I stayed at Culdearn House during a flying visit to the Highlands with a friend from Australia. This lovely country house hotel offered luxurious bedrooms, beautifully furnished with great attention to detail. The dining room is a delight and the food superb both in quality and presentation. Both our evening meals and breakfast were divine and couldn't be faulted. We...

Thank you for taking the time to write this positive report . We enjoyed your company and are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed staying with us. It was unfortunate that at this time of the year not all of the distilleries are open for visiting but that you were able to enjoy a whisky tasting and nosing evening...

We were greated at the door by Sonia and our reaction was she was very unfriendly. Our room was very well appointed, with a lovely large shower. The towels could have been of better quality for this type of establishment. Food was of excellent quality, our only complaint would be the vegetables were very basic in presentation and taste. William...

I picked Culdearn House on the basis of its very positive reviews and very flattering pictures and having stayed there for 2 nights I still cant make up my mind about it. On the plus side, it is very warm and very well kept, it is not a hotel in the strict sense of the word and its not a...

An excellent small and quiet hotel, well appointed and comfortable. Run by the owners, who produce high quality food and very good, unobtrusive, service. They very quickly assessed what interested us and pointed us unfailingly in the right direction. There is lot's so do in the area, especially if you like wild scenery and well-kept stately homes, plus of course...

This property is labelled as a hotel but it definitely has a guest house atmosphere, for example you have to ring the doorbell every time you want to come in, breakfast is only served between 8 and 9am (even on Sundays!), and check out time is very early - 10.30am. We also thought the £130 per night bed and breakfast...

We are astounded to receive this write up. This couple did not book to stay with us. They booked into another hotel for 3 nights for a big wedding that was in the area. The whole town had been booked for over a year as we had. When they came to our door they explained that they were DESPERATE for...

We stayed a couple of nights at the Culdearn Hotel in June 2011. It is a very well appointed small hotel with about half a dozen rooms. The accommodation was very good. We had a choice of room and plumped for a spacious room up on the top floor. Our room had all the usual features including a comfy big...

I/we stay in up to 40 hotels per year and this remains a firm favourite and certainly in our top three. If you like old fashioned comfort (large rooms, fine cooking, proprietor driven, lots of attantion to detail) then it doesn't come much better than this. This is not a cheap hotel but it is a luxury one with the...

We came to Culdearn House for dinner during our stay in Grantown on Spey. The owners were very accommodating when we called ahead to let them know that we had been slightly delayed en route from Ullapool due to our late incoming ferry. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome from William and some lovely canapes whilst we...

My husband and I arrived at Culdearn House after a long drive in the rain and were immediately welcomed with offers to help us with our bags.
