Cardhu Country House
Ranked #1 of 6 Aberlour B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Beautiful contryside cottage in Aberlour, perfect base for hopping through all your Speyside distilleries. Val and Dave were the most gracious hosts and the dinner was so delicious that I can't even begin to describe... That lemon tart Meal preferences were asked for in advance and my vegetarian dietary requirements were more than well taken care of. All in all, loved our stay, only downside was that it was too short. Hope to be back again at some point! Thanks very much for the special touch added for my husband's birthday, meant a lot to us. Also best breakfast toast ever. One of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed at and we highly recommend this place.

Absolutely perfect. Only complaint is about US - we didn't spend nearly enough time here. Most definitely going to stay here again. Dave and Val were so gracious, and very tolerant of my long distance inquiries.

Room Tip: SO clean, comfy and very spacious. Bathrooms were HUGE!!!

Wonderful and cosy country house hotel where you feel at home from the very first step you enter
this location. And the owners Val and Dave surprised us with a mouth-watering dinner. Love this
banoffee dessert. Thanks a million.

What an incredibly nice pearl! The Cardhu Country House is truly in Speyside country. Thus, if you like Speyside scotches, this is a great place.
Dave & Val and their daughter Sarah, are doing an incredible job. The rooms are clean and well stocked with everyday amenities, soap etc... the real gem was the homemade biscuit (cookie) in the room.
The breakfast each day is cooked and served by the owners! They treat you like royalty. I had the traditional Scottish breakfast of haggis, eggs and tatty scones. The Creme de la creme was the evening meal! We had FRESH roasted salmon and a smoked haddock soufflé. The dessert was a lemon tort that I'm still drooling about!
I will be back! This hotel/B&B deserves 4 stars!
