My husband, my parents, and I chose this hotel because we wanted to stay in a "castle." It is a very stately home with a fascinating history. We were there on a Monday night and one of the few parties at the hotel. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We had a wonderful supper in the restaurant downstairs, and a full breakfast there the next morning. The hotel had just had a very busy weekend (we had originally planned to stay there for the weekend but couldn't get a room) and it seemed the staff had recovered quickly; the hotel was very polished and put back together. My husband says its a hotel with the flavor of a B&B. Its pretty close to Edinburgh (we had a car), Rosslyn, and the bypass which makes it convenient for seeing that area of Scotland. I gave a four for "comfort of room" because the mattress was a bit hard. But the hotel opened around 2003 so all of the facilities are very modern.

Three-floor hotel located one mile from the Fort William town centre, and just 400 metres from the Ben Nevis mountain …More
"A model of how to recover from an early problem."
Following an upsetting problem at check-in (the room booked, paid for, and confirmed 4 months ahead of arrival, and re-confirmed again the day before arrival but somehow double-booked and not available when we arrived), I have only good things to say about the way the hotel subsequently recovered our confidence and provided a really wonderful stay. An alternative room, albeit of a different type, was found and Jane, the manager, and all her team made us feel special and valued throughout our time there in all sorts of ways. The ambience, the food, the location, and the staff are all first rate. No hesitation at all in recommending. Really very good indeed.
Love Aviemore.Had a Gud nights sleep cud do with aurcondioning if it got hotter in summer.Went for a Early morning swim which was inclued in price.Also has a cinimia up in top hotel with upto date movies.Staff first class.
After a few "misses" during our Scotland tour, we decided to check in a day early and spend two nights here rather than the planned one night. BEST decision we made and best two days of our 11 day trip. Roger and his staff have thought of every little detail. The house itself is spectacular, and having stayed at many first class resorts, we have never been in a nicer suite. The surrounding area offers scenery and activities that we enjoyed far more than our time on Skye. We will be back, but for more than just two nights!
This is the third time we have stayed at The Lovat and we will be back again next year 2015. this hotel has everything you could wish for to make your stay a first class experience ...... well done to all and thank you
