I travel the high roads and low roads of Scotland on business on a regular basis and I've been staying at the Could House when client needs dictate on a periodic basis for the last few years. In my humble opinion this is probably the best small hotel in Scotland. The location is delightfully quiet, the service is excellent, a... More

We were headed home early due to the strike action by Cal Mac ferries and trying to find a room for the night on the way home. My wife spotted the welcoming sign and as we drove up the driveway and came across the hotel we were hoping they had a room. Luckily they did. Warm welcome, wonderful staff, excellent... More

Before we arrived, friends warned us we might not enjoy our stay, but we dismissed their comments when we arrived at the lovely quiet location, and the main house in beautiful grounds. We were welcomed and shown to a lovely room. But we were disappointed with the dinner, which looked wonderful but lacked taste. In fact, we opted to eat... More

This country house is the 'real deal' so to speak. I found myself constantly pleasantly surprised by the genuine care and consideration given to all aspects of our stay. The thought that popped into my head was 'this is what it's supposed to be like'. The very talented owners and staff have managed to create an atmosphere of care and... More

We spent a couple of days in Coul House right after Eastern with our little daughter and our Viszla puppy and we just had a perfect time. It was just outstanding hospitality we experienced and the house and the surroundings are just beautiful. One can see what amount of effort and attention to detail went into the development by the...

Excellent food, service outstanding, relaxed atmosphere, surroundings lovely, couldn't fault anything - and we can be pretty picky!! We will definitely return, and would recommend this hotel to everyone. We have travelled past this hotel often, and have always wondered what it was like, now we know - Fabulous!

Stayed one night. It has been a long time since I had such attentive service of such a standard. The owner has written a yearly account of his journey in the hotel that is in your room. Well worth a read and In fact would encourage the owner to consider writing a book! Restaurant was outstanding and good value. Room... More

My wife and I (and our three dogs) stayed overnight en route to the NW coast of Scotland. We could not praise the hotel more - Stuart, the 'proud owner', gave us a very warm welcome and was always on hand to answer our questions; our room was very comfortable indeed; the food and service were excellent; the location was...

We stayed here the night of our wedding. The suite was absolutely stunning, with a beautiful 4 poster bed, huge space, heated flooring in a stunning modern bathroom. With a tv above the bath. The room offers stunning views and the staff were impeccable. Breakfast was lovely. Definitely worth every penny.
