facilities, and as a base for travelling. Overall I would certainly recommend.

If you expect to sleep comfortably in a "Double", you might be slightly disappointed. We did not sleep... Breakfast is, if compared with other B&Bs weithin the same price range, again disappointing. Do not think you might go collecting mushrooms in the forrest and have it cooked for breakfast, even if you are promised to get it. You will get,... More

We spent two nights in Braemar, in two different B&B for the same price, so my advice is a bit biased. Following a mishap in our reservation for the first night, we ended up in Craiglea who welcomed us very nicely even though we had no booking. We had a twin room, and it was a bit small for two...

We travelled to Braemar on a photographic holiday and stayed at Craiglea from 21st June to the 28th June, we found it to be a lovely B & B with extremely nice hosts. Dave and Angela are friendly, informative and very helpful. Dave told us of some great spots for photography and how to get there. We had room 3... More

We found our room extremely small and not up to the standard of most of the other B and B's we visited on our trip to the UK. The hosts were very friendly, the breakfast good, and they appeared to be trying hard. Were helpful at suggesting local hikes etc. however, that could not overcome the postage sized room which...

I stayed here in May 2014. I'd been on a long days walk and was very tired. I arrived at the B&B, and as other reviewers mentioned, the owner Dave needs to learn more people skills if he intends to carry on working with people ! I was on my own and was told they only had a double room... More

We are sorry Richard that you felt that the price for the room was too expensive and that I was not very accommodating. The room that you had (Room 5) is on the small side unfortunately but that was the only room we had left available on that particular evening. It is classed as an en-suite double room. We have...

We have just returned from a lovely weekend in the Glenshee area and stayed here. Lovely bed and breakfast providing everything we were looking for - comfy beds, great location for Braemar and close to the skiing at Glenshee, hot showers, free wifi, parking and good breakfast. We had room 6 which is quite a small en suite twin but... More
