About the hotel
The impressive baronial style of the Invercauld Arms dates back as far as 1645 when it was built as a coaching inn. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Grampian Mountains the Invercauls Arms is ideally located for golfing, fishing, walking and exploring Scottish Highlands. Scotland’s Premier Ski resort of Glenshee is only 9 miles away and the Lecht Ski Resort is 15 miles away making the hotel the ideal base all year round.
Our Castle view Restaurant with its impressive windows and wood panelling adds to the character of the hotel and makes for an informal dining experience with us. The Rebel Lounge comes alive most evenings with our talented entertainers offering a relaxed style of entertainment for you to enjoy. In the winter months there is a traditional coal and log fire burning in the front lounge providing a warm welcome for weary travellers. The intimate atmosphere of our Slante Bar provides a very cosy and relaxed setting for unwinding at the end of the day. The hotel is ideal for those looking to partake in outdoor activities, explore the Highlands or just relax and enjoy the unrivalled world famous Scottish hospitality. Braemar itself is a small but very picturesque village located in the Scottish Highlands within the Cairngorms National Park, about 15 miles outside Ballater.

Upgrade for a Jacobite!
This is a quirky old building with uneven floors.
It has a lot of character but could do with some refurbishment and repair. The decor is attractive but a little dowdy. Service was good in all areas and prices reasonable. The bar would benefit from stocking a cask ale, bitter should be served at room temperature. Overall, an enjoyable stay for the price paid but the building does need freshening up.
The room we were given was in a desperate state.
The young lady at reception told us " well it is an old hotel", but as discussed this doesn't excuse the state of the room. The free upgrade was better but the standards were still not at the level you would expect for the rate.
Try to avoid rooms 1 - 3 as you have to walk through the dining area and you have the pleasure of hearing footsteps on its wooden floor until late and then again early morning. Breakfast was shocking. Tasteless and served on what could be described as a side plate. Sharing a large table with other guests and staff who don't have a clue. The only positive of this hotel is the location and view!
