Had a lovely stay here. Perhaps the most comfortable bed ever. The food was very good and the hosts welcoming. Archie is great. The room was clean and warm and we had a relaxing stay. Not a criticism, only a suggestion, maybe a bottle of water in the room would be nice. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel... More

My partner and I were delighted with this last minute booking. We wanted to stay near Aviemore in order to ski over the weekend and the lodge was just a 20 minute drive from the slopes. We ate dinner on the saturday evening and enjoyed wonderful food complimented by even better wine! The proprietors were very warm and gave exceptional... More

Magnificent building. Extremely friendly welcome from our hosts and Archie the Dog. Drawing room grand and comfortable with a roaring fire. Delicious dinner. Very accommodating regarding difficult mealtime requirements!

This is a beautiful Victorian (?) hunting lodge - with all that comes with it: log fire, stags heads, antique furniture and general grandeur. Very friendly and accomodating host - unfortunately we did not get to sample an evening meal as we didn't prebook, but breakfast was delicious. Would definitely return and recommend this place to others wanting a romantic... More

Myself and wife recently stayed at the Dalrachney Lodge Hotel following our wedding. The lodge was absolute perfection. The attention to detail was something I have never experienced before, The owners were absolutely lovely and made you feel really welcome and made the lodge feel like it was your own home. I will highly recommend this place to anyone!

Some of the best hosts I've yet met. We were a group of 8, and were welcomed like long lost friends. The hotel itself is a lovely mansion, full of character - and the associated rooms that are nearly impossible to heat... However, this didn't detract too much, as a great fire was lit every evening in the very comfortable... More

We recently stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed it very much. Our room was large, bright, warm and comfortable especially the super king size bed. If you want modern minimalistic perfection then stay somewhere else. This hotel totally suits the area. The bathroom was small but functioned perfectly. Breakfast was cereal, a choice of cooked items from the menu,... More

We enjoyed our stay but thought the room was tired looking and out of date and expensive. Beds very comfy and water piping hot. Food was mediocre and hugely overpriced. £3.95 for a hot drink!? Adding 25% to the cheese board if you want to share it with someone else? Wine was delicious. Overall this place has nearly got it... More

Many thanks for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We were disappointed that you found the food "mediocre" particularly as we take the trouble to source local ingredients - our meat comes from Speyside, our fish from Portsoy, our cheese from The Cheese Pantry at Ardersier, Inverness and we get most of our vegetables in...
