What we look for in a scottish hotel are nostalgia, thick tartan carpets, and cosy atmosphere!! I've never seen a thicker more attractive tartan carpet on the stairs. The slow cooked venison was marvellous. We watched a mother deer and baby from our bedroom window. And the service was excellent. Thank you.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed the traditional Scottish atmosphere of the hunting lodge, with deer to complete the picture. Hope to see you again.

Stayed for 4 nights in room 1 which is a very good room over looking the river and fields. This hotel is out of the town and is very quiet. Most visitors appeared to be staying 1 or 2 nights. Food was very good but limited with the same menu every night. I would have liked a little more choice....

Thank you very much for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. It is true to say that generally our guests tend to stay one or two nights and additionally we do not have a lot of non-residents eating and for that reason our menu does not change during the week. Having said that, our menu currently...

Found this hotel last minute on the net and what a lovely surprise it was after driving around the highlands on a weekend adventure. We were warmly greeted and looked after during our stay and had a lovely chat with Gordon, the proprietor, who looked after us in a non obtrusive way - nothing was any trouble. The room was...

From the moment we arrived at Dallrachney, we were treated as if we were the most important people, and the service was superb during our short stay. Our room was large and very well equipped, with a huge en suite bathroom, and a very comfortable bed. Our dinner was first class, and there is a very comfortable sitting room. My...

Booking online on spec can be a gamble but not with the Dalrachney Lodge Hotel. This is a little gem of a hotel which appears to have been recently refurbished to a high standard. The bedroom en suite facilities are superb and the food and wine truly excellent. The owners' attention to detail is very noticeable and very commendable. We...

Although in the centre of Carrbridge Dalrachney Lodge is tucked away and it has wonderful views of open country, with the river running along side the hotel . It has kept all the traditional Scottish features, the service and food was excellent .

This cozy Highlands hotel exudes warmth and friendliness. The room was clean, the bathroom recently redone, and the food was well-prepared sturdy highlander fare. The lounge area is a cozy place to while away an afternoon reading if the weather is dreary (plenty of books or DVDs to borrow). The staff, dog included, were helpful and welcoming.

Imagine a large country house in the Highlands and you come close to understanding the wonderful place that is Dalrachney Lodge.

I already knew the location was fantastic and various members of my family joined us for 4 nights, and took 6 rooms of the hotel.

Keep going past the big grey hotel in Carrbridge and turn right: comfy rooms and well-appointed bathrooms, great views over the big lawn, book-rammed drawing room for select malt- or gin-sipping, good food, all watched over by stags of loving grace...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dalrachney Lodge is an independent family run Country House Hotel in Carrbridge in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. We recognise how precious your relaxation and holiday time is away from home and we aim to provide a tranquil environment in which to enjoy our wonderful surroundings. Dalrachney Lodge a former Edwardian Hunting Lodge, is set in 3 acre grounds within the Cairngorms National Park and rests directly beside our own 1 km stretch of the Dulnain River. Our Bistro menu features locally sourced food and a good selection of whiskies. We have Egyptian cotton bed linen, Heirlooms towels and Floris toiletries in all rooms. Our Superior rooms have handmade Savoir Super King size beds. Having taken over just two years ago, a substantial renovation project is ongoing which has seen our Drawing Room and Bar/Bistro refurbished and completion of two new bedrooms with new en-suite bathrooms. In March 2015 a biomass boiler system was installed and another two new bathrooms have been completed. Investment in the Hotel is continuing with work starting on updating more bathrooms later in the year and a self-catering cottage will be available for rental in the Summer. We hope you will come and enjoy our Scottish hospitality and all the Cairngorms has to offer. ... more   less
