“Great place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Great place to stay after snowboarding at The Lecht! Welcomed by the owners, we felt right at home from the minute we walked in through the door. The spacious bathroom was especially welcome as we all needed a long soak. Breakfast was really good too!

Had a wonderful stay at this B&B. The town is really just the main street but a few choices for eating, The Whiskey Castle and this B&B made it a very comfortable place to stay. The breakfasts were amazing. Four choices and all wonderfully prepared.

From the beginning of our overnight stay in Tomintoul at the Argyle Guest House, Diane (the propietor) gave us a very warm welcome. She offered great conversation and recommendations. We very much enjoyed our time here. Thank you for the great accommodation and perfect Full Scottish Breakfast.

Highly recommended.

Argyle Guest House is a good place to stay; friendly hosts, excellent breakfast, right on the main street. I would recommend it to anyone. However, be sure to ask for an "en suite" room or you might end up sharing a bathroom. Very clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for "en suite". Some of their rooms have to share a bath.

A BIG THANK YOU. to Dianne and her ladies for making our stay at Argyle House a memorable and restful experience. Four of us middle aged Aussies stayed at a variety of accommodation during our motoring tour of Scotland late August 2012. We drove into Tomintoul very late on the 28th, called in to visit Mike at Whisky Castle for a tasting of his very fine dram and forgot the time, Mike called Dianne two doors down at about 5.30pm and two rooms at Argyle House were ready by the time we walked past two doors, absolutely spotless rooms with ensuite, a welcoming smile upon arrival, freshly baked home made country loaf, local jams, and fantastic fresh country eggs benedict for breakfas next morning, we were even contemplating staying an extra night, but the many distilleries yet to visit won out. will certainly be returning to Argyle House when next in Scotland. Thanks again Dianne. Regards, The Aussies.

Room Tip: Our room was overlooking the main road of Tomintoul, we slepped with the window open as we usually d...

I enjoyed my stay in The Argyle Guest house a lot. Extremely friendly and helpful owners - Dianne and Steven, big and tasty breakfasts, lovely decorated and very clean rooms (I stayed for 2 nights and every night I had to spend in different room so I had a chance to check two rooms :))) Can't be better :) Highly recommended!

I must admit I only really submit reviews to trip advisor when I find somewhere particularly good or particularly bad. The Argyle Guest house was particularly good.

Great, clean, spacious room. Lovely breakfast, with plenty of choice and really nice, chatty, interesting, helpful hosts.
