We had one of the rooms with the King size four poster bed, chocolates and champagne when we arrived. Stayed for two nights bed breakfast and evening dinner. Food was great with good choice for dinner and for breakfast. In lovely location with good views and lovely walks

Had a great, relaxing weekend away in Dalrachney Lodge. Old fashioned in style in the main rooms of the hotel with a bit of class. Bedroom was excellent with good quality shower room en suite. Location and setting is great...woke up to a couple of inches of snow which really set things up.

Our second visit to this country house hotel, though our first under its current ownership - we were pleased to see that key amenities have experienced some quality modernisation, but without detracting from the traditional grandeur and charm of the impressive building. My wife and I were made to feel welcome, with attentive but unobtrusive service. At the end of...

We had a double room which was upgraded by the owners prior to our arrival, to a bigger one with a king size four poster bed which was soooooooo comfortable. The owner and staff were very attentive and service and food excellent. We had been for weekends to Dalrachney many times when the previous owners ran it and we were...

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the time spent relaxing with a whisky in the Drawing Room - exactly the way to relax at Dalrachney Lodge! Archie our Springer Spaniel is always grateful for attention from the guests, of course. We hope you are able to return in the future.

What a lovely B&B. Close to Aviemore but lovely and quiet. The decor throughout is gorgeous, lovely warm colours. We were upgraded for free which was an added bonus (four poster bed). And made a new friend, Archie the dog. Would stay again!!!

Very friendly atmosphere, clean rooms, nice mix of old and new. Food quality is excellent. I like the fact that pets are allowed in some of the rooms. Nice quiet surroundings on private land. The bar was well stocked, rooms have just been upgraded to a high quality.

We stayed at Dalrachney for 3 nights over New Year's Eve. The lodge has been beautifully and tastefully restored to a very high standard - lots of comfy tweed sofas, mounted stag's heads and tartan carpets to give a tasteful Scottish vibe!

We made a late booking for two nights at Dalrachney. We were the only guests in this beautiful atmospheric old shooting lodge. Gordon, Trixie and staff were the epitome of hosts and made us feel more like returning friends than guests. The room was spacious with fine linen and wonderful thick bathroom towels! Coming from the USA we really appreciated...

Discovered this gem whilst staying in Carrbridge recently. Set well off the beaten track in lovely gardens the owners of the Dalrachney lodge are most welcoming. It feels like dining in a private house which it virtually is. The food was excellent and there is a wonderful selection of whiskies! I thoroughly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to pay...

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
