An excellent country house hotel with real character (and red squirrels)

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Sept 2023
It was just as we hoped from the website and reviews. Very comfortable, excellent hosts, fantastic breakfasts. The rooms were beautifully deorated and furnished and the house exuded character dating back to its original owners Red squirrels on the front lawn when we were there, and a roe deer in the field over the road.

Thank you for sharing your experience of Tigh na Sgiath - both inside and outside! The Red Squirrels and the Roe Deer are lovely to see in the garden, hopefully we may have the opportunity of welcoming you both back to Tigh na Sgiath at some point in the future.

Absolutely lovely hotel. A quiet comfortable charm that was so relaxing and full of character with the wood panelling.
I loved the cosy corners with comfortable chairs to read quietly or have a cup of tea and one of their delicious cakes.
The bedroom was beautifully furnished in cottage style and was spacious.
Iain the host was very attentive and saw to our every need.
We will defiantly remember this country house hotel and come again.

One of the best places I've stayed in a long time. Very quiet, lots of wildlife, perfect to relax over a honeymoon or special trip. Not a far drive from Inverness or to Grantown on Spey for dinner and daytime activities. The owners, Iain and Elaine were a wealth of information for things to see and do in the area and some things to see on our next trip. Can't wait to stay again.

Room tip: Property accepts cash as payment.

Amazing small hotel (only 8 rooms). Friendly welcome from the minute we arrived.
Our dog was made very welcome and even got a bed and blanket left ready for him.
Breakfast was fantastic (pre ordered so we got just what we wanted).
Very very peaceful and a lovely comfy bed.

Room tip: Aviemore is a fairly close drive for an evening meal

We stayed as part of our honeymoon travelling Scotland with our dog and cannot recommend here enough! Iain and Elaine were fabulous hosts, very attentive and thoughtful. Breakfast options were fab and they had great recommendation on where to go/things to do. I really enjoyed that they remembered our names and our dogs name too, just a little touch but made us feel so welcome. We stayed in the room with the jacuzzi bath and it was just delightful after long days walking around the highlands! We will definitely be back and so glad we chose here as part of our honeymoon. Thanks so much again!

We cannot thank you enough for choosing Tigh na Sgiath to stay as part of your honeymoon! It was lovely that you were able to bring "Ronnie" on the trip as well - he was totally chilled! Hope to see you all again in the not too distant future, thanks again!

The reviews don't lie. This place is quite special.
Ian and Elaine went out of their way.
The breakfast was absolutely delicious with locally sourced food.
We had access to a fridge which was well needed.
The garden and surroundings are spectacular.
You have to drive to the local town (Grantstown) but there is a bus and taxi service.
We didn't know at the time but Ian and Elaine also provide afternoon tea (which we heard afterwards is lovely). Might be an option for a meal if you fancy staying nearby.
The four poster bed is lovely. Feels like you're transported back in time.
