Stayed at the Lime Tree prior to a Jacobite train ride. The inn is on a busy street, but the noise dies down in the evening. Had a wonderful dinner and breakfast in their restaurant. Since the hotel is very old, we had some problems with water pressure and Internet service. They were understaffed and although the manager did her... More

A lovely place to start our Great Glen Walk. Very nice attic bedroom with comfy bed and large bathroom. Lovely views over the loch and hills opposite. Good breakfast choice in nice dining space. But best bit about the Lime Tree is the art gallery on site. What a treat to see paintings of Scottish landscapes.

Restaurant was superb!! Delicious fish and meat dishes and excellent desserts. Staff was professional friendly and helpful. The location in combination with the gallery is stunning. We only enjoyed the restaurant and didn't stay there.

My partner and myself stayed at this hotel back in March. From the initial booking way back in 2014 until our stay, communication between the hotel and myself was great as I was planning to proposing to my partner (I just wanted everything to be perfect, which the Lime Tree did!) Our two night stay at the Lime Tree was... More

Our room was on the top floor facing the Loch which was lovely but a bit chilly (in late July). Be sure to request a room facing the Loch. Wonderful redesign of former church manse. Internet did not work anywhere except the restaurant. Staff was friendly.

Only stayed for one night and my views are somewhat mixed. The common areas of the hotel were very nice and the room was very clean. The en suite, whilst clean, was a little tired - badly needed new flooring but not the end of the world. Breakfast, however, was truly awful. It was supposed to be a full cooked... More

We stayed at the Lime Tree largely because it had a well rated restaurant. However, when we checked in (at 5:45pm) we were told that we could have a table at 6:15 or 8:45. All tables in between had already been allocated. The attitude of the restaurant manager was "take it or leave it" - he really didn't seem to... More

Very much enjoyed our stay at Lime Tree Inn. We arrived with a very warm welcome and the room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We sat in one of the living rooms and enjoyed a drink after dinner. Only stayed 1 night wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend

We stayed on 31st May 2015. The rooms are great, location handy for the town, and staff are friendly, but the food was not up to standard. Evening meal veggie was a poor attempt at a 'mushroom stack'. Breakfast was a disaster. Asked for porridge, 'haven't any left'. I'll have Smoked Salmon and scrambled eggs, 'sorry haven't any of that... More
