I simply can’t begin to express how wonderful our stay at Dowans House was. From the moment we pulled into the drive, we were knocked off our feet. The hotel is simply gorgeous, inside and out. We were greeted by Becky who briefly showed us around the ground floor before escorting us to our extremely comfortable room. The bed was hands down the most comfortable we had slept in throughout our entire trip to Scotland. The bathroom was clean, and the provided soaps, lotions, shampoos etc were high quality. We couldn’t ask for more.

Heading downstairs to await our dinner reservation, Becky again looked after us. She is a wealth of knowledge and suggestions for whiskies and we availed ourselves of her skill several times during our stay. Speaking of dinner, we were quite impressed. We opted both nights for the special. The quality and presentation was absolutely fine dining. The meals exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was the same. Delicious menu options that were cooked and presented beautifully.

As we were there only two nights, there’s not much more I can say except next time we travel to Scotland, we will absolutely choose Dowans House again.

Had the opportunity to dine with friend's, is a wonderful old hotel overlooking a valley in Aberlour.
Strange that you sit in the bar & order your dinner from the menu then move through to the dinning room.
Overall the experience was good though found the menu items to be a little expensive, had the 8oz Scotch, found to be a little tough for Scottish Beef.
Whisky Bar is very well stocked & worth the experience.

Love this family run boutique hotel. Clean, beautifully and tastefully appointed. The lounge is cozy before or after dinner while sampling their wide array of scotches. The restaurant top quality with excellent service and elegant dinner menu. Breakfast room available too. Lovely gardens and gorgeous view of the nearby farmlands. Highly recommend!

This is one of the best hotels in Scotland. Beautiful, spacious rooms, excellent modern bathrooms, fantastic whisky list, nice staff, great restaurant. This is the perfect place ( and only great place) to stay in whisky country.

Very beautiful room! High end fixtures, furniture and bathroom. My husband particularly enjoyed the TV in the bathroom! Very good breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. Only complaint is the lobby is very dark! Could cause some issues with those with sight imparements.
