My husband and I stayed at the Kildrummy Castle Hotel in November 2014 for a mini winter break for a weekend and we couldn't have made a better decision. The service was EXCELLENT. From the warm, personal, friendly welcome, the turned down beds, to the gorgeous gorgeous property, with pheasants, red squirrels and rabbits running around the gardens, to the... More

This was a large B & B with a hunting lodge motif: oak wainscotting, oak furniture, etc. From our room we could see the original thousand year old castle. We were told lodge was several hundred yrs old. All downstairs rooms were open to guests; these included library & bar. Small restaurant with excellent food. Beautiful garden around the hotel...

We recently booked a room for a private dinner for a family celebration. The entire event was fantastic and the team at the castle were well organised, extremely attentive to our needs and the setting was outstanding. It really is a hidden gem and the service and location together make it hard to beat. Thank you Forbes and team.

My wife and I stayed at the Kildrummy Hotel for two nights recently. On the first night, we decided to try the restaurant. When I started eating my main dish (chicken) I found I was chewing away on something that seemed rather tough. I realised it wasn’t food and pulled a section of blue plastic packaging of some sort out... More

We wondered where we were heading when we finally arrived at the hotel - it was quite out of the way. The hotel is very 'olde worlde' and the bar and lounge rooms are very comfortable. Our room was a good size, but the bathroom was small. The beautiful gardens are a real highlight. The restaurant served lovely meals and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel staff gave us a warm welcome and went out of their way to look after us. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are a good size with lovely views of the grounds. You can spend hours watching all the different animals in their natural habitat. We spotted at least 3 woodpeckers... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at this hotel in early June. First of all the staff - Forbes, Miro and all the other staff we encountered were lovely. The place - our first impressions were of a large manor house past its glory (that is not to say the hotel was not clean - it was) but, surprisingly,... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Kildrummy. It is in a peaceful location, the gardens are beautiful, and it is a little less than an hour from the Speyside/whiskey area. Fun to stay in a real castle. They have a nice lounge/library area for relaxing and drinks as well. Only two small things was wifi can be... More

I don't think I have ever experienced such a warm, friendly welcome at a hotel. The staff were exceptional from start to finish. This is a hotel of great character, set in a stunning rural Aberdeenshire location. It isn't the easiest to get to but the journey is well worth it. The rooms are comfortable, some with beautiful views over... More

We visited for a late lunch on Sunday and had the bar to ourselves for our meal which was lovely (especially the sticky toffee pudding) then we moved to the drawing room for coffee. Staff were nice and friendly and made sure we were looked after and gave us a tour of the rooms in the hotel while we waited... More
