I haven’t even finished my stay here at Muckbach but I have to rave about this hotel already! The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful and the way the inside is decorated is even better. Lucy, the house manager, is extremely kind and genuine, and really cares about your stay here at the Muckbach. The food is also amazing and not too expensive for what you’re getting. To top all of that off, they have a puppy named Harry! He’s a yellow lab and right now about 9 weeks old. He’s so sweet and of course adorable as ever! He’s the official hotel dog so if you stay here, you’ll have the pleasure of meeting this sweet boy. Overall, I recommend staying here as the staff will go above and beyond and the beautiful hotel building itself. More...
Booked in for dinner and it was a wonderful decision. Two in the party had the sirloin and rated it excellent. I had the Brie & Potato Wellington which was good, but not constructed as I had envisioned. Lovely, attentive service. Beautifully set in The old Muckrach Castle's hunting lodge. More...
Afternoon tea was delicious and plentiful! We had a lovely afternoon in this traditional hotel.
Beautiful hotel, decor is wonderful. Didn't stay here as I was staying at the castle which was a couple of minutes walk away. Had my birthday celebration dinner here with 8 friends. Food wasn't exceptional that's the reason for not giving 5 stars. Staff were attentive though More...
First class service. Accommodation and food highly recommend it excellent value for money.
Not a place you should drive past, it is amazing and the staff and management are very welcoming and professional in every way.
The rooms are to die for along with the food and drinks.
This has been a highlight of our trip in Scotland. More...
Lovely food, beautiful surroundings! Great hospitality! Perfect Evening!
My wife and I were doing a small tour of the beautiful Scottish highlands for our honeymoon, and had a wonderful time staying in a few different places and exploring the local areas.
Our final 2 nights were spent at the Muckrach Hotel, and want to say thank you to the team there for making it such a perfect end to our honeymoon.
We have spent time in a few beautiful hotels, each with their charm and good service, but what we received at Muckrach felt like something much more - there was a genuineness of care and kindness from all the staff, from management through to the chefs, which is quite hard to capture in a few words for a review.
The hotel itself is stunning, brimming with character - we enjoyed an evening of local speyside whiskeys (including a Muckrach exclusively branded marvel), reading our books in a lounge whilst a local pianist provided some wonderful background ambience.
The food and wine was great, and it's amusing to me that the story I tell friends and family about our honeymoon includes a detailed description of some porridge oats (they were that good).
All in all, we are extremely grateful that the story of our honeymoon ended the way it did, and can't think of anywhere more perfect to go for our anniversary next year. More...
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Muckrach Country House Hotel!! The hotel was just beautiful, both inside and out! We stayed in the Cairngorm room and it was amazing. I'm already missing those heated bathroom floor tiles! The staff was so kind and attentive, without being overly so. (It's always awkward when hotel staff is TOO concerned about you and seems to hover, but the staff here let us do our own thing and was always there if we needed them.) We loved the facilities so much, we spent a lot of time just enjoying the space there, reading in the library or relaxing by the fire in the drawing room. We could have easily stayed another 3 or 4 days, there is so much to do within driving distance of the hotel. We are already trying to figure out when we can come back and visit again! More...
Lovely country house, food was fantastic and the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Really appreciated the whisky selection and the managers knowledge of them.
Amazing place to stay. Contemporary take on traditional-themed Scottish decor. Yummy food and excellent customer service. I love going here even just for a meal.
We had a fantastic evening with a 12 person dinner party in a private room. Excellent food in a beautiful building. Staff were warm and welcoming. Splendid evening!
Stayed at muckrach for Hogmanay. Beautiful location, recently refurbished, quality plumbing, comfortable beds. Great food, superb service, quality management and loved the piper. Well done and thank you Mark and team More...
Lovely building, very cosy for the winter. Rooms are superbly comfy. Food was great and so were the cocktails. Perfect views and grounds
Gorgeous building and lovely welcoming staff. Only stopped for a meal, the food was great and the atmosphere was warm and relaxing. Will definitely return.
I can't wait to stay here - this review is about the dining experience. Quality food & drink at very reasonable prices. Service was okay - nice people, just too few of them so slightly overworked. Otherwise the place oozes quality... More...
