A small hotel with personalized attention and service by Jane and Alan Hunter, the owners. Friendly, gracious, and helpful from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Cozy lounges and fireplace for a pre- and post-prandial drink or dessert and coffee. Comfortable, nicely furnished rooms. Excellent cooking and service. Every item ordered over two dinners and two breakfasts... More

I've stayed here several times during July and August as I'm working in the local area. Jane, Alan and all the staff are very welcoming with comfortable rooms and great food in the restaurant. I would recommend staying here if you want to visit the Whiskey trail with several distilleries very close by or just for the great highland scenery.

After visiting Cardhu Distillary (worth a tour and tasting!) down the road we decided we'd stop at the next village and look for accommodation. Jane and Alan were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating to us as last minute arrivals. We ate a delicious dinner in the hotel (I was slightly surprised to find such good food in a small Scottish... More

We stopped here for one night and left wishing we were staying for longer. Jane and Allen are the perfect hostesses running this Scottish inn, lovely spacious rooms, comfortable and clean. We had dinner and breakfast and both meals were an epicurean delight, definitely four stars. The attentiveness and warmth of the hosts made us feel right at home. Highly... More

Most likely you're in Archiestown because you're touring Speyside distilleries or doing business. Jane and Allen run a quaint establishment in a very small Scottish town. Service is attentive and personable. The two course dinner (not included) is a high three-star and begins with cocktails in the sitting room. Breakfast is included. It's an older building so expect imperfections. Be... More

Just a darling place to stay - nice accommodations, wonderful hosts, spent several days in town touring the distilleries, went out for walks at night, went running in the morning and simply enjoyed our breakfast and dinners - just amazing meals that were both works of art and scrumptious! And, of course, we enjoyed a dram before dinner as well!

We could only stay one night but we wished we could have stayed much longer. Our hosts, Jane and Alan Hunter were so very warm and welcoming. The rooms were quiet, very comfortable, and restful after a busy day of sightseeing. What really took it over the top was our delicious dinner, from drinks and appetizers in the front room... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Archiestown Hotel with our daughter and son in law a week ago Saturday as we had done about six years ago and it was just as good as we remembered. Our anniversary was mentioned and there was a card on the table for us in the dining room - a nice touch. The... More

Celebrating the birthday of a friend at 85 on Saturday last, a superb meal for a large number, it hit the spot on every way. Three courses perfectly balanced and served AND piping hot, and if you don't try their twice cooked cheese souffle' then you are missing a real treat.
