Excellent service and charming hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed as a family in the low season. The hotel is beautiful and full of character. The views are gorgeous and so are the open fires. Delicious food, but, most importantly for a hotel in the UK, the staff were excellent and all spoke faultless English. Congratulations on retaining and training such great staff. We’d love to return one day.

A treasure in the Scottish Highlands

We booked for a long weekend stay in January and took up the "winter offer", from the minute I phoned to book the room, I knew this was going to be a special stay. The staff could not do more for you to make your stay more comfortable and make you feel like "King of the Castle"

Special thanks to Sandy and Dora for attending to our every need and William for his extensive knowledge of Wine, Port and of course Whiskey. Plus a huge thank you to all those behind the scenes that make this place run so smoothly.

Oh - and pre-book the private dining room before you go - made to feel so special

An exceptional experience

We spent one night at The Factors Inn, see separate review, but enjoyed afternoon tea, dinner and breakfast at the castle. Our stay was exceptional from immediately entering the castle you are given a warm welcome and made to feel at home. The castle state rooms are beautiful and grand and you can understand why Queen Victoria visited for a week. Service is in the manner of good old fashioned Scottish hospitality, extremely professional with a good dose of friendly warmth.

The afternoon tea was delicious and we felt the need for a walk around the grounds to work up an appetite for dinner. The grounds are lovely and are in a beautiful setting. For dinner we went for the 6 course tasting menu which is £95 with the wine pairing an additional £55, so not cheap. However, we were pleased we splurged out and we thought every course delicious and full of taste and interest from using the finest local ingredients. The wines were well paired and the measures were generous (the wines are on the expensive side so the £55 like reasonable value).

Breakfast was very good with again exceptional service and a good choice of options.

Jane the General Manager should be proud of what she and her team have achieved and they deserve to be rated as one of the best hotels in Scotland and are a credit to the Relaix & Chateaux family.

It earned the moniker “Jewel of the Highlands”

This baronial style castle is beyond beautiful. The blown glass chandeliers and ceiling frescos are something to marvel at as you sit beside a roaring fire. The staff could not have been more attentive and our suite was expansive. I have only two regrets , not dining formally with them & not spending more days to fully appreciate the grounds. The trails leading through the wood are worth a quiet walk. The billiard room has an Irish Elk mount, which is beyond cool for anyone interested in the Pleistocene. There is nothing quite as dramatic as an example of the largest cervine species to walk the earth. I will go back, hoping to engage in some of their sport offerings. This is a fantastic castle and well worth a stay.

Absolutely fantastic stay

Our stay this last week was just amazing. The staff were fabulous and attended to all our needs. The room was divine and the food was simply fantastic. We will certainly go back and it was just the break we needed in a damp January.
