an honest assessment for a very pleasant place to stay. The owners are very welcoming and go out of their way to look after you. Food offered for breakfast and dinner very very good. Lounge is a very spectacular piece of history.

We have recently returned from a most enjoyable week at Dalrachney Lodge Hotel in Carrbridge. The hotel is a comfortable country house with sympathetically refurbished accommodation and excellent meals in beautiful and very peaceful surroundings. The owners and their staff are very welcoming and attentive. Our stay was very enjoyable and we hope to return in the future.

We enjoyed a four-night stay at the Dalrachney where we had a large corner room with lovely views over the grounds and the adjacent river. Our room was finely furnished and the bed was exceedingly comfortable. The bathroom was a little dated but perfectly functional apart from a temporary issue with the towel rail. Otherwise, an efficient new heating system... More

A lovely place and a most impressive lodge. The owners and staff were pleasant and most helpful. There was always a choice of good food for breakfast and dinner. I only eat gluten-free food and I was looked after well. The room was fine, very clean, with 2 single beds and plenty of storage. A splendid recently renovated bathroom and... More

A traditional huntin'/shootin'/fishin' lodge on Speyside converted to a very comfortable and rather opulent country house hotel. The furniture and fittings have discrete Harrods lables, the cutlery is Villeroy & Bosch, and the house wine is from Fortnum's. The bedroom was comfortable and well-heated. The proprietor very kindly allowed me use an easy-access staircase because I have limited mobility. The... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and we had a lovely time. The owners were very friendly indeed and very keen to please and ensure that we were happy. The room was very spacious and clean. The separate bathroom was large and clean too. It was quite hard to wash without splashing everywhere though due to a lack of... More

We stayed last minute for one night last week. The family room (which I believe is still to be done up) was very comfortable- the bathroom was a little dated but spotlessly clean. The bedding was lovely- duck down duvets and luxurious cotton sheets- very comfortable indeed. The owners were extremely welcoming both to us and our children and the... More

Everything about this hotel was excellent - the booking procedure, the welcome, the rooms and the food. We will certainly stay there again if we are in that area. Even our long haired miniature dachshund was made very welcome.

Dalrachney Lodge was a highlight of our trip to Scotland. We stayed for three nights and were very pleased with our spacious and comfortable room, wonderful breakfasts, and setting of the Lodge. We talked with other guests, and other travelers in the area, who seem to be "regulars" and really know the area. I guess a lot of those folks... More
