As guests in the hotel we enjoyed breakfast (included in tariff) and dinner over three days. Several guests were local and regulars at Coul House so there only for dinner.

We ate in the dining room in the evening and nothing was too much trouble. The waiting staff were very attentive, but not intrusive, just perfect.

My family and I visited coul house on a Saturday afternoon for some tea and cake. We had not booked and were seated no problem. Our tea came first followed by a long wait for our cakes so we had to ask for some fresh tea as it had gone cold whilst we waited. The cakes were good but the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us when we visited a local distillery. We were immediately struck by the beautiful gardens, and welcoming staff. We enjoyed tea and cocktails in the gazebo and took a short walk through the enchanted fairy and scary trail. When it started to rain we moved into the cozy bar and ordered from the varied menu....

Unfortunately we only stayed one night at the hotel but based on our experience will be back for longer. Dinner was superb and after three weeks touring Scotland I can honestly say it was up there with the best. The dining room was lovely and the only difficulty was deciding what to choose from the mouthwatering menu. There was a... More

The setting in the octagonal dining room is a huge advantage for dining here, but the food is also of very high quality. And it is imaginative.

Really good food in a really good setting. Hotel was busy which was good to see, but nothing was too much trouble for the staff and service was excellent. I've been before and it's great to see standards being maintained, and improved over the years.

We were here for 4 days during our Nat Hab Scotland Tour. Hotel grounds are gorgeous, and the food was perfect. The staff did a stellar job of taking care of our group of 15. All of our meals were superior / our compliments to the chef. Great place to have as a home-base for exploring this part of Scotland,... More
