Stayed here in a suite, absolutely 5* treatment. This hotel is located in a beautiful quiet setting, just far enough away from the madness of the city but central enough to the main things. The surroundings are amazing and the view from our hotel room was beautiful. The hotel

Absolutely bliss, thought I would feel a bit out of place with this being a 5* hotel but not a bit, from the min we walked in the door to checking out the staff couldn't have done enough for myself and my daughter. This was a Christmas and birthday treat for me from my family

Is it easy to get from city centre to the hotel? Bus/train/taxi?
Taxi would be your best option

Is the spa luxurious? Are there relaxation rooms to spend time in after treatments?
Yes there is a wonderful relaxation room with beds and comfy chairs that is separate from the main spa area. I think only people who have treatments can use it. They provide fresh fruit and iced water or you can bring in a drink from the bar/cafe. I would definitely recommend having a treatment if you are visiting the spa, they are very experienced and attentive staff.

We visited the Culloden as a family but since my children are grownups they had their own rooms. The rooms at the hotel are all a good size and would be big enough for two double beds. Check with the Culloden direct, the staff are all very helpful and will be only too pleased to answer any questions you may have.

Robes are only supplied in the spa area, but towels are supplied in the dressing rooms in the pool. The lift access is right beside the pool area.

"Not 213, dark and no view."
"Check in early enough to allow time to use the SPA etc - definitly eat in the Mitre if you enjoy finer food."
"Ask for the inward facing gardens."
"Request a room with a view of the water. All rooms are very luxurious!"
