Myself and my partner were needing somewhere to stay near to Glenlivet for a road race we were both doing and following some great reviews on here we opted for Cardhu House and our expectations were exceeded! On arrival Dave met us at the car with a smile and warm handshake then proceeded to carry my partners case in before... More

Just perfect! The rooms are so clean, well decorated, confortable, modern bathroom! And the owners are so kind! They gave us suggestions for everything we needed, scheduled dinner and called the taxi, set the fireplace for you. The best night was the 3 courses dinner made by them! Dont miss it!

My partner and I spent three nights at Cardhu House. The property is beautiful. Dave and Val are very friendly and accommodating. The food especially was wonderful. The location is perfect if you want to visit the distilleries or even a quick trip to the seaside (Cardhu Distilleries is within walking distance!).

We stayed at this beautiful country house for 2 nights in January. Val and Dave were welcoming and warm.This was the ideal combination of luxury and informality. Rooms beautiful, breakfasts lovely and evening meal delicious. Spent a couple of hours after our meal sampling local whisky in a sitting room with log fire chatting to Val, Dave and their daughter...

We we're up for a few days on Speyside with friends to enjoy the countryside, sites and some whisky and we were lucky to find Cardhu Country House. It was very comfortable with great atmosphere and the warmth of the welcome matched the open fire lit for our return every evening. Topped off with great food, it was a splendid... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were excellent. The service attentive without being obtrusive. The meals were well prepared and served. Each evening, we enjoyed a nice fire during dinner and in the guest living room. Several nice trails nearby to work up a good appetite. You will not be disappointed! The Drakes.

Great location, very warm welcome, genuine hospitality, lovely period features, scrummy breakfast with locally sourced produce, cracking woodfire, relaxing country walks. Speyside at its best! Thank you for a wonderful stay, highly recommended.

David and Val were excellent hosts. The accommodations were one of the nicest we stayed in our 13 day holiday in Scotland! Excellent Breakfast and Dinner! Had a wonderful time hiking around Cardhu Distillery countryside. Was within 15 minute drive of beautiful villages and other Distilleries. We would highly recommend staying at the Cardhu County House!

Dave and Val make you feel right at home. The house is immaculate, the food is incredible! I hope to return to Scotland...and will definitely be going back to the Cardhu Country House. It is close enough to all the activity...but just far enough away to be quiet and relaxing.

I stayed at Cardhu Country House as I was in Speyside on business. David and Val, the owners, have created a guest house of the highest quality, with the emphasis on traditional hospitality. The rooms are tasteful and warm; the beds are comfortable; the showers are powerful; and the hosts take a personal pride in delivering the best possible experience... More
