Stayed here for a night before venturing into the mountains for a few days. Great location for exploring the east Highlands. Good large room with bath and shower, great breakfast. Fantastic knowledgeable host who even made the bread to compliment a great breakfast. Can't fault it

East nearby parking, charming guest house, immaculate interior, very, very, clean . What separates this b+b, aside from the jaw droppingly low price, superb breakfast and massive rooms, the service is perfect.

Wow! Our ground floor room at the rear, with it's own street entrance, was enormous. Even our own table and chairs. Diane, our host, is lovely; very welcoming and helpful with suggestions for dining options and routes to our next destination. Parking is free, but either on the street or in the council carpark opposite. Very good breakfast.

The drive to Tomintoul is spectacular! We spent two nights here. It is a great location as a base for seeing the distilleries. Serene and beautiful biking and hiking nearby too. The village is pretty sleepy at night so if you are looking for pub entertainment, stay in Aviemore or Grantown on Spey. The innkeeper here is lovely. I was...

Came from the north and arrived in the lovely village of Tomintoul. Denise, our very friendly landlady, set us up in a great room with large bath room and nothing missing. Breakfast was super and we had 5 cocked options to chose from (all cocked by Denise husband). We got great tips on activities and very pleased with the options...

Very impressive hospitality and customer service. Super friendly and professional owners. Was visiting as part of a horseback riding group. The Argyle House saw to feeding us three times a day (packed lunched) and did an amazing and creative job. Helpful in every way. The facility is very nice and comfortable. It really shows how much the owners care about...
