Reviewed December 11, 2012

This hotel is so understated but delivers a high quality service and excellent food. It feels like staying in someone's own home with elegant but comfortable surroundings.
The staff are welcoming and deliver a high quality service. The food was excellent.
I can't wait to visit again!

The hotel was a beautiful country setting with lovely scenery. The staff were very attentive and the service was excellent. Our room was very spacious with beautiful decor and extremely comfortable. The breakfast and evening meal were delicious. After dinner tea and coffee was lovely in the lounge.

A lovely stay in a beautiful house.Interesting decor with great attention to detail ( Lots to look at and compare our own family portraits ) The food was beautiful,a chef who obviously tastes the food before serving.Service was unparalleled at meals .The table cloths and napkins pristine and everywhere little unique touches which made the experience so pleasant.Loved being "spoiled" by the staff (such a change from home which is what this is all about) Very Downton Abbey with echoes of a byegone age.(Plenty of motels if this is not for you.) Fully recommend Kinloch House and hope to visit again .

Our second visit this year to Kinloch House. The first blew us away so we decided to return to celebrate our wedding anniversary with friends. We were so pleased our second visit was not an anti-climax if anything it was even better! Our previous haunt for many years Cromlix House sadly is no more however Kinloch House is even better! The Management and staff really do go out of their way to see that guests are well looked after. A well deserved five star rating.

Liked: log fires, comfortable sofas, well cooked and locally sourced food, breakfast, cleanliness, feather pillows, large wardrobes, large bathroom, plenty of parking, quiet and scenic location.
Disliked: lack of hospitality tray or bottled water in room, shaver point at the opposite end of the bathroom to the shaving mirror, price of the dinner, lack of reasonably priced wines, expensive bar prices, stuffed animals, collection of antique hairbrushes, 'ugly' portraits in the gallery, staff old fashioned and too formal creating an unwelcome atmosphere, 5 star 'rating' (by whom?).

I took my grandfather here for his 93rd birthday and rang ahead to check they could accommodate his dietary requirements. The staff went out of their way to assist me, baking some homemade scones and shortbread and still allowing us to order from the restaurant menu if the rest of us wished. They made the effort to decorate the plate specially wishing him a happy birthday and really made every effort to make it both a special and a memorable day.

Having read other reviews on here that state this is not a 5 star experience I would disagree. Having stayed in many other 5 star hotels both in the UK and abroad I found Kinloch House to be of an exceptionally high standard. I was extremely impressed by the service and overall attentiveness/ friendliness of the staff. The food was fabulous and the location and venue were just gorgeous.

They say 'there's no place like home' but I would suggest that anyone who says this has perhaps not visited Kinloch House.

Thank you for a really lovely visit. We will definitely be back!

Our second visit in the last couple of years, and planning another visit next year. There are certain hotels that appeal because they allow us to feel relaxed within a 'classic' country house atmosphere ...the Torridon, the Ballathie and others. Kinloch House is such a place - relaxing and gracious. The food is excellent and the service is exemplary. We are not wealthy, but have a sense of good value, as we simply enjoy the hotel.
