3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Great views and staff, shame about the food
Hotel is overlooking Loch Ness which is nice. Very friendly staff. Unfortunately the food was not great - especially dinner - would recommend eating out as it was overpriced for what it was. Sort of thing my grandparents would enjoy - quite old fashioned. Also, whilst the rooms are dog friendly dogs are not allowed anywhere else in the hotel, eg the bar area (obviously appreciate dogs wouldn’t be allowed in restaurant). So the dog had to stay in the room - plus as the hotel rules say dogs can’t be left unattended in room that meant we also had to be confined to it as well! However, the staff were very helpful and friendly so this review is not a reflection on them at all. The hotel is fine for 1 night stopover but I would not recommend a longer stay here especially with dogs.

Excellent hotel. Staff were superb. Room was large with super king size bed. Only down side was the electric shower. Not very powerful.

Very nice stay
The hotel seems to be very old. That’s no bad thing. Located a mile or so outside the town it is not really practical to walk in as there are no pavements. The room was huge but on the side of the hotel so sadly I didn’t get a view of the hills. The bed was also huge but clearly two pushed together as there was a distinct divide. The bathroom was a good size but the toilet didn’t work. When I mentioned it I was told that I could use a toilet in another room - hardly practical. I did consider moving but the other room smelt badly of cigarette smoke so I didn’t bother and used the Himalayan method! I didn’t eat at the hotel so can’t comment on the food.
