We stayed for 1 night at the Garve Hotel. We found the staff to be nice & friendly. We didn't dine there in the evening but did have breakfast which we found to be quite satisfactory. We knew from other reviews that the hotel décor was quite dated so were not too surprised when we got there to see just... More

Stayed here as part of an Urquhart tour, which to be fair, was at a very low price. I wasn't expecting too much, but even with lowered expectations we were extremely disappointed. Hotel is very dated. The food was terrible. Shower was either freezing cold or scalding. Pillows were wafer thin. Light in the bedroom wasn't working on arrival and... More

We stayed at the hotel with David Urquhart Travel. It was for a wonderful price, so weren't expecting much. From the outside, the hotel looks shabby and the rooms weren't much better. however it was very clean and tidy. Our television was almost on the ceiling. However, throughout our 3 nights, the staff were all just wonderful and the service... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with my elderly mother , we were on a coach trip. Manager and staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. Food was excellent and rooms very clean. This is an old hotel but the warm welcome make up for that ten times over.

Enjoyed my stay at The Garve Hotel. Whilst the hotel was a bit dated it certainly didn't spoil my stay. Everywhere was very clean and the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. I had a small problem with my room and no sooner had I notified the staff about it and the problem was rectified. Thanks to... More

Had A Lovely Weekend Break Hotel Clean , Staff Pleasant And Good Choice Of Food And £1.50 Bar What More Could You Ask For lol.Ok The Hotel Maybe A Bit Dated But I Think Overmodernising Could Take Character Away From Hotel But Could Definately Do With Showers In Every Room.

Just spent 4 nights at this hotel through David Urquhart Travel and despite the negative comments on this hotel my wife and I found it acceptable nothing more. We were accommodated in a two bedroom apartment which although could have done with a makeover it was not too bad other than the sealing around the bath as completely mouldy. The... More

Stayed for one night midweek with a colleague. Rooms very light early in the morning as curtains not great. Little internet in the rooms but available in the lounge. Dinner only served 6.30-7pm. Good games room downstairs, average breakfast. Overall average stay.
