Excellent family run hotel. Very friendly atmosphere and couldn't have been more helpful. We used it as a base to go walking and cycling. There is plenty of room to park and enjoyed the view across the fields at breakfast time. Would stay again.

We stayed her with our young boys last week and felt so at home. As well as enjoying the delicious food we were impressed with the space and elegant design of the lodge as well as all the little details. The hosts of the hotel were more than helpful and our young sons commented on how nice it was to... More

Dalrachney Lodge is just beautiful inside ... and out. I wish we could have spent longer there and taken a hike around the area. Maybe next time :-). Our room was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Our hosts were so welcoming, the dog was a nice surprise, and breakfast was just as ordered. I will be recommending it... More

As a family of 3 we made a last minute Easter weekend reservation for 2 nights to go skiing at Cairngorm & Nevis. The hotel is a beautiful old hunting lodge with lovely views in a quiet village. The refurbished areas have been completed beautifully - especially the grand but relaxing lounge. Unfortunately our family room hasn't yet received the... More

Dalrachney Lodge is a favourite hotel to visit for us. Gordon, Trixie and Annabel go out of their way to make us feel extremely welcome. They remember our likes - including wine -and make us feel at home. The food is lovely and the rooms spacious, warm and welcoming. Our dog is welcomed by housedog Archie and is perfectly at... More

Owners are so welcoming. We were in room 6, which had fabulous Villeroy & Boch bathroom, masses of hot water. Towels and bed linen were of high quality, warm and blackout curtains ensured a good sleep. Hospitality tray had fortnam & mason tea. Breakfast was superb, good choice of cooked breakfast and obviously freshly cooked to order. We enjoyed an... More

Thank you so much for your review. It was lovely to have you and your daughter to stay with us. Sorry all the cheesecake was gone on your last night. I'm not altogether sure it was guests who had ordered it but rather that Gordon had sneaked the last piece!! It will definitely be a menu item from now on.... More

During our annual trip to Carrbridge, we once again made a point of booking a table at the Dalrachney Lodge for our Anniversary meal. For the second time, for some strange reason, we found that we were the only diners that evening but we once again enjoyed the dedicated attention from the staff who tended to our every need and...

We stayed at this lovely hotel just as it had opened following a redecoration. It is a large, quite grand house with great views over the countryside and nearby stream just on the edge of Carrbridge. We were lucky to have stunning sunshine for our visit to the Cairngorms which were very accessible by car. Our room was fantastic -... More

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.
