My husband and I had a brilliant stay here, the accommodation was superb and the bed extremely comfortable - you could choose what type of bedding and pillows you wanted! The breakfasts were very generous, varied, high quality and most importantly very tasty. Shelagh, the owner was quirky and outspoken, perhaps even abrupt, but well meaning, helpful and clearly a...

Stayed here for the last 3yrs, for a long weekend, for Thunder in The Glens ( Harley Davidson Rally), along with another 2 couples, we have always booked for the following year, during our stay, due to loving the accommodation, and every where else is sold out. The accommodation is excellent, rooms very clean, décor is beautifully done, great nights...

Stayed the one night whilst heading up to John O'Groats. It's a real beautiful B&B everything was spotless and the breakfast was excellent. If you are eating out please visit Pizzariach and not the La Taverna on the roundabout. We had originally planned to visit Pizzariach but was put off by the lady owner of the B&B she quickly booked...

The setting avoids the crowds of downtown Aviemore, which is nice; it's also right next door to the Rothiemurchus activities center, perfect if you want to go horseback riding. The decor is fresh, with the pastel tartan fabrics brightened by more vibrant matching shades in the lamps. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, even the "smaller" room on the first...

I concur with everything said before. Shelagh's attention to detail results in one of the best places we've ever stayed at! Great recommendations for local restaurants, things to do and see. Everything was spotless and on its place.

The Old Minister's is a relatively recently refurbished guest house close to Aviemore. There was an advantage in staying at Inverdruie rather than in Aviemore itself - quieter & within walking distance of local attractions. If you want cheap or very corporate (ie dull & could be anywhere), you may prefer somewhere else. If you want a well placed home...

We only had one night at the B & B but it was a delight. Our host, Shelagh, could not have been more welcoming. The accommodation is excellent and breakfast was generous and specially cooked for each guest. We were given great advice and the warmest reception.

This is a wonderful place in every respect. Our kingsize-bed room was spotless and tastefully furnished; the water pressure was the best we'd experienced in any B&B in Scotland; the bed linens and towels were of a high quality. Breakfast was delicious -- eggs benedict with cured (smoked) salmon, good coffee. The breakfast room itself (and the handsome sitting room...

I stayed with my two sons, one night, early July 2013. The reviews have it exactly right: 1. Lovely lovely building, fully updated, many warm welcoming touches -- a shelf of all the very latest DVDs is an example I don't think I saw others mention to choose from in the lovely sitting room. It is very small (5 rooms)...

Like most other reviewers I can only concur that this is an outstanding B&B and puts many 4/5* hotel accomodation to shame. The quality of decor, furnishings and attention to detail in the bedrooms is first class and this is complimented by the same quality lounge with honesty bar and a dining room and breakfast to match.
