We are a mature American couple in our 50s & 60s who spent our October, 2014, honeymoon in Great Britain. We relied heavily upon tripadvisor for our hotel & dining selections. Of our 5-nights in Scotland, 3 were spent at The Cluny Bank Hotel. We are not important people who truly enjoy fine-dining experiences. We believe that the other reviews... More

It's like checking into a stately home. Had a lovely reception from the lady owner who showed me to a room I would have expected to pay several hundred pounds for had it been in the lakes or the Cotswolds. Dinner was equally superb and again, very hospitable service. I hope to get back here soon

Having not visited The Cluny Bank for 6 years, all I can say is that Lloyd and Jules have continued to provide an outstanding place to stay and eat. The rooms are amazing and homely, the food is out of this world. Be prepared to try food you have never tried before and PLEASE let Lloyd prepare it the way... More

Great food. Comfy rooms with great characters, great hospitality. Great bar selections. Within 30 minutes driving distance, you have access to major Speyside whiskey distilleries and golf courses. Inverness is within a accessible range. Great place to stay

Great hotel! Unbelievable food! Lovely people! I was fortunate enough to spend 10wks at the Cluny Bank whilst working in the area. Although working away from home both Lloyd and Julia worked tirelessly to make this a home away from home. Rooms are clean, spacious and equipped with everything you would need for your stay. The food is something special...expect... More

Warm welcome when we arrived by Lloyd & Julia and a wonderful box of homemade fudge! The room was spacious and absolutely lovely! The bed was HUGE, complimentary bottled water, and lots of little details to ensure we were comfortable. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the most relaxing part of our journey through Scotland on the Whiskey Trail at... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Cavanagh room which is on the first floor overlooking the front garden. The room was very spacious, with a large (very comfortable) bed, fireplace and sitting area. The room was filled with nice touches: free wi-fi (good strength), complimentary local bottled water (replaced each day), delicious fudge and tea & coffee making facilities. The... More
