About this Hotel

Situated just a twenty five minute drive north of Inverness, Coul House Hotel is a charming 1820's MacKenzie mansion which has been lovingly restored to offer classic country rooms, delicious food and a warm and friendly welcome. Our characterful hotel sits in beautiful grounds and we are situated on the doorstep of the North Coast 500 routing leading into the Highland wilderness. Weddings, corporate events and team building days are all well catered for and we are also perfect for relaxing family stays or romantic breaks.

Well behaved pets are welcome at an extra charge.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

Guests can choose from a range of room types with many looking out over either the garden or mountains. All are superbly appointed with a Smart TV, tea/ coffee making supplies, Wi-Fi, an ensuite bathroom, ironing facilities and a hairdryer. Solo travellers are well catered for in our small single rooms and we also have small double rooms, large double/ twin rooms and superior double/ twin rooms. Our four poster master bedroom with beautiful freestanding bath is particularly ideal for romantic and extra special stays.

Our rates also include a full breakfast and we can cater for special diets by prior arrangement. 

Restaurant / Licensed bar

We are pleased to offer a fine range of contemporary Scottish cuisine and traditional favourites whether you are visiting us for lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or just a light snack. Guests can also relax in one of our beautiful ornate lounge areas or in the licensed bar with a single malt or a drink from our range of wines, spirits and local beers.

The Garden

Our extensive grounds are home to a host of rare species and offer acres of freedom to enjoy right on the doorstep. Younger guests will love exploring the Fairy and Scary trails or test your skills at the putt and putt area. There are plenty of seating areas where you can relax and afternoon tea is served on the lawn each day.

Weddings / Conferences

Each wedding is truly unique and we work with guests to create a tailor-made wedding package designed to suit both your needs and budget. Our hotel is licensed for civil ceremonies and we can cater for up to 80 during the day and 140 in the evening.

Corporate events are also very welcome ranging from small meetings up to multi-day conferences and our largest room, The Octagonal, can seat 70 theatre or banquet style. Team building days are also welcome and we can arrange a host of activities - please contact us to discuss your requirements.
