The service here is non-existent. The food over priced and abysmal. The crown jewel in this 'hotel' is the terrible rooms and lack of facilities! David Urqhaurt this place is not fit for purpose especially for the older generations who predominantly use the Garve Hotel. I have honestly never stayed in such an over priced (£45) backwards place in all... More

Stayed at the Garve hotel while on a bus trip with my wife, my best friend and his wife. The hotel is definitely well well past its best, the rooms are so small for two people and their luggage. Everything comes from the 1970s, no phones in the rooms the televisions are about 8 feet up the wall and looks... More

We were headed to Inverness for at least two days. It was end of Aug and nothing was available in Inverness at all. Found this really nice little Country Hotel, great price, even had a lift. Really close to Inverness(Garve is a short drive really). It was a really nice find. The counry hotel is exactly what it sounds like.... More

The Garve Country Hotel is part of the Hart Hotels Group, in turn owned by David Urquhart Travel as a base for its coach tours. Thus, expect it to be used predominately by the more mature traveller that such attracts. If that sounds like an atmosphere reeking of liniment with the hallway stacked out with zimmers then forget it; those... More

This was the best value-for-money my wife and I have ever had. However, it was definately for older people. We had thre nights (four days) at the Garve Hotel starting 2nd January 2015. Pick up from Hamilton, the journey to Garve, near Inverness, got better the further we went. Great views through the Cairngorms. Next day went to Skye via... More

Stayed at this hotel 17th to 21st November with David Urquhart. The manager came onto the bus and told everyone their room numbers, cases were taken to rooms by staff. I cannot fault this hotel, the staff, food and efficiency was first class. There was entertainment every night which was good. The only downside was the entertainment not starting until... More

I visited The Garve Country Hotel as part of a Highland Adventure on a Bus tour with Urquart. This was the first trip of this kind I've been on, as we usually drive. I was delighted with my stay here, I knew by the price I paid it would be very basic. "Boy was I wrong !" The hotel is... More

Just returned today from a David Urquhart coach trip which was from Friday to Monday. The theme was Christmas although it was Halloween. The hotel was very nicely decorated and obviously lots of effort had been put into the work. As we were late bookers we were allocated a room in the annex. The room was large and had everything...
