My wife & I stayed for two nights at the Mash Tun, whilst touring round the north of Scotland. We did the distillery tour in Aberlour, and the Mash Tun was the perfect place to stay for touring around. We stayed in the Glenlivet room on the top floor and this was spacious, with a very comfortable bed and a... More

The Mash Tun has comfortable rooms, but the real treat is the pub downstairs. The food is fantastic- try the house made sausages- they are to die for. The breakfast is wonderful as well, and they will bring you just about anything you want. The trail literally goes right next to the building, and the river Spey runs 30 yards... More

Most previous reviews have pretty much said it all - this is a lovely establishment, full of character - we had the Macallan Room, with a nice coombed ceiling and a lovely bay window looking out onto the Spey. Nicely decorated and comfy beds. Food in the restaurant was excellent, breakfast great too with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and... More

We stayed at The Mash Tun 20/05/14 to 23/05/14 with friends (they made the booking). It was a good choice, spotlessly clean, very friendly accommodating staff, nothing was too much trouble. The food was very good, breakfasts were more than adequate, scrambled egg and smoked salmon was amazing! The bedroom had plenty of space, the shower room was small but... More

This place was truly an amazing experience. We came to Aberlour on the first stop of our honeymoon. I don't know where I mentioned to them that we were on our honeymoon, but when we checked in, they took us up to our room on the top floor, which was ready with a chilled bottle of champagne and two glasses....

Friendly, acceptably comfortable and very convenient for access to Aberlour and the vicinity. Very clean and has a decent breakfast. The staff recommended some lovely walks in the area. It's close to many of the Speyside distilleries and is walking distance from both Aberlour and Macallan. It has a great pub with good food and a fine selection of whiskeys... More

We spent four nights in the Glenlivet suite and could not be happier. The room is spacious and bright, overlooking the fast-flowing River Spey, the bathroom is large, there is plenty of choice at breakfast, and excellent dinners can be had if desired. Karen and all the staff are friendly and helpful, making this the ideal place from which to... More

We have stayed in The Mash Tun twice now and will certainly be returning again. Great experience, good food, good accommodation and great owners and staff. The rooms we stayed in were great, very clean and comfortable. We highly recommend The Mash Tun and we will be retuning.
