The hotel is beautifully situated in scenic countryside, and retains traditional features which create a cosy atmosphere. There is access to the grounds and a pleasant walk down to the river which runs alongside the driveway. We received a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The food was very good and ingredients were sourced...

Extremely comfortable bed, large room with seating area by a sunny window, large ensuite, pleasant hosts, wonderful cocktails, great setting. We were more than satisfied with our stay and would stay there again when in the area. Did not partake of the dinner.

Had a lovely night in this hotel, only for one night as we were passing through. We have two daughters (9 &5) and they provided us with a big family room and the girls were thrilled with the bunk beds. Lovely staff, and a great breakfast!! Recommended.

We are glad you enjoyed Dalrachney's quiet setting and had a good night's sleep. The room you booked was a Double Room, which of course is a 4ft 6" bed. We do have King size and Super King size rooms if required. Archie does love welcoming the guests!

We were fortunate enough to select Dalrachney Lodge Hotel for an overnight stay as we toured Scotland. The owner was most courteous and helpful. Our dinner and breakfast were excellent. Dalrachney Lodge is on our list to make a return visit.

We only stayed one night, but were most impressed. It is an old hunting lodge that has been beautifully updated and the owners are most friendly, welcoming, and helpful.

What we look for in a scottish hotel are nostalgia, thick tartan carpets, and cosy atmosphere!! I've never seen a thicker more attractive tartan carpet on the stairs. The slow cooked venison was marvellous. We watched a mother deer and baby from our bedroom window. And the service was excellent. Thank you.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dalrachney Lodge is an independent family run Country House Hotel in Carrbridge in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. We recognise how precious your relaxation and holiday time is away from home and we aim to provide a tranquil environment in which to enjoy our wonderful surroundings. Dalrachney Lodge a former Edwardian Hunting Lodge, is set in 3 acre grounds within the Cairngorms National Park and rests directly beside our own 1 km stretch of the Dulnain River. Our Bistro menu features locally sourced food and a good selection of whiskies. We have Egyptian cotton bed linen, Heirlooms towels and Floris toiletries in all rooms. Our Superior rooms have handmade Savoir Super King size beds. Having taken over just two years ago, a substantial renovation project is ongoing which has seen our Drawing Room and Bar/Bistro refurbished and completion of two new bedrooms with new en-suite bathrooms. In March 2015 a biomass boiler system was installed and another two new bathrooms have been completed. Investment in the Hotel is continuing with work starting on updating more bathrooms later in the year and a self-catering cottage will be available for rental in the Summer. We hope you will come and enjoy our Scottish hospitality and all the Cairngorms has to offer. ... more   less
