We stayed here for 1 night, but whished we would have had more time! The area is beautiful for hiking and biking. The B&B is big and the rooms are very clean and well equipped with private bathroom. The host offered us cake, coffee and tea on arrival which was perfect! Breakfast was amazing! We can highly recommend this B&B!

If you're looking for clean comfy rooms and surroundings, amazingly friendly hosts in Al and Sara, terrific breakfasts and tons of helpful advice on where to go and what to see in the area, then look no further than Cranford! Just spent the Easter weekend there, our forth visit the last few years, and it just keeps getting better!

Clean and comfortable. The owners went out of their way to welcome us with lovely coffee and cake. The breakfast was very good. Alister also went to the trouble of providing weather information from MWIS to assist in our Munro climb. My only niggle is the room and reception area was very cold on arrival. This was easily rectified by...

I had the pleasure of staying with Sarah at the Cranford B&B in Braemar on the night of 6th October, after a long drive from Scourie, over some very challenging , but interesting roads with great vistas. On arriving and taking my luggage to the well appointed room, Sarah had a tray of tea and cake ready for me in...

From the moment we arrived, Sarah made us feel so welcome. The room was beautiful, the breakfast superb, & really there is nothing to fault. Sarah was wonderful in providing dinner recommendations, & places to see both locally & afar! By the time we left, Sarah felt like a friend, and we only stayed overnight. If you plan to stay...

This was our second stay at the Cranford Guest House - I can't believe I didn't review it first time round (sorry, Sarah & Alasdair!). If there is a better B & B anywhere in the UK, let me know. The welcome, the food, the rooms, the views, the location (and the home baking on arrival), totally first class. I...

Friendly, warm welcome, followed by the best in 'home' comforts! Sarah, our hostess, spoiled us from the start with home made chocolate brownies and coffee on arrival, and one of the best Scottish breakfasts (spoiled for choice!). Excellent accommodation, great food, and definitely the place to stay in our future visits to the area.

we enjoyed visiting this B&B. Very cosy, we felt as if we were at home or in a friend's place. Definitively a sure choice. Nos encantó este B&B. Super coqueto, muy familiar, te hace sentir como en casa. Es una elección segura si estáis por el parquet natural.

Had a lovely stay overnight during my recent motorcycle tour of Scotland. Clean and pleasant room and a lovely breakfast to set me up for a days ride, even filling my flask with coffee. Looking forward to returning here and would have no hesitation in booking in here again.
