We are sorry that we only had one night here! Dave and Val were very welcoming, top- notch customer service and attention to detail. Our room (Glenlivet) was excellent. Lots of space, super-comfy bed and lovely shower room. Our evening meal and breakfast, all freshly cooked, was delicious. The location is beautiful and very peaceful. Thankyou for a brilliant stay. We would highly recommend Cardhu Country House Hotel.

We stayed for 5 nights touring the local distilleries and sightseeing. What a fantastic place to stay! Our room was on the top floor, with lots of space and a nice view. Nicely renovated bathroom. Comfy bed. But the surprising hi lite was the food! Their 3 course dinner for £30 was phenomenal. We only ate somewhere else once. But you need to book dinner ahead so reserve for an arrival dinner. You won’t regret it.

Exceptional, friendly stay with the warmest of welcomes in this lovely home on the Whisky Trail, close to The MacAllan experience. Beautiful room, comfortable bed. Food excellent. Fortunate to also have an evening meal which far exceeded many restaurants. Breakfast and evening meal served in the lovely dining room with an open fire. Will return and recommend.

This is our second time visiting this amazing B&B. Dave and Val Stewart are the ultimate hosts; we appreciate their care and hospitality. The rooms are delightful, clean, large and well equipped. Breakfast is wonderfully organized and presented, and we suggest you sign up for a dinner during your stay. The property is very central if you are planning whisky tours, and also very central for restaurants in other small towns. We can't say enough about this remarkable property and its hosts.

Our friends booked this place and we piggy backed off their plans, and we were all (8 of us) very, very pleased! Dave and his wife Val have something very special at Cardhu Country House. They were very accommodating; they remembered all of our names and my husband being vegan, Dave was proactive to offer him breakfast he knew would follow his diet. The trails leading from the house to other areas of Speyside were just beautiful. It’s too bad we didn’t realize until it was too late how many distilleries we could walk to from this spot! The room was absolutely lovely and cozy, and their attention to comfort but also staying true to this being their full time home was impeccable. I’m not sure I’ll ever make it back to Speyside again, but I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it to friends and family.

excellent location close to many of the popular distilleries and a 5 mins walk from Cardhu well done up kept and maintained by our gracious hosts i am so glad we could spend a night though we got in after 9pm and check out time is 10 am they made us a simple English breakfast, everything fresh from the pan to the table each room is decorated differently, the Glenlivet is highly recommended.

Myself and a friend stayed here for the weekend while we visited a couple of the local distilleries. David and Val our hosts were so friendly during our stay, great breakfast and we also stayed for an evening meal one of the nights which was also spot on, the house itself self was perfect and in a beautiful location, would love to stay here again one day, thank you David and Val for a lovely stay.

We stayed with Dave and Val in the Tamdhu room. The house is well looked after and simply beautiful. We had such a nice stay, we didn’t want to leave. Dave and Val welcomed us in like we were family. If they have a room available, look no further. Make sure you book in to have dinner. The food is all freshly made and home cooked. It was one of the best meals we had in two weeks in Scotland, beating out some Michelin experiences. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Best B&B I have ever stayed in! So 5 star hotels could learn a thing or too, from this couple. Bloody amazing breakfast the white pudding melt in mouth and the whisky porridge was to die for. Everything was perfect, the biggest most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Would 100% recommend if you want a fantastic stay well worth money.

I am so glad we chose to stay here. It is not too far off of the beaten path, but enough that it feels like a quiet oasis to return to at the end of the day. Really lovely hosts (Val and Dave) and absolutely wonderful food (breakfast and dinner). It was great that there was dinner available upon request and so convenient to have that option at the end of a long travel day. Distillery and walking paths very close-this served as a good base for visiting Speyside Distilleries and other attractions. We stayed in the Macallan Room-so comfortable and lovely. Thank you Dave and Val for making this a wonderful part of our vacation.
