It was my birthday and I had asked for a mini break where we could go for walks and down to the sea. Boath House Hotel fits the bill! This beautifully restored house and its gardens allow for a gentle stroll, quiet appreciation of the surroundings and relaxation. The Moray Firth is just a short drive or bike ride away.... More

This hotel has everything going for it especially the food [just delicious from start to finish] !! It is in a great setting and the weather was gorgeous. Now on to the down side.... We were looked after [i supose] by a dazed gentleman who seemed to have difficulty explaining things to us. His personal hygiene was not great with... More

Me and my partner stayed at the Boath House for a night in the Cottage. The room was beautifully decorated however be warned that the boiler is tiny in the cottage and we could only get one shower out of it. We then had to wait 20 minutes for it to heat up again. The food was out of this... More

My husband and I met up with another couple for lunch. This restaurant is on the A96 so we came from the west and they came from the east Aberdeen. It is easy to park near the mansion type hotel. We were greeted by a lovely gentleman who served us our pre-lunch drinks with superb choux pastry complimentary canapés. We... More

We had booked a stay in the Boath House for the summer 2015. Unforeseen circumstances led us to cancel the booking 4 month ahead of time. The booking was conditional to a "cancellation fee" and so the hotel charged this fee on the same day of the cancellation. Normally and understandably these cancellation fees serve to recover missed revenue that... More

Our second stay at Boath house (although it has been several years since our last visit) Warm and friendly welcome, attentive and relaxed without being overbearing. Didn’t require too much on our arrival but confident that nothing would have been too much bother had we needed anything. Decided on 6 course dinner menu and was assured that modifications would be... More

We had eaten Sunday lunch here a few years ago while waiting to pick up friends at Inverness airport just down the road. That meal was outstanding, both food and wines. We have been meaning to return ever since and last weekend took the opportunity. We were even more impressed. We stayed in Room One which was huge. Real cold... More

Fantastic stay. Food was out of this world and perfect service. Sam and the rest of the staff made our stay first class. Can't wait to go back. Quiet, peaceful and historic. Celebrating our friends 50th birthday and it won't be forgettable. . .
