My husband surprised me for my birthday by taking me to the Kildrummy Castle Hotel for a meal. This was my first visit to Kildrummy, but will definitely not be my last. The hotel ambience is exquisite. Imagine an evening at Downton Abbey, and you won't be far wrong. The staff have obviously been trained to a very high standard,... More

We had a lovely experience at Kildrummy with noticeable attention to detail from the owners Real fires and candles in all public rooms and the Christmas decorations were plentiful and tasteful. This hotel has so many original features and the view from our room was beautiful in the winter sun with pheasants and hares spotted in the grounds. Dinner was... More

It was the 3rd time we stayed at the Kildrummy Castle hotel - and must say it gets even better. The mother and daughter running the place are doing a great job - the ambience, facilities, much more efficient stuff , make the place a real pleasure

The communal areas are very olde worlde and in the evening I like the way the rooms all have candles on the table. The log fires in all the rooms are also lit giving the... More

We stayed 1 night but wish it was more. It felt like we had gone back in time. The whole experience was wonderful from the friendly greeting. We were upgraded at no cost and the staff were extremely attentive. The bedroom was beautiful as was the bathroom. We had pre-dinner drinks by the fire then dinner in the immaculate dining... More

What can I say! I went with the view to capturing the castle but the castle captured me! On my arrival I was greeted by the owner Madame Claude who was welcoming and friendly with a touch Gaelic charm. The hotel itself is like an olde worlde castle but with a twist of individuality which I find in my own... More

The house and grounds, superb, staff attentive, food average. However the thing that most bothered me was the state of the bathroom. Mouldy carpet, damp smell. Just generally unclean. To make matters worse, when we tried to shower, there was barely a trickle of water and I mean a trickle. I struggled to shower and immediately after I went straight... More

The building, the location, the food, the decor and the staff all made for a wonderfull memorable time. We were a party of 17 who all arrived mid afternoon, we were served delicious pre dinner nibbles and then a wonderfull... 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
