We stayed here for our anniversary in November. Such lovely hosts and probably the best steak meal I've ever had. I'd come here just for the food. We stayed two nights in the balmoral room which by the hosts admission was due for a bathroom upgrade. The breakfast was generous (but quite early!) and by far the highlight for us... More

Culdearn House is extremely clean and impeccably run by mine host, Alistair, who is indeed a Type A personality (ie take your shoes off after going for a walk, or they'll be forcibly removed before entry is allowed). I loved the fact that the carpets were cream coloured and yet spotless, and Alistair was helpful with information about walks, local... More

William Marshall runs a very nice B&B just outside of Grantown-On-Spey, the capital of the Speyside area. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good beds. He offers you a drink in the drawing room before dinner, which is cooked by his wife. He's a little bit of a Type-A personality (check out by 10:15 please), but does a good... More

We stay here regularly on our way north as the rooms are excellent, comfortable and always kept in tip top condition. For a small hotel run by the couple who own it, the rooms are far better than many bigger, more expensive hotels we have stayed in. The food is well cooked and portions more than adequate, the ingredients are... More

Our room, Craigevar, was very nice and well appointed with a good bathroom. The food was good quality home cooking but if you are looking for better than that you may wish to look elsewhere. Taking into account other places we stayed in Scotland we felt that Culdearn was expensive for what it was.

Sonia met us on our arrival and helped us park safely - as Americans it was quite a challenge in the narrow driveway left handed. She clearly runs a tidy home as the house was spotless. Sonia also cooked all the meals - we had breakfast and dinner twice including a good wine selection and a couple local whisky samples... More

We spent two nights at this property while traveling with another couple. Sonia and William were wonderful hosts. They went above and beyond to ensure our experiences in the area were the memories of a lifetime. Culdearn House is a gracious and well appointed bed and breakfast. Our room and bath were spacious, beautifully decorated, comfortable and up to date.... More

Booked this "Hotel" via a last Minute Website and was glad to get somewhere to stay when most other places where full. It is certainly a lovely House and my room was fine but sadly the Hosts were most unfriendly, so much so that I felt compelled to post this up on Trip Advisor. I do not understand how such... More

We spent two nights at the Culdearn House Hotel on a driving trip around Scotland. Excellent welcome from the hosts, a well-appointed and luxurious room. It had a shower rather than bath and when they saw how tall my husband was we were offered a change to a room with a slightly larger shower, which was considerate. We hadn't originally... More
