What a gem . From the warm and friendly owners and staff to the beautiful evening meal. The best mushroom soup (probably) is to be had here. Room was very pretty with comfortable bed. This is the place to stay in this area , don't miss it.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Very pleasant stay"
I stayed here recently on business. I don't usually review hotels but I was very impressed by the welcoming staff who went out of their way to make my short stay very pleasant. The hotel itself is a bit dated but I think it adds to it's character. Beds are very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious- particularly the coffee. Overall I had a lovely […] nights sleep and I will be staying here again if there are vacancies! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay at the Coul House was excellent from the welcome when we arrived, through some good meals to our departure. The hotel is a grand stately home but very casual and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for the family owners and staff and it is encouraging to see that staff have been there for some time. The location is excellent for sightseeing […] and mountain biking and there is indoor storage for bikes. The gardens and grounds were superb and it's clear that a lot of work has been done to make them appeal to a wide range of guests. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overnight at Coul House Contin"
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The owners have embarked on a labour of love in renovating and restoring this beautiful old country house and are bringing it into 21st century. Staff are extremely polite but not over-friendly and are only surpassed by the quality of food provided at excellent prices.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A beautiful escape in the country"
This is a long-term project by the owners, who have spent years bringing the hotel back from what sounded like a ruin ( they usefully give you annual "progress reports" from the start in you room index, which makes fascinating reading). in my opinion, they are succeeding magnificently! The service is efficient and friendly, the food is varied, delicious […] and well-presented, and the rooms are immaculately maintained. The bar/lounge area (which opens onto the large gardens) stocks a wide variety of local beers and spirits, supporting local businesses, and is a good place to relax before going in to dinner. There is a 9- hole putting range on the front "lawn", which is free for guests" but if you don't want such strenuous activity, a walk around the grounds is interesting in itself, with extensive, well-maintained gardens including a rane of exotic mature trees, such as giant sequoias and Douglas firs (helpfully labelled)! The hotel has magnificent views over the mountains and if you have more time, there are many walking trails which may be accessed from the hoel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A very enjoyable stay"
08/23/14 LynnDavis Glasgow
Early July we had a very enjoyable 2 night stay. The gardens are really beautiful and full of surprises, perfect for walking our 2 dogs. We returned after a busy day sightseeing to freshly baked scones with jam and cream. Perfection! We ate in the restaurant on the Saturday - the food was excellent and the ambience peaceful. The owners are around to say hello to guests and have gone out of their way to make this country house hotel very homely and they have achieved this very well. The service was excellent. We were in a dog friendly room which was very clean but a little tired , however from my experience of travelling in Scotland tired is fairly normal and the gardens and hotel ambience more than made up for it! I would definitely recommend this hotel.
"Charming hotel with comfortable/quiet room"
08/13/14 buckoHouston Houston
This is a gem of a hotel with dedicated staff that work quickly/efficiently together. We started with 3 nights and extended our stay by one night. Located in the country side and very peaceful and quiet. Excellent food for dinner/breakfast but the menu for dinner changed very little during our stay. Nothing negative to say about the facilities or the staff.
"Stay out of the city"
08/09/14 Matt M Hollywood, Florida
This was by far one of my favorite places that we stayed in the UK. The staff was fantastic, they are a truly caring sort that want to make your experience worthwhile. Everything about this room was great. The breakfast was spectacular as well as the dinner. If you want a place that will let you thoroughly enjoy the beauty of what is around you in Scotland, this is the place. It is quiet, out of the way, and yes your cell phone will probably have no service, but who cares. Wifi is great, has all the modern things you could ask for and a beautiful location to boot. When we go back, this will be the place we stay. Stay on the second story, have your window open and enjoy the true peace that follows you in.

A wonderful, charming hotel set in a lovely location. The gardens are great, the room was nice and cozy and the food was fantastic - dinner was amazing. The staff were super helpful and very friendly. We booked this the night before and got the last room but even that was more than adequate and the bed was very comfortable. It's in the middle of nowhere but that's part of its charm. Totally recommend it.

As our daughter lives nearly we just called in for tea and scones on a Sunday afternoon. It was wonderful, such friendly staff and a lovely sitting room to have our tea in. Not only did we get scones with lashings of cream and jam but also home made shortbread and home made tablet as well. It was so filling that we had no room left to add cake to our tea. All the staff we met were incredibly friendly and helpful as well as being unobtrusive a hard act to perfect. As well as sitting in the lounge we wandered out into the grounds afterwards and admired the specimen trees and beautiful views. A gem; next time we are up in Scotland we hope to eat here. Maybe they should run an hotel school to train other staff to their high standards!
"Lovely hotel. Exceptional food"
08/02/14 SkiDocEdzell Edzell
Lovely hotel in beautiful location Very enthusiastic and friendly staff. Adventurous and imaginative menu superbly presented. The Coupe Legoise dessert is to die for! Great breakfast. Large and airy octagonal dining room enhances the dining experience which is unhurried but attentive. Our bedroom was small but was what we booked. Would be worth going for the bigger rooms. Pricey but worth it.

Arrived here purely by chance and were extremely lucky to get the last available room. We were warmly welcomed by Stuart, the owner and this was mirrored by all the staff throughout our stay. Our room must have been the best room in the house with beautiful views over the garden a luxurious bathroom and a huge comfortable bed. It took us two drinks to decide what to eat as the choice on the menu was so wonderful. Prices were extremely reasonable for such fine dining. For breakfast next morning we were again spoilt for choice. Everything fresh and cooked to order. All in all a truly wonderful stay. The only disappointing aspect was that there was "no room at the inn" for us to stay a second night. However, we look forward to returning again soon. Thanks to everyone.
"Couldn't have asked for more"
07/29/14 Tonia B
I've been meaning to write a review to rave about how fantastic this place is for a long time. We arrived quite late after a very long drive during our tour of Scotland. The staff were fantastic. They got us booked in for dinner straight away and got us sat down in front of the fire to relax with a drink while they were getting our table ready. Dinner was great, panzanella salad was to die for (I've been dreaming of it for 4 months now). Service continued to be wonderful and everything was reasonably priced. The room was obviously dated but clean and well looked after. I really liked the little folder of updates and the story of the journey the owners has been on since they bought the hotel. Breakfast was also great. Very tasty and enjoyable. Would be worth the 10 hour drive to go back any day!
"1st visit, would and will happily return!"

Booked for short 1 night stay. Lovely location/grounds, a warm welcome on arrival, very friendly/efficient staff, fine dinner. Would happily recommend this hotel for the aforementioned reasons and it was fair/good value. No need to leave the hotel and plenty of areas to sit for a drink and chat etc, grounds were lovely and relaxing to walk in as weather was unusually warm & dry for Scotland! The driveway was a little bit tricky (long & stone chipped) on a motorbike so gently does it however absolutely fine by car and ample parking. All in all an excellent short stay and a big positive thumbs up for all the staff at Coul House who were 1st class! I look forward to popping back for a longer visit!
"Really enjoyable stay"

Lovely stay last night. Such a warm friendly welcome, very comfortable room and great food. It was very relaxing sitting outside in the sun. We were most impressed with everyone who worked at the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be back. Thank you.
