Cromlix hotel emerges as a serene getaway, nestled within easy reach of neighboring towns, offering guests a peaceful retreat as highlighted by reviewers. The hotel's amenities, including the delightful afternoon tea and dog-friendly grounds, consistently receive acclaim from visitors. While clean, spacious rooms add to the luxurious feel, opinions on value and service are mixed. Some guests feel the cost is justified by the experience, while others find it steep, and service experiences range from exceptional to disappointing. Nonetheless, the hotel's inviting atmosphere and meticulous upkeep often earn high praise.

We just stayed the one night to celebrate our retirement. The hotel is fabulous and the staff have gone over and above anything else we have seen on keeping everyone safe during this pandemic. All staff wear masks and the hotel has made a one way system. In the restaurant the food is served onto a small table and you pick it up from that. All cutlery is in a sealed cute box . Many tables and sofas have been removed for social distances. Our dinner was excellent and they were only too happy to let you change anything on the menu ,example I changed the polenta to roast potatoes. The dinner prices are very reasonable too. The hotel was busy when we arrived with many people enjoying afternoon tea or lunch.
Our room was comfortable and when I asked for a kettle they brought a lovely tray table with lots of tea choices plus biscuits. We weren’t lucky enough to get a free upgrade as I see many others did.
Breakfast is ordered from the board and served the same way so staff don’t touch anything. My porridge with berries and omelet plus a bread basket was more then enough. The full Scottish breakfast looked delicious.
We enjoyed walking through the grounds and Dumblane village is also worth a visit , make sure to visit the pie shops they were amazing. We will definitely return. We took our small dog but animals have to stay in the bedrooms.

If you could think of a place that provides almost everything, then this is it. From log fires to fine dining to wonderful walks etc. Our room was lovely and had a separate bedroom, dressing room and enormous bathroom with a superb shower. This is one of the first things I judge an hotel by. If the shower is good and it doesn’t leak in all directions then that gets 5 stars in my book and believe me a lot of 5 star hotels have leaking showers.. And a freestanding bath. Also the bedroom was lovely.. Downstairs two drawing rooms with log fires. A beautiful chapel almost 150years old, where people can get married and hold their reception in the house. Afternoon tea was very popular but we stuffed ourselves with their breakfasts everyday, including scrambled eggs where the egg yolks were so big and orange it changed the colour.
We might nibble in Dunblane if we needed to later. All set for the fabulous A la carte dining in their Roux dining room.. Drinks and canapés served half an hour before the meal. The dining room is open plan and you can see all the chefs at work as you relax and wait.. And really the food was just delicious. Left you sleeping like a babe at night. I particularly liked the roe deer and the desserts were really superb and one night we had the cheeseboard which was distinctive as well. Then go and sit near the log fire with your after dinner espresso and petit fours.
The staff were extremely attentive and very helpful at all times and were so friendly.

This was one of the first restaurants we returned to post lock-down and wow have they met the COVID19 regs bigtime. Out of several places we have visited in the last few weeks, Cromlix have gone above and beyond what is expected and so it is a very safe environment. We were greeted by Sara and shown to an area in the lounge for pre-dinner drinks. Everything is served on trays and so the wating staff do not touch drinks or food. The menu was on a board but can be accessed via a QR reader – if you get access within the hotel. The tables are well spaced out and guests set their own places from a selection of cutlery provided in a cute parcel with the Cromlix crest. The food arrives to a side table and guests served themselves, as they do with wine and water. The menu reflects that fact that the chef’s brigade is reduced to prevent crossover. All the chefs and waiting staff wear masks, but that does not detract from the dining experience. We chose to have coffee at the table and exit is via the restaurant so guests do not meet each other in the corridors; there is ample sanitising spray available around the hotel. Graeme and his team made us most welcome and very comfortable under the new regime and particular thanks to Sara and Fraser who served our amazing Anniversary meal – along with a few surprises along the way. Great to be back and hope to see you soon.

We stayed for one night & were glad we booked only one night. The hotel is NOT a 5 star. When we arrived, the first thing I noticed was an odd cooking smell..in reception and the same around other areas of the hotel. (Kitchen is open plan). We paid over £500 for our room & it was dull, dark and did not have the ‘wow factor’ of a hotel of this rating. There was no separate mirror in the room, had to switch off our tv to get the mirror. Bedside cabinets had to be moved to access the electrical sockets. No coffee/tea facilities, only 2 bottles of water & no mini bar. Then we heard the guests in the room above us walking about. No view from the room, just onto the courtyard. The menu for dinner is very limited, only 3 choices of starter, main & dessert. They did provide another menu but it was more like a lunch menu…who would want sandwiches or mini burgers for dinner? The dining area (conservatory) had no ambience and reminded me of a J Lewis restaurant. No candles, table cloths etc and breakfast was served in the same location. The staff were all young and mostly inexperienced, really nice but nobody was managing them. We went into one of the lounges for coffee and were told abruptly that we could not sit there as it was reserved, there was no reservation sign. I felt this was really bad mannered of the staff as we had every right to sit where we wished. It was not our fault they were not organised. Not worth the money, go to Gleneagles where you will get the 5 star experience (we have stayed previously but we’re unable to get a room). We won’t be back to the Cromlix.

My husband treated me to a Dinner Bed and Breakfast package with an added Champagne Afternoon Tea

We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival and told to make sure we relaxed, had a quick tour of the hotel before being shown to our room. Judy Murray was also in attendance and had a welcoming smile and hello for us.

The Room was lovely, nothing over the top, tastefully decorated and spacious lovely penhaligon toiletries some fruit and water. We then went and sat in the lounge area with some tea and scones before the open fire which was lovely and very relaxing.

Went down to dinner and enjoyed pre-drinks and nibbles, all in lovely surroundings with lovely staff.

Sat for dinner close of the open kitchen which was lovely to watch, food was lovely, highlight was defo the rhubarb souffle which my husband had, then had tea in the lounge, before heading back to our room and almost instantly falling asleep in a very comfy bed.

Breakfast the following morning was lovey with a small buffet selection and a pick from the menu.

We checked out and spent some time in the grounds playing chess, then had some drinks and chips in the lounge before our afternoon tea.

The Afternoon Tea was served to us by the fire in the lounge and was nice, some very rich chocolate which I was not able to eat, nicely presented and served well, but was a little bit of a let down.

I am really looking forward to going back to Cromlix as it is certainly a place to just kick back and relax, beautiful surroundings.

We stayed in Cromlix for two nights, and we wished we could have stayed longer.

The Covid arrangements were faultless, with hand sanitisers strategically placed, and signs urging guests to use them. All staff and guests wore masks constantly and there were signs in the corridors requesting sensible social distancing, which everyone observed. When we arrived, our room had been sanitised beforehand, and our luggage was sanitised before being delivered to the room after just a few minutes.

The room we had was the Conan Doyle room, which was quiet and very comfortable, with a really nice bathroom. We had views over the surrounding woodlands

We used the lounges quite a lot, and found them warm, welcoming and comfortable. The open fires were frequently tended. Staff would drop in and check whether we needed anything. Something we really appreciated was when the staff took time to chat, and we found each one of them interesting, friendly, and efficient. There is an excellent atmosphere amongst the staff, and they all seem to enjoy working part of the Cromlix team.

As you might expect, the food in the restaurant was excellent, as was the service, with the tables well spaced out. The kitchen area is open to the restaurant, which provided some additional culinary theatre at mealtimes. The breakfasts are particularly nice, and I really enjoyed the delicious porridge brulee, which I'm going to try and replicate at home.

This was our first visit to Cromlix, and we'll certainly be booking for a return visit.

One word of caution. There are around 20 steps to climb from the car park to the reception level. If you have a lot of luggage, you may want to ask for some help with your luggage. There is an alternative entrance available which has ramp access, if required.

We chose to stay at Cromlix as part of my birthday celebrations, we have eaten at Chez Roux previously so we looked forward to our stay.

From the moment we arrived it was like we were coming home rather than checking into a hotel, our suite was outstanding and instant we felt comfortable and looked after.

Our stay was during the residents only part of October lockdown so it was quiet in the hotel which made it even more special for us. Dinner was exceptional and what I absolutely must draw attention to was the incredible breakfast offering I frequent a lot of Scotlands great hotels and this hands down was the best breakfast I have had ( crème brûlée porridge is just inspired, the most beautiful eggs and delicious sausages)

I was honestly sorry to leave Cromlix relaxing luxury at its finest and I am very much looking forward to my next stay at this beautiful star in Scotlands hospitality industry.

The welcome told us everything we needed to know about Cromlix. We were warmly greeted and given a show round before having lunch in the bar area. We chose club sandwiches which were good and large. By the time we finished our room was ready. We stayed in the Inglis room on the third floor which meant we had a great view of the country side. Access to our room was via a brown narrow staircase where the decor was dated and a bit gloomy. Our room was equally dated but spacious enough for our needs.
We dined in the restaurant and the food didn’t disappoint. The service was a bit too keen which meant that we were continually asked if we wanted drinks from the bar. We like to take our time deciding on the food first then order drinks that complement our choices.
Our server was a bit clumsy and we received the wrong starters but this was immediately and elegantly rectified by a most graceful and experienced member of the team.
You can see the chefs at work which can be entertaining, however the vibes from the kitchen were a bit tense. I love the cheese board at Roux restaurants and this one didn’t disappoint. The soufflé was divine, the hake risotto less so. It was colder than I ‘d like and the hake skin inedible. My husband had the prawns which weren’t cleaned properly, the mushroom sep with taleggio and fig jam and the lemon tart and sorbet. He enjoyed all his food followed by a whisky he enjoyed choosing from the whisky room.
The public rooms are beautifully designed for calm and relaxation but all are showing signs of aging and the need of a good clean. Grime is grime and one does not expect to find it in a 5* establishment.
I would love to go again. I can’t remember the last time I heard so much silence. The snow added to the romance of the place and the staff are its shining stars. They were proactively helpful and that is rare indeed. I never remember names but Lee was outstandingly helpful to us and so were most of his colleagues.

Having previously visited the hotel for lunch last year I was excited to return to experience dinner and an overnight stay. My expectations were set high and I can honestly say they were blown out of the water. This is one of my favourite places in the world. As soon as you wind up the drive you are transported somewhere else. Away from busy day to day life, from all the cares in the world to a place where nothing is too much trouble and you are treated like the only guests in the hotel.

I was a little apprehensive travelling with my 7 year old daughter but we enjoy luxury and fine dining as much as the next person. I need not have worried one bit as every single member of staff made us feel welcome. My daughter was treated with absolute respect and not whispered about or looked at as if she was out of place which she could easily have been at other high end resorts.

We stayed in the Bowes-Lyon suite. It is huge. It has everything you need, it’s tastefully decorated and has beautiful views over the lawn. I’d highly recommend using the bath. Permanent tea and coffee facilities aren’t in the room but can be delivered on a tray when requested, it comes with fresh shortbread, delicious.

We had dinner in the restaurant in the evening and everything was perfect. The food is exceptional and a total credit to the chefs. The menu leaves you spoilt for choice and the service is some of the best I’ve had. It’s nice to visit somewhere with well trained professional staff. For example I ordered a glass of wine to come with my main before we were even seated at our table and right before my main arrived so did my wine. Simple things like that. Faultless.

We also decided that whilst we had the opportunity we would have breakfast delivered to our room. Again could not fault it. Everything was piping hot, exactly as we had ordered it and right on time. Real coffee too, big hit!

Lastly as we were checking out we bumped into a very warm pleasant lady feeding the chickens. We spoke to her for a short while and she was very engaging with my daughter telling her about the gardens and chickens etc. It really gave us a feel for how personal everything here is and how the staff care about every aspect of the hotel.

I hope I don’t have to wait too long to return. We created some wonderful memories and I would 100% recommend staying here to everyone.

My husband booked us a suite to celebrate our wedding anniversary and wow what a treat. We stayed in the Eden suite which is enormous and luxurious. The suite has a large sitting room, a stunning bathroom with bath and separate shower with twin showers. The bedroom has two turrets in the corners. The bed is superking size and very comfortable. The televisions look like mirrors when switched off.
The actual hotel is beautiful, lots of rooms to wander in and out. There's a games room with a stunning snooker table. Lounge with a log fire. The little church is beautiful as is the grounds. The staff are all very friendly and very attentive. The food was outstanding. The hotel is in a beautiful location and has to be one of my favourites. We will definitely be back. Some will think it's expensive but for what you get it's worth every penny.
