We had a delightful stay at Coul House. Staff were top notch, well trained and helpful. It is a classy and very comfortable place, elegant and restful in a non intimidating way. We had a large luxurious bathroom - rooms are decorated to a high standard. Dinner was delicious (scallops starter and Aberdeen Angus fillet for main). Breakfast equally tasty...

My husband and I were very excited to visit Coul House only to find the room provided was average at best and the owner and his wife were rude and unpleasant to us from the start.

Coul House is a lovely property. Room was large and bed was comfortable. Bathroom was exceptionally small. It was very narrow and impossible for two people even just to pass. Dining room food was very good and service was "spot on". It was our first experience of ordering in the bar prior to dinner and then being escorted to the...
