“excellent people and accomadation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2011

i found that the Braehead was a superb place to stay with nice friendly people.I used it as a base for when i was travelling to and from work and was welcomed every time as a long lost friend.Do not hesitate to give them a ring for accomodation and good food,you will not be disappointed.I was working at the Whisky Distilleries around the area.

We stayed here for one night and found the place to be excellent. VERY friendly hosts and willing to go out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommended.

Adam and Liz was very friendly and we felt us warmly welcome. Bedroom as the bathroom were clean. Best of this place was conversation with this chararacter couple. And good hint where to go. Breakfast was tasty and offer good start to morning. Thank you Adam and Liz!

We have been travelling through Scotland for a fortnight and we loved it. Unfortunately, although Adam was really very friendly we have to say that the Braehaed Villa was the worst experience we made. The bathfloor was dirty, covered with dark hairs, the towels seemed not to be clean, the bedsheet, too. The room where our girls slept was ok. Well we managed it that night but were not hungry at all the next morning. Liz had a very bad morning. She did not greet friendly and looked at us as if we were her enemies. We did not eat the porridge and Liz shouted at us: what's wrong with the porridge? we said that we were not hungry and she told us next time not to order things that we do not eat up.
Dear Liz, probably you had a very bad night or day or whatever, this is not your guests' problem. We are a very nice family. We were kind to you. We did not complain about the lack of cleanliness because we stayed in Dufftown for one night. All we wanted was to be treated nicely.

This house offers us everything which we hope to find in a B&B: a warm welcome, a good breakfast, a cosy bedroom, people who like to have a talk with us. Thanks to the information Adam and Liz gave us, we had some exciting outings. The house is a good starting point for day trips in all directions. In the evening one can leave the car at the doorstep and walk to one of the restaurants nearby. Afterwards a spacious bedroom is waiting. Also the bathroom offers plenty of space for towels and toiletries.

Most of all we enjoyed the talks we had, sometimes about most interesting themes, sometimes full of humour.

We had a very friendly welcome and were surprised that rooms were that big and extra clean. We enjoyed Adam's tips about where to drive next day and where to eat as well as his samples of real scottish language, which was almost the same as our Swiss german dialect:-) . Would recommend to everybody who is not completely withdrawn. Breakfast was great and we loved the little town also. Eat at the family-run Mason Arms Pub on Conval Street (B9009), excellent food though smoky area (from the kitchen).
