This hotel was recommended to us for lunch whilst on a visit to Glenfarclas distillery and it did not disappoint. A fabulous setting for this traditional country house hotel which has been renovated to a superb standard. A great ambience with very friendly staff and an excellent menu for lunch. Will definitely visit again on our annual trip to this...

My wife and I visited the hotel for the Easter break and we're sad to say it was a massive let down. Hugely under staffed with no sign of management for the 4 nights we stayed. The food was good and some of the staff were excellent (barmen stood out) but overall it was a poor experience and I couldn't...

We stayed 5 nights over easter. This was our first holiday since our daughter was born, and the hotel was wonderful in accommodating our needs and baby led timetables (i.e. having dinner before restaurant is formally open at night). We stayed in the Benromach room and it was very comfortable and luxurious. Being an old house that was recently renovated,...

What a shame. This is a hotel we regularly visit on our many trips to the Spey Valley. Afternoon teas and evening drinks can be enjoyed in the sumptuous surroundings. Sadly tonight the experience was so disappointing. We arrived having driven from Nethybridge just seeking some quick evening drinks in one of the lounges. We were somewhat taken aback when...

Thought Andersons was the best restaurant in the area. May have to revise that following our visit to Muckrach for lunch. Idyllic setting and views, beautiful building, extremely tastefully furnished and decorated. Dining conservatory delightful. Nice menu, very competitively priced (£13.95 for two courses, £18.95 for three). Nice people too.
