We stay in Drumnadrochit several times a year, and whilst we don't stay at the Loch Ness Inn, we often call in for a drink and a sandwich at lunchtimes, so on our last visit we decided to ring and reserve a table and have an evening meal there. What a disappointment. The restaurant wasn't busy, and there were lots... More

We stayed here for one night, the room we were in was basic with a small bathroom, it was clean and tidy. The big negative was the amount of noise from the adjacent rooms, the room above and the shared access. I could hear the people upstairs talking, moving around and the toilet flushing, if you are bothered by noise... More

We decided to stay at Loch Ness Inn for a night on our travels around Scotland. Booked from Australia and had no problem with the booking. Nice, basic rooms with all you need. We ate at the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast the next morning and both meals were very good. The only complaint I would have was the... More

This place has a chef who knows what he is doing.. the location is also fantastic. The rump of lamb is excellent, and they serve local beer that you really cannot get elsewhere..the staff are also very friendly. Finally the cheese board is amazing, though they could give more cheese! (this is just because the cheese is so good).. if... More

Stayed here for three nights recently. Lovely welcome and shown to our room. Room was just fine with comfortable bed and super shower room. Toiletries were lovely. Had super breakfasts, especially the smoked haddock - it was scrumptious! Staff were very attentive and informative. We had our evening meals at the inn, good menu especially the 'Specials Board' and all... More

I would have no trouble recommending this small, cozy hotel. It had the feel of a one or two bedroom B and B, but it is in fact much larger. The bed was comfortable and clean, and the shower was great. For me, those are the most important things. As a bonus, the service was friendly and helpful, the breakfast... More

My husband and I decided to take a trip north to spend some time around Loch Ness and booked the Loch Ness Inn based on a personal recommendations and the positive Trip Advisor reviews. Unsurprisingly given its name, the hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of Urquhart Castle and, of course, Loch Ness itself. So, the scenery... More

Loved the Loch Ness Inn. Beautiful building with a restaurant, bar and big beer garden onto a river. We stayed two nights - one room in the annex (no. 4 - twin) and one in the main building (no. 10 - double). The rooms were clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. True, there is no wardrobe, but there... More

No need to say anything else really. We rented a cottage nearby, husband, wife & two adult children. We ate & drank here 3 or 4 times in our week. Very good each time. Highly recommend. Cheers & well done!
