Reviewed 17 March 2013

We had a really enjoyable stay at Docharn Lodge, the proprietors were warm, genuine and very hospitable. Breakfast which was a very high standard , and mostly local produce a good range of choice, sustained us for the whole day.
As for the room, the bed crispy cotton bed covers and how big was the bed? Bathroom, ultra stylish, the small details including with the toiletries and complimentary gifts made me feel valued.
Have to also add loved the under foot warmth of the underfloor heating!
Oh, and the coffee and home made cakes upon arrival. Enough said!
Definitely going back.

Since you were here, we have had some really great skiing weather! So glad you enjoyed the
Cairngorm Mountains - we're on the lookout for some skis for 'Edski the Eagle'
Thank you for this great review, we look forward to seeing you again later in the year.

Fantastic B&B, we couldn't have wished for anything more; the bed was extremely comfortable, everything immaculately clean. Would recommend and would love to return. Thanks to our wonderful wonderful hosts Catriona and Neil.

One night away in this amazing guest lodge and my husband and I came away feeling like we’d been away for weeks. From the moment we arrived Catriona and Neil were the most wonderful hosts, so welcoming and willing to cater for our every need (should we need anything), nothing was too much trouble.. the tea and cake on arrival was an added surprise! It’s clear to see that Catriona and Neil have thought of everything and the property reflects all their hard work to create a stunning guest house. Our room was fantastic, the bed was so big I literally never wanted to get out of it. Docharn has the most spectacular views from every angle, it’s the most tranquil, beautiful place we’ve ever stayed at and we’ve already booked another week for later in the year. I cannot recommend this place enough.

Thank you for your wonderful review, you are so kind. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to your return in May - along with the bikes for your 'intensive' training week, and maybe a bit of golf?
Best regards, Catriona and Neil

My wife and I have just spent four nights at Docharn Lodge. When we arrived Catriona made us very welcome with a cup of tea and a lovely piece of home made cake. Our room was lovely and the views from the lounge are superb. We got a great breakfast in the morning which kept us going all day. We will be going back.

We have stayed at Docharn Lodge for 5 nights back in August 2012. Everything was perfect. The location is fantastic near whatever is needed for a perfect relaxing holiday in the middle of the nature. The house is so well designed and decorated, we have been really impressed. Catriona and Neil are so nice and friendly and helpful. The nicest hosts we have ever seen. Thank you for everything! Can't wait to go back someday!

I stayed for 3 nights here while on a training course at the end of November/beginning of December, never a good time because of snow. The weather was freezing but the temperature in the house was well balanced without being dry from central heating. When Catriona opened the front door, my eyes said "oh wow" and when I saw my room the same again. I never sleep well away from my own bed but this was the most comfortable bed next to my own and I slept like one of the logs on the wood burning stove! The en suite was the last word in luxury with Moulton Brown toiletries. I could have been on another planet. Catriona and Neil were such attentive hosts, nothing was too much trouble. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. 100% recommended.

I stayed for one night at the Docharn lodge and really enjoyed it. I arrived quite late and had to leave early in the morning so it was really quick! I really want to come back in the summer when there's longer days so I can explore the area some more.
The hosts were great and my room and the public areas were great. Very modern and clean!
If I'm going up to the north of Scotland I'm definitely staying there again!
Thanks Johanna
