Stayed here for 3 nights. Overall, I had an excellent stay. Check in was very quick with staff very friendly. I loved the room, it was a top floor room and loved the quirkiness, the different "nooks and crannies" and the various small windows. Was fresh, bright and airy. Room was cleaned each day with fresh towels. I had a... More

Stayed here on a last minute online deal. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was very spacious with a large en suite bathroom. Decor was a bit dated to my taste but everything in the room was clean and fresh. Bed was very comfortable. Would recommend this hotel as a budget stop over.

Came here for dinner as we were staying close-by and decided to eat there because the menu looked very good. When we walked into the restaurant, however, it was totally silent despite there being a few groups of people in there. Service was inititally frosty, but food was good and service warmed up considerably. Overall I'm not sure I'd go... More

I stayed here for two nights with 5 friends at the end of our bicycle ride from Lands End to John O'Groats. Beauly was obviously a very prosperous town in Victorian times but seems to be struggling a little at the moment. The hotel comprises a number of buildings and our rooms were in the adjacent Gladstone House (what looked... More

After struggling to find somewhere nice to eat around the Beauly area, we decided to try the Lovat. Service is slow and we had to go looking for someone to serve us and the menu looked OK but not too extensive, though a little pricey. The pork loins I had were over cooked and dry and the black pudding was... More

Nice hotel and great value for money. Staff are very helpful and the food is good and reasonably priced. Breakfast, especially, was served very promptly, which was great as I had slept longer than expected as the room was very comfortable. Bar, breakfast and reception staff were all great and I will definitely stay here again. Only one negative was... More

We arrived and were quickly shown to our table. We were then given the wrong menu, then the waitress fell out with the girl behind the bar and started arguing. We got our drinks which were also wrong and then our food didn't come with chips or toast so we had to wait for about 10 minutes for that. Overall... More

Great wee hotel with bags of character. Well worth its AA 3 star rating. Staff were attentive and polite. Rooms bright and cheery. Wifi available at no extra cost. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Although I did not have dinner menu looked good. A good honest hotel which I would return to.
