I had zero complaints here. Facility was beautiful, our room came with a view of the castle in the distance. Staff literally would run up water on a platter, or coffee for me. I felt as if I were the only customer (we weren't). A bit out of the way to find but well worth it. The food at property... More

I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. Our family planned a trip to Scotland and part of the itinerary included the Lonach Highland Gathering & Games in nearby Strathdon. Because I waited until two months before our trip to book, I discovered that all the hotels in the area were booked full except for the Kildrummy Castle Hotel. I... More

Arrived on a beautiful sunny afternoon, so quickly dumped our bags in our room and headed out to sit on the lawn and enjoy a couple of yummy cocktails in the sunshine. After a quick change we headed for dinner which from Amuse bouche to dessert was faultless! All washed down with a lovely and very reasonably priced white Rioja.... More

12 Cyclists descended on the staff. Luckily we booked so no dramas apart from the booking did not include my gluten free diet. Oh dear! The staff were very helpful and managed to rustle up a very tasty lunch. Thanks. The only bit of criticism was that the other guys could have done with a bigger serving...but that is probably...

I come here since 27 years. Stunning house. As a hotel excellent. After many changes of management, the restaurant is now run by a young team of gastronomic ignorants. Come with limited expectations please. Try the filet steak, even they cannot get it wrong.
