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!

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.

We had a lovely stay. The owners are welcoming and the food delicious. They provide a full breakfast and offer dinner for a reasonable price. The surrounding area is stunning and easy access to the Whiskey Trail (within steps of the Cardhu Distillery), hiking and a local wool mill.

Country gem in the middle of barley growing whiskey distillery country near Inverness - brilliant service from the friendly and helpful owner Dave - wonderful breakfasts and tranquility in a beautiful country setting. Cardhu distillery literally next door the home of Johnny Walker blend and Glenfiddich only 25 mins away - and try the country pub atmosphere and good meals...

Pleasant and most accommodating stay. Excellent and friendly hosts. Rooms had all that was expected.Meals were equal to those found in good restaurant. Located in a peaceful and beautiful environment not far from renowned distilleries. A good place to stop at when touring Scotland.
