We were fortunate enough to select Dalrachney Lodge Hotel for an overnight stay as we toured Scotland. The owner was most courteous and helpful. Our dinner and breakfast were excellent. Dalrachney Lodge is on our list to make a return visit.

From start to finish, this was exemplary. The owner was very curteous and the breakfast was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay and will not hesitate to return. The hotel is just off the A9 and very convenient.

We only stayed one night, but were most impressed. It is an old hunting lodge that has been beautifully updated and the owners are most friendly, welcoming, and helpful. We stayed in room 9 with a nice view of the river and a high-quality bathroom. Breakfast and dinner were both very good. It would be nice to have dinner in... More

What we look for in a scottish hotel are nostalgia, thick tartan carpets, and cosy atmosphere!! I've never seen a thicker more attractive tartan carpet on the stairs. The slow cooked venison was marvellous. We watched a mother deer and baby from our bedroom window. And the service was excellent. Thank you.

Stayed for 4 nights in room 1 which is a very good room over looking the river and fields. This hotel is out of the town and is very quiet. Most visitors appeared to be staying 1 or 2 nights. Food was very good but limited with the same menu every night. I would have liked a little more choice.... More

Thank you very much for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. It is true to say that generally our guests tend to stay one or two nights and additionally we do not have a lot of non-residents eating and for that reason our menu does not change during the week. Having said that, our menu currently... More

Booking online on spec can be a gamble but not with the Dalrachney Lodge Hotel. This is a little gem of a hotel which appears to have been recently refurbished to a high standard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dalrachney Lodge is an independent family run Country House Hotel in Carrbridge in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. We recognise how precious your relaxation and holiday time is away from home and we aim to provide a tranquil environment in which to enjoy our wonderful surroundings. Dalrachney Lodge a former Edwardian Hunting Lodge, is set in 3 acre grounds within the Cairngorms National Park and rests directly beside our own 1 km stretch of the Dulnain River. Our Bistro menu features locally sourced food and a good selection of whiskies. We have Egyptian cotton bed linen, Heirlooms towels and Floris toiletries in all rooms. Our Superior rooms have handmade Savoir Super King size beds. Having taken over just two years ago, a substantial renovation project is ongoing which has seen our Drawing Room and Bar/Bistro refurbished and completion of two new bedrooms with new en-suite bathrooms. In March 2015 a biomass boiler system was installed and another two new bathrooms have been completed. Investment in the Hotel is continuing with work starting on updating more bathrooms later in the year and a self-catering cottage will be available for rental in the Summer. We hope you will come and enjoy our Scottish hospitality and all the Cairngorms has to offer. ... more   less
