A beautiful, immaculate hotel with a lovely homely feel. William and Sonia are very welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was top quality as well as the evening meal, everything is sourced locally and cooked and presented to a very high standard. I will be returning and recommend Culdearn highly to anyone looking for a nice relaxing break in the upmost... More

Twelve years after my first visit, we had an opportunity to visit Culdearn House again on June 8th, 2016. Still run by Sonia and William Marshall, still a fantastic home away from home. They even recognised me after all this time. I had been bragging to my travel companion about it during our trip, and she says I did not... More

An immaculate hotel, with elegant décor and a warm welcome from the owners, Sonia and William. We enjoyed our third stay at this fabulous hotel in November 2015 and will definitely be returning. Sonia is a fantastic cook and uses locally sourced produce: the breakfasts are delicious and the dinners divine.The choice of wines and whiskies is wide and varied.... More

We revisited Culdearn in January and received the usual warm welcome on a very cold snowy night. Our room was very good and so warm on such a cold day, that we had to turn down the heating as we prefer a cooler bedroom. Dinner was very good as usual, but you need to be hunger as portions are generous,... More

We stayed here for our anniversary in November. Such lovely hosts and probably the best steak meal I've ever had. I'd come here just for the food. We stayed two nights in the balmoral room which by the hosts admission was due for a bathroom upgrade. The breakfast was generous (but quite early!) and by far the highlight for us... More

Culdearn House is extremely clean and impeccably run by mine host, Alistair, who is indeed a Type A personality (ie take your shoes off after going for a walk, or they'll be forcibly removed before entry is allowed). I loved the fact that the carpets were cream coloured and yet spotless, and Alistair was helpful with information about walks, local... More

William Marshall runs a very nice B&B just outside of Grantown-On-Spey, the capital of the Speyside area. The rooms are clean and comfortable with good beds. He offers you a drink in the drawing room before dinner, which is cooked by his wife. He's a little bit of a Type-A personality (check out by 10:15 please), but does a good... More

We stay here regularly on our way north as the rooms are excellent, comfortable and always kept in tip top condition. For a small hotel run by the couple who own it, the rooms are far better than many bigger, more expensive hotels we have stayed in. The food is well cooked and portions more than adequate, the ingredients are... More

Our room, Craigevar, was very nice and well appointed with a good bathroom. The food was good quality home cooking but if you are looking for better than that you may wish to look elsewhere. Taking into account other places we stayed in Scotland we felt that Culdearn was expensive for what it was.
