We are not snobs and were not looking for 5 stars but this hotel was disappointing! On arrival was not impressed with exterior of hotel - looked uncared for and was a sign of things to come. Allocated room 1 - small, tired carpet and 2 single beds that both had loose headboards. En-suite bathroom or cupboard was tiny, no... More

If you decide to stay at Mackenzies you must know that you'll get what you pay for. The Highland Inn is not a 4 star accomodation but it is definitely worth the money you have to pay for. The food is good and the staff is friendly. Our room was tiny, but clean and comfortable. Because of the price I... More

We go to thunder in the glen every year and spend most of our time here!! Great food, great drinks and great friendly staff that take time out to get to know you! They even remembered what we drank! Going to book a room in winter time! Food n drink are well priced!

We visited this hotel in July and stayed for two long nights. Unfortunately, all other rooms in area filled. The staff and food were good, but the hotel itself was in need of a lot of TLC. Our room was tiny, there was about 2 feet of space around the bed, could not even roll in my suitcase. Bathroom was... More

We have ate at Mackenzies,before but had not tried their burgers. Great bun, with great taste and presentation. We just had to go back on the Wednesday for their two steaks and wine deal. The steak was prefect and had a great taste, not only this but the choice of any wine on the list! All this for £30! We... More

After our wonderful trip up the Cairn Gorm we made our way to Mackenzies Highland Inn for lunch. We chose our meal from the Special's board, we both had Hake, Chips, Salad and Garden Peas I must admit I was unsure of Hake, I really only eat Haddock, Cod on the rare occasion, Jonny assured me it was a white...

We stayed for one night at Mackenzies Highland Inn. I did not realize before we got there, but be advised that the pub has live music on Fridays and Saturdays until past midnight, and if you stay on that side of the hotel you will feel it coming through the floor even if you manage to drown out the sound...

Mackenzies Highland Inn is centrally located clean and with very friendly and helpful staff. On the down side it is a fully functioning pub and as such can be noisy late at night but what do you expect if you book a room over a pub? We stayed 2 nights for £130 that is for bed and breakfast. Breakfast was... More

Don't stay here if you want to sleep. We booked the hotel hoping to get a good nights sleep but have not managed it yet at 01:00. This is due to terrible mattresses, unbelievably bad pub singer, drunk guests in room next door and paper thin walls. Wallpaper peeling off in the room. Can't wait to get out tomorrow.
