Before we even arrived at Castleview B&B we knew we would have a great stay. Ian provided so much information via email, made our dinner reservation, and arranged taxis for all of our outings. We didn't get to meet Ian as he was away during our visit; however, his wife Betty was a perfect hostess. She cooked our dinner (vegan for me!) the night we arrived, made our breakfasts, gave us excellent tips for walking from Aberlour to Craigellachie to Dufftown, and she even left a birthday card in our room for my husband who was celebrating his 40th birthday while we were there!
The room was cozy. The decor is a little dated, it just adds to the charm of the place. The shower was hot with good water pressure -this is important when you're out in chilly and drizzly weather.
The location was a bit outside of town, but that was fine...and the town itself isn't that great, anyway.
Castleview B&B is a great place to stay when you're in whisky country.
