“Wonderful Ballater experience.”
Reviewed January 14, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

An extremely comfortable apartment with everything in it to suit your needs during your stay. It was clean and fresh and beautifully furnished. We were warm and cosy despite it being -7 outside.
Though we know Ballater quite well, this was the first time in this apartment, and would definitely go back.

We stayed for 6 nights in this absolutely lovely apartment. The side door opens onto the garden overlooking the River Dee. The owners have thought of everything - it is spacious, light, airy and very comfortable.
We had a great time walkng around Loch Muick ( a must do), visiting Balmoral, having a ginger and apple scone (yum!) and coffee at Rocksalt and Snails and much more.
I highly recommend it!

“A quality accommodation”

We stayed in Ballater for 3 nights and were delighted with the apartment - well appointed throughout and to a high standard and centrally located in Balloter just by the river. It was particularly pleasing having had one or two disappointing holiday rentals recently. Bruce was most helpful and met us on arrival.
We were fortunate to have great weather including a cloudless sky at the top of Lochnagar with superb visibility.

“Location, location, location!”

Ballater has long been one of our favourite places, somewhere between a village and a town, it's almost like a throwback to days gone by.

Set on the River Dee (sadly the source of much devastation by flooding at the end of December 2015) Ballater lies close to Braemar and Balmoral. Monaltrie House was once a hotel before conversion to apartments, and this particular apartment must be the best in the building.

With direct access to the grounds and right by the side of the river, the location is quite superb - the location is matched by the quality of the accommodation. The apartment is beautifully furnished in a very tasteful manner and is equipped also to a high standard. with all modern facilities including free Wi Fi.

Really this is what rental properties should all be like, thoroughly recommended.

We stayed for 4 nights in Ballater in the apartment and cannot praise the owner enough for such a beautifully appointed flat - it had everything needed to make a comfortable break and it was furnished to a very high standard and so clean! Ballater is a brilliant base and the surrounding countryside is beautiful, the town itself has all you need - supermarket, restaurants, tea shops and gift shops. We definitely hope to return.

Apartment is fully equipped; there is absolutely everything in the cupboard from spices to rice, it feels like you don't have to bring your own food:D It is furnished to high standards, the decor is very homie feely like. Nothing better than watching rough river bursting through its banks while enjoying a cup of freshly made coffee every morning. It was a fantastic stay in a lovely place. I would definitely come back and stay here again.
