A typical "coach party" hotel. nothing really wrong, just the usual story ;" you get what you pay for" the hotel is very old fashioned, And although quite a bit of renovation has taken place recently, still needs a lot more. The more expensive rooms are excellent with 4 poster beds and en suite bathroom with bath and walk-in shower. The dining room is a little old fashioned and somewhat impersonal but this is countered by the efficiency and friendliness of all the staff. however the meals leave quite a bit to be desired- do not look for gourmet food!! you most certainly won't find it. eg. chefs special-- cottage pie! beef stew! chicken curry!?! a different choice? each evening. Porterage did not seem to be available so getting your luggage from car to room can be a bit of a struggle. the bar is modern and well stocked and the bar food seems to be superior to the dining room. Although most of the staff seem to be foreign they are all very pleasant and helpful. Braemar is a wonderful centre for walking and touring by car. Overall i would stay again at the Invercauld Arms.
