The family who run the hotel and staff were friendly and welcoming to our family and added a few really nice touches as it was our honeymoon.Picturesque and atmospheric hotel, the library and drawing room were particularly lovely touches and the food was excellent. The room we stayed in was spacious and comfortable with a side room for the kids... More

It is a little out of the way and in the beginning, you think you're going the wrong way but it is well worth the trip. Our room was a spacious superior room with a king size bed and lots of space. The bathroom was a bit on the small side and no shower however it had a spa jet... More

We arrived in pitch dark with no way of knowing what we would find around us come dawn. Peering from our second story window we could see a little of the lighted gardens, and upon opening the window we could hear only water flowing somewhere nearby and the wind in the trees. Come morning, we were spellbound by the sight... More

We stayed there as part of a large group. The grounds and public areas are wonderful. Yes, some of the comments in other posts are true that the bar is small, the rooms can be a little dated, and there is no air condiitoning. But, I found the food in the restaurant to be great and the prices to be... More

This hotel sits in beautiful countryside in the highlands within striking distance of Inverness and on the doorstep of a National Park. Although the hotel is not a true castle it sits next to the original Kildrummy Castle and gardens that are worth a visit - rooms are spacious, very pleasant staff, with gorgeous common rooms and a dining experience...

Stumbled upon this hotel by accident when trying to stay in Aberdeen at a very busy time. What a fantastic accident. The drive is picturesque, The driveway beautifully manicured and the vista of the hotel, with the castle to the side was glorious. On booking in, we couldn't have been treated any better by the attentive staff. The room/suite was... More

Just a couple of nights spent at this delightful hotel again. Room was still the same excellent spacious comfortable retreat from the ratrace that we love with great views and not spoilt by the weather. Smooth checkin/out process. For an authentic country retreat experience really is worth a visit. A hint if you wish to vary your dining experience is... More

Can't comment on the rooms as we only went here for food. The area is beautiful and if it wasn't for the bad weather we would have sat outside in the garden for a drink! Staff were friendly and the food was lovely although it is a bit fancy so if that's not your cup of tea then this may... More

Stayed here for three nights in July with my wife , cousin & his wife. Accomadation, location, food, staff & weather were all amazing & we hope we will be able to go back. Our only negative is that we thought the modern art displayed all around the property was out of character
