Beautiful hotel, captures the essence of something very patriotic for me. Lovely grounds surround the hotel and theres a wee pond too with plenty of wildlife. Close to Inverness and of course Culloden Battlefield.

The staff was excellent--always friendly and helpful. The hotel and grounds are lovely--such a peaceful setting. The food was excellent. Breakfast was delicious, and the portions were generous. I'd absolutely go back, but I'd go in the high season when the bagpiper is there to call us down to dinner and everything is in bloom.

The Culloden House is a classically formal experience, from check-in through in-house dining. The building itself is an attractive historic site. Service was attentive throughout our stay. The room was well-apportioned and comfortable, though in-room wifi was spotty at best. We ate dinner in the formal dining room. The meal was trying to be modern inventive fine dining but fell...

This was such a great stay! The bed felt like heaven, the room was immaculate, and the staff were wonderful! Close by to most everything in the Highlands. This was the best place we stayed at during our ten day stint in Scotland and England. Would highly recommend to anyone. Breakfast was delicious, did not try the dinner as we... More

Stayed 3 nights with my wife and had a great time. Accommodation very comfortable and the house itself very historic with associations with the Battle of Culloden and Bonnie Prince Charlie. Location convenient for historic sites, Moray Firth area and Inverness. The hotel has a lot of atmosphere and the staff friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back again.

Dear Alastair W, I am delighted to learn that you enjoyed your stay, Culloden House is probably one of Scotland's most historic houses and we do always welcome guests as if they are staying at a Country retreat rather than a hotel. Look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kindest regards, Stephen Davies General Manager More

Such a very different and refreshing location. Set in its own private grounds. Kept well and run perfectly, the staff and management just couldn't do enough, but also very friendly. Food is excellent, very tasty and well presented and served. A must visit location.

This is a delightful hotel, situated outside Inverness, and provides an excellent base from which to tour the area. The room was well appointed, with all the facilities one should expect from such an establishment. The food was excellent, and I would thoroughly recommend the venison which came with a small portion of haggis wrapped in filo pastry, together with... More
