We stayed for just one night to break a long journey and really wished we'd stayed longer. This was a wonderful experience, like staying in a baronial mansion. The hotel is in fact a former hunting lodge with wood panels, grand staircase and lovely grounds, friendly and helpful staff, a large comfortable room (Mill O Brux, complete with four-poster bed)...

This castle hotel was beautiful. The grounds were amazing! The garden is charming and astonishing at the same time. I would highly recommend this place. Also, our dinner was fabulous. We ate at the castle's restaurant! Everything was cooked to perfection!!!

I recently stayed at the Kildrummy Castle Hotel for two nights.It is under new management and having stayed there before, I was disappointed. The practice whereby you have to pay for meals as you go, including breakfast, is not good. There were new dining room staff which led to a mix up with my dinner order. I was not able... More

I had wanted to stay at this hotel for such a long time - finally got my chance during our visit to Scotland in May 2014! It is beautiful in every way. We were greeted so warmly by the efficient staff - true Scottish hospitality! My only complaint was the very small bed (full size, which shrinks considerably next to... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 21st Anniversary. Hotel and gardens are absolutely breathtaking. We stayed in superior suite and can quite honestly say it's the biggest bedroom and bed I have ever been in. Breakfast in restaurant with lovely views onto the side garden was first class as was our dinner that evening. Can't say enough nice... More

We are becoming regular visitors here. And love everything about it. The whole place has a lovely feel about it, the staff are welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We have chosen it for our wedding at the end of the year and i have no doubts that we will be looked after perfectly. Very happy customers. :)

We stayed for 3 nights and we cannot fault the hotel, the staff, or the restaurant. The room was absolutely beautiful, the food very sumptuous and the outlook just stunning. Lovely to sit in the drawing room and watch the red squirrels at play. The proximity of the ruins of Kildrummy Castle add another stunning vista. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay... More

We stayed in the family room with our 3 young kids and had a great time. The garden is beautiful and overlooks the castle ruins. Kildrummy was actually their favorite castle as they could play and climb around in the ruins. The staff was great, as was the food. We thoroughly enjoyed our stop at Kildrummy castle hotel.

Totally disappointed in the food and service. The food was quite tasteless and very overpriced for what you were served. The hotel is in a wonderful setting and in the past has been good quality food. However our visit on Tuesday evening did not match our expectations!
