We had a very nice room overlooking the back garden. Grant, Maria, Martin and Helen were extremely friendly and made us most welcome. We had only booked one night but had to stay another as my husband 'put his back out', luckily our room was not booked! The owners were very concerned about him and offered all sorts of help....

Whilst not in the village centre nothing is far in Braemar. After a shaky check in the room was small but lovely furnishings. Recently refurbished. And the breakfast staff and breakfast were really grand.

Although we are staying elsewhere, my husband and I had dinner last night at Moorfield House's restaurant. It was the best meal we'd eaten all week! I had grilled salmon ; he had a ribeye; both were cooked to perfection. And best of all, they were served with some real vegetables, not just the ubiquitous chips! Okay, his steak came... More

We stayed one night, very friendly owners. The hotel is under new management, so I think they are still finding thier feet. Our room was fine, small, with a little bathroom the bed was a bit creaky. But for one night it was fine. We ate in the resturant, food was good, and very reasonable. Breakfast was good not greasy... More

This small hotel is a gem. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. It has a very small bar that opens at 4pm and so you can meet some of the locals who come and then have dinner from a menu where fresh features strongly. It is quite close to the small town centre and there are several short walks in... More

We arrived in time for drinks & a wonderful cheese plate in the bar. The room was very comfortable, as was the bath. Breakfast was tasty. Our hosts were warm & welcoming, very helpful. We received some good advice on nearby attractions.

Had a meal here, with friends, for our 33rd anniversary. Before booking we went for a drink in the bar the day before and were made most welcome my Martin. We were confident in booking when he explained that there would a delay in serving because all the food is cooked from fresh and not reheated. We were not disappointed... More
