We had a really lovely stay here and would highly recommend. The room was warm and welcoming and the food was excellent. The setting is lovely and quiet, but within easy reach of the distilleries. We hope to be able to return if we are in the area again.

The old stone house has an ancient-looking exterior with distinctive and well-appointed interiors that are up-to-date without seeming "modern". Our room was large and comfortable and the living room was warm and relaxing. The fireplace in the kitchen is a... More

We much enjoyed our three nights at Cardhu Country House - a very comfortable and well-appointed Victorian manse in an enviable location. Our bedroom was spacious and very comfortable with a large and well-fitted en-site shower-room. The dining room and the lounge are also impressive rooms. The breakfasts and the two evening meals that we had were very good. No... More

Dave was very welcoming. The room was clean, big and welcoming. The location is perfect and close to a number of whiskey distilleries. Cardhu country house is perfect for a peaceful and relaxing escape.

Spent 4 wonderful nights at this lovely, nicely restored B&B. A great location for exploring Speyside and the distilleries. Accommodations very comfortable and the hosts were wonderful...congenial and helpful. Lovely food and we particularly enjoyed the cozy fires every morning and evening. Would certainly recommend the Cardhu Country House for anyone looking for a few days respite in lovely Speyside.

Stayed in a double en suite room. What a nice place. Clean, beautiful and picturesque. The hosts are very dedicated and knowledgable. The breakfast was great with jam I could eat all day long. They have restored and decorated the property and are planning on expanding to outbuildings for self catering. The location is in itself fairly remote, but also... More
