    Great bargain, fabulous stay. Would stay again!

    The Craigellachie Lodge was fantastic. Not only was it a good price, but the accommodations were fairly spacious, clean, and comfortable. This was our first of five nights in Scotland, and our room (The Spey) was large enough that we were able to unpack our bags, sort the provisions we bought for our road trip, and repack without getting frustrated by lack of space. Check in and check out were both simple and efficient, and our hosts were very friendly. The lodge was a short walk (just down the drive and across the street) to the Copper Dog. We're sorry we were too jet-lagged to enjoy the bar, but it looked super cozy. Breakfast was great- get the whisky and porridge!

    Fantastic lovingly restored period property a few minutes walk from the local village. Great friendly hosts and staff. Lovely breakfast, very peaceful. Great sized rooms and an onsite bar with some great whisky.

    A Wonderful Speyside Stay!

    A lovely hotel in a beautiful part of the world. We stayed in the Telford room which was roomy and very clean. The hotel is a characterful Victorian house that has been tastefully and sympathetically modernised. Scott and his team were very welcoming which added to our experience. Breakfasts were hearty and tasty. Tried a few drams from Scott’s collection and picked up a few tips and suggestions! We will be back in the future.

    We had a wonderful stay here. The hosts were amazingly friendly. There were lots of measures in place to make you feel safe while still having a lovely stay. The room was superb and the bed was so comfortable! Breakfast was also really good. The whole place was lovely, with beautiful gardens which guests can enjoy. Would definitely stay again.

    Lovely spot for a break

    We booked in to the Telford King room which we found clean, airy. The room was well decorated with a comfy bed and clean bedding. Water and a coffee machine were provided in the room along with DAB radio and WI-FI. The building itself is situated away from the road in nice secluded peaceful gardens. Our hosts were lovely and took the time to find us somewhere nice for dinner in nearby Rothes while we went for a walk in Aberlour. This was much appreciated as the whole of Aberlour was fully booked and we were in the mood for some fine dining. We both had the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon breakfast and a cafetière of coffee which were excellent.

    I only stayed one night but everything that they did, they did perfectly. The room was comfortable, the rest of the building was in perfect condition and felt homely. They even contacted me before my stay to ask about my preference of room. The breakfast was generous and cooked to perfection.

    The property has a lovely garden and you can walk to the hotels and pubs. Beth looked after us really well. Breakfast is nice and is ordered the night before. Our room was really large with a nice view on to the garden and fields. Amenities include coffee maker and hair straighteners. The bathroom could do with some updating but it was more then adequate and was also a large room.

    The property manager was very friendly and welcoming. The house is beautiful and extremely convenient to all the Speyside activities, distilleries, and roadways. We missed the entrance as it's quite difficult to see from the main road, but this can easily be remedied with a proper Google Maps update.
