We, as a group of 4, spent two days over New Year in this very comfortable appartment. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms good sized. Making meals for four in the kitchen was made much easier (so I'm told) with a well equipped and laid out kitchen. The price, especially at New Year, was very good value.

This apartment was very comfortable and Teresa had provided us with everything we could have needed. We even had little chocolates on our beds when we arrived. Communication in the lead up to our stay was excellent. The location is spectacular and within easy reach of Stonehaven by car.

Management response:

Thank you for your recent stay at The Castle Stables. We are very pleased to hear that you appreciate the effort we put in our business. We hope to welcome you again and wish you a Happy New Year for 2016!

The key word here is picturesque. Wonderful apartment in a beautifully scenic location, with more extras than you can shake a stick at (e.g. each person is provided with their own personal toiletries set, and not forgetting Scottish shortbread and chocolate Celebrations). The owner is really friendly and helpful.
