4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

A wonderful place! We have just returned from 3 nights at Dalrachney Lodge - it was my first time but my fiancé had been twice before. It's a beautiful old building in a perfect location. Our room was large, the bed amazingly comfy and the bathroom brand new! Oh that shower! I wish our one at home was half as... More

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

Stayed 4 nights . Location is perfect and well placed for exploring the highlands. Food is superb, make sure you eat in the restaurant at least once. Rooms comfortable and quiet. This was the warmest hotel room, we turned the heating off after the first night and left the window open. The owners are first class ,could not be more... More

This was for us a luxury first few days revisiting the Aviemore area. Comfortable rooms, a good standard of furnishing, really nice food and above all a friendly professional welcome. We would certainly put this on a must revisit list.

A fabulously run hotel with a homely atmosphere. From beginning to end the service was first class just like the legendary unforgettable owners. The excellent cuisine and beautiful surroundings made my visit a truly overwhelming experience. Thank you so much x

Having stayed on a few occasions I could not be more impressed with Dalrachney. The Lodge is tastefully decorated with high quality fittings, and every attention to detail covered. It's extremely warm and comfortable, and offers generously proportioned rooms, allowing you to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. The staff and Archie the dog could not be more... More

A most pleasant stay. The lodge has been sympathetically renovated without destroying the feel of a Highland retreat. The modern bathroom was the best I have encountered anywhere. The owners are charming and most welcoming; I recommend the evening menu sourced from local suppliers, and well prepared. Give yourselves enough time to explore everything to do in this gorgeous part... More
