Celebrated our first anniversary after getting married in the Culloden last August. Always top service given by staff, extremely friendly yet professional. Given current situation with covid our stay allowed us to feel normal and safe

Lamb was over cooked. “While waiters ensure your glass never runs empty”, we had to refill our own glasses and find staff to order more drinks. Would expect more attentive staff if we were to dine in ultimate style.

We had a lovely evening in the Mitre restaurant and were particularly pleased that our friends were impressed by the whole experience. The food was beautiful and the amuse-bouche were delightful. Niall and Samantha were extremely attentive throughout the evening and the other waiting staff were both pleasant and welcoming. Thank you all for a 5* evening.

Fabulous! We had a first class champagne afternoon tea and all topped off with a lovely celebration slate from the venue to wish us a Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary!

This was a Birthday treat for my mother in law. I had noted this when I was making the online booking and a Birthday treat was very beautifully presented when we finished our lovely afternoon tea

Beautiful setting with a delicious selection of sandwiches/ scones/ desserts. However, would like to mention that the tea got cold too fast, we had to ask for it to be reheated a few times and there was a lot of constant disruption from guests being brought past us as the afternoon tea set up is very close to the reception. Overall it was a very pleasant afternoon and the lady who took care of us was very friendly and helpful.

I love the Culloden and have attended the Mitre Restaurant every Christmas for the last 10 years. On special occasions it's a no brainer to me where we should eat. It has ALWAYS been a special place for me and will continue to be so. Jennifer Dunbar served us last Christmas and last night, she's a great ambassador for the hotel.

Had a really enjoyable 60th birthday celebration. 7 adults and 3 x 2yr olds. Great service and very helpful with children. Food excellent, though no beef or chicken on menu.

As always everything was perfect, the food, the ambience and the staff. Jayde was lovely, very attentive and friendly. The only disappointment, on my husbands behalf was that the venison was out of season and wasn’t being served. It certainly didn’t stop us having a wonderful evening.

We recently enjoyed Afternoon Tea and a fantastic dinner, at The Mitre Restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff were fantastic, on both occasions. The restaurant is really very stylish and welcoming. The Somelier Zuzane was so professional, friendly and helpful. She was great, as were all the staff. The Culloden is a great hotel and the Mitre Restaurant certainly deserves its place within this 5 star hotel. Excellent chef.

The only downside was the atmosphere there was 8 people in a large dinning room. This was not the fault of the hotel I will certainly return.

Booking Service OnLine excellent allowing my wife and I to get a Dinner Time suitable to compliment our stay at the Hotel. Reception on arrival, Menu and quality of Food OUTSTANDING. Our server Norbert was outstanding providing 5 * service, interaction and delivery only worthy of the VERY BEST LOCATION. Food choice, Wine choice and additional dishes were simply superb rounded off by a high quality and beautifully presented Cheese Board. This location is superb and Management and excellent Staff have made this a MUST VISIT LOCATION. My wife and I were HIGHLY IMPRESSED with this FAULTLESS experience. It might only be one night on one date but it will live long in our memory as a truly WONDERFUL EATING EXPERIENCE. Many Congratulations to all .
