The Mountview Hotel is owned by Heatherlea birdwatching and specialises in birdwatching trips. I was there as one of those organised trips.
The location of the hotel, on top of the hill, as the name suggests affords fantastic views of the mountains. The building is beautifully Victorian in its build with some of the lovely old Victorian features retained. The bar and restaurant area, which is open to non residents, is small and well decorated. The bar does not serve draught beer but instead specialises in local bottled beers which I have to say were very good.
I had the downstairs bedroom as I had a mobility problem at the time of the visit. It was clean, tidy with a good quality bed. The en-suite shower room and toilet were perfectly adequate.
The food was absolutely fantastic! Great breakfast selection. Always a vegetarian option and fantastic portions. They certainly make sure you don't go hungry on the birding outings either with great packed lunches and snacks and tea and coffee when you stop.
All the staff, without exception, were fantastic. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
I thoroughly enjoyed my weeks stay at the mountview and have no qualms about recommending it here.
Birdwatchers or not, you will have a great stay at this lovely hotel in the beautiful Cairngorms national park.
