For the price of this location I had higher expectations. Rooms were clean but beds were very uncomfortable. Absolutely no help from the host once you are checked in, until you want to pay your bill. Was shocked to see that many items are add on costs for the breakfast, which was not overly impressive in itself. The host even closed the restaurant on a Saturday night, when most restaurants in the area were fully booked due to a marathon in the area. I would not recommend staying here .

Amazing stay at Tannochbrae, room was warm and comfortable, we definitely looked forward to returning “home” everyday! Breakfast spread was generous and filling, staff were friendly and other guests too! Would definitely love to be back again! :)

You can find Tannochbrae Guest House in the centre of Dufftown, the capital of single malts ;-)
Dufftown is a small village but close to all kind of distilleries and the Speyside Cooperage.
We had a small room with a small bathroom. Big enough for us because we had the luck that we had one smaller suitcase :-D
Downstairs is a separate (big) lounge room for the guests.

The breakfast room was cosy and the breakfast really well. You can choose from different breakfasts.
The best thing of Tannochbrae is the whisky-bar (really small!) with 350 single malts and a separate bar lounge room. We loved that!

James and Louise are the most skilled innkeepers we’ve met in a long time. They really know how to provide the full holiday experience for their guests. No request goes unmet. They make you feel like family visiting on holiday. The food is delicious. The rooms are spacious and homey. The location is perfect for distillery touring in Speyside or walking to Balvenie Castle through the Dufftown woods to see the hairy coos.

Lots of positives but I just couldn't bring myself to give 4 rating. Hopefully I can be constructive....


Great staff- without exception
Cleanliness- Room was spotless
Breakfast- Delicious (but only served between 8-9)
WiFi- Fast and reliable

Improvements needed:

Check in times - Only allowed to check in between 1630-1800 ??
Restaurant- I booked here because restaurant looked great but it was closed. Weekday in August when Guesthouse is full and you close restaurant?
Room Decor - Needs an update!

For over £100 a night I just expected more. Bathroom toiletries were cheap, biscuits in room were cheap... just doesn't match quality of the establishment.
