We visit this glorious establishment frequently and have never had a bad experience. Warm, clean, friendly, with welcoming hosts and wonderful food. Claude and her team have invested a lot of themselves in this venture and it shows. Would heartily recommend to everyone. Booking advised.

Less than an hour from Aberdeen city, and perhaps only 45 minutes from the airport, but worth a lot longer trip than that. A 100+ year-old house surrounded by fantastic gardens and next to a 700+ year-old ruined castle. Fabulous food, attentive service, great rooms. If you expect "all mod-cons", then perhaps this is not the place for you. But...

I had a very pleasant experience here, staying for a couple of nights. The room was recently refurbished, and the overall décor /ambiance of the hotel is very impressive, as the reception rooms all retain the original carpentry- dating from when the hotel was a grand private home, owned by a local industrialist. The standard of service and cuisine was...

Had a wonderful time at this hotel; service was very good, the room was delightful, and the food was quite delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed are stroll through the adjoining gardens and hope to stay again during our next visit to Scotland.

Ive stayed a few times often to get away from the madness of the Aberdeen hotel market and never regretted the drive. The last time I stayed on a leisure visit and was able to...

Our second visit here, and its the same fantastic place. The two ladies running this beautiful hotel make it so pleasant to stay in. All the public rooms are so nice - just sit there and enjoy. The whole place is well heated. It was our best 3 days in Scotland.

What can I say, just had a beautiful weekend away in this highland retreat. The hotel is situated just about 30 miles outside Aberdeen in the underrated Don valley. Its a further 18 miles up to the Lecht ski centre and reasonably close to the East Highland towns of Alford and Huntly. The hotel is reached by a long drive...

Stayed for one night and had dinner. The food was phenomenal, the service exceptional and a fantastic room overlooking a 13th century castle. 10/10 for this place. I would say that the meal I had was was the best meal I have ever eaten. The hotel is very tastefully decorated. I definitely will be staying over again. Only fault I...

Stunningly beautiful location and elegant Scottish country house thoroughly let down by poorly trained European staff and poorly cooked and presented French bistro food. We were expecting a warm Scottish country hotel experience with locally sourced food and highland recipes.not bouef bourbon on or coque au vin. The staff were polite but with only four other couples staying at the...

Claude, Elise and Fiona are friendly, caring and fun. They provide the most welcoming atmosphere, along with the heritage and history of Kildrummy Castle Hotel. The hotel is decorated tastefully, keeping in tune with it's heritage and history. The rooms are beautiful, and the view of the ruins of Kildrummy Castle are exquisite. This hotel is ideal for a stay...
