Excellent value, nice room with a very comfortable bed. Bar is a lovely place to spend an evening in front of the open fire with a glass of wine or dram. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff. Good breakfast with cooked option and granola and yoghurts. Will be back again!

Last night we spent our first wedding anniversary at Castle Venlaw. There are not enough words to describe how WONDERFUL our stay was!! The hotel is stunning, our room was just gorgeous, the view fabulous and the food was deliciously perfect. The staff could not have made us more welcome if they tried. We will most certainly be going back...
