Grantown on Spey has lots of special memories for me and staying somewhere nice was just as important. The Culdearn House Hotel was truly wonderful! From the moment we stepped in to the moment we left, we were made to feel like part of the family. William and Sonia were lovely. The room was fabulous, so clean, tidy and warm....

This was our 3rd trip to Culdearn House - we stayed for 2 nights in November visiting the cashmere sales and everything was perfect again - beautiful rooms, super comfy beds, welcoming, accommodating staff, lovely fire, fabulous food. Please continue the wonderful work you are doing Sonia and William as it really is top drawer!!

Very well looked after, food tremendous. Entertainment outstanding. Felt we were welcomed as part of the family. Sonia and family couldn't have been more attentive. Grantown on Spey a great centre for local walks and interest. Also exploring the places nearby. Hogmanay in the Square was music, dancing and fireworks. A truly memorable experience.

The combination of comfortable tastefully decorated rooms and the superb food make this hotel a great spot for a short break in Cairngom. A four course dinner each night with a large choice of wines (and whiskies) and a plentiful freshly cooked breakfast. By chance we had the dining room to ourselves (party of 4) so it was just like...

Spent a few nights here on our Scottish honeymoon - a thoroughly charming family home - the hosts were so welcoming and gave us loads of tips of where to go. We had a great time. Sonia is a cracking cook too - they must work unbelievably hard to keep everything clean and tidy, make amazing food and be wonderful...

Clean and well kept. Comfortable, quiet and peaceful. The food, served after generous G&Ts in the drawing room, is quite outstanding. But breakfast! Whatever you eat, have it with scrambled eggs - incredible, amazing, succulent and fresh. Highly recommended.

Twelve years after my first visit, we had an opportunity to visit Culdearn House again on June 8th, 2016. Still run by Sonia and William Marshall, still a fantastic home away from home. They even recognised me after all this time. I had been bragging to my travel companion about it during our trip, and she says I did not...

An immaculate hotel, with elegant décor and a warm welcome from the owners, Sonia and William. We enjoyed our third stay at this fabulous hotel in November 2015 and will definitely be returning. Sonia is a fantastic cook and uses locally sourced produce: the breakfasts are delicious and the dinners divine.The choice of wines and whiskies is wide and varied....

We revisited Culdearn in January and received the usual warm welcome on a very cold snowy night. Our room was very good and so warm on such a cold day, that we had to turn down the heating as we prefer a cooler bedroom. Dinner was very good as usual, but you need to be hunger as portions are generous,...
