We booked Coul House as we wanted a romantic setting in the Highlands that could offer us something special and unique. From the second we arrived we were looked after totally, Stuart & Susannah were owners who just seemed to not only go that "extra mile" but in such an effortless and professional way, and they have perfected "cloning" by...

Went here with a few friends for a pre-Christmas break. Not far from home but what a gem. Beautiful old hotel, fabulous decor, roaring log fires, and food was just fantastic - everything was homemade. We had lunch, afternoon coffee, dinner and breakfast and I really couldn't fault any of it. Excellent hosts - friendly without bring intrusive and nothing... More

This is a very friendly family run hotel with an owner and staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. What a change from the big chain hotels. I have been in a few "old house" hotels in Scotland and they are often a bit shabby, cold and run-down. This place is none of these, it's... More

My third time staying at Coul House and, once again, everything was superb. Stuart and the team are so professional and attended to our every need (and whim!), so expertly and astutely. The food was excellent, service superb and ambiance warm and indulgent! Just wonderful!

If you want excellent food in a lovely quiet old house with roaring fires and gorgeous views this is the place for you. The area is beautiful with many interesting villages to visit or if walking is your pleasure it is perfect for walks. On a cold winters day a warm welcome awaits at Coul House.

Coul House has a warm and welcoming ambience which belies any formality you might expect as you approach this charming, elegant and historic house. The owners and staff make the wonderful service they provide seem effortless. When we arrived, an afternoon celebration was in full flow, yet they managed to to make us feel like special guests, seating us overlooking... More
