Dave was an excellent host. Our friends liked their first floor rooms very much. Breakfast was everything it ought to be including my choice of excellent lightly smoked kippers. The house and surroundings are lovely.

Stayed here recently and had a fabulous time. The setting is stunning, the house is beautiful, bedrooms are high quality and spacious. We stayed for dinner every night and the food was just amazing. Val and Dave were excellent hosts. Could recommend to anyone and will return.

We felt very welcomed by our hosts. The rooms were lovely, the sights from the windows incredible. Had a lovely breakfast by the fireplace. They also gave us very good tips for visiting the area. Would recommend it no doubt!

A lovely country house, beautiful rooms (bedroom and dining room) decorated as you may expect from the kind of magazines...Dave is a very friendly and attentive host, and the dinner (next to the welcoming fire place) was delicious

Cardhu country house was a very charming B&B in Speyside. A perfect location on the whisky trail. The rooms except for the attic ones are very spacious. Dave and Val are charming, although we only barely said hello and goodbye to Val. Dave is the front of the house man so to say. Our only complaint and personally I think... More

The place is breathing style and grace without anything being complicated. Dave and Kate are warm and wecloming hosts that helped us with natural ease. The area is nothing for those who are after buzz. For us, it was perfect. We would love to come again.
