I ate at the Alexandra Hotel with a group of 6 other cyclists after we had ridden 100 miles in the Etape Royale. I called ahead to make a reservation as i knew Ballater would be busy. We only ate in the restaurant, which was classy and clean. The staff were friendly and took our orders as soon as we...

Stopped for a night after an exhausting journey travelling the Highlands. The ladies were really welcoming, smiley and helpful. Had dinner in the restaurant and we all loved the steaks and pies! Very comfy beds and clean rooms. Loved the detail of the dressing table! I would definitely go back!

Stopped in for evening meal while in Ballater for an evening concert. Great pub grub, freshly prepared with top notch ingredients and nicely presented. Totally attentive staff, lovely bright clean surroundings. Spotless toilets, well stocked bar and packed with customers 10/10. Nice to see Ballater rising again from the floodwaters. May the Scottish Government put a flood prevention budget in...

While staying with family in the local area my husband and I went for a meal here. It was about our 3rd or 4th visit and every time the food has tasted and looked fantastic, the prices have been reasonable and the service has been excellent. I would strongly recommend the food and if the hotel stays are as good...

Our stay at the Alex came as a complete surprise as we hadn’t planned on going to Ballater for another 3 months but the unexpected death of my brother in law changed all that. I found myself frantically searching the net for accommodation which was scarce due to the number of tradesmen occupying most of the accommodation whilst rebuilding and...

Was in this restaurant about two weeks for an evening meal. We had booked an early meal and had a seat by the window in restaurant. The service was fast but not rushed and served by friendly staff. Food was excellent, we both had fish and chips and the chips was the best we had tasted in a long time,...

I stayed at the Alex for two nights on a winter walking trip with friends from work at the beginning of December 2015. We booked two twin rooms which were comfortable and clean. We were greeted by extremely friendly staff and the friendly vibe of the place continued throughout the stay. We had a few drinks in the bar on...

Yes, this is a splendid place to visit. A friendly small family hotel where I appreciated the well-kept real ales and a high standard of pub food. The newish owners deserve our support; you will not be disappointed.

Friendly and helpful staff, great food, real ale, and plenty hot water for a soak after along day bagging Munros. The rooms were clean and have recently been redecorated. The town its self has a selection of takeaways and restaurants and a few more bars. The full Scottish breakfast is more than enough fuel for a days walking, but the...
