We stayed for 3 nights as part of a few days walking in nearby Glenshee and Lochnagar. After a tough day of munro bagging in torrential rain, we were drenched right through to the skin. I asked the owner if they had a drying room and she very kindly said she would put our wet dirty gear into the washing machine and tumble dry in readiness for our next walk the following day.
The rooms and beds were very comfortable and the nicely appointed bathroom and shower was just what the Doctor ordered after a tought day hiking.
The food was fantastic and of excellent quality. Very good portions washed down with a couple of local beers in the comfortable and homely bar was just great. All provided with a smile and friendly chat from the lovely family that own the hotel.
Breakfast too was of a similar standard you would get at many of Scotland's 4 or 5 star hotels. We will be back.
