Travelled for three hrs with my family and was totally shocked at what we found. A very old smelly and filthy hotel, bar closed, kept their dogs in the lounge, clearly no cooking on the premises but would'nt have eaten there anyway, hardly a whole stick of furniture in the room.  Should not be open for business.......steer clear!!!!

My dad and I were on a fly-by-night trip in Scotland for a month. We found Beauly on the map and decided to stay there for the night. We stumbled upon the Caledonian and were not disappointed. We were welcomed with open arms by Ian and Kath and the cat Calligula. We were treated to a great dinner of lamb... More

The inn/hotel is dated and kitschy, but I enjoyed it. It feels like an old inn that's remained half-frozen since the 70's. The proprietors Iain and Cathy are hospitable and friendly and complimentary morning breakfast is cooked! There's no open entry (door is occasionally locked and accessible by buzzing Iain or Cathy) and no in-room fridges (although there is complimentary... More

We spent 2 weekends there. It was comfortable & friendly and did a hearty breakfast.Comfy beds and I say beds as I have stayed there before. Warm and cosy, plenty hot water and clean towels! A big thank-you to Iain, his partner and his lovely staff, we'll be back!

Stayed here with a couple of mates for the Bealach Mhor Sportive. Having read some of the reviews I was not sure what to expect but feared the worst. I am pleased to say it was absolutely fine, the building may be old and the decor perhaps dated but my room was clean and the bed was comfy. The owner... More

Pre booked this trip to get some serious walking done in the Highlands with my mate. I phoned the owner (Iain?) the day before and confirmed everything ok and told him approximate time of our arrival. Late afternoon, as arranged, we arrived after a nine hour drive to find the front door locked - there was a phone number scrawled... More

My fiance, her daughter and I booked in for 2 nights but we walked out after less than 10 minutes. The smell of stale urine that permeated the place made us all gag, there was dog poo lying in the courtyard below the "smokers" balcony, I say smokers balcony as there was an ash tray there that looked like it...

Great breakfast with lovely Scottish bacon etc. talked with other guests over breakfast which was interesting . Basic rooms but clean. No extras like shower gel etc. kettle and cups fortea/coffee making. Somewhat dated but fine to stay in and moderately priced. Car parking on pavement outside door. Wifi provided which was great. Outside would not inspire you to stay... More
