Rooms are fresh and well set up - not large, but workable. There;s a drying room for wet walking gear. Friendly helpful hosts. Breakfast was excellent. Location is great - a short walk from the main street. Quiet location. Warm and dry!

Stayed here 3 times in 10 years. Lovely people, fine B&B. Would not hesitate to recommend. Breakfast is plentiful and good variety. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful with anything you might need. Great location for the area.

Our family of six stayed at the Craiglea for one night and would loved to have stayed longer. Braemar sits in a lovely, wooded valley, in stark contrast to the barren hills and mountains covering most of the region. The owners (Dave and Angela) are very friendly, and I had a good time talking cycling with Dave after breakfast. Breakfast... More

We certainly enjoyed this place! The room was huge as was the bathroom with both a shower and extra large bathtub. Breakfast was outstanding with a wide assortment to choose from. Close in town, but on a quiet side street with parking behind. Friendly hosts attended to a full house of guests with ease. Perfect place to stay for Grampian... More

We spent three nights at Craiglea Bed and Breakfast, two nights in room 1, which was very spacious and comfortable and the last night in room 5, which was very neat but comfortable. The owners Dave and Angela acknowledged that room 5 was smaller but this was due to planning restrictions. On arrival, we were met by Angela who provided... More

We just want to second the reviews which tell of a great location and good accommodations. Make sure you get the smoked salmon in scrambled eggs for breakfast; what a treat! Super hosts with excellent dinner location recommendations. Highly recommended. (Had some difficulty with the wi-fi, but it was our computer not the hosts' server.)

Craiglea is situated in a lovely little town, with stunning surroundings. I had a small amount of trouble finding the spot within the town. The hosts were very nice when I arrived, and got me situated pretty quickly. The room was nice and cozy, though the bed wasn't particularly comfortable. I only stayed on night, but it was a good...

After a long day on our bikes it was with some relief that we arrived at our B&B. Our host was excellent and helped us sort our very wet clothes in the drying room followed by a hot drink and cake! He then helped us clean our bikes and store them safely. Very clean, smart B&B. I'd recommend for cyclists,... More

Stayed at Craiglea for two nights over easter to do some hiking around the area. Dave & his wife were extremely welcoming, it was wonderful to have a hot cup of tea and home made biscuits upon arrival after the long drive from Edinburgh. The rooms were really comfortable and cosy, heating up really fast, and the beds were really... More
