“Do not miss this gem!”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

I wish I could have stayed here longer than one evening -- I had an early morning plane to catch at Aberdeen airport. The atmosphere is marvelous and the bar is a place where you want to sit and dream of writing the great American novel. The staff was so friendly -- they saw how tired I was and took me up to my room, brought me dinner on a tray, and never asked for my credit card. Wow! (I did pay, however!)

Quite a bit overrated for the family, if your children are used to dark rooms this is not the room for you, mesh curtain over sky light meant kids were up very early.

Also the bed was very uncomfortable, beautiful location though and friendly staff were the upside.

As the childhood home to the Duchess of Gordon, the Castle Hotel Huntly is literally fit for royalty! In fact, from start to finish, every aspect of our stay was, in a word, superb. Since our stay was only for one night, we opted for a suite, which included a gorgeous sitting room, beautiful bedroom and lovely bathroom. The sitting room featured a flat screen TV, fireplace, dining table, a comfortable sitting area, free scotch, fresh-cut lilies and best of all, a patio door which opened to the beautiful, green, hotel grounds.

The hotel breakfast was fantastic and was a great way to start the day, Scottish style! The hotel also features a restaurant and bar, so it’s completely possible for guests to have a relaxing stay, without having to venture out. However, there are plenty of things to see nearby, as the ruins of the original Huntly Castle are a just a stone’s throw away, as is the lovely town of Huntly. Furthermore, the hotel is also located less than a half-hour away from the Malt Whisky Trail, to include the world-famous Glenfiddich Distillery. In any case, the hotel owners are at your disposal to provide further travel suggestions.

The Castle Hotel Huntly owners and staff are truly phenomenal and their passion for hospitality is extremely evident. If we had it to do over again, we would have stayed for a minimum of 2 nights. Our stay was absolutely divine and we truly hope that we’ll have the opportunity to stay here in the future, should we have the chance to visit Scotland again!

We had a marvellous time at the monthly Sunday carvery buffet, celebrating my mother's 90th birthday. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and the food was extremely good indeed. It was a perfect spot for a family celebration.

We stayed here in August as a central location to do some exploring of the castle and whisky country and were very pleased with our stay. It is walking distance (over a pretty little creek) to Huntly Castle and located in a serene quiet location. Food was good, great service at the bar (with lots of whisky choices you can't get here in the US), and the staff is very attentive.

The Castle Hotel in Huntly is a great hotel,set in huge grounds, with loads of walks available and very conveniently located with easy access from the A96. The staff are exceptional, quick, obliging and very attentive and the owners are welcoming and very friendly. The rooms are great,the public areas first class and the food in the dining room at both dinner and breakfast was excellent. This is a great spot for a three/four night stay in the whisky trail area of Scotland as it is so well located.

My colleague's and I stayed here for three night's I have to say I found no fault anywhere food accommodation cleanliness service where first class and It has to be one of the most tranquil places i have ever stayed in my life, apart from the breeze brushing against trees that have been there hundreds of years and a few birds chirping you could be the only person on the planet,Huntly Castle is at the bottom of the road from the castle and over the bridge spanning the river take your camera there is some stunning scenery then you come to ruins of Hunly Castle the home of the Gordon Family at one time the area is steeped in history,it would be a priviledge to stay here again.
