Details had been considered like having fresh milk in the room with the tea & coffee making facilities. The owners cater well for cyclists and were exceptionally helpful when I had a... More

Loved out stay here! Great location with good parking right across the street. Great breakfast. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Room clean and comfortable. Remember these are old buildings but well maintained. Everything in town is a short walk away.

The rooms are very spacious and clean. Breakfast is delicious and very nicely presented. The owners are really friendly and helpful! Tomintoul is a very small village and if I ever go back, I'd definitely stay at Argyle guest house!

Diane is a wonderful hostess. We had a houseful of Equitour riders, and she made us all comfortble, helped with every detail. Steve is an amazing chef and we ate some of the best food ever. Tomintoul is a wonderful little hamlet, great little shops and great stories from South Africa. Thank you!!!! Cyndie and Mary Ann

We chose to stay at the Argyle just for a couple of nights as we were catching up with some old friends who live locally. We were made so welcome by Diane and Steve. The room was lovely, very large comfortable bed and an en-suite as well. It has a lovely quiet ambiance which is just how we like it.... More

What a warm welcome from Granny D. ! We enjoyed the family ensuite room - we were like at home, the breakfast - so good, the advises regarding children activities, the peaceful atmosphere. This guest house is ideally located in the middle of Cairngorms.

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.

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
