“Great”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Everything was amazing.
Staff, accommodation, environment and food - it is absolutely exceptional!!
Hotel is placed alone in the woods, yet near the village.
Very friendly bar is where you are waiting for dinner. Is equally pleasant discussion with the waiter about foods.

Really enjoyed Coul House. Food was just excellent at both the dinner and the breakfast. Room fairly spacious and clean with views over the hills. Not much in Contin but central to travel ariund in the area and only couple of miles from Strathpeffer

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Coul House Hotel. We were up north continuing our search for a plot and stayed here for the weekend. Words cannot describe how tranquil this hotel is and everyone was so attentive and friendly. The food is the best we have tasted in a long time and the location for us was fab. It was my husband's birthday so such a lovely touch with a card and complimentary fizz, thank you!! I don't know how many stars this hotel has been awarded by the Scottish Tourist Board but it gets 5 stars from us and we will definitely be back and would urge anyone looking for a lovely highland break to look no further, you will not be disappointed!!

We stayed here for two nights while visiting friends in the area. The owners were helpful from phoning to book onwards, reserving a room for us which would have plenty of space for us and our (large) dog.
The room was a little worn in places but well equipped and comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent and lasted us well past lunch. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, to us and our dog, and the whole house had a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The dog particularly enjoyed the open fire in reception!

I'm sure we'll be back

We have just returned from 3 days at Coul House Hotel. We were welcomed by Stuart the owner who made us feel at home immediately. We sat next the log fire in the lounge whilst Stuart answered all of our questions about where to go, what to do and anything else we cared to ask. This was our first visit to Scotland and wanted to get a real flavour of the place. We were very lucky to be able to pick Susannah's (the lady of the house) brains the next day for more information. To summaris: The hotel is impressive but not intimidating. The team are incredibly attentive but have mastered achieving a high level of service without becoming an annoyance. The food is top quality but not fiddly or pretentious. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and the view is stunning. All of these things mean that I would recommend this hotel to anyone and we will certainly be back.

This is a beautiful boutique hotel with charming sitting rooms and lounge and library, plus a sizable garden. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children and stayed here for three nights. Among the many things we like here, I would say the biggest plus of this hotel is that it is very child friendly - staff are very nice and quick to respond to children's needs at dinner/breakfast table, the garden has a lovely walking path full of interesting things for children to explore, plenty of play ground type of space outdoors for children to play, etc. The hotel recommended excellent babysitter for the two days when we were out playing golf. The owners know the area very well and they made some excellent suggestions of what we should see and do. For people who come with small children, this is a hotel you can't beat.

Room Tip: Because we were family, we had two rooms with connecting door. This worked out perfectly for us.

A lovely hotel in a fantastic location. We were staying for work, as we were involved with the Strathpuffer Mountain bike race.
It was the perfect location to stay, only 2 minutes drive from the event, or in my case a 5 minute run.
The staff were all fantastic, very friendly, polite, funny and attentive.
The atmosphere was great too, lovely wood fires in the hall and bars, with a good selection of beers and wines and spirits, that sadly i couldn't really indulge in!

The room was lovely, very comfortable, maybe a bit warm for me, but that was all.

The food was brilliant, very well presented, incredibly tasty, and was full both nights. Breakfast was equally good.

thank you all for a lovely stay, i hope to be back for a more leisurely stay.
