“Great stay at New Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We stayed for a night on New Year's Day when most places were closed. We were made very welcome. The room was superb and we liked the feel of the house: spacious and gracious. It was good value for money, too: much better all round than a hotel.

We have just returned from a 6 day trip to NE Scotland ( well worth it ) and stayed here for a couple of days, I cant thank Christine and Colin enough for a fantastic B and B, such a high standard, lovely room, beautiful en suite , comfy bed, and everything provided for you.
The breakfasts are very well cooked and generous portions ( cooked in an Aga, and i think you can tell )
The area is lovely, we ate each night in the local hotel, good food, not expensive ( The Knowes hotel )and toured all around the coast , what a lovely part of the world.

Room Tip: We had the white room, which was huge and beautifully decorated. ( Get Colin talking, he is a na...

The four of us stayed here whilst salmon fishing on the Deveron. Very clean and comfortable with good facilities, an excellent breakfast and packed lunch if you ask. Hosts very friendly and good value for money. Recommended. I only wish the Salmon had been as accommodating!

We rented two rooms for three nights - one couple and one senior. We wished we could have stayed longer, as theen-suite rooms were impeccably clean, spacious and the beds most comfortable. We felt totally at home and Christine, the host, was most froendly and informative. The breakfast set us up perfectly for the day. Small touches like bottles of water in the rooms and daily newspapers at breakfast made the stay. I highly recommend Mansefield House to anyone staying in the Banff area.

Fantastic bed and breakfast in Macduff, we stayed in the 'white' room for two nights and would definitely go back again. The room was so spacious and we felt just at home! Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was amazing, lots of space. There was two separate sinks, a huge bathtub and a spacious shower in our ensuite. The owner Christine is lovely and breakfast was great too. The morning papers were an added bonus! Tv has freeview, there were tea/coffee facilities and a hairdryer in the drawer, not to mention lots of storage space! Oh, and free wireless was helpful too. The decor throughout the whole b&b was clean, modern and up to date.

Don't miss out!

Everything about this place was spot on as soon as we walked through the door.
It was easy to find and centrally located but for people who cannot walk far or who use wheelchairs beware that Macduff is a very hilly town.
Our room waqs magnificent - four poster bed. Lovely tea making facility with splendid biccies, spotless linen, information booklets and a bathroom that really was fab. A double ended bath, his & hers sinks and a shower.
All very tastefully done and relaxing.
Breakfast was a joy. Locally sourced black pudding. Lots of care had gone into the cooking and the couple who run the place were charming. Wholly recommended!

Room Tip: Just ask the owners. Very obliging couple.
