Had two nights here while we visited the area and sampled the local whisky. Excellent bar and staff, good food for evening meal and breakfast. Bar has extensive whisky collection with very knowledgeable staff. Rooms were comfy and cosy. Only down side was the hair dryer. Would have taken me a week to dry my hair! Great location to explore... More

I went to the Highlander Inn to sample whiskies and was not disappointed*. However, at least as important as the bottles are the people pouring from them and this place won there too, with Tatsuya (a real character!) and Fraser both making me feel really welcome and putting up with my interminable blather. *This is, of course, an understatement: whisky...

The staff at the the Inn were extremely kind and helpful. Some of the kindest staff i have ever dealt with. The bar had a very large selection of whiskeys with very knowledgeable staff. The breakfast was made fresh every day and was very nice. Even when we arrived half an hour late they still served us. We got the... More

The staff were all very friendly & helpful. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean & the bed very comfortable. Superb range of Scottish malts & good local real ales. The free WI-FI was not great but as well as can be expected in a Spey-side valley. Very good breakfast. But now the important bit..... Last time I ate here the... More

Stayed in Craigellochie and unless you drive there are to options for eating in the evening. One is in the Craigellochie Hotel and the other the Highlander inn across the road. Both menus very similar and fairly limited for a Saturday night occasion. We chose Highlander and were a little disappointed. Staff friendly knowledgeable and attentive but food ( apart... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night during a trip around Speyside. We were greeted promptly and made to feel welcome stright away. Our room was across the road in a line of terraced houses. We had the run of the place. We had the bedroom, a bathroom and living room all for £83! Dinner in the bar... More

We stayed here for one night (based on my wife's previous experience) and I wish we had had more time. Unfortunately we travelled during the distilleries stand-down period, but still thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The room was spacious and quiet with a great breakfast in the morning. We had dinner at their restaurant and had some of the best... More

Not having been here for a while ,decided to try a quick supper. The decor is still tired and in need of renewal. Barman needed a shave and to either wear his tie properly or remove it. But a new menu, no more Highlander Chicken,or Fish n Chips etc. A choice of about 6 meals per course and apparently a... More

Stayed at the Highlander last Friday & Saturday night. Room excellent, breakfast very good. On the first evening I had the Haggis starter, fully recommended by me . Second night I asked for the haggis starter to be developed into a Haggis full blown meal. Nothing was to much trouble, my stay was really good. Loved it

Such a lovely place - wonderful service - people went out of their way to help with luggage and directions. A huge array of whiskies and a lovely dinner (I had a double serve of haggis). The room was fairly large and clean with wonderful heating and a beautiful view. And the breakfast service was friendly (including the dog!) -... More
