My husband and two daughters (ages 6 and 9) spent two weeks in Scotland this August and found Culloden House to be superb in terms of service. Everyone at the desk, dining room and bar were extremely helpful. My husband and I indulged in the tasting menu while our daughters played chess in the drawing room next door and it... More

Lovely assistant manager and fab staff who have been there for years and work as a team! Lovely drive and pretty walled garden. Sitting room and dining room only really come to life in the pre evening dinner time. Lighting the fire and candles would help the ambience. The evening meal was lovely with great service. The garden suites are... More

The outside of the property looks great and so did the website and trip advisor reviews. However, it was far from a great experience and left a very bitter taste for the cost of accommodation. As up market travellers who stay at intercontinental properties and Shangri La's, we were not concerned about the cost but more interested in a quality... More

Dear DCH Manager, Firstly allow me to apologise for what was obviously a way below par Culloden experience, your decision to choose Culloden House was based on tripadvisor reviews which show a favourable guest experience, I would like to add that I/my team never shirk away from any customer comments or complaints but purely ask for the opportunity to rectify...

Visited Culloden House hotel to celebrate a friends birthday & found the hotel was steeped in Scottish history & beautifully located.We arrived to the sound of a piper welcoming us to the hotel for dinner at the end of an extremely long driveway.We passed the beautifully manicured gardens with croquet lawns.The building itself dates back many centuries & is steeped...

We just retuned from a 12 day tour of Scotland of which we spent two wonderful nights at Culloden House. The entire staff made our stay worthwhile. We could not have been happier with our decision to stay here. I truly felt like I was a part of history. The first night we heard the bagpipes - we enjoyed a... More

The Culloden House is a beautiful old Manor house with gardens. It has a lovely sitting room, a separate dining room and a separate bar downstairs with an amazing variety of Scotch whisky and a nice wine list. Dinner was excellent with a nice variety and wonderful service. Breakfast was included with the room and had a variety of offerings... More

Our stay at Culloden House was very enjoyable.....mostly because the staff was so accommodating. We were in the Garden Rooms...a separate guest house. Huge rooms and large bathrooms. Decor was a tiny bit dated, but it is a Country House and had that shabby chic feel. The Walled Garden was beautiful. Our breakfasts were very nice....again, sometimes it is the... More

I just completed a three night stay as part of a golf tour and was thoroughly satisfied with the experience. Hotel and grounds were lovely, especially the garden. Breakfast was ample, varied and tasty, and the one evening meal we had at the hotel was excellent. The best asset, though, was the staff who were all so friendly and eager... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The room was large, the settings were very nice. The restaurant was quite good. But what made this remarkable was the service.
