Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived after walking from Craigellachie. Our walking instructions had said that the owners would pick us up at Ballindalloch Station, but when we phoned we were told that this was no longer the case, and we had to walk another 1.5 miles in the...pouring rain. After a struggle to work out what direction the hotel was in, we contacted the owner again who didn't seem to know where we were. We eventually worked it out with google Maps. However the hotel was pleasant and the showers were particularly good. There is a set menu at £30 per head, offering only one choice for each course. We would have preferred to maybe have a choice of 2 menus. The rooms were good and the staff were lovely. We found the drinks to be expensive. Breakfast was nice and the lady who serves breakfast was lovely.More

Hi Susan, thank you for your review, I'm so glad you enjoyed the facilities and I'll pass on your kind comments to Joan about breakfast. We have two choices for each course every day, one of which is vegetarian. The set menu has worked well...More

We stayed B& B for three nights to attend a family wedding. The staff were superb. We dined in twice. Angus the chef provided a well balanced and delicious set menu. It was truly “dog friendly” The staff are all dog lovers and committed to...treating your best friend as well as they do you. Staffing discreet but friendly and attentive and definitely go over and above their duties. Well done. We hope to return.More

A return visit to The Delnashaugh Hotel. A very different experience to our stay last year. The bedrooms and bathrooms have been freshened up. New electric showers, curtains and a generous tea coffee tray.The sitting room, bar and dining room also refurbished. We received notification...of the set menus the week before our visit to allow any allergies, likes dislikes etc. to be considered. Dining each evening at 19.30 encouraged a drink in the bar first and a gathering of the diners so created a good atmosphere. The food was excellent, varied, local and I would be confident to stay for a week even though we only had four nights. Breakfast was a highlight with the elegant Joan, who greeted you warmly each morning and even accommodated us for an early flight on our departure. Denise the house manager was friendly and efficient and I felt our DBB rate was very keenly priced. We all look forward to visiting again.More

Stopped for a couple of drinks after some walking in the hills. Decided to book a table for dinner as places open off season are few and far-between. The food was fine and on a par with the other places we visited in the area....The food was fresh and there was plenty of it. But what really set The Delnashaugh apart was the friendly owners who not only offered to pick us up from our accommodation but also dropped us off again after our meal. There are lots of clichés about Highland hospitality but this is a real case in point. Would certainly go again.More

Stayed at the Delnashaugh Hotel with 9 other family members for a little fishing and general catch up now that restrictions allow. We cannot thank Fiona, Andrew and all the girls enough for their hospitality and making this break one we will remember and are...already planning to repeat. The location is stunning and so quiet it is impossible not to completely relax! The food is outstanding and locally sourced, the atmosphere so chilled, none of us wanted to leave! Many thanks again guys, see you again soon!More

Visited the Delnashaugh twice on our holiday and both times have found the service to be excellent. Felt like a home from home. Good, homely food at a reasonable price and a nice Merlot too. Definitely worth a visit.

No real welcome on arrival. Gentleman behind bar seemed not to bothered , but eventually we got some pre dinner drinks. The menu on a “whiteboard” was dumped down in front of us. Girls serving dinner much better. Xmas menu. Unremarkable pate followed by traditional...Turkey but with mash potatoes , no roasted ones. Felt a bit like school dinner. Wine list poor, but those they had were too pricey for what they are. Very noisy group next to us , yelling on mobile phones. Very disruptive. This place could be really good but it’s not there yet.More

Hi Susan, I'm just another trip advisor user so you'd be best to email the hotel. Though if my memory serves me correctly, they do cater for vegetarians. All the best
