I can't find the words to adequately express how much we enjoyed our recent stay here. The hotel is wonderful, elegantly decorated and yet so relaxing, you really feel that you can kick your shoes off and truly relax, in fact that is one of the first things the lovely Scott said to us on our arrival!

This was hands down our favorite lodging during our two weeks in Scotland. Increasing our enjoyment and pleasure was not only the impeccable accomodations but the delightful company of the hotel owner, Scott and his staff. He was a charmer, warm, caring and generous of spirit. He engaged us during personal and individual conversations especially appreciated by a talkative person... More

The Lodge is absolutely superb! Scott and his team are really courteous, helpful and kind. The spa is relaxing, rooms amazing and outstanding breakfast. There is an absolutely amazing view of the Loch Ness from most of the parts of the hotel. Allow yourself to have this once in a lifetime experience!

Breakfast included, omelet with salmon, bacon, sausage, fruit, haddock, baked goods, fresh orange juice and more. So delicious!!! The hotel was well maintained and clean.

Scott, who runs the hotel, is the best host I've had at any hotel I've stayed at. I've never been so well taken care of in a hotel. My husband and I have just returned from a 5-night stay at this hotel, and we didn't want to leave. The setting was so beautiful, right on the lake, with a gorgeously... More

Four of us visited Loch Ness Lodge today and we had the most delicious afternoon tea we have ever had. The sandwiches were beautifully presented and the cakes were sublime. The scones and the sponge cake were obviously freshly made, and the orange and raspberry shots were delicious. The glass of bubbly went down a treat too! Scott, as ever,... More

My husband and I and two other couples stayed at Loch Ness Lodge for two nights towards the end of our Great Glen Walk. It was intended as a luxurious reward towards the end of our walk and to provide a rest day in case any of the party were feeling a little weary! It certainly filled the bill. As... More
