At this establishment, renovated in 2006, guests will experience country living at its finest. The hotel is a building in Georgian style, dating back to the 18th century, and incorporates a fortified mid-16th century castle set in endless parklands. Culloden House was requisitioned by Bonnie Prince Charlie during the Jacobean uprising and used as his lodging and battle headquarters prior to the fateful and final battle on Culloden Moor in 1746. The Palladian style interior features ornate plasterwork, fine antiques, and marble fireplaces to complement the warm Scottish hospitality. On offer are a total of 28 rooms, in addition to a lobby area with a reception desk manned around the clock, a safe, a currency exchange facility, a cloakroom, conference facilities, and an Internet connection via W-LAN. Guests may also take advantage of the bar, restaurant, and the room and laundry services. Additional amenities include bicycle hire (charges apply) and parking for those arriving by car.
This attractive county house is surrounded by around 16 hectares of wonderful gardens and peaceful parklands where deer roam. It lies only some 5 km from Inverness, and guests will find Culloden Battlefield, the Highland Glens, Cawdor Castle, the Clava Cairns, and more than 35 golf courses in the immediate vicinity.
The lavishly furnished bedrooms are individually decorated in understated comfort, underlining the character of a Georgian house. Guests may choose between opulent period suites and contemporary master and standard rooms, which offer modern-day facilities in a pleasant Scottish atmosphere. All accommodation units come with a complete en suite bathroom with hairdryer, a direct dial telephone, satellite/ cable TV, a radio, a hi-fi, a king-size bed, air conditioning, central heating, and a hire safe as standard.
