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

Beautiful old house, in a fabulous location. We had a lovely stay at this B & B hospitality was excellent, clean, breakfast to die for. We have no complaints - but few suggestions to make the stay even more enjoyable. There are one or two slight changes needed, better pillows, bin in the bedroom and the WiFi needs to be... More

We had planned on arriving earlier in Aberlour than we actually did so the distillieries were all closed when we rolled into town. We were greeted at the Country House by Norman, the proprietor, who was SO VERY helpful & welcoming! We were ravenous & couldn't wait til their dinner was served so he sent us to THE HIGHLANDER INN... More

Four of us spent two nights here as a base for our distillery tour and can highly recommend it. The hospitality, cleanliness and comfort were all excellent. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds and clean modern bathrooms. lovely views and excellent breakfasts - the kippers were particularly impressive! Thanks to Tina and Norman for a fabulous stay!

Enjoyed a one night stay. Room was spacious and nicely appointed. Innkeepers were very helpful in providing tips on the local sites and restaurants. Nice quiet location but close to several distilleries and local textile mill.

If the picturesque country house with it's log fire and homely rooms wasn't enough for the ideal relaxing getaway in the heart of whiskey country, the hospitality shown by Norman and Tina well exceeded expectations. From catering for our culinary needs to suggesting an itinerary for the weekend, we never left wanting. The area is fantastic for distillery tours and... More

Great hospitality! Thank you Tina & Norman, Whisky, Millie and Cocco. Tasteful breakfast and dinner. We enjoyed our whisky by the fire and in good company. Beautiful surroundings, you can walk mile after mile on the countryside, quiet, beautifyl nature, lots of birds and sheep. Lovely clean rooms.

Wasn’t really sure what to expect when booking rooms at the Cardhu Country House, but I must say this is absolutely one of the very best places I’ve ever stayed at. Coming from a suite in the Gleneagles Hotel, it felt like coming home coming here! Yes, it’s not a trendy luxurious minimalstic boutique hotel. It’s an old country house... More

We hired Cardhu Country House for a week over New Year. We were greeted by Norman and shown around the house and all facilities. It is as lovely as it looks on the website, in fact probably better and very spacious. Facilities for self-catering were great (even if it took us some time to master the art of Aga!) had... More
