We stayed at Cardhu Country House in the middle of Malt Whisky Trail and it was fabulous. The location is great, only 5 minutes from the Cardhu distillery, with some great options for walking. The house is very cosy, the room was absolute comfortable and Dave&Val are looking after everybody very warm hearted. We decided also to take the dinner... More

Really enjoyed our two night stay with Val and Dave. From the moment we pulled up they were polite, cheerful and very helpful. The rooms were individual, extremely clean, with homemade shortbread!! Breakfast was great and we had a delicious evening meal. Nothing was too much trouble. The one pity was that they don't yet hold a drinks licence... Add... More

The rooms are spacious, the breakfast was consisting of several courses, including porridge with Whisky. The owner recommended a nice evening Walk in the beautiful area. The Dinner was also good, but we should have known before that it is a BYO, we had no bottle of wine with us.

Stayed for two nights in the Glenlivet room which was large, beautifully decorated with a lovely outlook. The ensuite had everything you could possibly need. The owners were away for a couple of days and Colin and Sarah were our hosts. Dinner cooked by Colin was amazing both nights. Dinner was a five star meal but it is a set... More

Cardhu Country House is located very conveniently, right in the heart of Speyside. My wife and me were staying there for 3 nights. Service and hospitality of our hosts Val, Sarah, Colin (thanks for the whisky tasting), and Dave were just excellent. Breakfast was always frshly prepared according to our likes. My wife enjoyed particularly the porridge with just the... More

Everything about Cardhu feels right. We received a warm welcome on arrival and were served an excellent 3-course meal which was much appreciated after a long journey. Our room was perfect for us, the bathroom was well equipped and there were bathrobes too. The large, enclosed garden was perfect for our 2 labradors and we enjoyed the lounge in the... More

This B&B was beautifully kept on a quiet road near an old church. There is not much nearby but there are magnificent views from the church at sunsets. This is a very relaxing place to stay. The couple running the B&B were extremely nice and the breakfast was also delicious. Overall a wonderful choice for a quiet night's rest after... More

Owners were very welcoming and happy to help, provide useful advice about the area and suggest places to visit in Speyside. Bedrooms were lovely and the views of surrounding countryside were beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. We will be returning.
