Overview

A luxurious stay at a recently refreshed baronial mansion estate and golf course, with an afternoon tea

The Lowdown

Fresh off a multimillion-dollar upgrade and named the 2014-15 AA Hotel of the Year for Scotland, the four-star Meldrum House Country Hotel & Golf Course is riding high on a wave of well-deserved buzz. This 13th-century baronial mansion in the Aberdeenshire countryside oozes historic charm – its original halls are dotted with grandfather clocks and old oil portraits – while keeping you comfortably ensconced in modern luxury.
This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning country hotel boasts one of the world’s most extensive collections of Glen Garioch whisky and an 800-year-old Cave Bar, so fiery tipples are yours for the taking. The restaurant, too, draws rave reviews, serving up hyper-local dishes like Sutherlands of Portsoy salmon and Highland venison. There’s also a world-class golf course, so whether you’ve come to enjoy an indulgent escape filled with eating and drinking or an active getaway to one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, you’re sure to have an unforgettable time.

Rooms

The brand-new Club rooms are the crown jewels of the newly completed, multimillion-dollar wing added onto the original 13th-century manor house. The neutral color palette complements the stunning greenery just outside the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Dining

The hotel’s kitchen turns out elegant, inventive dishes that highlight the freshest seasonal ingredients. From a Scottish charcuterie plate, to west-coast scallops to the popular Sutherlands of Portsoy salmon platter, dinner is always a satisfying affair. Days start equally strong with a full Scottish breakfast.

Location

Situated in the Scottish countryside about 35 minutes outside of Aberdeen, Meldrum House lives up to its name as a luxurious country hotel. It’s surrounded by parkland – there’s even a swan pond and a highland cow – and a world-class golf course designed by Graham Webster. It’s about a one-mile walk into the village of Olmedrum, where you’ll find a few shops and cafés.
