Just back from a Valentines dinner and overnight at the Highlander. The "difference" is of course their amazing whisky selection (though their real ale and wines are also excellent, we tried both...). We'd asked for the Valentines special Dinner, B&B package but there was a bit of a mix up there, however they sorted it out and gave us a...

Spent two nights here with friends, enjoying one of their winter whisky experience deals. This gives free accommodation (B&B) if you spend £50 per person on whisky at the bar. Myself and two friends, all malt whisky lovers, took our wives who don't drink whisky with us which meant we had £100 each per night to sample some really fine...

I could swear I've reviewed this hotel before but it seem not. Anyway I stayed here last Oct for a couple of nights on my own tailored whisky trail. The hotel was fine, there's off road parking, room was clean and comfortable, modern, huge bath room and most importantly warm. Very comfy bed. Down in the bar there's great food...

Just spent a fantastic couple of days in Speyside staying at the Highlander. We were lucky enough to spot the winter whisky deal, which gave us the opportunity to sample some very special bottlings! It was great to be able to chat to Tatsu, Billy and Felix, their passion for whisky apparent, and discover some wonderful previously unknown whiskies, including...

We went for the winter whisky experience (free accommodation and breakfast and £50/head per day for whiskies!), and we were not disappointed! It's a great opportunity to try different and more expensive whiskies, and proprietor Tatsuya and bar staff Billy and Felix were all very friendly, interested and helpful. We started on their 'aperitif flight' suggested six with our own...

Have just returned from a 2 night Whisky break and had a wonderful time. Comfortable and friendly hotel, spotlessly clean, super-comfortable beds. The selection of rare and unusual whiskies is out of this world and the bar staff, Billy and Felix, were knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. It was wonderful to have the chance to taste whiskies which I would never...

We stayed in a house which the hotel owned which was across from the hotel. We were booked in very quickly then taken across the road to our accommodation. The house I guess built in 1900 was not what you would have expected of hotel accommodation. The hallway was chilly and the painted embossed paper on the walls were grubby....

I was in Scotland on business and needed a hotel in the middle of the Spey area as I had a number of places to visit. I chanced on the Highlander Inn as it seemed good value. On first appearance it looked like a big Pub beside the road and that basically is what it is. However inside its a...

Owner was very nice and the bar staff nice too. We were staying in one of the houses adjacent to the main hotel and we could park right outside the door. The curry was one of the best I have had and would recommend that. Brekky wasn't bad but not the best. One night our heating was not working and...

We, four friends, stayed at the highlander inn for 3 night to visit the speyside area to take some walks in this beautifull region, but most important to see some distilleries and taste some lovely whiskies. The owner, Tatsuya and his staff are very friendly and always ready to help you. The food is really very good and the room...
