I have never stayed in the hotel, but as a visitor to aultbea for 25 years the lodge was always a welcoming place for my self, wife and two children. we have eaten and drank there more times than can be remembered. John and Francis were always the perfect hosts and nothing ever seems too much trouble to them. So... More

Having read some reviews I was a bit apprehensive but quickly realised they were totally unfounded. Whilst not really a scenery person. The location of hotel and views were excellent. On arrival it was very late but for proprietors this was not a problem. Shown to room very swiftly. Food excellent. Whisky tour by John was very good and worth... More

I stayed here with a group of friends for a night. I have to say that some of the negative reviews left by others are unjustified. The evening meal we were given (T Bone steak) was fantastic, and the included breakfast was absolutely outstanding. Yes, the hotel has areas where improvement would be beneficial, but this appears to be in... More

I arrived in it terrible autumn weather to learn more about whisky and whisky making. I was the only guest in the hotel, and poor John and Frances were working very hard at renovation. I was made to feel totally welcome, and had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay with them. John is incredibly knowledgeable about whisky, and was very... More

Stayed here while working and i can honestly say it is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. Room was freezing, toilet was blocked, hotel had a terrible smell, couple who owned the hotel were very very rude. The only good thing about this stay was that the job got cancelled and i only had to stay 1 night... More

We were looking forward to a nice cosy night in a hotel after two rainy, cold nights camping. The hotel smells of wet dog, the room was perishing and had a very strange musty, damp smell. There was no key for the door. Really a very bad representation of Scottish hospitality. I have no idea why people think this is... More
