Booked and checked in efficiently. Again it was plain sailing 7+ hours from the Scotish border all the way into Tomintoul. Sadly this year we missed ALL the snow. We stayed in our usual room, room 3. Quite a few cosmetic changes have taken place and they are very nice but what really needs mention is the menu and cooking....

A great place to act as a base for visits to local distilleries. Excellent service, food, and a great selection of whiskies behind the bar! The staff are very friendly and helpful with local knowledge of places to visit.

Lovely staff who couldn't do enough for you. Bar food tasty and a well kept pint. Our room was large with a superb bed. This place for the price...

I planned to stay here 1 night whilst working nearby. Ended up going back a second night for various reasons, so I can review 2 separate rooms :-) The first night I ate in the bar. Lovely sausage casserole with rice, and a tremendous pint of Best to wash it down. A nice warm fire, and chatty friendly staff. The...

Booked the hotel on a special deal, couldn't believe how cheap it was, so was expecting to get bit on the bum at some stage. This never happened. The owners have done, and are still doing, a lot of work to this lovely old building. Our room was at the top and was the biggest room I have ever stayed...

Really friendly helpful staff, a great breakfast. The room was comfortable and great value. Water was lovely and hot and great heating in the room. Internet was great in the room. The room was spotless and much better than a lot of other hotels I have stayed in. When I wanted to look for the Northern Lights the owner showed...

Went here last minute on a Wowcher voucher with a visiting friend wanting to see some scottish countryside and for the price paid i wasn't expecting much however I was very pleasantly surprised. The building is impressive from the outside and has loads of period character inside with tiled floor and wood panelling. Our room was a good sized twin...

Recently stayed here on a wowcher deal of £79 for 3 nights bed and breakfast for 2 people. The hotel itself was clean and tidy although needed refreshing in parts and the owners very nice but the real stars are the bar/waitress staff. They were very friendly, chatty and welcoming and a real credit to the hotel, even the hotel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally built as a fishing lodge in 1898, the Richmond Arms has had a long history, but has remained a firm favorite of the fishing enthusiast.The Hotel has been empty for the last 3 years, but is now under new management and is a family run business. Due to neglect by previous owners, it has taken 6 months of hard work to get it back open again, and to meet current fire and safety legislation.We offer bed and breakfast for residence, along with bar meals in the evening, which can be eaten in the bars, or the dining room. We can cater for children from birth upwards, and have a number of family rooms. Pets are more than welcome to stay.We have specially designed rooms for the disabled or the elderly.By the end of the year we hope to have attained our Visit Scotland 3 star rating.Tomintoul is the highest village in the Highlands of Scotland, and is situated close to the Lecht Ski centre, and is on both the whisky and castle trails in this part of Scotland. With the opening of the new mountain bike trails in the area, we will be providing secure storage facilities for bikes. ... more   less
