Great cozy atmosphere, very warm welcome from Grant and Maria. Whole guest house is recently renovated to a very high standard. Breakfast and dinner were of a very high standard. Bedroom was clean and well equipped with a great shower and hairdryer. Great location and all areas of Braemar are easily accessible and the pub downstairs is no problem at...

Yet another delicious dinner at the family run Moorfield hotel. The owners deliberately keep numbers low to ensure smooth service so book ahead. We all enjoyed beautifully fresh cooked food. We will definately be back.

I recently visited the Moorfield hotel for the first time whilst staying in Braemar. The fire was a warm welcome from the cold of winter. Our barman / proprietor Grant gave us a wonderful welcome and I was really impressed by the range of beers and whiskies. We didn't get a chance to stay for food but the food we...

We stayed here for 2 nights and thought this hotel was really great value for money. The bedrooms and communal areas are very nicely decorated with lots of attention to detail in a modern/Scottish style, very tasteful and definitely not tacky! We were immediately met with a warm welcome and shown round the facilities and our room which was cosy,...

We liked this hotel. The staff were friendly, and the hotel looks out at a sports field, where we heard there were some highland games the week before. The elderly lady who stayed in the room before us spent most of the time watching the games out the window. There's a nice bar that my husband spent quite a bit...

I recently visited the Moorfield House Hotel for a reunion with old friends and right from the start I was blown away. The village itself is very picturesque and the hotel is situated right next to the grounds for the highland games. Once inside I found that the hotel had been recently renovated and to a high standard. Everything looked...

I have stayed in many large hotel chains recently, but it's only when you decide to book in to a family run business do you realise what you miss out on. Having informed the hotel I would be arriving late I could not have been welcomed any more than I was, with a roaring log-fire, family atmosphere and a beautiful...
