Stayed two nights with my wife and 7 year old son in July 2014. We were very comfortable indeed in a very large room, with a huge hand made bed for us plus a comfortable single for our son - and still plenty space to move around. The views over green fields to hills and forests beyond were just beautiful.... More

My now-husband and I stayed at Dalrachney Lodge in February while on a weekend away to celebrate our engagement. Tracy and Gordon were absolutely wonderful hosts, and the lodge and the grounds were lovely! We enjoyed our stay so much that we later contacted them about having our wedding reception there, which we did a couple of weeks ago (providing... More

My wife and I stayed in this excellent hotel for three days this month. We were in room number 1 at the top of the first landing. Our room was extremely well decorated and furnished, in keeping with the public rooms. We had a very nice breakfast every morning and an excellent dinner nightly on the bar area. Archie the... More

If you appreciate good, old fashioned, friendly hosptality, this place hits the spot. It is family run and the people really care about their guests and do whatever they can to make you welcome. The rooms (including bedrooms) are full of character but very clean, comfortable and with wonderful views. The food, although quite plain, is very well served and... More

We stayed for an overnight stay for my daughter's birthday and so we could visit the Highland wildlife park. Firstly, it was great to find a hotel that accommodates a family of five (usually we need to book 2 rooms!). We were given a warm welcome . Our room was spacious and comfortable and there was more than enough space... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during our whistle-stop tour of the Cairngorms. We really were delighted with our stay. We had room 4 which is one of the rooms that has yet to be refurbished, but as a result this room is one of the ones that they accept pets into. It's not an en-suite room which... More

Having been slightly disappointed that this establishment was closed for renovations during our previous visit to Carrbridge last year, I contacted the hotel by email prior to this year's visit to ensure that we could have a table reserved on the date of our wedding anniversary to enjoy a celebratory meal. The email reply from the proprietor, Gordon Taylor, confirmed... More

Spents a wonderful 3 day break here. A real gem of a Victorian lodge set in beautiful grounds which oozes character but nevertheless provides well appointed accommodation with modern conveniences. Welcoming and attentive hosts impressed throughout with their superb customer care. Their clear enthusiasm for running the hotel and ensuring that their guests have a great stay permeates throughout.

We have just spent 2 nights at Dalrachney Lodge Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were attentive and thoughtful and the waitresses friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and warm. The bed was comfy and there was oodles of hot water. We ate in both nights and the food was wonderful. And the views were great.
