We were a golfing party. The rooms were very clean and well decorated, with great attention to detail.The beds extremely comfortable and our wet golfing stuff was all taken away to be dried very efficiently. The food was lovely, 4 courses but not too heavy and beautifully cooked. There was a lovely sitting room with an open fire. The only...

We stayed here in April for 2 nights. After travelling for years throughout UK this was the best. Only do you occasionally find somewhere that everything was memorable - quality, comfort, service & food. Well this was it in a nutshell. Can't grade this highly enough - do not miss the amazing steak.

We four (family of three with 22-year old daughter's friend) traveled from Switzerland, met good British friends, and toured Scotland for a week. Culdearn House is a haven of warmth, extraordinary comfort and style (best showers and water pressure in Scotland??) and lovely food. We would return in a second. We spent two nights, with the usual wild April weather...

Many thanks indeed for writing this lovely, positive review. We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay here at Culdearn which was, in your words, a 'haven of warmth'. Despite the awful weather we were pleased that you were able to 'sample' some of Speyside's delights and experience the hospitality of the Highlands. We must thank you...

Stayed with visitors for one night, very comfortable well appointed rooms with extra touches, my visitors loved it! Very good dinner, and breakfast! After heavy snowfall next morning path was cleared to enable access to cars was a huge help! Excellent service!

Thank you for your kind comments regarding your recent stay. We are pleased that you and your guests were comfortable. We were all amazed at the amount of snow that fell in the night and it was good early morning exercise clearing the driveway in time for everyone's departure.

I stayed at Culdearn for 3 nights, DBB. The hotel is a beautiful house on the way into Grantown from Aviemore direction, therefore ideally placed. Aviemore is worth avoiding if you can and Grantown is peaceful and pretty. Grantown is also close to skiing areas; many walks start from the front door, single malt distilleries and Royal Deeside aren't far....

We were greated at the door by Sonia and our reaction was she was very unfriendly. Our room was very well appointed, with a lovely large shower. The towels could have been of better quality for this type of establishment. Food was of excellent quality, our only complaint would be the vegetables were very basic in presentation and taste.
