Reviewed August 22, 2013

The amazing and personal welcome and treatment that we had from Val and Mark gave us the feeling that we were at home. We had a great time watching the highland games and enjoying the extremely good weather. The topping of the cake was coming to the Glentorets at the end of the day and enjoy the hospitality and a perfect breakfast in the morning.

Val and Mark thank you for our great stay

PS. we hope you enjoyed the belgium beer Mark ;-)

We stayed one night at Glentorets on our way to Aviemore. We felt very welcome all the time. The room was very clean and comfortable with a great view, complementary coffee, tea and cookies.
The breakfast was excellent - very tasty and you can choose from a wide menu (Salmon, Haggis, fruit salad, ..). Val & Mark gave us a lot of information and tips for our follow-up journey. We will definitely come back!!

We (family of four) stayed at Glentorets in the Conglass room for 5 nights at the beginning of August for 5 nights using it as a base for our holiday in the highlands.
The B&B: Val & Mark made sure that we felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. The family room was very comfortable meeting our needs entirely. Val needn't worry at all that it feels cramped, there is plenty of room, very comfortable & we all slept very soundly. Breakfast was very tasty, generous and there was a good menu from which to select (a wider choice than @ home :-) )
The facilities are great & Val & Mark go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your stay both at Glentorets & further afield giving good 'tourist info' 're places to visit.
The location: Glentorets is lovely & peaceful being just a little 'away from it all' at the edge of the village but within easy walking distance of both the centre of the village - which is itself 'away from it all' & good walking country. Tomintoul is a great location for exploring the mountains, locks & blend of the Cairngorms but also for the Moray Coast. We seemed to be able to pack loads into our visit, never having visited before, & loved Lossiemouth, Findhorn, the Culbin Forest, Cairn Gorm & the funicular railway, Loch Insh....... Highlight of our visit - seeing the young Ospreys fleshing by Loch Insh.
We would strongly recommend Glentorets if you are considering staying in the Cairngorms and hope to be back sometime in the future. Here's to Glentorets 2, 3 & 4 :-)

Thank you so much Steve for your very kind review and taking the time to write one for Glentorets B&B. We very much enjoyed you and your lovely family staying with us it was great to chat with you all and find out each day what you have been doing during your stay, It is great to see guests make the most of their holiday in the Scottish Highlands there is plenty to occupy you all, as you found out, during your 5 day stay with us and within easy reach of Tomintoul too. As you so rightly mentioned you still did not manage to fit everything you wanted to do into your stay here so it would be lovely to see you all again in the future.
We are really pleased that you found the family room comfortable and spacious and also that you enjoyed the variety of breakfasts each morning.
We hope that you had a lovely stay in York on your journey back and arrived back home safely. Take care all of you. Val, Mark & Elliott

The place is very clean and there is much personal touch and attention. They communicated with me prior to my arrival to advise us on the checking time and the places for dinner. Vale was also very helpful and meticulous. Vale recommended trails to try and put a lot of care in our breakfast with a variety of choices. There is much wildlife in the area as can be seen from the various photographs of birds and butterflies taken by Mark. It is not far from a few famous distilleries and is a good place to stay for a night after visiting the distilleries.

I stayed at Glentorets with my husband for 4 days. Our room was quiet, very comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was excellent. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Val and Mark. Their B&B is a quality establishment. We will definitely return.

Accommodation very well looked after / spotless. Breakfast was great and Val/Mark very welcoming. I had a great view and a great room (twin room for me). I would definitely stay here again when back in the area...

Room Tip: I had the twin room which was great for me with a super view.

Six of us stayed here on a weekend cycling trip. Comfortable rooms, great food and wonderful hospitality. Val and Mark attended to our every need, even lending me a pair of trainers to walk to the pub because my shoes were wet. Brilliant living room with giant tv for guests who want to chillax too. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: One of the three rooms is en suite, the other two share a (spacious) bathroom.

Thank you Jillian for your wonderful review it was a pleasure having you all to stay you were all good fun to have at Glentorets and it would be great to have you all stay again in the future. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your cycle ride and we would like to wish you the very best in Italy next month. The loan of the shoes was not a problem at least you could go to the pub feeling comfortable and dry and enjoy yourself. We are pleased that you all enjoyed your evening meal at Glentorets, Mark's Thai Curry is a definite winner it goes down well with our guests who have ordered it in the past. We will place a copy of the photograph of you all on our website in our guest gallery, if you have a chance please take a look in the next few days.
