Ideally situated to tour the highlands in any direction you wish. The hotel is a work in progress, with the rooms needing an upgrade. Bathrooms are modern, dining and food very good. Rates excellent. Service from the team was excellent. If you like modern, featureless hotels with lots of in house facilities, then the Brander is not for you. If... More

The hotel is lovely, a well stocked bar and the food was excellent. The one thing that especially made it for me was the customer service, nothing was too much trouble for... More

The owner welcomed us warmly and asked us to check the chalet to see if everything was to our liking upon our arrival. The chalet was clean and there was tea & coffee facilities as well as basic toiletries and towels available. The service and food at the hotel near the chalet were excellent!

Super kitchen with laundry facilities. Lots of comfy beds! Close by is a petrol station where we picked up groceries for breakfast but reading other reviews we should have had breakfast... More

We had dinner here following a recommendation and it was wonderful. We were a party of 4 adults and 4 children (ages 7,8, 9 & 10) and we could not have been made to feel more welcome. The owner showed us to a lovely comfortable lounge where we sat for drinks before dinner. Had the weather been better the children... More
