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. Our dinner was perfect, scallops were cooked to absolute perfection, best I have ever eaten. My husband was also very impressed with his lamb. Presentation and... More

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

This establishment was by far the best place I stayed during my "premium" walking tour and very worthy of the term "premium". I arrived here at the end of a very long day. Not long after starting my hike in the morning, I fell through the trail into the peat bog. Left leg into the bog, up to my hip.... More

A group of four of us arrived exhausted after a long walk and were greeted and shown to our rooms which were without a doubt the best I have ever experienced. The owners are very obliging and welcoming. An excellent breakfast and a packed lunch of lamb and smoked salmon plus a quiche specially made for us. This accomodation cannot... More

My partner and I booked a meal at Culdearn House on 15 May 2014. The food was fabulous and excellent value for money, certainly 5*. Following the meal everyone, including the owners Sonia and William, retired to the beautiful sitting room for an after dinner drink. My partner totally surprises me and proposes. After the complete shock and positive reply,... More

Unfortunately I was taken ill just before visiting Culdearn House and so do not visit it. My wife phoned to cancel our booking and she was taken aback by the rudeness of the owner who ranted and decidedly told her off for cancelling at the last minute. How could we know that I was going to be ill? There was... More

We had been holding a superior double room for this couple for 7 months, since November 2013. They booked for dinner, bed and breakfast. In the terms and conditions which were sent to the guests, it states that, in the event of cancellation, we may, in high season, charge the full amount. On the morning of their arrival (Bank Holiday... More

I can only reprint what I have now read in precious reviews. "The proprietrix is rather cool and somewhat aloof. The proprietor on the other hand is very affable, and his nonchalant almost “happy go lucky” manner is a foil for the Mistress of the House. There are quite a lot of rules and regulations at Culdearn." We did not... More
