Stayed for the week in one of the lodges while on a walking holiday and as such it was spot on and very much fit for purpose; clean comfortable and warm and with a separate communal drying room for when the weather was bad. The only minor quibble I’d have about the lodge, and it’s the same for almost all... More

We didn't stay at the Lodge because it was full but we had the MOST AMAZING dinner there. Can't recommend the food more highly. And the whisky collection is EPIC. The service was super friendly too. Visit!

We could walk into town and to the play area. The food in the lodge was very good although we... More

We stopped over at the Braemar Lodge hotel on the way North from Perth to Elgin and booked into the last of the available twin bedded cabins. We ate in the restaurant, and thoroughly enjoyed our high quality dinners, the desserts must be seen to be believed ! The hotel stocks a good range of local ales to sample too.... More

We stopped off in Braemar for a night's camping on a tour of Scotland and came across Braemar Lodge Hotel. (Only a 5 minute walk from the campsite.) The bothie / back bar is quaint with an open fire, tartan carpet, deer-heads on the wall and a crackin' ale and whisky selection. Exactly what you'd like and want in a... More

We had a family gathering here at the weekend, we stayed in lodges and ate dinner in the hotel at night, our meal was lovely, well presented and good quality food, we couldn'tt fault the service, it can be difficult serving a large party and the staff were very good, definitely return again.

Stayed at this hotel in December 2014 we booked a deluxe room that had beautiful views over the Cairngorms national park. We went down for dinner in the evening and started our night in the beautiful whisky bar that has hundreds of variety's of whisky and a roaring log fire. When we went for our dinner the dining room has... More

This was our second trip to the Cabins at Braemar for a quiet weekend break in March. The cabins are spotless, we were in number 7 which also had a bath. Everything needed for a self catering break is in the cabin and they are in very quiet grounds so its a very peaceful place, we will definitely be back.... More
