A quality hotel with two sophisticated bars. Haut cuisine is served in these and in the restaurant. Staff is attentive and provides good service. For an expensive hotel, the lack of a guest lounge is disappointing. Spacious suites are shown on the website. Our room, although well appointed, was a bit undersized.
We booked a couple nights in May on our month long visit to Scotland in a ‘Deluxe King’ room at the Station Hotel which is a charming, small hotel. Our room, #201 did not have a king bed but rather a queen(?). This really wasn’t an issue as a queen was fine with us and the room would never have been able to fit a king bed!! Unfortunately as tastefully decorated and accessorized as the room is, it was very cramped and small. There wasn’t a luggage rack because there was no room for one. The room is great if you arrive with carry-on bags, not so great if you have a couple pieces of luggage plus carry-on. Wi Fi signal is excellent, there is no A/C so summer may be warm but it was fine during our stay. There is a fan in the room. Parking is easy on the street. Housekeeping staff are excellent – no problem requesting Kleenex for the room. Everything is spotless. Breakfast is comprised of a menu that includes eggs benedict, traditional Scottish breakfast, omelet, porridge, fruit bowl, etc. The bar area has a vast array of whiskies to try and it is an inviting room. There isn't a lot of choice in this area of Scotland for accommodation.…
I visited with my daughter and partner for an evening meal in the hotel restaurant. The food was incredible and the staff went above and beyond with their service. If you are in the area you must visit
This a gem of hotel convenient to many of Speyside’s best distilleries. The hotel has spacious rooms with muted decor and local art. The free breakfast was incredible. There is an all day lunch menu and the delicious dinner menu has many local ingredients. The staff is kind and helpful. There are nice walking trails along the river. Best of all is the hotel’s 500+ whisky collection, available 24 hours! I highly recommend this hotel.
After a family event all gathered here for a private finger buffet lunch . The quality of everything provided was just excellent , everyone enjoyed it and I’d be hard put to recall such a high standard finger buffet with its home made high standard sandwiches , sausage rolls , mini quiches , confectionary and more . The service was discrete and helpful . I also had a lunch snack in the bar on a different occasion which was good although small quantity for the price. Overall a place to return to for food .
Had a lovely evening meal at the Hotel. A faultless experience, staff, food, location fantastic. Furnished to a very high standard with comfortable surroundings. We were looked after extremely well by Georgia and Lonach. The hotel is highly reccomended when in and around the Speyside region.
Visited for a meal recently to celebrate a birthday, but was really disappointed with the menu. It’s very “aspirational” but restricted - 7 of the 10 mains were beef, and although quite tasty, did not hit the mark! Started were nothing to write home about, and desert choice was also very limited and poor. They are using local producers, which is admiral, but the only venison was in a starter, the only fish in a main course, was sous vide. No pork or chicken featured at all. Will not be returning any time soon!
Visiting Speyside for a few nights, I opted for the Station Hotel. Initial impressions are good - the hotel is very well maintained. The guest room was perfect for a short stay. On the smaller side but very nicely appointed. I was surprised to discover the hotel has been open in its current form for several years - it looks freshly renovated. Sleep quality was the main detractor. The hotel is located on a (for Rothes) busy road, and on my first floor road facing room you could feel the vibrations when a lorry drove by. Sound proofing between guest rooms is also deficient - with muffled conversations, tv noise, etc audible. I'd therefore suggest asking for a quiet room. The vegetarian options in the hotel restaurant were limited (so I only dined there once). Food was of a good quality. Breakfast was a la carte and also good. The highlight of the hotel for me was the whisky bar - an amazing selection for all budgets. I’ve tried whisky from every distillery in Scotland (including 36 silent ones) and they had several new expressions for me to explore.…
My partner and I stayed here for two nights over the Easter bank holiday weekend and we both couldn't fault it. We stayed in the Caperdonich suite and it is quite possibly the nicest room we have ever stayed in. Please book this room if you have the chance! We eat in the hotel on the Friday night and both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The steak cooked to perfection. Each menu choice is also paired with a dram which was a nice touch. The second night we got a chinese from 517 takeaway which is a 10 minute walk away, this was also very good. We visited the Glen Grant distillery (5 minute walk up the road) and strolled through the gardens which are beautiful, the weather couldn't have been better. I also visited Glenfiddich and Macallan, I would recommend booking in advance as both were very busy. The whisky lounge at Glenfiddich was my particular favourite. A great weekend away and I wouldn't hesitate to book again.…
Thoroughly enjoyed a return visit to this wonderful restaurant. Professional friendly service from the very beginning from the staff. Menu deserves time to read before making your choice it’s amazing. The devotion to supporting local and seasonal food reflects in the menu, well done. Presentation and delivery was exceptional. Best fillet steak ever. Thankfully, we are local and will be back.
