Finnishing off our work period in Scotland my norwegian colleague and I decided to spend our last night at a Scottish castle. This was end of March 2015, off season obviously, and we found ourselves more or less alone at this small hotel. They upgraded our rooms, thank you! What a great atmosphere this castle/hotel has. Just as one might... More

Me and my kids (teens) first impressions of this hotel was that it seemed pretentious. However, after getting settled in and exploring the grounds we quickly changed our minds. This hotel is set upon an absolutely exquisite piece of property which included lovely gardens and a woodsy area. The breakfast was delicious and the waitstaff couldn't have been more pleasant....

Everything you would expect and more staying in a castle. We booked a very large corner room overlooking the castle ruins and the garden (complete with pheasants). This place is marvelous and the wood working and other decor are outstanding. Bit of a long ride from Aberdeen but worth the trip. Wish we would have stayed longer.

Although isolated, Kildrummy Castle Hotel is beautiful. Staff was wonderful and rooms were great. A quite place that harkens back to a much slower and more refined time. Beautiful setting not far of the Whiskey Trail.

Booked two nights here for a relaxing break and it was perfect for that. My husband and I both enjoyed the breakfast a lot. Room was a great size and bed was comfortable. A bit more staff presence in the reception area would be great as felt a bit lost on arrival and didn't know who to ask for a... More

Recently spent a night here with my wife as a birthday treat. Beautiful surroundings, lovely place, polite helpful staff. The rooms are named not numbered. We were upgraded to Honeybarrel, nice big room, en suite with large bath and natural light, which I like in a bathroom. Best of all, this is the room with the roof terrace and on... More

My wife and I recently spent a night at Kildrummy Castle Hotel for a birthday treat. On arrival, we drove through a tree and shrub lined driveway and had to slow to a crawl to avoid the rabbits and pheasants. Love it! We were met at reception by a cheery, informative member of staff who informed us we had been... More

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

Stayed here for one night as a couple. The hotel is a beautiful building with lots of character and interesting features. It's in a beautiful setting and the public rooms are maintained to a high standard. The bedroom was also very nice and spacious with lovely antique furniture. My expectations for our stay here were quite high, I had picked... More
