Stayed with our beloved pooch, quite possibly the best hotel we've stayed in. Food was outstanding, staff fabulous, setting stunning and as for the "fairy trail" absolutely magical. Counting the days till we go back!

I can really add very little to what has already been said. Service and food wonderful. Situation and grounds superb. Staff were very helpful and friendly and loved the wood trails in the grounds. Thank you for a really relaxing stay. It is a brilliant example of a Victorian Country house hotel with an amazing octagonal ceiling in the dining... More

We only stayed one night on our way home from a trip to Orkney, and wished we could have stayed for longer. We had booked a small double room overlooking the garden, but we were unexpectedly upgraded to a beautiful, newly renovated large room on the top floor with a lovely view of the garden and mountains beyond. We also... More

My mother spotted the signpost as we were driving past - what luck! We only had lunch - but everything was superb. The food, the service, the price. Susannah and Stuart make you feel incredibly welcome and the location is wonderful. Definitely coming back!

Hotel was good but not exceptional. Food was lovely but a lot of things on menu had supplements, enen on the breakfast menu. We had booked with a groupon voucher and were made to feel like second class citizens. We paid extra for a room upgrade but think it was just a ploy to extort more money from us as... More

Just come back from a wonderful 3 night break at this beautiful hotel. We could not fault anything, the service was amazing nothing was too much trouble, the food at breakfast and dinner was outstanding. This is a magical place, I will certainly be back very soon.

Stayed at Coul House for 3 nights and cannot fault the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff but despite the price-tag it does not meet being a luxury hotel. The bedroom was very "tired" the decor needed updating and the bathroom was old and small, with a bath that was a real squeeze to get into (I'm average size). The... More

An individual jewel in the countryside, warmly welcomed on a very wet day after some 180 miles of touring the Scottish Highlands it was a real pleasure to step inside this hotel, log fires burning in the hall and bar added to this feeling of warmth. Clean bedrooms and splendid high ceilinged ground floor rooms with well tended grounds made... More

We stayed in the hotel for a wedding and Ceilidh in the nearly Strathpeffer Pavillion and added an extra night so we could visit my sister some two hours away. We had left home in London at 7.00am, flown to Inverness, and with a hire car, explored the nearby Rogie Falls prior to an amazingly warm welcome at Coul House... More
