We stayed Saturday for my sisters special birthday. Liz checked us in AND offered to help with luggage as she showed us to our room which is something that rarely happens in many establishments these days! Our room was very comfortable and clean. Lovely staff. Didn't make it for breakfast but will definitely sample next time we visit! Thank you... More

We were allocated room 1 on a Friday night, big mistake. The sports bar entrance is just below the window and the noise was excessive due to patrons drinking and smoking on the benches provided,this went on from 9 o'clock to about 2 in the morning. Shouting swearing and singing seem to be the norm. The blinds on the windows... More

We had a family room. Spacious, clean and comfortable. A good sized bathroom. Staff on check in and check out were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was good and could help with Gluten Free requirements.

Stayed overnight on way north. The staff were very good, checked if a road problem had cleared for our onward journey, made us feel welcome and even arranged a slightly earlier breakfast for us-chef came in a bit earlier! Room was spotless and bed comfy with lovely white cotton sheets, noticed everywhere was clean which was lovely to see. We... More

Stayed overnight as we were attending a function elsewhere. No lift to our top floor room so glad we didn't have much luggage!! Room was great and everything as it should be. Just felt breakfast was maybe a bit understaffed, another couple told us they'd waited 55 minutes to be served. Food when it arrived though was good...........

My group of 8 golfers stayed in the Chieftain Hotel for 4 nights in July 2014. The staff was very helpful, friendly, & accommodating. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the center of the city, so it's less expensive than it would be if it were located a little closer to the River Ness. The sports bar in... More

I have stayed in this hotel almost every week so far during 2014 and every second week during 2013 on business. The staff, owner, make you feel so welcome that I now call this hotel my second home. I even brought my wife with me on a number of occasions and she too feels at home at The Chieftain Hotel.... More

We have just returned from walking the Great Glen Way and this was our last night and we were not disappointed, Rosie you are a credit to the hotel, nothing was to much bother for you, anything we needed I.e. Hairdryer, Batteries for the Remote Control, was dealt with swiftly. Our room which had one large double and a single... More

If not for the terrible loss of one of my most sentimental items, I probably wouldn’t have bothered writing a review about the hotel's poor service - there is never anyone manning the reception as all available staff worked at the bar and the bell at the reception needs to be rung a few times before someone turns up if...

Astounded to hear this, our Hotel is very sentimental to us! We feel our staff are very well mannered & take pride in our customer service. I can assure you the housekeeping staff or any other member of staff would not have taken your comb!! We have a lost property box for any items found & on most occasions have... More
