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

Our first visit to Coul House was in 2006 and was our first trip away without our baby, a difficult thing for a first time Mum! The hotel was beautiful, the staff wonderful and food excellent! 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

My husband and I were returning from a trip and needed to be near inverness airport. Coul House hotel was a perfect choice. Its a beautiful building, lovingly decorated and renovated over the last 15 years. Our room was lovely, very comfortable beds, a very friendly bar and good food in the restaurant.. Owners were very hands on and helpful.

The hosts and staff are very friendly and helpful, our room was comfortable and well-appointed, and the meals were some of the best we experienced in the UK. We ate breakfast and dinner at the Coul House every day of our stay, and the variety and quality of the food was impressive. This property has a lovely garden and several... More

Had a lovely meal with my father and brothers at the Coul House Hotel. The proprietor was very helpful and attentive and the meal of excellent quality especially considering the slightly out of the way location and unassuming driveway. Well worth the visit and will be back.

This incredible house is lovingly cared for. Stuart seems to run the place effortlessly (which goes to show all the hard work that goes into making it seem that effortless!) The food was outstanding! The BEST Sticky Toffee Pudding I had in all of Scotland! The teas were served with delicious homemade shortbread and tablet. The staff was courteous and... More
