My husband and I spent one night at Culdearn House. Our hosts, William and Sonia were lovely: helpful and very pleasant. Our room was beautiful. Spotless and very large, the king-size bed was extremely comfortable with gorgeous linens. The bathroom was huge and spotless. The Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries provided a nice touch. Dinner was truly delicious. We appreciated the... More

Culdearn House was our first stop in Scotland. What a warm welcome to Scotland it was!! The rooms were excellent. The dinner was fabulous. It really felt like our home for a few days. In addition, our hosts did the utmost to give us tips of nice day-trips we could do. They are very knowledgeable of the area and its... More

We recently stayed at Culdearn House for the third time in six years - and it continues to be a very special place. We live in California, so our stays at Culdearn have been purposely planned as a part of our visits to Europe. The property is in a quiet location, but still central to visiting area attractions (many top... More

Every detail at Culdearn house had been considerd and provided for - having been in hospitality all our lives, we are quite fussy! We stayed here for the last 2 nights of a touring holiday, and this was really excellent accommodation. After Williams warm welcome, we were shown to our room on the top floor, everything you required was there,... More

We booked this hotel by looking at the reviews on Tripadvisor and I am happy to say that it exceeded our expectations. The place is beautiful, there is so much attention to details, from each guests needs, to the decor, to the little things. The rooms are very comfortable, cozy, with as many details as a luxury hotel. The food?... More

My boyfriend and i wanted to get away for Valentine's Day and Culdearn House looked like the perfect spot as it is very well situated for walking in the Cairngorms. Upon arrival we were given help with our bags by our very welcoming host and shown into a cosy and beautifully decorated sitting room (with a lovely warm fire going... More

We have just returned home from a stay at Culdearn House for the Hogmanay package plus two extra nights. A truly great experience, Bill and Sonia are fantastic hosts who could not be more helpful or attentive. Sonia's cooking is absolutely delightful, and Bill's front of house attention is wonderful. The hotel is welcoming, friendly and comfortable, and New Years... More

My husband and I enjoyed a superb evening at this charming Country House Hotel. We arrived to a warm welcome, shown into a cosy sitting room, to be served with canapés prior to dining.

We (two couples) were on a 10 days business/leisure trip which started at the Glen Eagles, Sheraton Spa in Edinburgh, Fairmont Hotel in St. Andrews with many high points, enjoying the best Scotland has to offer. Suffice it to say, the Culdearn House rivaled some of our finest dining and accommodations. The owners worked tirelessly to meet and anticipate every... More
