Fantastic accommodation with stunning food, you won’t need lunch after their amazing breakfast! Dinner was an exceptional dining experience, not cheap but worth it. The owners and staff go out of their way to chat and offer help at every opportunity. This was our 3rd visit and we had our 5 year Labrador, he was made to feel equally special.... More

Everything first class on our 3 day Hogmany stay. As before proprietors & staff very attentive & genuine & food fabulous. I would recommend Coul House's Hogmany to anyone who enjoys being pampered & thoroughly well looked after. We felt very "at home" here.

Warm welcome from Stuart and team. Delightful bedrooms with a very comfortable bed. Great choice on the menu and my first taste of Hare which was amazing. Only wish I had space for desert. Staff attentive and nothing was too much bother for them. I look forward to returning.

We stayed for six nights in January 2016 and it was the perfect break for us. We were looking for a quiet and restful holiday and that was exactly what we got. You do not have to leave the hotel you can sit in the lounge, bar (with fire) or in front of the big roaring fire in reception. The... More

We stayed for 2 nights for a winter trip to the Highlands and this was about the only hotel that was open for a very long way. Just as well it is very good! The rooms are very comfortable with clean and warm bathrooms benefiting from piping hot water for relaxing baths after a day on the hill. The food... More

Our third visit to Coul House and we are delighted every time. We have had lunch, dinner, spent the night and even popped in for afternoon tea. Each time the service has been attentive but not intrusive, the atmosphere genial, and the food delicious.

I like to read bad reviews. Perhaps that makes me nosey, or maybe, thorough. In any case, I like to be informed, and Coul House, like all of the worlds best hotels, has a small selection of overly dramatic bad reviews to choose from. In fairness, it sounds like those poor sods did indeed have a poor stay. But all... More

We visited Coul house hotel with family (including 3 dogs) to celebrate Hogmanay. The whole experience was exceptional. The owners are warm and welcoming - their passion for their business comes through in everything they do. The main element that distinguished Coul house is the hospitality - you really feel like you're guests in a country mansion rather than a... More

Brought several college aged family members and an adult friend to show them my favorite Scottish Country Manor and First Class restaurant with all the fancy extras! I loved it the year before while by myself and it was even better with family.

There isn't anything negative I could say about this hotel. The owners and all the staff are lovely. Service is second to none. The staff accommodate every request. The house itself is very grand and set in a lovely spot. There is lots of nice walks nearby if you like hiking across countryside. The food is also amazing. What's more... More
