I spent 7 nights at the Mountview hotel an Edwardian country house in times gone by. I was on a birdwatching week with Heatherlea who are based in this hotel. Very comfortable room, great bed , plenty of hot water and heating system very good. Food throughout the week was very good , breakfast particularly so. Nice lounge ,comfortable seating , log fire. Good selection of malt whisky and local beer. There are glorious views of 3 mountain ranges including the peaks of Cairn Gorm and Bynack More. The River Nethy is just 200 metres away. The hotel has a bird feeding station where we saw Crested Tit , Sparrowhawk , coal tits and Goldfinches. The birdwatching was fantastic , 92 species in 6 days , highlights were Golden Eagle, Capercallie , Created tit, Whitetailed Eagle and Black Grouse at a lek. This hotel and the bird watching highly recommended.

We always visit here, quite a quaint little place that you might miss if you didn’t know it was here. They are a key venue for birdwatchers but joe public can eat, drink and stay here too! It’s very cosy on cold nights with an excellent selection of fresh local food. The service is always very good and friendly!

Lovely location and the restaurant had a very inviting atmosphere. Our waitress was very welcoming and helpful as was the chef.. The menu offered a nice range of dishes and it was hard to decide what to choose. The food was delicious. On our next trip to Scotland we will definitely eat here again.

Just returned from an amazing trip with guide Mark. The whole process from booking to leavening was excellent. Jolene in the office was really helpful arranging extra nights before and after trip. Mark was an awesome, knowledgable guide and shared a wealth of information with us. We saw everything and more we wished for and the experience was unbelievable. Hotels and meals were fantastic and Skye a memorable place. We will be visiting Heatherlea tours again and really hope Mark will be our guide!

The staff were very friendly the room very comfortable. The evening meal was very good, but surpassed by the excellent breakfast. The only gripe was the shower - it seemed to alternate between scalding and freezing every 30 seconds. I should have said something but I was exhausted after a long day and had a snooze before dinner instead. When I woke up I had forgotten about it and only remembered now when writing review. Oh, and there was little hassle when it came to paying - something to do with debit vs credit cards and the card machine they have. Hence very good, not excellent.

Eight of us visited for a family gathering and evening meal. The staff coped wonderfully with the eight more mature persons who all wanted different drinks and we were amazed at their knowledge. The ordering of the meal was easier as 6 had twice baked souffle which I gather was excellent the other two had different starters. Steak cooked to taste for 5 of the company, rump of lamb and chicken schnitzel for mains was again excellent and ample. Four of us managed to share two puddings (panacotta), again excellent while others had coffee. Excellent wine accompanied the meal.We were seated at a window table from which some of us had magnificent views. It was an evening to remember and certainly to be recommended. Thank you to all the wonderful staff.

This hotel is a large, comfortable country house with elegant public rooms (lounge, library, bar and dining room) and pleasant gardens. The bedrooms are excellent with very comfortable beds, tv, hair dryer, tea and coffee, extra blankets, ensuite bathrooms and good quality furnishings. Breakfasts are plentiful and delicious, with lots of options catering for all diets and appetites. Dinner was equally good with a choice of options for each course and excellent service throughout. The hotel mainly caters for Heatherlea guests and provides a comfortable, homely retreat after a hard day's birding. Highly recommended.

We had a Wonderfull dinning experience at the Mountview Hotel. The food was first class and the staff could not have been nicer. We were non residents and booked a table for 6 during the day and dined in the evening. Chef is excellent and there were some very nice touches in the dishes we ordered. Even the kids loved it, clear plates all round. Highly Recommend.

Just back from a really great dinner and overall experience. Our waitress was so so kind and friendly, she explained the advertised vegetarian main (Thai red curry) wasn’t actually available instead it was goats cheese tart... my heart sank I really hate goats cheese and there were no other veggie main options. I explained and she went off to ask the chef and I was offered sun blushed tomato pasta, great!! I was so chuffed, it was a thoughtful alternative and it was really delicious so thank you to the chef! I had the cheese soufflé to start and my boyfriend had scallops and then steak and every course was excellent. We phoned and booked a table earlier the same day.

Surely one of the most underrated restaurants in Scotland never mind Speyside. The food is consistently good with local ingredients. The staff are superb and the views add to the setting. Can’t understand why it isn’t full every night but maybe that’s a good thing
