I went here for a weekend. Stayed in dog friendly room which although away from main hotel, was very nice and very warm and comfortable. I only ate breakfast in hotel which was lovely with plenty of Choice. Staff were very pleasant.

The building has been beautifully restored and furnished to a very high standard. All rooms throughout the hotel have been decorated and furnished with a great attention to detail and comfort. Some staff were very helpful and friendly, others indifferent. Sadly, we felt that the hotel lacked any feeling of personality and warmth. The food was good, but not exceptional.

This is a lovely hotel! The rooms are beautiful, the service gracious and friendly, the location excellent for touring around, and the food delicious. I would love to return. I particularly enjoyed the common rooms and dining area, which were both pretty and comfortable.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Aviemore room in this beautiful hotel. The design and furnishings are immaculate and it is a place we looked forward to getting back to each night. The food was very good: we ate from the grazing menu (choosing to have this in the lounge in front of the log fire) as well as...

The new owners have invested heavily and to good effect the entire Hotel is warm, welcoming and very comfoirtable. Food choice is very good and reasonably priced, most diners should...

Absolutely beautiful country house hotel with a great staff. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed it tremenously. There are several options for lounging and drinks in the public rooms. And we had a great meal at the restaurant.

Having stayed at this lovely hotel during its opening week we decided to come back and see if we enjoyed it as much again. The answer was yes - we enjoyed everything about it, decor, food and its very helpful and friendly staff. I don't often post reviews but this one is to say that The Muckrach is excellent.

Some of our party were hunters and others were sightseers, and Muckrach was the perfect location for both. On arrival we discovered the hunting travel company in charge of those arrangements had not given us complete instructions, nor contacted Muckrach as we were told would happen. The staff at Muckrach immediately took matters into their own hands and within an...

Everything finished to a very high standard (carbon fibre door handles...
