Relax Revitalise Reconnect

Hi and welcome to Crystal House

Special Announcement

On the 27th October 2023, we at Crystal House closed our doors for the final time. We would like to thank all of our clients, guests, customers and friends for all the amazing times we have experienced over the last twelve and a half years.

Crystal House, within the building formerly known as Richmond Hotel, is a small family run retreat, guest house and Well Being Centre set in the Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer and nestled within the magnificent Highland scenery. The inspiration to call the place Crystal House came from the many large veins of clear quartz crystal gems that run through the granite stone blocks that had been used. Like any gem, it is multifaceted, offering a number of services.


Whilst retaining as many of the original features as possible and maintaining the style and decor of it's Victorian origins, it has comfortable modern facilities throughout. As a boutique styled establishment, each room is themed with a specific crystal and colour.  All rooms are en-suite with heated towel rails. 

Accommodation guests can choose to enjoy breakfast from continental style to a hearty cooked breakfast. You also have the option of sampling our restaurant menu with its specialist Mauritian cuisine and traditional favourites. We are able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements. Please inform a member of staff of your dietary requirements either at booking or on arrival. The bar provides over 25 speciality bottled beers, and in line with Scotland's Licensing Act 2005, has a policy around variety and quality rather than quantity.

We offer a wide range of well being services from the Alexander Technique to Life Coaching to Singing Bowls Sound Bath. We also work with a number of other Practitioners that offer their services within the house such as aromatherapy massages.

We host a number of workshops, courses, talks and other events throughout the year. We also host themed, pamper and holistic residential retreats.

Here at Crystal House we have a great interest in environmental and social justice issues and this is reflected in the way Crystal House purchases as many local, environmentally friendly and fairly traded goods as possible. Our approach was first recognised in 2014 when we achieved Gold standard in tripadvisor's greenleaders programme. An honour we still hold. Strathpeffer is a fair trade village and has retail outlets that offer a range of local crafts, environmentally friendly and fairly traded goods.

If you are looking for a different and unique experience, Crystal House is the place for you. The tranquillity of Crystal House is often remarked on by our guests who thoroughly enjoy its peace and quiet. Our friendly and welcoming approach along with being a small independent family run place, helps make Crystal House your home from home.
