“New beginnings,and doing just fine”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

This visit was the first with the new owners, Allan and Beverley who are a lovely couple, they took the time to get to know their guests (not always found in a lot of b&b's) the bed was comfortable and the breakfast superb,I think the way things are going, and the hard work they are putting into the business,it will be pretty busy through out the year, so don't leave it too long to book, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All on the ground floor,all of them excellent.

this was my 3rd visit to Greenbrae but the first with the new owners. I was not disappointed. Guests rooms have been upgraded and tastefully decorated, Beverly & Alan were extremely good hosts - and the breakfasts were excellent. Highly recommend.

Beverly and Alan took great care of us while were at Greenbrae. They have recently bought the property, and have kept up the good service and comfort that I read in the reviews of the previous owners.

As Alan and Beverly have only been operating the B&B over the past few months, they are currently putting work into the outside of the 130-year old farmhouse, and have many plans for how to further develop the site. In the meantime, however, the inside of Greenbrae is already luxurious. We had a spacious double room, with a large dresser and cupboard. The bathroom had both a shower and a bathtub. The rooms are beautiful, and the bed was the most comfortable thing I have slept in for a long time.

We were well looked after, and felt like we were the only guests present, even when I knew there were other people around. With books, DVDs, and local area guides, Beverly and Alan want to make sure the guests have everything we need.

They have a few growing pains yet, for example, there may be workers around until the B&B is finished, although the noise was not too bad, Also, until Alan set up a booster for the internet, the wireless service was shaky. These are things, though, that will get sorted out as the B&B continues to operate.

Being a converted farmhouse, the B&B is in the middle of fields, very pleasant and quiet. A mile away in Longside is a bus stop with connections in Mintlaw to Peterhead and Aberdeen. If you do not mind a bit of walking, or if you are driving or on bicycles, Aberdeenshire is easily accessible from here. If you are on foot, there is also a small shop to buy food in Longside. Any restaurants or take-away places, though, are a bus ride away in Mintlaw.

I highly recommend Greenbrae, and will gladly stay there again the next time I am in the area.

We have stayed here several times on business in the last few months. The rooms have been done up recently and are spacious and comfortable, the owners are friendly and accommodating, and the breakfast is GREAT. Highly recommended.
