Having visited this establishment in Feb/Mar we decided to treat our neighbours to a special dinner bed and reakfast treat. This has got to be the most disappointing experience of a lifetime. Whilst the hotel and staff were of the usual high standard the restaurant was abysmal. Upon expressing my extreem dissatisfaction to the check out receptionist, this was met... More

Lovely birthday meal with my husband. Lovely surroundings, beautiful meal (not perfect but close) and very friendly staff with excellent service. Lovely areas to sit and enjoy a drink in a beautifully maintained Scottish castle! Will be back!

From the arrival into a toasty warm great hall on a bitter cold day, to the newly refurbished and fantastic bedroom (their largest - Stronagairch or similar name) with the view out over to the castle, everything was cosy, welcoming and fantastically clean. Really clean- a rare accolade from me. Large flat screen TV, little seating area by window, HUGE... More

I stayed on the night of 18th March 2014, a family room , with my wife and teenage daughter. We were so happy that we did what a lovely hotel and the staff were so nice. The room we had was both spacious and extremely comfortable. Dinner was excellent as was breakfast . We will definately return.

My wife and I spent the night here as a birthday treat, and it really is wonderful. The hotel and the grounds are just beautiful, with stunning views and abundant wildlife - perfect for an afternoon stroll on a nice day. The exterior sets expectations high, and the interior areas don't disappoint. Every room we saw of this hotel was... More

Just spent another amazing weekend at the Kildrummy Castle Hotel. I've had a busy few weeks and really needed a stress free escape to the country and thankfully this was delivered with ease. On arrival we were greeted by Elise, like others here have said it really feels like you're visiting fiends and family such is the authentic welcome here.... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night last Saturday. I was made very welcome by Claude (the owner) Elise (her daughter) a Fiona (manager). I was treated as if I was one of the family, or at least a prospective member. The hotel is truly stunning both from the outside and within. It was built as a hunting lodge... More
