My friend and I stayed at the Cullen Bay Hotel last night. We were running the Speyside Way Ultra Marathon today (Saturday 22nd August) and this meant we were checking out very early. The first response of the gentleman at reception on hearing this was to worry that we'd miss breakfast and would we like a continental breakfast delivered to... More

We called in to this hotel with the intention of a having a quick coffee break and then continuing on our journey but when we saw the beautiful view of the bay from the restaurant window asked if we could have a light bite lunch with them. The staff were so friendly and obliging and whilst we took a seat... More

Lovely Hotel with really friendly and helpful staff. Food was nice. Situated close to town and harbour, only a short walk away. One small criticism, not a complaint. Why would a fairly large Scottish Hotel have English Toiletries in the Bathroom, surely they would promote Scottish?

Very good overnight stay, wish we could have stayed longer. Accommodation very good, comfortable and clean. Service excellent and food very good. Room 12 (aka the turret room) very tastefully re-furnished. View from the room stunning. Very good value for money. We will definitely be back.

Stayed here for one night and it was great. Very good and friendly staff, very good food, clean rooms, ask for a Sea view room which gives you a great view of the sea and golf course. Only one small improvement would be to have one or two bedside lamps.

We spent 4 nights in the hotel. The room (n°12 - one of the already renewed) was just perfect. Food is great, and the seaview for the breakfast is amazing. We do not hesitate to recommend it to anyone traveling through the Highlands. L&S

One night stay while working in the area and I was glad I chose this hotel. Staff are very friendly and welcoming from arrival until departure. The cajun chicken was on the special menu and was excellent, no holding back in the heat! Bar prices are reasonable service fast. Views from the restaurant and breakfast area are stunning and make...

Stayed here over the weekend for three nights. Lovely hotel, warm welcome from all the friendly staff and spotlessly clean. I was travelling alone but never felt uncomfortable at any time. Will be returning so can't say more than that :)

This is a lovely old fashioned hotel, with outstanding view over Cullen Bay. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast choices were very good and food excellent. Just felt it was a bit overpriced for our 2 night stay.

I don't normally write reviews but this hotel and its staff deserve one. I stayed one night and wished I could have stayed longer. Cullen Bay Hotel is a beautiful hotel with stunning views of the sea and Cullen golf club right across the road. I arrived to a very warm welcome and enquired about the golf course and was... More
