I've been meaning to write a review to rave about how fantastic this place is for a long time. We arrived quite late after a very long drive during our tour of Scotland. The staff were fantastic. They got us booked in for dinner straight away and got us sat down in front of the fire to relax with a... More

Booked for short 1 night stay. Lovely location/grounds, a warm welcome on arrival, very friendly/efficient staff, fine dinner. Would happily recommend this hotel for the aforementioned reasons and it was fair/good value. No need to leave the hotel and plenty of areas to sit for a drink and chat etc, grounds were lovely and relaxing to walk in as weather... More

Lovely stay last night. Such a warm friendly welcome, very comfortable room and great food. It was very relaxing sitting outside in the sun. We were most impressed with everyone who worked at the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

We just finished a week of touring the Scot Highlands, and Coul House proved to be the perfect headquarters for our adventures. The house itself has been lovingly restored, the staff friendly and efficient, and the Owners (Stuart and Susannah) welcoming and engaging. Everyone genuinely catered to our needs and desires, customizing meals, assisting with travel recommendations, and responding to... More

My husband and I just spend a wonderful romantic break at Coul House. We had a large room overlooking the mountains; the bed was huge, the storage space good and everything was clean. The bathroom was more than adequate and suitably clean. The food in the restaurant was great - not a huge choice but then there wouldn't be would... More

We stayed here five years ago and now wish we hadn't left it so long to return. All of the staff are outstanding, along with the food which is served in a beautiful dining room overlooking the gardens. Our spacious room overlooked the small pitch and put golf course and lawn, in the distance the mountains. Make sure you take... More

We found this lovely hotel using my TA app. We followed a car down the drive and this turned out to be the owner Stuart, who was a charming host. As the weather was gorgeous he suggested we sat on the terrace to admire the views - and what views they were. The service was exemplary - genuine interest, knowledge,... More

This is a good place to stop on the way to the NW Highlands and is in a pleasant semi-rural setting with some short walks in the grounds. Our newly renovated room was comfortable and spacious. The dinner menu had some novel and interesting items on it. My crab cake with celery remoulade was excellent, however the chicken with lentils... More

Just what we needed after city jumping for a couple of weeks. Beautiful surroundings, attentive staff, great food. Just outside of Inverness but definitely worth the extra 10 minutes drive. Take a mini break here, you won't regret it.

The hotel and setting are lovely - fairy and scary trails through the woods made me wish my girls were younger! The room was comfortable though the newly-refurbished bathroom was a bit fantoosh! The menu was disappointing after such rave reviews and people around us complimenting it. It didn't change daily so we opted for B&B on our second night.... More

Beautiful Georgian house built 1821 loving restored to create a warm and comfortable country house hotel. Log fires in each of the public rooms, stunning mountain views and lots of natural light. A unique octagonal shaped restaurant that offers an extensive a la carte menu including several vegetarian options however, it is the service that the staff provide that is the most memorable aspect of ones visit to Coul House genuinely warm, friendly and relaxed. ... more   less
