I booked this hotel for a weekend for my boyfriends birthday. The hotel is very old and we really enjoyed staying there. The decor and furniture/furnishings have been kept old to suit the hotel and I preferred this rather than having a luxurious modern hotel. Plenty of grounds to walk in and the estate is beautiful. There is a small... More

stayed one night on a dinner bed and breakfast deal and we were generally quite happy. The location is beautiful and in the middle of nowhere and the staff were polite and welcoming . We had the three course dinner with an amuse bouche and a palate cleanser of a sorbet all of which was very nice but nothing mind... More

This hotel is in a majestic location with superb views all round. It is almost a caricature of a highland hunting lodge and it's all the better for that. Fantastic welcome and service from the attentive staff. Decanter of whisky in the room a lovely touch. Dinner beautifully cooked and served. Room lovely, if a bit on the quaint/ tired... More

We stayed here for one night as a party of four - driving there from Aberdeen. We were amused by the TripAdvisor reviews that complained about the hotel's remote location as for us that was the major attraction and we were not disappointed. We checked in to two of the refurbished rooms with four poster beds - what a treat!... More

We stayed in a nice room in the old part of the hotel. No issues with room itself and reception staff were pleasant and tried hard. The small decanter of Scottish whisky in the room is a very nice touch. Hotel is quite isolated so no obvious alternative places to eat. Restaurant charges £45 per person for set menu (wine... More

Pro´s: perfect location, very friendly staff, very good food in the nice restaurant. Con´s: stayed in the MacIntosh room, which was not renovated until now (end of June). This room spoils the otherwise nice impression quite a bit: holes in the bedlinen, shabby lamps, chipping Victorian bathtub, dirty and old window frames, WiFi only working stranding next to the windows,...

We stayed a Dalmunzie Castle from a recommendation by work college who stayed a few years ago. This was our final stop returning from the west highlands to Aberdeen. First impression of the building was unfortunately a little tired looking and in need of attention. We stayed in the Stewart room which at first glance felt very grand with it's... More
