“Good Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Though they seemed a little short-handed that day they handled my mothers 90th Birthday lunch well - food very good and service prompt without being hurried. I'd like to return and have a less busy lunch.

A great hotle in a great location with some great views with helpful and friendly staff such a pity that the food that we were served was well below expectations. Had I not been in a big party and not wanting to embarras our host I and a couple of others would have returned our food to the kitchen. In an hotel like this one expects the chef to know how to cook a steak ours were meant to be blue (very rare) and the others medium rare, Suffice it to say there was not a hint of pink in any of them. Very disappointing.

my wife and myself booked for an evening meal,from the offset we were made to feel unwelcome and uncomfortable the host did his best to humiliate the both of us with derogatory comments and under the breath put downs ,clearly only a certain class of diner are made welcome , so if you wish to dine at this establishment we hope you meet with their acceptable class standards

Gorgeous lunch to celebrate son's birthday. The Castle Hotel is one of our favourite places to eat. I only wish we lived far enough away to justify staying there too.
Beautiful surroundings, excellent food and friendly people, what more could you ask?

Imagine being part of a country house weekend party and you're someway towards the feeling that the Castle Hotel creates for their guests. The staff ( without exception from chambermaid to barman, to reception) engaged with us, made us feel welcome and helped create a homely relaxed atmosphere. The owners "walked the floor" each evening again adding to the feel of being part of a family house party. Well done to all.
The food in the bar was good, the restaurant coped with large numbers adequately, and the choice of whiskies was tremendous.
The accommodation was fabulous. A suite room so often mean just a sofa in your room, not at the Castle. Ours had a large bedroom, separate sitting room with 3 piece suite, and a huge bathroom, our own little flat. Spend the money and treat yourself.
I left feeling very well satisfied, all through they could not have done more to make us feel welcome and worked hard at service, something that in the UK is missing in many establishments, but not here. There was not one item I could have asked for better.
I will visit again, and gladly recommend it to anyone.

One night business trip. Excellent old fashioned place with excellent rooms and service. It was snowing whilst I was there so not much opportunity to venture around the huge grounds. Two minor complaints - no shower in my room (fancy bath though) and really need to be more efficient with breakfast as most of the guests like me were needing to get off to work sharp in the morning. I'll be back soon hopefully.

The hotel is located in the Speyside region, home of great Whisky Destilleries. This hotel has a lot of character an is amazing for a night after visiting some destilleries. The food is very good, and the service as well. It´s very near the old Huntly Castle, about a 15 minute walk.
