We stayed at the Castle when we attended a wedding in nearby Keith. We enjoyed our stay so much we booked an extra night. I can't really put my finger on why we loved it so much but it just felt right. The décor is lovely & perfect for the property & location. The staff are really first class, very very friendly which we didn't expect when we arrived as these country pile hotels can be a bit snooty. We were allowed to wash our mountain bikes in the yard & keep them in a garage overnight.
The town of Huntly is very peaceful & we found a great little bike ride out (Battlefield Hill).
The food in the hotel was very good & you could mix & match menus, we eat in the Dining room & it was quiet on a Sunday night but felt magical.
OK in our rooms (21 & 22) we had to let the hot water run for ages to come through but this was just idiosyncratic& not a problem The fact that we were up a tower & had a door that could close our two rooms off more than compensated for the minor nuisance.
It really was a fantastic stay & as we travel extensively (my wife is a senior travel industry exec) we get to see some places & this was very good.
