Having a lovely stay here. We are in the annexe room and it is lovely and large. It is warm and comfortable as it is a bit chilly outside. Very clean and the beds are very comfortable. Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow. The lady of the guest house was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for the first night of our Inverness to Montrose cycle ride. Diane and Steve run a fabulous guest house which has comfortable beds, is clean, homely and offers a great breakfast - Steve's porridge set us up for the next leg of our trip. As well as providing local info for reastaurants etc Diane provided some anti-inflamitory... More

I stayed here whilst working in Scotland, it's got everything you expect from a b&b, warm, comfortable with good wifi I might add!! I stayed in room 6 which had twin beds, it did say twin/double, then on to say my room had a double bed with en suite when I booked which was disappointing when I saw the two... More

This was a beautiful place to stay, very relaxing and friendly. The owner made a big effort to make sure we were well cared for. Breakfasts were really very good, with a good amount of choice on the menu, and freshly baked bread, and good quality food (especially the smoked salmon!). We appreciated the information provided on the local area,... More

Sorry Diane. You made us very welcome and the room was lovely but the breakfast was really horrible. The fruit compote seemed past its best, the parma ham likewise, and not everyone likes a choice of white soda bread or nothing (no toast). Eggs Benedict with salad cream???

We have just returned home after a 1 night stay at Argyle House and could find no fault at all with this lovely bed and breakfast. Diane made us feel very welcome, the rooms were spacious and spotless and the breakfast was delicious especially the warm home made bread. We would certainly not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to anyone... More

We were planning a visit to the Glenlivet Distillery, and came across this lovely B&B in Tomintoul, which is only 8 miles away. We were not disappointed, Steve and Dianne were great hosts. The rooms were comfortable and clean, and the breakfasts wonderful, with a great choice. The porridge was the best I have ever had. All the other guests... More

Stayed here for one night in this quiet little town with nature close by. Went out for a relaxing jog that would have calmed the most stressful mind. The room was nice and the breakfast was great. Diane was a wonderful hostess!

Steve & Diane were amazing hosts. We unfortunately were running late after the scheduled time and felt very bad about it, but Diane was very accomodating and kind enough to stay up to meet us. In the morning, the breakfast was fantastic with fresh Scottish salmon & eggs, home-baked bread, fruit & yogurt, and juice. Diane gave us great advice... More

This is our second visit to the Argyle Guest House. It was as warm and friendly as our last visit. Diane and Steve are fantastic hosts and they are very accommodating. The breakfast is excellent. This establishment is highly recommended.
