Stayed at Cardu Country House for 2 nights in March 2015-the rooms are lovely and big and kept in immaculate condition--the dinner on Sat night was excellent as were the breakfasts-the owners Val and Dave made us feel very comfortable and at home--we shared a great evening with them and other guests in front of a roaring log fire-perfection

We stayed at the Cardhu Country House late August 2014. Amazing. We are in our mid twenties and were in Scotland for the hills, beautiful country side ... Oh and the scotch! The owners were very informative of everything in the local area, even giving reviews of local restaurants which are great. They serve food at the house which I... More

I can't say enough about how much my husband & I loved our stay at Cardhu Country House! It's very clean, the setting is beautiful, and the owners are wonderful. We felt right at home. We loved it so much we even extended our stay. Definitely make plans to have dinner at Cardhu. Val is a wonderful cook and it... More

This beautifully restored country house is perfectly located to launch your exploration on the Whiskey Trail. Our host Dave will be happy to share a snatch of his favorite and point you in the right direction to explore close by distilleries. Breakfast is a full hot delicious meal that kept us going until late in the afternoon. We only wish... More

My boyfriend and I loved my stay here. It's lovely and quiet, clean and cosy. David and Val are great hosts, very welcoming and friendly. Couldn't do enough for us. The room was lovely, had everything we needed. The food was great too, nothing was below standard. Will definitely consider coming back and would highly recommend it.

We've been here only one night - too bad because the place is lovely. It is a bit hidden, as it is located on a side road. The structure per se is very charming and the room we had was gorgeous and spacious. I especially liked the fact that there was a bathroom with a window (very rare in hotels)... More

I need to start by saying that we were the 'guinea pigs' for the new owners David & Val. They had only arrived the day before and understandably everything was quite new to them. The previous owners had forgotten to tell them that our daughter was coming with us but they very quickly got an extra bed popped in our... More

A glorious restoration in the heart of whisky country. Steps from Cardhu, and minutes from many other distilleries, this house was brought back from ruin by the current owners. I did not see the 'before', but the 'after' shows exactly why it took two and a half years. We stayed in the large Macallan room with two twin beds. The... More

This hotel is a little off the beaten track, but easy to find (near the well sign-posted Cardhu distillery) and well worth the effort to reach it. The log fire in the lounge was a bonus, as the central heating was more than adequate. There was no shortage of hot water in the shower. The WiFi worked well, both down... More

We booked the house in advance for a romantic break. We drove to the house to find that our room had been double booked, and that the other visitors would be given preference. We were recommended alternative lodging.

We do apologise that an error occurred. You had booked a room in our accommodation, not "the house" as intimated, a few days previously but unfortunately we had not received an email to confirm this and were not aware of the booking. August is an extremely busy time for us and unfortunately, from time to time, mistakes do happen. However,... More
