Excellent hosts, they couldn't do enough for us. The hotel is so relaxing and very dog friendly. The rooms are immaculate and the breakfast was out of this world. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough. We will be back again next year.

We booked this very last minute as wanted a change of scenery for the last night of our honeymoon. We had the Ballindalloch room. The hotel was stunning, very clean and super comfy. The host, Ian, was friendly and polite. Our room was large and had a large jacuzzi bath (that fits two!) The breakfast was delicious and well catered for GF and DF. We are very happy we booked it and would definitely return in the future.

Great host, warm inviting coutry house. Bedroom was nicely sized with tea/coffee and a good sixed bathroom with shower. Downstairs was a very welcoming lounge area, the breakfast/afternoon tea room was quaint and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for the host which makes this a great place to stay!

We stayed at Tigh na Sgiath as part of our honeymoon and enjoyed every minute of our stay! The owners do an amazing job running this hotel. Iain is very welcoming and friendly, full of tips and advice on where to go in the local area. Nothing was too much trouble and he also immediately alerted us to some items we had left behind after checking out. We stayed in Speanoch. The room is very nicely furnished, in keeping with the style of the house. The tea tray was great and we appreciated the fresh milk kept in a fridge nearby. The view was of a feeder and we saw red squirrels both mornings! The star of the room is the luxury bathroom - it's almost as big as the room! There is a large walk in shower and then a Bette hydrobath with a TV in the wall. The bath is big enough for two and has plenty of hot water. We also appreciated the luxury toiletries. Breakfast is amazing - great quality, very tasty, and served with a smile. The drawing room is open to guests and is a lovely space to relax in. We were very sad to leave and can't wait to come back!

Thank you both for submitting your lovely review and the photograph of your bathroom in Speanoch! It was lovely that you spotted the Red Squirrels which you had been hopeful of seeing during your stay - we also now have a family of Roe Deer - a Mother and her 2 calves who are favouring the Tigh na Sgiath garden - hopefully next time you visit they will still be here! Thanks again.

This property is beautifully presented and very comfortable. Our room was large and had plenty of space. Our host, Lain, was very engaging and made us feel at home. The breakfast was fantastic. Our only regard was that we didn’t stay longer.

1st class, value for money, highly attentive owner/hosts, nothing is too much trouble. This is a fine example of a Husband & wife team that have benefitted from a career in hospitality and bring to this venture all those years of experience. Attention to detail is apparent in all areas of the Hotel, and guests are treated to an extensive knowledge of the Cairngorms area by the owners, who are more than willing to book tables in restaurants on your behalf, squeezing you in even when they are full on account of their well established relationships in the wider community! Great whiskey selection, and a super breakfast, with a wide choice for guests. You do have to choose your breakfast the night before which is never ideal, but in reality this actually works quite well. There are attractive short walks from the Hotel, and the Library is well stocked with maps, of the Cairngorms and wider Scotland. Anyone touring this part of Scotland should add this Hotel to their itinerary, its a memorable experience for all the right reasons. Highly recommended.

Fantastic weekend away, both Iain + Elaine were both so welcoming and nothing was ever too much trouble. Beautiful location with lots of walking trails nearby. Our room was spacious and very clean with no faults. Would highly recommend the afternoon tea and the breakfast was delicious. Thank you again Iain + Elaine - we’ll be back.

This was my second visit to this lovely hotel and it was just as lovely as the first time. So welcoming and friendly and the breakfasts are great - freshly cooked to order from a great choice. This time I also had the Afternoon Tea which didn’t disappoint - I couldn’t finish it either. My room was spacious and comfortable, with great views. I hope I’ll go back again.
