As always Coul House Hotel came up trumps when we had a family lunch early in Jan. Service was exemplary. Wine perfect, food lovely and dogs welcome. We arrived after a long walk and indulged in a super birthday lunch. Just lovely. What I love is the hotel is very elegant but welcomes we walkers in all our motley attire...

We had stayed in this beautiful place a few months before and loved it, however this week decided to make the most of a super January deal. Our two days in this cosy, ambient mansion were simply outstanding and we didn't want to leave.... A cheerful fire burns constantly in the entrance hallway and there are comfortable sofas scattered throughout...

We spent two days here in January in the middle of a snowstorm and I can't think of anywhere I would rather be! Comfy quiet rooms looking out on amazing scenery. Absolutely delicious food, lovely staff and professional hoteliers running a great hotel here. What a find although many people have mentioned it before.

Lovely warm welcome with log fires burning and friendly staff. Even in winter the gardens are lovely, with fascinating trails through the rhododendrons inhabited by fairies and scaries. Extensive woodland walks can be accessed straight from the grounds. The rooms are comfy and cosy, and the food, especially the breakfasts, are to die for! Very highly recommended.

It's easy to hand-out five stars and say great things, but do you really mean-it and it is trully warranted? Well, I've found my new 'favourite hotel' in the Highlands and my only disappointment was that I arrived a bit late to the party! I really mean that and it's totally warranted. The first thing to say is that, if...

We stayed here for a birthday treat booked by my parents, They booked us dinner,bed & breakfast. We weren't sure what to expect but boy was it fabulous. The welcome we received on arrival was fab, shown around the ground floor and then shown to our room which is something you don't get when staying at larger hotels. The lounges...

As a family we went to Coul House a couple of years ago for Afternoon Tea - soaking wet and 3 Terriers in tow after a bracing walk. No problems - welcomed! This time it was a Birthday Lunch and I remembered just how friendly and welcoming Coul House is. Food was lovely, service great and a wonderful local atmosphere....
