Reviewed 8 August 2016

We were in Room 5 on the ground floor which was ideal for my partner who is disabled.Room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast delicious, with the most perfectly fried eggs we have ever encountered. Owners could not have been more helpful.

Stayed here lately and found the room very dusty .It looked as if it was a dumping ground for random furniture,none matching I have to say. I found that its mostly used for workmen..Leave it for the workmen I say.

What planet is this person on. Workmen are very discerning, and yes we do get a lot of business from firms working in the area. If the accommodation is not up to standard they will not use the establishment so I find the comments totally unacceptable. We offer clean and comfortable rooms with a home cooked breakfast for all.

I stayed here quite a while ago with my sister as we had a family funeral to attend. My sister and myself where made to feel like one of the family. The room was lovely and clean and the breakfast was fantastic. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Gardenia Guest House for two nights as I was working locally. A clean and homely place, and the owners very welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended, and the town of Banff is beautiful.

Everything was perfect. A great care for any aspect of our stay. Owners are really lovely people, despite there was a problem in our reservation, they quickly found a good solution for us. The scottish breakfast was very good. I loved scrumbled eggs!!!!

Stayed from 11-15 May with work, and was made to feel very welcome. Room spacious, clean and comfortable, breakfast really good and Gardenia situated close to all local amenities. Would not hesitate recommending this as a nice place to stay.

I have recently been working in the area for 3 weeks and stayed at this lovely guest house. Christine and Trevor could not have been more friendly and welcoming. The guest house has great character, lovely fresh prepared breakfasts and is very clean. When working away from home is it often very difficult to find somewhere comfortable and up to...

I arrived wet and cold on a long-distance solo bike ride for charity; proprietors Christine and Trevor gave me the warmest of welcomes, and nothing was too much trouble for them. A comfortable room, very good night's sleep and an excellent breakfast set me up perfectly for another long ride the following day. Thanks, both, for a perfect overnight stop.

On arrival was greeted with a warm welcome. My room was clean, bright, quiet and comfortable with free wifi and tv channels. A good selection of cereals or cooked breakfast with freshly brewed coffee. Very close to all amenities such as Banff castle and a delicious bakery which was a few doors down.
