If you are in the area and have children with you, stop in at the Coul House Hotel for afternoon tea, or a tea time bite - excellent chidlren's menu. This imposing hotel was once a shooting lodge. Situated in the small village of Garve on the Ulapool raod, don't be put off by the long, long tree lined drive.... More

I booked my room at Coul House at the very last minute while driving through Scotland, looking for a place to spend the night that very same day. The friendly receptionist told me they had two rooms available: a single room or a double room which they could let me have as a single. Since I am quite tall, I... More

Stayed one night at Coul House Hotel on our way from Isle of Skye twd Edinburgh. Booking was super easy and they were so pleasant about our vague dinner plans, in light of fact that we were coming from Skye. It's a beautiful property! The husband co-owner, Stuart, greeted us warmly and it turns out we have mutual friends in... More

I picked this from the Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed. The owners are friendly, welcoming and have worked very hard for many years to bring the hotel up to its current high standard. Furnishings and decor are elegant and in discreet good, taste, food is excellent, staff are friendly and professional, while the clientele is very international. We... More

I would say I had the honor to stay at this hotel for one night, albeit a short one. The place is absolutely astonishing. Never seen such a beautiful hotel before. Very well maintained, beautifully located, extremely friendly and welcoming staff. I arrived late in the evening and didn't read the driving directions on their website properly. Bing Maps sent...

This is a stunning property set in a stunning location. The owners and staff couldn't be more friendly and this time we had been to see the nearby Strathpeffer Highland Gathering and really wanted a pleasant afternoon tea. We visited as a non residents. One of us had a round of delicious sandwiches and the rest took delicious cake or... More

Originally I was going to title this one of the best in the Highlands, but this is the best experience and food we've had when we've been out with our toddler son. The short version, if you have kids and want to take them somewhere relaxed but has wonderful food and is welcoming to families then Coul House is a... More

I was first in this hotel fifty years ago, when it was a b&b, touring the Highlands with my parents and my uncle. So when I discovered it was still a hotel, in 2011, I was delighted to stay here, and I was even more delighted when I experienced what a splendid hotel it had become under the new management...

When we are up in Inverness we always visit our favourite hotel and restaurant. We married here two years ago, so it has a very special place in our hearts. We had afternoon tea, on Sunday. Sandwiches and scones, with fresh cream, jam and berries. Absolutely delicious as always. A fabulous respite from a couple of busy days. Nothing is... More

Our stay at this spot was one of the highlights of our trip. Our room was very nice. The surrounding estate gardens are beautiful. We ate both of our dinners at this location, and they were of gourmet quality. The staff could not have been more helpful. Try to engage Chris and Stuart in conversation---they have a delightfully dry sense... More
