My husband and I were given a night in this hotel as a gift over our first anniversary. The hotel is beautiful and we received a half bottle of fizz and strawberrys from the hotel as a gift to celebrate. We drank and ate these on the terrace over looking the grounds, stunning view! Our meal in the hotel that... More

We stayed at the Coul House for 1 week coming from Germany to visit family living around Dingwall and to introduce my husband to beautiful Scotland. This hotel is a wonderful place inside as well as its surroundings. Parts of the park around the house are the perfect settings for any fairy tale movie when you walk thru the woods... More

A lovely hotel in a beautiful location. Staff were exceptionally friendly and food was excellent. We booked the eco package which included a boat trip from Cromarty to watch for dolphins. The trip was amazing, taking in old oil rigs in the firth, sea birds and old war time gun posts - with dolphins jumping around it doesn't get much... More

Me and my husband spent 3 days there and we are glad we found this cosy country house hotel in a very beautiful setting. The owners are there every day and very involved with the running of the hotel, which gives it a homely feeling. The staff are very nice and always smiling. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant...

The bathroom was a little small but perfectly managable. Having read the book in hte room with the annual udates it helps to understand the financial contsraints of udating the hotel... More

We stayed here for one night and generally enjoyed it. We particularly enjoyed the dinner, which was beautifully cooked backed up with good service. Breakfast good too. There is a really lovely lounge and a most attractive bar. We were a little let down by the room, which was small and in need of a refurb. The bathroom was very... More

The first impression: oh wauh, the great luxury atmosphere allover the house and its surronding. The second impression: oh gorgeous, playing some golf directly in the garden. The third impression: remarkable, the good food serving for dinner. And during our 10 days stay we felt the quit familiar atmosphere. The owners Stuart and Susannah Macpherson are always present and Chris... More

What makes one hotel more expensive than another? Any traveller will know that the quality of personal reception and service can be as good in the cheapest as in the most expensive hotel. Thus it's largely the amenities and the quality of the rooms which ultimately determine price. At this beautiful old faded country house the quality of service and... More

A delightful stop-over on a long drive south. Relaxing in the gardens with a Pimms in the glorious sunshine (no, really!) was marvellous, delightful staff - nothing was too much trouble, and superb food. The owners, Stuart, Susannah and their family were so welcoming and our children had a wonderful time. Treat yourself and enjoy!
