We spend 4 nights in the Dalrachey Lodge Hotel. The owners are a very friendly couple. They were very helpful when we were organizing our days there.The rooms are quite big and nicely decorated. We had diner twice at the hotel, which was nice. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely recommend this hotel. Would certainly go back

We holiday locally several times a year and Dalrachney is our favourite place for a dinner out. Saturday night confirmed that again. The welcome was warm, the owners happy to chat when they had time. The public rooms are comfortable and not too formal. The menu offers a good selection with some 'dishes of the day'. The food is simply...

What a wonderful place, we were luckily to have it all to ourselves in between a shooting party and thunder in the glens. The welcome was friendly and the evening meal was divine. We had a room facing the mountains and with the window open you could hear the river Spey. I would definitely stay again.

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
