We were travelling over to the West Coast and decided a break was in order, along with some soup or an afternoon tea. Not seeing anything that caught our I eye in Strathpeffer we motored on until my husband glanced and saw the board for Coul House Hotel. All looked quiet as we parked the car, but we had a... More

Excellent service from the manager and all the staff. The room was very pleasant with a spacious bed. The bathroom was a little small, but everything was very clean.The food was great. Both dinner and breakfast had an excellent menu and of real quality. Very good value for money. Could not ask for more.

We stayed during the week and the hotel exceeded our expectations. It is spotlessly clean and the rooms are very comfortable. The bathrooms do need modernising but the owners are aware of this and the cleanliness makes up for the dated feel. The setting is beautiful and the views from the dining room are lovely. It is one of the... More

We called in one weekday afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed what can only be described as a superb afternoon tea, served in a pleasant lounge overlooking the lovely gardens and hills at the rear of the house . Beautifully made sandwiches, warm scones with jam, cream and strawberries and complimentary delicious home made shortbread and tablet were all scrumptious, so much... More

We first visited Coul House 30 years ago and it was great to return and find it as nice a place as we remembered. This time we came straight from a stay at the super-luxurious Carnegie Club, so a hard act to follow, but we had a very happy and comfortable couple of days here. The present owners are doing...

This is a superb friendly venue in a very picturesque highland setting. The owners and staff have been superb catering for our family gathering for the second year running. Beautiful open fireplace in the entrance hall. Definitely a place to visit in the Highlands

The owners and staff were all very good. We will always remember our stay not only in our memories but also with the shortbread recipe we took... More

We had a wonderful overnight stay at this excellent country house hotel. Coul House is a handsome building both inside and out. The public rooms are very attractive, especially the octagonal dining room where both dinner and breakfast are served. Our room was compact but had everything we needed and a nice view over the gardens and mountains - I... More

Stayed here for two nights in late March. Cannot fault the welcome and quality of service we experienced. Casey, our waitress, deserves special mention. Fantastic food, beautiful surroundings, great room. We'll be back!
