cULLEN BAY
4 stars 4

'Thankyou. My stay was most relaxing. Your staff are very kind and thoughtful and helpful having helped me up to my room on a couple of occasions, which i really appreciated. The room was spacious and clean as was the bathroom. The food was delicious. I would have no wualms recommending you to family or friends. There are 2 comments i would make , not on the negative but perhaps you can sort these 2 minor things out. The table and chairs at the beautiful bay windows is a great idea for a workspace but no actual electric sockets near enough to plug my computer into and as a guest with arthritis i found the room a wee bit cool later in the evening. Otherwise no quibble at all. I have sent pictures to my family in Canada as a recommendation of a lovely place to stay with good food good rooms fantastic staff and beautiful views of the sea especially from room 6. I will be booking for a wee break again. Many thanks. Dawn Wallace'

'My elderly mother and I had a very pleasant one night stay for a small family reunion. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We had a lovely meal in the dining room and the staff were friendly and helpful. It would have been better for my mother had there been a lift but she did manage the stairs - however others less fit might have struggled. We know it\'s difficult in old buildings, though, to put lifts in so this is not a complaint. We\'d certainly come back.'

Our rooms were all light, airy and very clean and we all enjoyed our meals in th evening which were chosen from a good varied menu. The only criticism we would make is for a mirror to be erected at the bottom of the driveway to enable a better view of traffic coming from the left when trying to turn right towards Cullen.'

'Delighted with my selection. Welcomed by helpful and local staff, and really pleased with comfortable sea view room, finished to good standard. Nothing quite like having Cullen Skink in Cullen - a really tasty bowl of the great Scottish is. Always a bot wary of ordering a steak - but shouldn\'t have worried - emphasis was on quality not quantity and \'rare\' done really well. Breakfast was an equal success, meals cooked to order, and quite a few different options - grilled haggis and poached eggs was a real treat. ...and then - just to cap it all off - a display of dolphins in the bay. Great - I\'ll be back.'

'Our room was the best in the hotel - the turret in the top right-hand corner of the frontage. It was clean, bright and modern and gave us fantastic views of Cullen Bay - if only more sunshine could have been arranged! However, the best thing about this hotel was the staff, all of whom were cheerfully efficient in going about their work and making our stay the more pleasurable for it. Well done Ian and Rena on selecting and training such a great group of youngsters. Downside? The softness of mattresses is always a subjective thing but we found ours to be a tad hard for real comfort, and the movement sensor in the en-suite needed to be adjusted to prevent showering in the dark but we even got used to that! A great stay, thank you!!'

The Turret Room was very panoramic offering beautiful views of the golf course & beach. The bed was huge & very comfortable. The shower was spacious with a large shower head that was very therapeutic when using. The restaurant looked over the golf course & beach & the food was very mouthwatering to eat. Each course had a little piece of individuality to it & each plate had a large amount of hot individually prepared food with a colourful touch. The staff were extremely friendly going out of their way to help. I\'d recommend this hotel to anyone & give it a well deserved 10/10.'

Our Wedding at the Cullen Bay on 2nd April 2016
5 stars 5

'My husband and I got married at the Cullen Bay on the 2nd April 2016 and we could not be happier with our choice of venue. From our very first inquiry all the way through to the morning after the wedding we were made to feel valued and important and we were provided with excellent service from all members of staff. The hotel catered to our personal requests and were very accommodating to our specific needs on the day of the wedding, providing advice, suggestions and alternative solutions to potential problems. Rena, Ian and Ellis were so professional, friendly and approachable and knew exactly how to throw a good wedding! The day of the wedding was incredibly smooth with the staff ensuring every major and minor detail ran without any problems. Both the ceremony room and function room for the reception were beautifully done with the guests commenting on what a great venue we chose. Our meal was delicious with great sized portions and the hotel were happy to cater for dietary requirements and those who requested special menus. Both rooms I stayed in over the wedding weekend were lovely: very spacious, comfortable, modern and with a beautiful view of the Moray Firth. Our guests were very pleased with their rooms and the breakfast that was included in the price. The breakfast menu was excellent due the varied selection that ensured there was something for everyone. Again, the hotel were happy to alter the breakfasts to suit individual preferences. Overall, we are incredibly grateful to Rena, Ian and Ellis and all the staff at the Cullen Bay for the hard work they put into making our Wedding Day so special and unique. We would happily recommend this hotel to any future couples looking for a special venue for their wedding.'

Relaxing Break
5 stars 5

'Stayed just one night as part of a short break touring from Inverness along the Moray Coast. Although the hotel was quiet - being a Sunday and past the end of the busy season - everything was perfect. Room nicely refurbished, public areas were comfortable and well maintained and staff found that balance between being available but not intrusive. Despite having seen some on-line reviews that suggested the food might not be good quality or ample portions, these didn\'t match with our experience with excellent dishes and portions that meant a desert wasn\'t physically possible to fit in. Would definitely stay again.'

'I travel around Scotland on business so to wake up in the morning, have breakfast in front of a large window over looking a gold course with the sea in the distance, then to go for a 30 minute walk to the beach and back was a fantastic way to spend the morning before work.

We were made to feel very welcome at both the reception desk and in the restaurant. James deserves a particular mention for being so attentive. As it was a beautiful day, we sat out in the lovely sheltered garden (behind the hotel) for drinks in the late afternoon. The food was superb, with a good selection of fish and meat dishes. We are planning to come back to Cullen for a visit in the winter when we can watch the stormy seas from the hotel window! (The sea was flat calm on our recent visit).'

The restaurant serve traditional Scottish fare including the freshest of seafood and have a good variety of choices. The view from all public rooms and most bedrooms is outstanding with a golf course opposite and the sandy beaches of Cullen Bay beneath. Care needs to be taken when crossing the road as there is a bend nearby. It is only a short walk to the town centre with its traditional fishing village houses, harbour and there are antique centres, whole food cafes and small stores. It is a place to chill out and relax.'

The lady on reception offered to check what the chef could do for me and returned offering a choice of 3 options - as a vegetarian, more than I usually get when kitchens are open! The friendly waitress then also insisted that I should have dessert, by this time an hour past closing. Both dinner and breakfast were excellent, and the restaurant\'s sea view is stunning. My room was spotless, spacious and comfortable. If visiting Cullen again, I would not stay anywhere else.'

'We can’t recommend this hotel highly enough. The owners and staff were so attentive and went out of their way to be of help and make us feel welcome. Cullen is a beautiful town and the Cullen Bay Hotel has one of the best views we have ever seen. The dining room has a fabulous uninterrupted view over the bay which is matched by the excellent food. You have a golf course on your doorstep, a fabulous beach to walk along and the national coastal cycle path – which is literally across the road, allows you to visit some of the quaint villages along the Moray coast by foot or pedal-power. On the Saturday evening, much to my husband’s disappointment, by the time we ordered dinner they had sold out of their very popular Cullen Skink. The owner came over to apologise and offered to make his special recipe – ‘Cullen Skink with a Twist’ for him the next day! At dinner the next night my husband was treated to not one but two bowls of delicious soup – it made his day!'

As we were meeting up with friends at meal times the only food we had was breakfast but this was very nice. The Staff and management were all very friendly and helpful. We will certainly be going back and will recommend to other people :-)'

My stay at Cullen Bay Hotel
5 stars 5

'My son ,Granddaughter and myself stayed at Cullen Bay Hotel for the half term (16th -21st ) and I would like to express how much we enjoyed it. The staff were so friendly and the food was absolutely fantastic with plenty of various dishes available. The rooms were kept in immaculate condition and the prices were competitive too. The scenery was beautiful looking out over Cullen bay and my granddaughter loved the parks and playing in the sand (although it was quite cold , but sunny!!)We shall certainly be returning to this hotel in the near future!!'

Hogmanay Event

'Perfect from start to finish. Room exceptionally clean and fresh; very welcoming owners; fabulous meal at night and excellent breakfast on New Year\'s morning. Very relaxed atmosphere and would definitely visit again. Only slight disappointment were the number of young children running around at high speed in the function suite during the Hogmanay dance which was rather off putting for us \'oldies\' in regard to going on to the dance floor. However, the kids were happy and no screaming or fighting which was good! Thanks for a lovely start to 2015. Diane & Brian M'

Window seats looking out over the golf course and Cullen Bay, excellent menu and our choices beautifully cooked and served. Short but excellent wine list, extensive malt list!

'I don't normally bother sending in a review but I just wanted to let you know how much my wife and I enjoyed our stay with you. I always think a business is only as good as its front line staff and I would like to say that your staff are as good as or probably better than any that I have encountered before, and I have stayed in many hotels. Everybody had a smile on their face and seemed genuinely pleased to be at their work and it contributed hugely to our time with you. Really enjoyed the food as well so compliments to the chef. I know that you told us that you just took over the hotel last summer. Whilst I cannot comment on the hotel under the previous management, I can say that you are making a great job of it so far. Hopefully we will stay with you again sometime if we are back in the area. All the best.'

5 stars 5

'After spending 12 nights, I think I can say I've had an overall excellent experience. The food, the staff, the room, parking, view.. absolutely nothing serious to complain about. I do think the cleaning staff should pay a bit more attention to restocking coffee, sugar and such when in the rooms. I've had to ask for these items too often for my taste. And I would find a way to strengthen the WiFi signal to the rooms that have trouble receiving a signal. This became a bit frustrating when in online mid-chat. I'm looking forward to sharing the positive side of my stay on Tripadvisor. Thank you again for everything and see you in a few months.'

Our Stay at Cullen Bay Hotel
5 stars 5

'We have recently stayed at the Cullen Bay Hotel and have nothing but praise for the whole time we were there. The staff were second to none, really friendly, attentive and made us feel very welcome indeed. We ate in the restaurant and the food on all three nights was excellent, absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Our compliments to the Chef, especially for the Cullen Skink, the local fish soup. It was the best I had ever tasted! The rooms were spotlessly clean and well presented. All had a sea view which was so lovely. An en-suite bathroom in each room produced clean and wonderfully soft towels each day.I cannot praise the Hotel enough. We also had a private function on one of the afternoons and this was dealt with so well. The food, again, was first class as was the service from the staff. We shall most certainly be staying here again and our sincere thanks to all at the Hotel who made our stay so enjoyable. You can be proud of your staff and most certainly of your Hotel.'

Some of the bedrooms could do with a litte updating now as they are a little cramped but perfectly functional. Suggestion perhaps the ensuite facilities could be reduced slightly to enlarge the bedroom. Food was excellent as usual, those breakfasts are super and an excellent evening selection. Always enjoy our stay at Cullen Bay and its location makes it an excellent base to visit other wonderful sites in the area, what a beautiful part of the Country. Certainly will visit again.'

'Took my wife and 2 children (7 and 11 years old) to celebrate my wifes 40th birthday (she wante dto see whales and dolphins in the Moray Firth). It was our first trip to this part of Scotland and obviously therefore our first stay at Cullen Bay hotel. From the inital phone call to book the room, to our departure at the end of our 4 night stay, I have to say everything was perfect. The staff ar eso friendly and welcoming and the food was first class - never had Cullen Skink before, but it is at the top of the recommendation list along with the 'to die for' tablet (given at the end of the meal each night - gorgeous!). The location is fantastic with breathtaking views of the coast and although we didnt see any dolphins in the bay we were assured they were frequent visitors. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone who will be travelling in the area and I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed - 5 star in every department!'

'This is the 4th Year that all our family have stayed at The Cullen Bay and the fact that we return every year speaks for itself. The owners are helpful and courteous and accommodating. The hotel is well situated with stunning views over the sea and we believe that the rates charged including breakfast represent good value for money. Yes anyone can find faults with anything if you look hard enough but we are more than happy staying there.A really good breakfast is provided and the food at dinner is very good.There is a nice bar and separate small lounge. We have all our young nieces and nephews staying in cottages around and about and when we want the to come to dinner with us or tea the hotel is always very accommodating and helpful. We hope to be there next year all 11 of us and would recommend the Cullen Bay.'

'stayed as a party of six adults age range from 56 to 80 years old as diamond wedding present to my parents. the hotel itself has wonderful sea views from the bedrooms and from the dining and breakfast room. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with nice little touches such as boxes of tissues,shoe shine kit and travel kit together with toiletries and bathrobe. The food was excellent and would recommend the haggis & haddi for breakfast - to die for! The owner and all the staff were very friendly and it was nice to be acknowledged by the staff, my mum had a nice chat with the young girls who waited on our table at dinner. Both were very pleasant & chatty which is a credit to the hotel owners. The bar staff and the breakfast waitress also very friendly and polite. My husband and brother have decided to go back next year to play golf and I am sure my sister in law and myself will enjoy sitting with a book and a glass of wine taking in the lovely sea views. Thank you for a lovely weekend and my parents thoroughly enjoyed their stay. PS we pass the hotel on our way from Inverness to Peterhead regularly and have always said would love to stay there- been there, done that and going back !Thank you.

'we had a very nice time at Cullen Bay Hotel. The rooms were comfortable, the food was tasty, and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. It was a great location for our tour of the whisky country.'
