The Guesthouse Willow Bank is without doubt the most pleasant place where we stopped, with my wife and four American friends, for one night during our recent long trip to Scotland. The village and countryside are magnificent, the accommodation and breakfast (included in the total price of £ 90 for two) are exceptional in cleanliness, quality and service. More than anything else I was moved by the constant availability and discretion of the managers. Thanks to them, from the heart !! Andrea Breda (Brescia - Italy)
Jan and Janny are very welcoming hosts and the accommodation is extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean . Delicious breakfasts with lots of choice eaten in a very pleasant conservatory at the front of the property Grantown has a variety of pubs and restaurants for evening meals The hosts are most helpful sharing local knowledge about walks and places of interest . We had a wonderful week exploring the area - Thank you .
Very good Guesthouse in the middle of the whisky trail and castles. Very warm and friendly welcoming by the Dutch owners. Nice comfortable room with en-suite. Breakfast is superb, choices enough and freshly made. It was excellent.
Arrived at 2.40pm, wasn’t allowed in to use toilets in our rooms, was told to find public toilets in town after a 4 hr drive. Owner was not friendly, check-in is between 4 -7pm we had 2 double rooms booked, sign outside said they still had vacancies. Cancelled and found alternative accommodation but were still charged the full amount for 2 rooms £180, even though we were never over their door. Wouldn’t recommend.
We had a lovely stay at The Willowbank on our Speyside Way walking holiday. The owners were very friendly and welcoming upon our arrival. Our room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. We would certainly go back and recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Grantown!
We visited on our cycling trip around the highlands and Willowbank was our first stop. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating and made us feel at home. The room was very comfortable and I got a great night's sleep. The breakfast was really good as well and is situated in a lovely conservatory. Thank you for a lovely stay.
We booked a comfort room it was spacious absolutely spotless and the most comfortable bed .The hosts were delightful and we felt safe with their COVID protocol. We picked what we wanted for breakfast from a checklist and WhatsApp it to the owners and we were given a timeslot. The Breakfast was amazing freshly cooked with good quality ingredients. We would recommend Willowbank to everybody. The location is good as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Clean, comfortable, tasty breakfast with many choices and sufficient to set us up for our day’s cycling. Jan & Janny are friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble for them. We were caught in the rain and got soaked and they offered to dry our jackets and they were ready to wear again the next morning.
Jan and Jenny were wonderful hosts and the guest house was excellent. Room was comfortable and breakfast was lovely. Great value for money. I thought you only had to write 100 characters. Has it recently gone up to 200?
The communication, helpfulness and friendliness of the hosts was vey much appreciated. The guesthouse is well placed for exploring the Cairngorms, the Glenlivet Estates, and the local area. We did many walks and cycling from here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Willowbank was very clean and the adoptive manner to meet covid requirements was well implemented and very innovative. Times to return to the room were restricted to help with sanitisation, however this should not be ignored and seen as a positive measure during the current situation. The room (we had an upgrade thank you), was spacious and the bed was very comfy. We found that the breakfast served here was probably the best of our holiday, thank you. We would highly recommend and will try to return when we can; it is a great place to stay and you know you are going to leave well nourished for the days activities. Many items have been removed from rooms to assist with sanitisation and ease of cleaning. Parking is available on site, even if you have you to navigate the narrowest entry to gain access. The owners were perfect hosts and we enjoyed our stay.…
