New name and look for The Deeside Inn after a seven-figure revamp
The Deeside Inn has undergone a £2.2million refurbishment by Edinburgh-based Crerar Hotels, including a new design concept, spa treatment rooms and dining experience – with work in progress nearing completion.
The property, a ‘stone’s throw’ from the Queen’s Scottish residence in the heart of the Victorian village of Ballater, is now known as the Balmoral Arms, and new jobs are being created on site.

The group added that the upgrade is part of an ongoing 2022 investment program which will see £4.5million spent, also encompassing the Golf View Hotel & Spa in Nairn and the Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa.
Crerar Hotels Managing Director Chris Wayne-Wills said: “Investing so heavily and re-launching the Balmoral Arms means we can offer guests an experience that matches the wider royal heritage of the region, as they enjoy all that this beautiful corner of Scotland has to offer. . We look forward to welcoming guests to experience the arms of Balmoral over the summer months.
The group was founded by hotelier Paddy Crerar and says more than half of its distributable profits are donated each year to deserving local causes.
