Friendly atmosphere. Good food and beer. I will go again. Views and surrounding area are spectacular. Clean fresh air outside which is good for cleansing the lungs. A burbling brook near to the front of the pub just adds to the ambience
Situated in a dream position on the Highland Road the A939 between Tomintoul & Ballater, near the Lecht Ski Centre. Magnificent scenery, forget the A9 this is proper Scotland.A great welcome, fabulous menu all home cooked by a great chef. Friendly , welcoming sociable evening with plenty of chat & good bar.Recommend the Gaelic coffee with local whisky. Rooms fine....
Great location and the food is very good. Good selection of beers and a brilliant view.Owner is very friendly.We didn't stay overnight but would certainly recommend it for a meal and a few pints Very pleased we stopped.
Although it's been a good few years since I was here last, the ownership changes frequently, the food was gorgeous! It was still as warm and snug as I remember it but with a few new and modern touches to the actual room where you dine which is nice.
The staff there were exceptional and made us feel very welcome...
We have been here in the past when different owners had it.
A much better improvement on then.
The food is excellent and if not staying at the hotel it's a lovely drive to.
Great staff and Chef thank you visit Scotland need to come to you.

We stopped for a drink as we were driving in our camper in the Highlands and ended up staying for the evening and a delicious dinner. It was the Scotland and night we were looking for. Euan was great and made us feel very welcome. We had a very funny and entertaining evening. Went back for breakfast the next morning...
After a long, but enjoyable drive and a busy day we arrived at the hotel. First impressions weren't great - a rusty BBQ outside and a blue corrugated entrance porch. It needs a little TLC and external investment!
The welcome was friendly and helpful and the staff were very accommodating. The double room was clean and had a good ensuite....
