Stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Scotland for business. As soon as you walk into the Kildrummy it most definitely has the WOW factor as has the surroundings of this beautiful hotel, a very homely feel and hotel staff are very welcoming towards you. We had booked the double room but was upgraded to the executive suite which was... More

The hotel itself was very nice and clean and our room was very big. But after paying £100 for the night it would have been nice if more amenities would have been available. For example a notepad and pen, tissues, and a fridge unit. The bathroom was quite outdated as well.

Although the hotel is not directly part of Kildrummy Castle, since it's a ruin, the hotel is located in an old manor, right next to the ruin with a beautiful private garden and a Victorian-era atmosphere. Without asking, we were offered a free upgrade on our arrival. The dinner was delicious, one of the best Haggis I have ever had.... More

This was our first visit to Kildrummy since the new owners had taken over. They were very welcoming and attentive hosts. There have been some subtle improvements to Kildrummy. This includes new décor and extension to the public areas. The former office has been converted into a TV lounge where you are allowed to take your dogs. Cleanliness and standards... More

If your traveling to Aberdeenshire you can't beat Kildrummy Castle Hotel. My wife and I have stayed there on our last four trips to Scotland. The location is great, lot of castles and gardens to see on day long outings. Beautiful landscapes to make your heart sing. KCH to me is the best combination of price (value), location and grand...

Booking rooms for business at short notice on the internet can be very hit or miss. I once spent a night in an establishment near Dundee where the clientèle spent most of the nigh tfighting in the corridors. Ever since then I have booked my own rooms. Even so what looks good on screen can often fail to live up... More

This was a one night winter break at a weekend. Beautiful setting in light snow, would love to see the gardens in summer. Stunning old house, with beautiful entrance and log fires burning! We received a very warm welcome, it felt like we were house guests rather than in a hotel. Comfortable seating areas to sit and read in, soft... More

The Hotel is nestled away amongst trees, and it's so quiet and peaceful. It's like stepping back in time, for any visiting they must sit at the fire in the drawing room at least once while they are there. Such a special experience and very homely, the staff especially Fiona were absolutely fantastic, so courteous and friendly. Dinner was spectacular... More

we arrived Christmas Eve for three nights. A lovely warm hotel with many beautiful features. Wonderful food by a chef who considers your dietary requirements. Extremely friendly and attentive, but not intrusive, staff. Accommodation so comfortable. If you want peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings you will certainly get it at the Kildrummy Castle Hotel. A lovely Christmas.
