Great friendly pub, stayed in the new accommodation when walking the great gen way, as a party of 5. It is on the route, great choice of food and an even better bar (remember to book), what is not to like.

Really nice spacious hotel. Does show signs of needing a bit of a makeover or new paint etc but other than that, it was a really lovely and comfortable stay! Amazing view of the Loch too!

Comfortable en-suite bunkhouse accommodation, recently opened. Linked to established hotel with restaurant and bar. Staff very friendly. Just off main road, Ideal Loch Ness location particularly for highland destination day trips by car, including Culloden and Skye. Second time we’ve stayed here and would definitely return again.

Excellent location for walking the Great Glen Way and they have 1 dog friendly room. Food in the evening and breakfast was very good. Only niggle was the shower. Tiny cubicle with a shower that didn't want to stay at the right temperature. Given the price of the room i did expect better.
