Stayed at Cranford with my son for a day of hiking on the Balmoral Estate. Alistair and Sarah are delightful hosts. They take time to greet every guest and to say good bye at the end of the stay. Breakfast was ordered the night before and was perfectly served and oh so very tasty. Their inn is spotlessly clean, the...

My first B & B experience was at the wonderful Cranford Guest House in Braemar. We were greeted by Sarah with a beautiful smile followed by brownies and tea - what more could you ask for? We laughed at Sauri and Al staying with Sarah and Al. Our room was lovely and comfortable and Sarah was very helpful in recommending...

We had two nights staying at the very welcoming Cranford Guest House. The room was lovely and the breakfasts marvellous. They even passed my exacting porridge test. Nothing was too much trouble and both Sarah and Ali are very knowledgable about the surrounding area and in particular outdoor sports.

Stayed two nights for a mixture of work and munro bagging. Sarah and Alistair are very welcoming and very friendly and Cranford Guest House offers excellent, very comfortable accommodation. Delicious breakfasts and very helpful local advice. The small lounge is great - I enjoyed a wee dram (with a suitable donation to Al and his Mountain Rescue colleagues) while browsing...

Loved this place-beautiful inside & out. The hostess is very helpful & friendly, even did up our laundry for us. Beautiful home & grounds & near downtown area & walking trails. Hostess has a lovely, lilting English accent.

We had a wonderful stay in July 2014 to walk the Lairig Ghru. Sarah is a great host and we especially appreciated the home baking. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Great location too. Braemar is a great base to explore the Cairngorms.

We stayed here for one night during August 2014. We stayed in a family room which appeared newly decorated and to a high standard. Our room was a good size although our friends room was a lot smaller. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were of a very high standard offering kippers and smoked salmon and scrambled...

My wife and I enjoyed Cranford Guest House for four nights in late May as our base for day trips around the Cairngorms. Our entire experience was positive, right from the welcome pot of tea. Sarah is a great host (never got to meet Alistair). The breakfast selections were brilliant, from lighter offerings to salmon or full Scottish. Sarah was...

It's well worth staying here just to sample Sarah's breakfasts - you'll struggle to decide between the continental, full cooked (inc black pudding), kippers, and scrambled egg on smoked salmon. And for Munro-baggers like us it was very stylish to be presented with the proper mountain weather forecast each morning. And to be welcomed back in the afternoon with a...

Thanks very much for your review. I would like to take credit for the breakfasts, but it is actually Al who cooks those! Hope to welcome you again if you still have some unfinished Munro's to climb in the area? Kind regards, Sarah and Al

Great overnight at Cranford with warm and welcoming hosts! Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated, also ample parking. Breakfast was delicious, appetising and well prepared. Can really recommend Cranford - it's modern, fresh and efficiently run.
