Awesome

Beautiful cozy and spacious. Did not feel like staying in an hotel/b & b - more like staying with friends and family.

Stayed 1 night in Mar 2020

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Very friendly welcome and freshly refurbished room. The breakfasts give a choice and quality that is not usually found in a guest house. Tomintoul itself is a small village with plenty of things to do or see but remember quite a few of them are seasonal so either do your research or just phone Diane and check - she’s very knowledgable about what’s on in the area
