My wife and I had the good fortune to stay here for 5 nights in mid-Sept 2015. We used it as a base for many day trips in the area. We opted for this "luxury" but cosy experience based on the setting, previous TA reviews, and if we encountered "difficult"weather for travel/touring/hiking, a place we could enjoy just sitting and...

On way home from a wonderful stay here. A truly unique experience. Staff are lovely, and nothing is too much trouble. The lodge is immaculate, like new, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. It's peaceful, and homely too. The food is done to perfection and served the same. It's picturesque and pretty. I've stayed in top hotels all over the world,... More

We stayed at the lodge for three nights and found everything to be perfect. We loved the surroundings, the settings and everything from the cleanliness to the service was faultless. Previous places we have stayed in with high standards can seem generally slightly stuffy but not in this case. Scott the proprietor couldn't be more warm, friendly, helpful and welcoming... More

We rearranged our travel plans to be able to stay (they were full our original days). Didn't get the room we wanted, but Oykel worked out fine. A bit more room would have been preferred. The Lodge is beautifully decorated. It uses many touches to remind you that you are in Scotland, but all so very tasteful! It was a... More

Loch Ness Lodge is a dream come true. The lodge nestles into the side of Loch Ness, offering breathtaking views and one of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. The manager, Scott, is a truly wonderful host who complements the luxurious surroundings with a hospitality style that is almost over-whelming in its generosity. The afternoon tea is not... More

We loved, loved, loved the Loch Ness Lodge. It is a small boutique inn run by a family and they could not have been more friendly or welcoming.
