“a special treat”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

the bunchrew hose is a true gem situated a few miles from the city centre it is approached by a long drive down through the woods and along the shore to,attractive grounds and a fantastic position alongside the waters edge the house is a piece of old scotland the staff are very welcoming and helpful the room i had was very nice with a 4 poster bed windows on 3 sides overlooking the grounds reasonably sized lcd tv ,fridge,all the usual fascilities(resident ghost ect)nice bathroom just a point old house so no lifts here nice bar and drawing room leading to the dining room the food is set menu a la carte which was excellent but the icing on the cake is the fantastic scenery out of the large window, views across the water to the black isle and a sunset just over the distant mountains priceless, the hotel is especially ideal for honeymooners/romantic breaks or like me business trips a word of warning though the resident ghost an old women of challenging apearance whoose portrait hangs by the door, i made a derisory comment along with the receptionis,t and the front door banged loudly closed she said she must have heard us!you have been warned.

Room Tip: possibly ask for 4 poster rooms and water side view although grounds are attractive too

What can I say!!!
My son's wedding 26th May at the bunchrew house hotel..
We arrived on the Friday afternoon and were quickly shown to our rooms-my younger son-well travelled- stated"this is the best hotel I've been in"..
What an atmosphere and what glorious weather too!!
Day two (wedding day) & my son and his wife to be were lucky enough to marry under the 400 year old tree...outdoors...no-one wanted to venture indoors so the entertainment came outdoors:)..after which a fantastic wedding feast- faultless from begining to end!
Delightful fairytale wedding ...staff very friendly& also happy with the extreme heat!
All in all a delightful weekend...
Yes could do with updating....though not at the expense of too much modernisation-
Thinking of a wedding in this beautiful location-a big thumbs up from a very happy mother/mother-in-law...

A stunning location and stunning service. The hotel is a little faded in places, and they really need to choose another colour for the exterior - pink really doesnt do it! The carpet is a bit threadbare on the stairs and our room could have done with a makeover. The bathroom especially was a wonderfully large space but with a standard sized bath, weak shower and plain toilet wasting the opportunity. It is crying out from some money spent on it. However the room was generally really nice, large, and comfortable for 2 adults and 2 kids. Plus the staff were uniformly amazing and the breakfast one of the best I've ever had. So definately recommend this place but please spend some money on doing it up!

We stayed only one night, hotel itself look quite isolated, but it is only 5 min by taxi or car to the first pub (or any sign of city). First impression after seeing room- slightly tired, but with great view, milk in the fridge, homemade shortbread and good bathroom our feeling went away. Bar and lounge are just wow: chimney-corner, lots of magazines and good whisky you can feel as at home.

Stayed 3 nights, went away for a while and went back for another 3 nights. We stayed in Coulmore and Cedar, both big and comfortable.Coulmore has an amazing view over the Firth, whereas Cedar has a four poster and we were able to pick up the Wifi signal from the drawing room.
The bar and the drawing room are both lovely areas to sit and read, have tea, a drink, play games etc. Not at all stuffy.
The staff at Bunchrew are outstanding. Everyone treats you so well and they seem to care that you are enjoying your stay. They are attentive but give you space. There is a guy from the Isle of Skye (I think his name is Steven) who is one of the best hosts I have ever met. Truely exceptional.
We found the hotel to be a good base from which to drive around and explore the Highlands. We left thoroughly relaxed and can't wait to return.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. This place is so beautiful and inspiring. It's surrounded by beautiful trees and looks out over the most gorgeous body of water.

The inside is lovely and like stepping back into an old world in another time. From the moment you pen your name into the guest log as you check in, to sitting in the dining room surrounded by paintings of the family who once resided in the manor, you'll feel like you're in a old timey movie with classy surroundings.

The staff could not do enough for us, the bar was very cool with fire place and nice selection of drinks and our room with 4 poster bed was gorgeous. Oh and the food was to die for!

Stay here - you won't regret it. :)
