“What a surprise”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

My company booked me in to Kiltearn House when I was working in Invergordon.
I arrived at night and then woke in the morning to see the fantastic setting that this place is in.
The house is beautiful and far higher quality accommodation that you would expect for the money. The rooms are comfortable and very nicely decorated Superb service and excellent food, do have an evening meal if you have the opportunity. I only wished I was there for longer than the 2 nights.. If you are travelling to the North dont miss this .

As a seasoned traveller, I spend a lot of time in various hotels and have never been compelled to take the time out to submit a review until now! Stayed at Kiltearn House in December 2012, it is an absolutely beautiful setting, the house is elegantly and tastefully decorated and the ensuite room was very comfortable, and provided everything you could wish for (including ample desk space for working!). The hosts Ed and Nel are so welcoming really go the extra mile in making sure you have everything you need. The food is absolutely 'out of this world' - a real treat, I would go back for the food alone!
Whether you are wanted a quiet or romantic retreat or simply looking for somewhere peaceful to stay whilst on business - this is definitely the place to be!

I stayed at Kiltearn House with my fiance on the evening of the 8th December 2012 and had the most fantastic time.

The stay was truly special and memorable as I proposed to my future wife whilst there.

If you are looking for a peaceful, tranquil, relaxing and serene setting then you will not be dissapointed. The house it's self has a certain ambience and grandeur but not in an austentatious way.

The food was delicious and of a very high quality - Both evening meal and the fantastic breakfast as well.

Everything is maticulously clean, well organised and you are treated like royalty by the extremely hospitable Ed and Nel.

We've already booked up for the anniversary of our engagement and more than likely will be back before that.

Wonderful stay at Kiltearn House with very attentive hosts, Ed and Nel. Location is situated on the shores of the loch and the only sounds were the lapping of the waves on the shoreline. Very comfortable rooms and food was excellent. Would definitely stay again and would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful base off the beaten track. A wee gem

We stayed here in November 2012 for a meeting in Invergordon. It's a beatiful situation, right by the shore of the loch.The house is a former manse (Victorian) and the rooms are well - proportioned, spotless & extremely comfortable. It was lovely & warm, the towels fluffy, bedlinen crisp and breakfast superb. Best of all the hosts make people feel welcome. My husband asked me not to write a review as he didn't want the place spoiled by hordes of folk! But they deserve top billing and we hope to be back in the not too distant future. Many thanks to you both.

We enjoyed our stay at Kiltearn House. Our room was lovely with a fabulous view. Breakfast was delicious (it was wonderful to be able to select from an extensive breakfast menu the previous evening). Kiltearn House is in a wonderful setting, just off the beaten track, but near enough to other local facilities.

We stayed at the Kiltearn House for 2 nights whilst my partner ran the Loch Ness marathon. Ed and Nel were fantastic hosts and made us both feel very welcome. It is obvious that they both put a lot of hard work and effort into the Kiltearn House, the rooms are spotlessly clean, the food is excellent (we had dinner and breakfast) and their attention to detail made our stay most enjoyable. We will definitely be recommending the Kiltearn House to family and friends as a great base to explore the surrounding area.

Thank you Ed and Nel, we hope to stay with you again in the not so distant future!
