We have stayed at Craigellachie many times in the past but hadn't been for over seven years when the opportunity came up to re-visit. We knew it was under new management and the hotel had been refurbished and I have to say it has been done to a high standard. But a few things

Fantastic place , we were upgraded free of charge to the bigger suite and as you can see from the pics it was lovely. Lovely hotel and we would certainly return!

The breakfast had a good choice and it was a good base to go explore the area.

We were booked in here on Business and were also booked for food. We were a party of 7. First impressions count and the large warm fire as we entered made us all feel welcome and was respite from the awful weather outside - gales and rain. We were quickly checked in without any f

My wife and I went here after a day driving and visiting distilleries. We liked the Copper Dog food and ambience so much, we went back the following night. I had a variation on the local haggis, neeps and tattie dish - so good I had it two nights in a row, the first as an entree,

The Craigellachie hotel is a traditional Scottish hotel with a modern twist.

Hello, I was wondering if its true the rooms don't have air conditioning? Is this a big problem? Many thanks in advance.
No they do not have AC and very few hotels in Scotland do. Probably only the new ones. Normally you do not need AC in Scotland unless it is a summer like this one. If road noise is an issue, bring ear plugs. I had the windows open and I was fun, esp. since I am sensitive to the heat.

Are they still painting the interior of the hotel
the painting was not the problem for us , it was the poor attitude , road noise ( which cannot be avoided ) , the dirty rooms , restaurant and bar . We visited the Station hotel in Rothes at the weekend & the ambience , service & dining was of a far far higher standard . but if you book to stay book a suite towards the back as it is also on the road . The cooperage at Aberlour is definitely worth a visit & Glenfiddich visitor centre .. further afield Elgin Cathedral ( ancient ruins ) & Lossiemouth beach / walk to lighthouse is wonderful too . have a great trip .

I was just wondering if this hotel has ever been five stars
"Go for a room that overlooks the river not the road!"
"Last time my 1st floor room was fab. This time my garden level room was not so good. A bit tired and dated."
"do not sleep at back of hotel very noisy main road from Dufftown"
"Upstairs facing the river: quiet with views. Ground floor facing the river: obstructed views. Facing the road: possible noise and no views."
"Standard rooms are on the road- too warm to have window closed."
