Where do you start to review a place that was just fantastic in every aspect. Let’s start with the owners, Gary and Nigel, there attention to detail is second to none, what a beautiful, clean, warm and welcoming guest house, nothing is to much trouble for them. Breakfast was amazing and everything is cooked fresh to order. The guest house is in a great location, very central with easy access to loads of attractions ( try the snow trails, stunning scenery and Braemar was beautiful, wish we’d carried on to Ballater) Lovely restaurants within walking distance. We had the most enjoyable stay and will definitely be visiting Ivybank Lodge again

We booked Ivybank Lodge based on the Trip Advisor reviews. So pleased that we did. We can only reiterate the previous comments. Very tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and very friendly hosts in Nigel and Gary. We intended playing golf on the day following our arrival, but were a bit apprehensive as we arrived on a very wet day. However, Nigel promised us that the sun would shine, and it certainly did. How's that for service!! We will definitely return.

Room tip: We stayed in Edradour, but would imagine all rooms are immaculate.

A 2 night stay in what I can only say was total luxury . Met at the door with the warmest of greetings by hosts Nigel and Gary we were shown to our Superior Superking room . Quite frankly I was speechless when we were shown around ,the decor ,furniture and finish was beyond what I could ever have expected .If I thought the quality of the room was the pinnacle of our visit , the quality of the breakfast and choices were equally as impressive . Ivybank Lodge take B&B to a new level and without doubt deserves the highest of ratings .

Room tip: All rooms are of the highest Quality

I wish we lived closer. In Ivybank. Gary and Nigel provided the perfect stopping point on our route to the NC500. Fabulous 4-poster room, with wonderful walk-in shower. Attention to detail is 100%. Spotlessly clean, and great little touches (coffee machine, chocolates, etc). Breakfast (porridge and full Scottish, see photos) cooked to order and very, very tasty. We had a nice chat with the hosts before we left, and they were genuinely interested in our NC500 plans, and the "Snow Road" through and past Braemar. Such great value too, we will stop here again if the opportunity avails!
