We've just spent 2 nights here whilst touring Scotland. Our room was large and well appointed with a comfortable bed and great shower. Breakfast was ideal - plenty of choice including smoked haddock and eggs Benedict as well as the usual full Highland. Restaurant food was also good, although it was very busy as there are not that many places... More

A last minute decision led us to booking a one night stay at this gorgeous little inn. The staff that checked us in were so friendly and the room itself was very nice with a great shower! The meal was also fantastic, although our waitress seemed a bit shy or nervous and took a bit too long to notice we... More

We stayed at the Loch Ness Inn for one night. It was quite pleasant but we have seen nicer places for cheaper. For dinner I had the seafood linguini which was a little lacking in actual seafood I felt. For breakfast I had the Scottish pancakes but there was nothing Scottish about them and they were pretty average. Not a... More

My partner and I planned a trip up to the highlands as my partner had never been before. We booked this hotel on my dad's recommendation and it was easy to find being well sign posted. We arrived early and were shown to our room. The room was very nice and spacious and there were some complimentary bottles of water.... More

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and had such a lovely time. Beautiful food & great staff. Rooms were lovely and clean too. The drinks in the pub were great, nice local ale. Drumnadrochit is a great place to visit with very friendly and welcoming people. There are lots of local attractions such as Urquhart Castle and Glen Affric... More

A true hidden gem at the Loch. This hotel, tucked away and rural from anywhere of convenience offers a true taste of what the Scottish highlands has to offer; peace , tranquility and beauty. An outstanding hotel which offered most comforts and above all a pleasant service and warm atmosphere. With its friendly staff, its free parking, its comfortable rooms,... More

A local recommended that we stop at the Inn for a meal on our visit to the Loch Ness. We ended up only having time for an appetizer and glass of wine, but that was superb. We had the best fish chowder we've ever tasted. The restaurant is quaint and parking was readily available. This was one of the highlights... More

I love food, so would recommend this hotel to the food lovers. Excellent quality and not expensive at all. My parents had the daily specials, one of them is pan fried plaice,which was quite nice. I had the 10 ounce ribeye steak, I would give it an average rating. Rooms are a bit small, but very clean. Can hear guests... More

The Loch Ness Inn was lovely, clean crisp rooms, comfortable, homely, welcoming and fantastic shower and bathroom. The staff were great and the food was just superb-breakfast and evening meals-try the haggis and the local beer! All in all, we loved our stay and would highly recommend to anyone-short walk into Drummnodrochit and then also visited Loch Ness Exhibition-a fantastic... More

A huge free car park, large bed room with shower off. The design of the building means all the rooms are off one long corridor. this can sometimes lead to people walking past your room late at night, also the extractor for the kitchen is noisy, and can be heard until food service stops. We found closing the windows on... More
