We were lucky enough to drop into the Loch Hotel on our trip around Scotland It is a quaint little place with lots of atmosphere. The owners, Andrew and Jenny were fantastic. The accommodation is very clean and the food was excellent . Highly recommended!

Just returned from a superb February 2014 family gathering at Loch Kinord Hotel. Welcome was warm and check in efficient. All of our rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Dinner in the Restaurant was excellent. Selection was varied, expertly cooked and presented - worthy of 5 stars. Breakfast was also great. Service was excellent throughout our stay - Monica... More

My husband and I stayed in Room 5 - the bedroom was comfy but the en suite was not clean, mould on the wall and tiles and the ceiling fan even worse - overall maintenance was lacking and for £80 we expected the standard to be better. We had an evening meal in the restaurant which was superb and the... More

The presentation and quality of food served was to a 5 star standard, fine dining at it's best. The fireworks display on the... More

There was more, including a magnificent fireworks display just after midnight on 1st January followed by... More

We had chosen this hotel from trip advisor because of it's location and reviews. In particular the gourmet restaurant which was the high point of our stay there. The down side, and I emphasise a slight dissapointment rather than a reason never to return is that we booked their premium room but found it small with the space taken up... More

Spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel last week and could not praise the service, food and comfort enough. We also had the room with 4 poster bed and whirlpool bath - very impressive. Planning to go back next year already
