We loved the friendly service and the amazing whisky selection. The food was hearty and generally v. well cooked and displayed. The staff we're great - very friendly - and we'd certainly recommend for a 'local' night in.

If you like to sleep in a room filled with dust (webs hanginging on the sealing) not posible to open a window, the lounge was filled with a strange smell,.... than this is your place. By my opinion, this Inn is build around a few botlles of whisky, the food was also overpriced. Before booking this accomidation, reconsider !

We had planned on arriving in Speyside on our road trip from Edinburgh in time for at least one distillery tour but it didn't work out that way. Fortunately, Norman, the wonderful proprietor of the Cardhu Country house, steered us in the direction of The Highlander for dinner where we were basically given a private whiskey lesson & tastings by...

We ate dinner in the restaurant & food was very good. Amazing collection of whiskies to choose from, you won't know where to start. Would definitely recommend to other... More

Just back from our 1st visit this year to The Highlander - and already looking forward to the next later this month. Staff of The Highlander couldn't be more friendly or efficient. The food is always of a reliably high standard. The rooms are clean and comfortable. And where else might guests be told that, since our bill wasn't ready... More

You will not believe what you see, when you get down to the Inn. A huge collection of Whiskies, nice waiters and everything you can wish for in a scottish Pub. Good Food, great beer and unbelievabel Whiskies. A real gem.

Duncan and his staff were very welcoming. We found the HIghlander Inn just as described. It was clean and comfortable. We had two rooms for two nights. We did make reservations for dinner upon our arrival as the restaurant does fill up quickly and our table was ready as requested. The food was Great! It was so good we ate... More

We had the good fortune to stay at this beautiful b&b at the tail end of our 3 week vacation. We were tired and a tad cranky when we arrived, but it all turned around upon meeting our hosts. They were exceptionally welcoming and the accommodations were fantastic! Easy access to sites/pubs/and CLEAN! We were treated like family (better actually)... More

Stayed here 1 night whilst walking the Speyside Way. We were given a warm welcome by helpful and polite staff. Rooms comfortable and cosy, everything worked, great en-suite shower. Evening meal was very good as was breakfast the following morning. Whisky Bar is amazing. Happy to recommend this hotel to friends and family.
