We stayed for one night at the Kincraig Castle Hotel and completely loved this beautiful historic house. It's set in its own grounds with fantastic views of the Cromarty Firth. Our room looked across the grounds and surrounding countryside to the sea. The room was slightly dated but this was not an issue for us because it worked well with... More

I have stayed at the Kincraig on business many times over the past 18 years but had not been since its new owners. In the past I have always had a nice bedroom with half decent views. This time I got room 32. This is an attic room which doesnt even have a complete door so you have to crouch... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We can only apologise again for the inconvenience caused regarding the room key issue. We've recently attached new wooden key fobs to all our room keys and somehow there's been a mix-up with a couple of master keys used by housekeeping which has now been rectified. We normally do our best to upgrade... More

We were passing on the A9 and decided to stop for lunch. From the moment we arrived we received excellent service. Staff were attentive and we sat in the bar and were shown to our table. Drinks and meal were reasonably priced. We had good sized portions and staff ensured we were happy throughout. We met the owner who is... More

Brilliant food and amazing hospitality, nothing too much trouble for the staff! Traditional scottish food with a modern twist. Rooms were big and clean. Fantastic views. Would stay again when next in the area.

The hotel oozes with tradition. Service is top notch. The best part of our stay though was the food. Fantastique!!! Michelin star food for sure in terms of quality, menu choice, presentation and taste. And yet prices are extremely reasonable. Everything we tasted was simply divine - sweet potato and cajun spiced soup, venison carpaccio, seared scallops, pigeon, sautéed wild... More

The hotel on the website looked so nice! The price indicated that this should be a 5 star (plus the other "labels" such as Conde Nast), although the website does proclaim it to be 4 star, yet what we got was a good 3 star hotel with lovely staff and a new owner who agrees "there is much to be...

Arrived mid afternoon and received a friendly welcome and efficient check in. The grounds of the hotel were very well kept and although parts of the external structure needed a little TLC, the inside was beautiful, clean and everything you would expect from a hotel of this stature. Our room (Castle) was lovely and spacious, the bathroom as luxurious as... More

Lovely looking house although it's actual views of the Firth are pretty limited. Staff were very good and generally very attentive. We booked a 2 night DBB which was pretty expensive and we're let down on the first night with menu items not being available then served with replacements that were simply not 2 AA standard. The owner offered us... More

My grandson and I were touring Scotland and he wanted to 'sleep in a castle' while there. The Kincraig is very nice, clean and eye-appealing. It is located far from anything else so if you don't have car, a taxi is an expensive way around. It was hot in July and there was no air conditioning or fans so unless... More
