First stop on vacation from USA to UK. We traveled to Cardhu Country House from Edinburgh Airport (arrived 7:50 am, went through customs, picked up car and finally left airport approximately 9:00 am) and arrived approximately 1:00 pm. Dropped off kids and JUST made it to a 2:00 distillary tour. Reserved two rooms for kids and ourselves which were beautiful.... More

Now under new ownership, we returned for a second visit and were pleased to find the same friendly welcome as last year's. A convenient spot to tour Speyside from. Wonderful kippers for breakfast and comfortable well appointed rooms. Certainly worth a visit.

This house is a bit away from Aberlour but it is worth the journey. We enjoyed to stay here especially because of the owners who were very friendly. We felt warmly welcomed (thanks for the cookies which were wonderful!).

Highly recommend getting the dinner there. It was excellent. Host Dave was extremely warm and friendly and chatted with us by the fire. The house was very nice and offered easy access to a great country hike as well as walkable to the Cardhu distillery.

Traditional old stone house, tastefully restored in peaceful location. Rooms were very clean & comfortable. Dave & Val were very welcoming friendly hosts and the food was excellent. Would recommend to anyone.

Everything about our stay here was perfect! I just wish we got to stay longer! The house itself is beautiful and immaculate, and the surroundings are of course also beautiful. Take a walk around the countryside if you have time! We were relieved to hear dinner was served at the inn because we just wanted to relax after a day... More

We enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were very gracious and the room was large and pleasant although we would have appreciated a little more heating (it was unseasonably cold). Breakfast was acceptable, not more than that. The location and surroundings are fabulous. The nearby Archiestown Hotel has great meals. All in all, a great place to stay.

Thank you for your feed back and comments. We are of course disappointed that you did not feel warm enough and would have taken steps to do something about this if you had let us know. Similarly if there was something more that we could have done for you at breakfast, although I admit that we did not have any... More

Val and Dave are wonderful hosts and helped us with a lot of requests to make our stay really memorable, including recommendations for things to do, lending of a road atlas for not getting lost, organising taxis to get there and back, and much much more. The food is delicious and I miss it already. The rooms are very clean... More

My husband and I had a 2 night stay and are forever hooked on this wonderful B&B. Every attention to detail is evident from the moment you walk in. The house had been lovingly restored and our hosts, Dave, Val and Sarah treated us like family. A gorgeous fire in the guest lounge greeted us when we came back from... More
