Really welcoming. Three nights, walking in between and everything I wanted and needed. Great bar, really good food. Friendly and cosy. Lovely separate family room suited us perfectly. Many thanks for a great stay.

We had an amazing 2 night stay and will be definitely going back. Food was fantastic, staff were incredibly helpful and feels like we were taken care of personally as if we had known them for years. Beautiful location for a hotel within easy walking distance of the town.

If you are expecting a Four Seasons, Ritz, or Hilton, then this is not the hotel for you. On the other hand, if you are looking for a warm, friendly, inviting family run bed-and-breakfast, then you would have trouble finding a better hotel anywhere in Scotland. We stayed there over the Highland games in 2016, and I cannot imagine a... More

A fine, well-situated, family-run hotel - only a short walk to the village centre. New owners working hard to deliver high quality accommodation and good service. Nice informal bar with real ales; delicious food prepared to order.

We had a very nice room overlooking the back garden. Grant, Maria, Martin and Helen were extremely friendly and made us most welcome. We had only booked one night but had to stay another as my husband 'put his back out', luckily our room was not booked! The owners were very concerned about him and offered all sorts of help....

Whilst not in the village centre nothing is far in Braemar. After a shaky check in the room was small but lovely furnishings. Recently refurbished. And the breakfast staff and breakfast were really grand.

Although we are staying elsewhere, my husband and I had dinner last night at Moorfield House's restaurant. It was the best meal we'd eaten all week!
