Stayed at the Gordon Guest House at the end of April with my wife, and we both had a very relaxing time, Amanda & Martin fell over backwards to pamper their guests, the breakfasts and the rooms were all you could wish for. We will be back if in the area again. Brian & Sue

We (three couples) stayed after the Balmoral 10k race, when Ballater is very busy. We found our room to be spacious with a good view. Breakfast was also great. We'll definitely be back!

As a former tourist officer, I feel well-qualified to review this establishment! Amanda and Martin were very welcoming and helpful re local information, (walks, eating establishments etc). The room was very well appointed and extremely comfortable. Breakfast was excellent (try the smoked salmon and cream cheese on potato scone!) I have stayed in over 400 hotels, guest houses and B&B's....
