Great location.
Beautiful B&B. The owners were lovely and so kind. We arrived towards midnight on the first day as we were driving all the way from London and they were flexible with our arrival which was appreciated. We made them aware of our vegan food requirements before arriving so they had vegan haggis and other nice things for our breakfast. I would only say that it would be great if breakfast could be available until 10am upon request the day before as finishing breakfast serving by 9am is a little difficult for those who are not very early risers when on holiday. Perfect location for many distilleries!

Fantastic place to stay thank you
We completed this while on the Speyside walk and the hosts were extremely welcoming and they have an amazing house and home. We were exceptionally complementary and would definitely like to stay again. We really appreciate the extra effort you put in and the food was probably the best I have had in a hotel. If walking from the Spey please look out for the shortcut through the woods that says Cardu which will take 10 minutes off of your walk.

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! From start to finish, you just can't fault Cardhu Country House. Warm hospitality, fantastic food and a beautiful house all rolled into what can only be the best B&B experience in the whole of the UK. This was our second visit and we'll no doubt be back for many more visits to come.

A lovely relaxing stay
A very enjoyable two-night stay at this lovely B&B in a beautiful and peaceful location in the heart of Speyside. We were made very welcome by Dave and Val. Our room was very comfortable, with a nice view over the garden. We opted for the set menu dinner on both nights. The food was delicious, both for breakfast and dinner (definitely restaurant quality!). We hope to book again in the not-too-distant future so we can explore the area in more detail. We look forward to returning soon. Thank you for a lovely stay.
