Lovely old vicarage tastefully decorated with modern fresh bathrooms with soft bathrobes, living room for guests' use. Welcoming hosts who prepare beautifully prepared and cooked food (we had breakfast and supper). This place is a cut above the rest and should be in Alastair Sawday, if it isn't already. Wonderful views across walled garden to the mountains in the distance...

Two couples only stayed for one night. The accommodation is beautiful. The house is in the perfect location for visiting Cardu distillery. If the weather had been better we would have enjoyed sitting in the garden. Val's cooking is excellent. There is no restaurant within walking distance. Dave is an excellent host. Would stay again if in the area.

Dave and Val, we're wonderful HOSTS. Dinner was amazing all fresh seafood and Great Portions. So glad we opted in getting dinner here as there was not any place close to eat. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories after dinner. Breakfast was DELICIOUS. Room was spacious and overlooked the courtyard. Our hosts are doing a superb job in restoring this home....

we had a warm welcome from Dave and Val, always kind and available for us. Marvelous place for short stays, cozy and charming house, marvelous food. The walk to Cardhu Destilary gave us a marvelous feel of the Scotish countryside.

Sometimes you get surprised with a hotel and this happens here. Dave the owner is simply divine and such a good and friendly host. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. Everything works and in the right place. Great surroundings and good Scottish breakfast. Look no further. Book here. God my approval.

Thank you Val and Dave for a wonderful stay. Dave was very welcoming and Val's food was great. Little touches in the room and breakfast were impressive. If we returned to this area would definitely stay here!

This charming B&B is situated Speyside in the heart of Malt Whiskey country. Dave and Val are meticulous in their care of their establishment and their guests.

Cardhu Country House is outstanding in all aspects. It is set in glorious countryside and is beautifully appointed. Dave and Val provide a warm welcome, and the service is attentive without being intrusive, whilst the food is nothing short of superb. We highly recommend this guest house.
