We have just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay. In a beautiful location, it provides the perfect base to explore the area . Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts and we felt like we were home from home. I realised I was slightly too relaxed when halfway down the stairs I noticed I had no shoes on!...

Thank you for your review. We were thinking it may have been a bit too sedate for you with not many residents but are very glad the peace and quiet added to the relaxing break you needed. It's also good to know that you enjoyed your dinner and breakfasts. Hope to see you again if you're up this way. Thanks...

We stayed for 2 nights in room 1, the most expensive but well-worth it. The room was large with a comfortable bed, plenty of wardrobe space, a chaise longue and dual aspect windows overlooking the garden and river.The newly-fitted bathroom was excellent with bath and shower and "loo with a view"! The food was very good, a limited choice at...

It was lovely to meet you both and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay in the refurbished Premiere Super King room.

This is an older, dare I say stately, building nestled next to a lovely river. The grounds are fresh and green (in May, at least). Rooms are on the second and third floors, no lift. Parking is free, right outside. Our room was spacious with a totally modern bathroom and shower facility. I would have liked a comfortable reading chair...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Bathroom was very high class but window had no frosted glass so had to close blind every time we used toilet. Office for hotel was through adjoining door to our toilet so could hear owner on phone which meant he could hear us. Not good. Bedroom decor very dated. Only one comfortable seat in room....

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the food and wine. Given the quality of the items on the menu i.e. Rump of Lamb, Breast of Gressingham Duck etc, we believe our menu is value for money.

We booked this hotel at fairly short notice as we were meeting others in the area for a field trip. What a good decision it was to stay here! Carrbridge is a delightful village within a few miles of Aviemore and highly recommended as an excellent base to explore the surrounding countryside or the nearby Cairngorms. It has the charm...

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
