I booked this place for an overnight stay due to another local hotel being fully booked. How lucky was I finding this place. A bit difficult to find at first but what a fantastic location literally looking over the beautiful River Spey and a minute from the high street. Great food, great company and great rooms. I had a room...

Four of us made this our base while exploring the distilleries - on the whole it was pretty good and value for money. We stayed Thursday through to Monday and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had the Glenlivet room on the third floor and the Aberlour room on the second floor. The Glenlivet room was small but very pretty, adequate although...

We stayed here for one night during a 3 night tour of the Highlands - in the Glenfarclas room which had views of the river. It is a relatively small room although there was room for a tub chair to sit and look out of the window. The shower room is also compact but everywhere was spotless and the bed...

Four of us spent 3 nights at the Mash Tun in March 2015 and had a wonderful experience. The Mash Tun served as our home base while we toured distilleries in the Speyside area. The bar and restaurant are on the first floor, and the rooms are on the second and third floors. Our room on the third floor, The...

Many thanks to the owners and team for their hospitality during our recent trip to Speyside. The rooms are comfortably appointed and we found the beds to be very comfortable - in fact are off to buy the same mattress later today for home! The breakfast was lovely, as were the bar meals. We had lunch on two occassions and...

I went to the Mash Tun specifically because it was listed alongside other whisky bars I was visiting during this trip to Scotland, but it did not fare well by comparison. Whilst they do have the very impressive looking (and pricey!) Glenfarclas Family Cask Collection, the rest of the range of whiskies is quite underwhelming and the staff who served...

Well run bar/restaurant/hotel. Consistent good standard . Menu is varied and food presented well.Mains of salmon,and chicken with bacon and pate very good. Always a real beer on and sometimes two. Wine is limited but adequate. If in town worth a visit

The food in the bar is great, and the breakfast was cooked to order (and included in the room rate). The room was just as it seemed and was a great place to recover between distillery tours. Only minutes away from some of the best Speyside whisky there is. And they can boast the full 47-year Family Cask collection from...

This lovely place has a touch of class. The rooms are lovely, even gifted with a suite room. Had a bad experience with dowans hotel and left and this place was like a 5 star in comparison. So pleased i left. The staff are really friendly... major whiskey choices and the food was excellent, highly recommend the steak!

Chose this from a number of suggestions and very glad I did. Arrived after a scary drive up the A9 and was greeted with a warm welcome and shown to my room by Nicola, which was first class. As it was getting late I went down to the bar for dinner and was very pleasantly surprised by the menu and...
