Verified guests have rated this hotel out of a possible score of 20

There’s often good reason to be skeptical about hotels with celebrity connections, but it’s plain that this one is a labor of love — the Scottish tennis champion Andy Murray grew up in Dunblane, the next town over, so when Cromlix, a family favorite, came on the market, he jumped at the chance. And what’s perhaps most surprising for a classic hotel with a young celebrity owner is just how traditional Cromlix remains.

It’s a proper Victorian-era country house, built in 1880, and while it’s seen quite a bit of attention from more than one contemporary designer, the basic character of the place is left very much intact. Intact, but never exaggerated; there are Scottish luxury hotels that go in for heavy tartan kitsch, but this is not one of them. (The suites are named for famous Scots, but that’s as far as it goes.) In fact as modern-classic country-house hotels go, it’s more or less the state of the art, right down to the iPod docking sound systems and the 32-inch televisions, cleverly hidden behind mirrors so as not to disturb the Victorian atmosphere.

With just ten rooms and five suites, it’s smallish, but when it comes to services, there’s nothing left out. Chez Roux, the restaurant, is a major draw, for guests and locals alike, housed in a glass-walled conservatory whose modern décor stands in sharp (but welcome) contrast to the Victorian house. Meanwhile all the classic country-house activities, from snooker to fishing to shooting, are present and accounted for, and there’s a tennis court as well, naturally, in Wimbledon green and blue. And there’s golf — Gleneagles is close by, as are a half-dozen other fine, if slightly less illustrious, clubs.
