The Coul House was recommended to us by a very helpful Receptionist at the nearby Tulloch Castle Hotel, who did not have any rooms available. She went to the trouble of phoning and booking for us. Above and beyond the call of duty! Thank you. The hotel is simply lovely, with fabulous grounds to explore. The room was clean and... More

I have dined at Coul House many times over the past few years when visiting my parents. It is a lovely old house, tastefully renovated with a beautiful dining room which enjoys views over the garden. The owners and staff could not be more lovely and attentive and the food is always excellent. The home made tablet served with after... More

Coul is becoming a regular occurrence for us.It is always consistently great value for money.The tea sandwiches and cream scones are delicious and you get the most delicate shortbread and tablet as an extra bonus. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly.It's a must tea stop for my friends and me.

Just perfect throughout our stay. The hotel is beautifully appointed, sympathetically renovated and tastefully decorated. Even the gardens our beautiful and original. We were warmly welcomed and received discreet and outstanding hospitality. The food and wine were excellent too. We had a memorable stay and can strongly recommend this hotel. The other couple we were with, shared our enthusiasm for... More

My wife and I stayed here two nights during a July 2015 trip to Scotland. The grounds and hotel are beautiful; the owners are gracious; the food is good; and the room was very clean with a modern bathroom. The downstairs is particularly picturesque, and you get a feeling of being in a stately Scottish manor house. It was a... More

We picked Coul House based purely on location, it is handy for some hills that we wanted to climb. What a find. I was thoroughly impressed. A stunning old house, beautifully restored and looked after. Excellent service and attention to detail. Top class food. Excellent value for money. I have stayed at many hotels in Scotland, and the quality of... More

I loved this hotel. It's an old Georgian mansion that has been beautifully retrofitted into a hotel. Rooms are modest but pleasant; the public spaces are comfortable and warm. The grounds are exquisite -- beautiful gardens, towering trees, friendly cows -- it was a joy to look out of our room window in the morning. Service was gracious and friendly,... More

It was so "deliciously relaxing" that it made it easy for me to unwind and enjoy myself and was so good we have been... More

Stumbled across this beautiful house hotel whilst on a family holiday in Contin. Enjoyed our tea and scones so much we had to go back a second time for lunch. Amazingly friendly staff, wonderful location and as the sign says 'deliciously relaxing'! So accommodating of our two young children who loved the fairy/scary trail too. Best homemade fudge and shortbread... More
