“Fantastic bed and breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

I stayed in the Conglass family room with my sister and father for one night during our road trip around Scotland. Mark and Val were perfect hosts, very welcoming, informative and professional. The room was spacious, comfortable, clean and modern, with a very nice bathroom. One of the highlights for us was the superb Scottish breakfast cooked by Mark. All of the ingredients were locally sourced and it was most definitely worth it since it was by far the best breakfast we had on our 10 day trip. Excellent value for money. We look forward to returning to Glentorets very soon.

We stayed here two nights, we love the family. They were so inviting and accommodating. The room was excellent and the food was made to order. They really made our stay better, by recommending walks, distilleries, shops and restaurants in the area. I fully recommend this B&B to any and all.

Stayed here for one night with my husband whilst walking the Speyside Way. Spotlessly clean and very friendly. Val and Mark pull out all the stops to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We didn't have an evening meal as they have only just started doing them but judging by the breakfasts I would imagine they are excellent. Lovely view from the window whilst having breakfast.

Thank you for your lovely review and we really appreciate your comments. It would be lovely if one day you could return to Glentorets to sample one of Mark's delicious evening meals all our guests who have had one have been very complimentary. We do try and make our Bed and Breakfast a home from home place for all our guests as this makes people feel welcome.

Stayed with Mark and Val for a couple of days in mid April and had a fantastic time. The house and the rooms are spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. You are made very welcome and the breakfast is a delight, especially the home-made bread. Tomintoul is a place where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of other, more touristy places and there are great hiking opportunities from the doorstep of this B&B. Mark and Val are a great source for tips and good hiking advice. Mark is a wildlife-photographer and his pictures give evidence of the wonderful wildlife around the area.

My wife and I spent a night here last week and were made most welcome by the hosts (and with cake)
The bedroom was spacious enough to accommodate a settee and an en suite bathroom with views that went on for miles!
Home made bread at breakfast was a pleasant surprise. I would have preferred to see the jams served in a dish and not in these small sealed catering containers, but that is a minor concern and one of my "pet hates". Great cooked breakfast

Room Tip: any room looking on to rear of property will have a great view

Thank you for the lovely review; we take your point about the jams - when we took over the business we did discuss this but in the interest of hygiene decided to use the portions; however upon your comments we will look to put out portions and also put some jars on the service counter with small dishes for guests to help themselves this way wastage should be avoided, health and safety issues kept to a minimum and importantly customers will have the choice.
