After getting trapped in tomintoul due to the snow we came across this lovely little B&B. The owners were very welcoming and the room was perfect for an over night stay. The breakfast was lovely and the owner helped us find an alternative way to our final destination through the snow. Couldn't have been any nicer. I highly recommend this... More

Bathroom was huge with a good shower and plenty of warm water. Breakfast was just fabulous, lots of choices and all topped with home baked warm bread. Delicious!! There was a nice walk with... More

Tomintoul is growing as a destination and i was back again, things keep getting better. The Argyle is a warm place to stay with a very friendly welcome from Steve & Diane. They are used to catering form business travellers, contractors, walkers, cyclists or sportsmen, and offer the same warm welcome to all. Rooms basic, but clean with good TV... More

We were put into the large room at the back, which we were not aware existed. Ground floor at the crossing, not especially welcoming. It has three beds, which was two more than we needed, but at least it has space and is en-suite. Breakfast Porridge very rich, only managed half!

I found the room temperature quite warm but such is life.Shared bathrrom was not a problem. Breakfast is at a set time and comes out at that time. You preorder it the night... More

A homely b&b with character, creaking floors, shared bathroom and small room with a soft bed. No luxuries here but it is a country town and your expectations should not be high. Breakfast was preordered and delivered to a set time which was fine by me. Happy to recommend for short stays.

This is NOT your 5 star resort, but it IS the best of the kind for B & B's. Steven and Diane run a clean, fun, comfortable B & B that has it all. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, great food (more on that in a minute) and a wonderful location. All that with perfect service! We stayed a week, because... More

We were very comfortable for the night we were here and had a nice rest. Breakfast was lovely and cooked to order.... More
