"Pleasantly surprised with this accommodation as, having booked last minute I was getting an entry level room. Room was quite spacious, very clean and a big bathroom with lovely amenities. Staff were very friendly, in particular reception staff and the gentleman who manages the restaurant. We ate dinner in the restaurant and the food was outstanding- best we have had since arriving in the UK 3 weeks ago. Breakfast was also delicious- fresh fruit & yoghurt followed by smashed avocado & poached eggs. Ballater is a lovely town for walks, bike riding and enjoying the scenery."
